Total # of pages read: 163

Books I read from: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

#todayinsixwords: Finally starting series – hope it’s amazing!

Not getting as much read as I wanted to the past few days, but that’s okay. I was too busy at work yesterday to read over lunch. Hoping today is different, because I’m really liking my book and want to dive back in! This series is getting so much love, I’m glad I’m finally trying it.



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. 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!
