Bout of Books 14: Day One!





Number of pages I’ve read today: 88

Books I read from: Swerve by Vicki Pettersson

#todayinsixwords: Fun Twitter chat and good book!

I managed to get some reading time in over my lunch break yesterday, and while I walked on the treadmill last night. The book is intense and pretty gory – not used to a lot of gore in my books. But, so far it’s good. Glad I remembered the Twitter chat last night. It was a lot of fun!


Today’s challenge is hosted by The Book Monsters and is a book scavenger hunt! You can take your own pictures or use images you find online. Here’s mine!

1. A Book that begins with “B”  (for Bout of Books!)
2. A book your planning to read/currently reading for Bout of Books
3. Blue Book(s)
4. Books from your favorite genre!
5. A book on your TBR shelf, or your full TBR shelves





I’ll be posting daily updates and participating in any challenges I can.  Hope everyone participating has a great week! If you want to still sign up, you can do so here.

So, we know I’m a moody reader, and picking a TBR pile is usually a wasted effort. But, it’s still fun to do anyway. Here are the books I’d like to read. In NO way will I ever read them all – hell, I’ll be lucky to finish one of them. It’s a bit of a variety from romance to fantasy. I have been wanting to start this Bardugo series forever and I’m hoping that declaring it a BOB read will force me to start it. 😉

I’ve already started reading Swerve, and I’m hooked. Lately I’m feeling very underwhelmed by what I’ve been reading, and I hope that changes this week with whatever I pick up. I need something epic!
