Bout of Books 18: TBR and Goals with Alexa

Bout of Books 18
It has been a while since I participated in a Bout of Books read-a-thon. I think this was always because I was working/on call or on vacation during the last few. I’m excited to only have a 4 day work week this week as well as no on call hours this week so I’m going to live it up by reading!
Some Info About the Read-a-Thon:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 2nd and runs through Sunday, January 8th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 18 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team


Three of these books I have already started so I want to focus on finishing all of these books and starting the fourth one.

~Finish The Rogue Not Taken
~Finish Furthermore
~Finish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
~Blood Vow


Day 1:
Pages Read Today: 282 (Page 477-759 HP #7)
Total Pages Read: 282
Feelings: I’m so happy I finished HP#7 today. I forgot how the book doesn’t stop moving once you get to the last 250ish pages. I have a new appreciation for the seventh book now that I’m older.

Day 2:
Pages Read Today: 40 (Page 106-146 The Rogue Not Taken)
Total Pages Read: 322
Feelings: Wish I had more time to read today but I’m still happy to have managed 40 pages. Hope to keep reading this one tomorrow.

Day 3:
Pages Read Today: 73  (Page 147-220 The Rogue Not Taken)
Total Pages Read: 395
Feelings: I am really enjoying The Rogue Not Taken. I hope to get pretty close to finishing it tomorrow.

Day 4:
Pages Read Today: 29 (Page 221-250 The Rogue Not Taken)
Total Pages Read: 424
Feelings: I really wanted to read but I was exhausted from work and so I called it an early night and went to bed after only a few chapters.

Day 5:
Pages Read Today: 0
Total Pages Read: 424
Feelings: I was exhausted from work again and I didn’t really feel in the mood to read.

Day 6:
Pages Read Today: 289 (Page 251-417 The Rogue Not Taken & Page 1-123 Body and Soul)
Total Pages Read: 713
Feelings: I’m really happy to finish The Rogue Not Taken it was a really great story. I also deviated from my plans and decided to start Body and Soul instead of reading Blood Vow. I think I have given up on Furthermore because it isn’t doing it for me and it might be a DNF for me.

Day 7:

    Looks like you’re doing quite well! Sorry to hear you weren’t a fan of Furthermore. I haven’t read anything by Tahereh Mafi, but she seems like one of those authors that people either love or hate. Good luck with the last day of the readathon!
