Bout of Books 20: Alexa’s TBR & Progress

Bout of Books
It is time for Bout of Books 20!
This is a week long readathon where the goal is to just have fun and read books. There are no set challenges which makes this an easy readathon for me to join. I already have a stack of books that I need to read for The Reading Quest so I’m going to keep jumping into those books during Bout of Books. So far I have not yet finished a book for The Reading Quest cause I was very busy with working numerous days in a row and then had a trip on the weekend. I hope to read 1000 pages this week so I can catch up on the quest.


Official Blurb from Bout of Books:

Day 3
Pages Read Today: 143
Midnight at the Electric (pg 158-257)
The Lost Hero (pg 250-294)
Total Pages Read: 239
Feelings: I finished Midnight at the Electric! I also made a dent in Lost Hero. I ended up falling asleep early so I didn’t get to read any more but I’m hoping to read more on Thursday and Friday night and also dedicate myself to reading this weekend!


Day 4
Pages Read Today: 75
Geekerella (pg 1-75)
Total Pages Read: 314
Feelings: I wanted to read when I got home but yard work needed to be done so I spent about two hours out front clearing up dead bushes and weeds and fixing things after all the rain storms we have had. I did enjoy the start of Geekerella though and want to read more!


Day 5
Pages Read Today: 0
Total Pages Read: 314
Feelings: I had every intention of reading the night away but I as I was driving home from work I got a bad headache that turned into a migraine so I just couldn’t get my eyes to focus on reading. I ended up having to lay down and take a lot of naps and keep myself away from the light.


Day 6
Pages Read Today: 350
The Lost Hero (pg 295-553)
Burn for Me (pg 1-92)
Total Pages Read: 664
Feelings: I had all day to do what I wanted and so of course I read a lot on and off all day. I finished The Lost Hero which I’m really happy about because it was a big book. I thought at times the story dragged on in places and that Riordan still makes his characters sound a little young even though they are all around 16 in this one. I also got a good start on Burn for Me. Late last night I got to a really juicy part and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
