ONE WEEK STICKY: Bout of Books 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, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

   Reading Goals

This week will be all about Paranormal themed books because of a challenge I'm doing where it's paranormal month. I'm also doing the Team Towers challenge on Goodreads (Team Darth Vader), which started the 4th, so getting a bunch of books banked at the start is a smart choice. Let's see how time interferes with those plans...

Currently Reading that I'd like to finish / or start (choices): Needful Things, Re-read Working for the Devil (Dante Valentine, #1), Salt to the Sea , The Witchfinder's Sister , Personal Demons (Megan Chase, #1),Killers of the Flower Moon, Wait for What Will Come,  Becoming,  You're Never Weird on the Internet ,  The Code of the Woosters , The Necromancer's Dance (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer, #1) , Books of Blood: Volume 2  

Realistically I'll probably finish 3-4. I'm almost done with the re-read of Working for the Devil and Salt to the Sea. Wait for What will come is halfway done. Becoming is 40% done and a quick read. You're Never Weird on the Internet has about 200 pages left. The rest I still need to start. (Whew)

Books read
: 85 Pages of Wait for What will Come by Barbara Michaels

Things I learned on Twitter: That I get more amusement out of demotivational sayings than I do motivational sayings. I found out the character Emma Swan will not be returning if the show does besides one episode in Once Upon a Time. I also found out I miss when people kept using the fun but so-me #EvilScientistProblems tag.

Daily Challenge: Introduce yourself #insixwords   
Happy, obsessive, blessed reader for life.

Total number of books I’ve finished today: 2

Books read: Read 185 pages of Personal Demons (finished), 92 pages of Wait for What will Come (Finished), and 140 pages of New Moon

Things I learned on Twitter: Apparently today is National Teacher's Day, which doesn't affect me at all this year. People make so much art with Oreos of all things that #MyOreoCreation is trending. My Twitter friends/feeds seem obsessed with wine and motivation. Who is this Harry guy with the hair??

Daily Challenge: Not a Font
(
Share a book cover where illustrations are part of the typography of the title.)

Hm. Not as easy as I thought, but found this cute one that fits with pipes

Books read: I didn't finish a book but I read a lot. I read 230 pages of Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer (yes, going through the Twilight series for the first time with mixed results) and 189 pages of this romance, The Necromancer's Dance (that is amazing). I would have finished it but I ended up already staying up past midnight and have to work the next morning.

Things I learned on Twitter: That twitter has apparently gotten so scary the tagline that is trending today is #HowToSurviveTwitter 😡
