Bout of Books: Wrap-up

Bout of Books

Bout of Books Finish Line :D

Woooohoooo, we did it! While I’ve signed up for Bout of Books before, this was the first time that I was able to really increase my reading and participate a little bit ;-). As the road-trip continued, I realized that I had no internet access on the final stop, so I’m sorry for suddenly no longer updating and I didn’t get to join any challenges or chats :(. Goals for next time!

All in all I finished 6 books! Two of them were novellas ;-). I also made progress on my read-a-long book. Here they are:

  • Gameboard of the Gods – started a while ago and finished on Monday. Quite enjoyable, recommended for adult sci-fi fans!
  • Legion – novella which I listened to on audio. Started on Sunday, finished on Monday.
  • Siege and Storm – ARC borrowed from a friend that obviously HAD to get read :D. Started on Tuesday, finished on Wednesday and so much love!
  • Through the Door – Netgalley book that has already been published. Started on Wednesday, progress on Thursday, finished on Friday. This was a really fun celtic inspired fantasy (set in modern day), I do recommend you trying it if you got your hands on  a copy.
  • And All the Stars – Netgalley book from aaaages ago that I never got to. What was wrong with me?? This alien invasion apocalypse story was so awesome. Started on Saturday, finished on Sunday and highly recommended if you have an alien invasion craving after 5th Wave ;-).
  • Among the Nameless Stars – Funny story, I got my titles mixed up and thought this one was the above from Netgalley, then realized it was too short and was actually the novella that I had downloaded free, haha. Anyway, I loved this prequel and am going to be ordering For Darkness Shows the Stars asap. Read on Saturday.
  • The Dragon Reborn – This is my read-a-long book that I’m so behind on, but I made progress and hopefully can finish this week in time for the grand finale posts :D.

This was such a successful read-a-thon for me, I never read this many books this quickly! I still have a lot of review books that I need to get going on, but first to the review writing, haha!

How did you read-a-thon go???

    Since I wasn’t able to participate in this Readathon, I’m half tempted to hold my own personal readathon sometime in June, just so that I can have the fun of it, even if I’m the only one doing it and there’s no community aspect. Sometimes it can be really fun to just throw myself into one book after another, and it will definitely help me clear some stuff of the TBR mountain!

    Glad you had fun with this readathon, and that you accomplished your goals!

    • No worries, you had a good excuse to be gone! Isn’t there a wildfire read-a-thon happening in June? I remember seeing it and being like “omg I can’t do another read-a-thon, my work ethic is already having so much trouble”, haha.

  2. Yay, congrats on your reading – great number of books read, and some really interesting sounding ones too! :-D Hope you had a fun read-a-thon!

    Wow, that is an impressive amount of books read!! *cheer* I think I need to take a lesson from you in just bloody reading.

    • Haha, it helped that I was stuck in a car for 26 hours over the course of the week! (9 hours one way, 12 hours back, several hour drives in between D:)

  4. Jenn @ A Glo-Worm Reads says:

    Awesome! You did much better than me! I read 4 books and started a fifth, by Wednesday. I didn’t finish it though. Then started a 6th and didn’t finish that one either.. :P
