Bout of Books 13.0 Wrapup


Starting on the 15th I didn’t read anything the rest of the week. I finished the book The Color of Happiness *review up next week!* and made some major progress in Shadow Scale. I have about 150 pages left of Shadow Scale and am so happy I’m almost done. This is the book that has put me in a slump and I’m glad I’m out of it now! I had an awesome weekend going to graduation parties with my boyfriend and saying farewell to my graduating friends. I had a movie night at my house and we watched Dirty Dancing. Best movie ever; definitely one of my favorites. All in all this was a really awesome week. I’m glad I participated in Bout of Books even if I didn’t make a ton of progress like I’d wanted to. Did you read anything during Bout of Books?

Bout of Books 13.0 – Day Three


Today I continued reading from Shadow Scale and am not hating it as much. I still really just want to be done with it, but I am just getting closer. I am going to try and finish this book by the end of the week and then start another review book. I will read this during study hall then after school. I just want to be done and move on to another book!

Bout of Books 13.0 – Day Two


Today I finished a book that has gotten me out of my reading slump! I started The Color of Happiness a couple days ago, and I just finished it. I received this book in exchange for a review, so the review will be up some time next week. I am very happy with myself that I finished this book! I plan on finishing Shadow Scale before the end of the week and I think I can finally do it. I’ve been reading it for so long, but now it’s not as bad as I was thinking. I had to trudge through it before, but I just read 30ish pages today and it didn’t seem that bad.

Bout of Books 13.0 – Day One


Today I saw that Bout of Books 13.0 started so I decided to give it a try. I don’t have a formal TBR but I will be reading whatever I feel like. I have some review books started that I plan to finish this week and am getting a new book for book club so that will also be included. I have tried Bout of Books before and have failed miserably, but this week I’m going to try and finish a couple books if at all possible.

2014 in Review + Readathon Update


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Today I finished Blog Inc. and the review for that will be up on Wednesday of this week. I only had to read 25 pages to finish that book, but I also continued on with The Power of Half. I have read 12 pages of that at the moment, but plan on continuing on with that tonight. Making my page grand total for the day: 37 pages. Woo. Go me. This is honestly pathetic, but hey.
