Daily Updates
 Monday 5/13-
What I’m reading: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

Pages Read: 156

I had a hard time starting off yesterday because I was in a really bad mood. I had a heck of a time getting into this book but I think it was just from having a bad day & not being able to shut off my mind & get wrapped up in the book. I also missed the first Twitter chat because I was on the phone venting to my mom. Hopefully Tuesday goes better!
Tuesday 5/14
What I’m reading: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa
Pages read: 256. I’m almost done with this book- I’m at 92% finished & I can’t keep my eyes open any longer so I’m calling it a day!
Wednesday 5/15
What I’m reading: Finished up The Eternity Cure (8:30am update). Next, starting Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare.
Pages read: 72 🙁 But I did participate in the Twitter chat & met some cool new book people!
Thursday 5/16 
What I’m reading:
 Pages read: 0. It was my husband’s day off and we were out and about all day. Good quality time but absolutely zero reading. Also thinking of switching books because I’m not into this one so far.
Friday 5/17
What I’m reading: I didn’t read anything on Friday either…life is getting in the way this time 🙁
Pages read: 0
Saturday 5/18 
What I’m reading: I’m switching to Stung by Bethany Wiggins & hoping to get sucked in today! 1:30pm update: OK, finished this already! Going to start another one, Poison by Bridget Zinn. It was recommended to me by Sarah!


Pages read: 404
Sunday 5/19
What I’m reading: Going to finish Poison today & hopefully start another! Sucks that I finally get into a good reading groove the day before Bout of Books ends. Oh well, hoping to finish up strong. Yesterday I got the Twitter chat times wrong (dang it!) so I’m hoping to join the chats today! I have an alarm set on my phone this time 🙂
Pages read: 1:30pm update- 188 so far (finished Poison).

 Summary of Bout of Books
Books read:
Total pages read: 1,076
  • Read at least 150 pages each day Averaged 153 pgs per day
  • Finish 3 books Done!
  • Participate in Twitter chats I participated in 3 I believe. So fun!
  • Connect with new blog friends who love to read! Done! Socialized & followed some new friends.

 OK, it took me a little bit to get into reading this time. Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday were my husband’s days off, so that kind of messed with my reading on those days. I also started & decided to skip Clockwork Prince. It’s been a while since I read The Mortal Instruments, and while I enjoyed the series, I’ve pretty much lost my interest in the characters and had a hard time getting into it. I wish I would have started off with Stung & Poison because I loved them.

Big thanks to everyone involved in putting together and hosting Bout of Books, and a big huge thanks to my friend Sarah for getting me into BOB. Can’t wait for the next one already. Will you join me? It’s in August, so you have plenty of time to think about it. I’m definitely in!
