Updates

#todayinsixwords: finished strong – best reading week ever

Although I didn’t get into the challenges this week, or get a chance to participate in any of the Twitter chats, I finished 4 books and surpassed my page count for the last BoB. I’m very pleased with that! It’s the first time I’ve read every book I set as a goal as well. I had so much fun reading all week, especially since I loved almost everything I read. This was a great way to start off the new year. Hopefully my reading mojo continues beyond this week.

I hope everyone had a fun BoB week! I’m already looking forward to the next one.


 

Saturday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 83

#todayinsixwords: shocking ending – can’t wait part two!

I spent all morning cleaning and organizing my house, getting my daughter’s playroom and bedroom organized after the Christmas tornado hit. Then the rest of the day was for entertaining the peanut. By the time I got her to bed and sat down to read, I was spent. I did finish Never Never and it was awesome. So unique, as I always expect from Hoover & Fisher. Definitely a wicked cliffhanger, but I expected it and wasn’t irritated as I normally would be. And it was a pretty sweet cliffhanger, too. Can’t wait for part two in May!

I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get done today. Kinda hoping to settle in this morning with some coffee and enjoy a book for awhile. My plans for today are laundry and being lazy the rest of the day. Happy last day of BoB!


Friday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 57

Total number of pages read: 671

Books I read from: Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

#todayinsixwords: why must i be so tired

After a long week, getting back into a routine, and maybe having a few glasses of wine last night – I wasn’t able to stay awake very long to read. But I am loving Never Never and will finish it today. It’s fantastic. Overall, I’m really happy with my reading this week. Looking at the last BoB, I finished 3 books and read 773 pages, and I think I have a good chance of at least meeting that or surpassing it. How’s everyone else doing?


Thursday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 146

Total number of pages read: 614

Books I read from: Hero by Samantha Young

Books finished: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah & Hero by Samantha Young

#todayinsixwords: just enough energy to finish book

The later nights I’ve had all week finally caught up to me last night. Managed to stay awake (barely) long enough to finish a book, and didn’t have it in me to start a new one. I finished Hero and loved it! I’ve been a fan of Young’s books for awhile, but I think this may be my favorite book of hers. So far my first 2 books of 2015 have been fantastic, which is a great way to start the new year. Today I’m going to dive into Never Never because it was released a few days early. Can’t wait!

I skipped the challenges again yesterday. I’ve just been focusing on reading and visiting blogs.

Happy Reading today!


Wednesday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 184

Total number of pages read: 468

Books I read from: Hero by Samantha Young

Books finished: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

#todayinsixwords: didn’t want to put book down

Really glad I picked up this Samantha Young book because it’s so good I haven’t wanted to put it down. I was enjoying it so much last night that I ended up skipping the Twitter chat. I really hope to finish it today!


Tuesday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 54

Total number of pages read: 284

Books I read from: Hero by Samantha Young

Books finished: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

#todayinsixwords: too tired to read much today

I skipped the challenge because my brain was fried. Staying up late the night before reading, when I have to work the next day, isn’t always a great idea. No reading over lunch because I had a hair appointment, and was too tired to get very far in my book last night. But the good new is that I started Hero and am completely in love with it already. I’m looking forward to picking it back up today. Bad news is my sweet daughter randomly woke up at 2 AM this morning, and I’m feeling super sleepy, now. I see an early bedtime in my future and not much reading tonight.


Monday

Number of pages I’ve read today: 230

Books I read from: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah & Contradictions by Tiffany King

Books finished: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

#todayinsixwords: holy sob fest – very sad book!

I stayed up way later than I should have last night finishing this book, but once it got to a certain point, I just couldn’t put it down. I have not cried so much reading a book in a very long time. Now, where’s the coffee.

Hope everyone had a fun first day of BOB!
