{Bout of Books 19} Day Three

 

 

It’s not the book, because the book is fantastic. It’s me. I had a really busy day yesterday, and by the time I sat down to read, all I wanted to do was sleep. In fact, hubby and I went to bed early. So, I suck at being a bookworm this week. 😀

Well, yesterday wasn’t the best reading day. Too busy and then too tired. I’m really hoping I can get more time to read today. Especially because I am already loving The Queen and the Cure!

{Bout of Books 19} Day One

 

 

After a really busy weekend, I didn’t have much time to prepare or even think about the week ahead. But I LOVE BoB week, so despite a busy schedule the next couple of days, I’m going to try to read as much as possible and participate as much as I can. I didn’t bother setting any goals – I’ll just be happy to read at all.

I’m in a bit of a book funk and have had trouble settling on a book for the past few days. I probably started about 7 books and put them all down after a few chapters. I just don’t know what I’m in the mood for! I hate when this happens – especially when it’s a BoB week!! Last night I decided to pick up the ARC I have of the new Sarah Morgan book. I love her books and they usually hold my attention. Because I was so tired, I didn’t get very far, but I was really enjoying it. And today The Queen and the Cure was released! I was SO excited for it to download to my Kindle this morning! There are only a few authors who’s books I will pre-order, and Amy Harmon is one of them. I plan on starting this book today.

I love participating in the Bout of Books readathon and missed out on the last one because of timing and life. I plan to post daily updates on my blog as well as on Twitter and Instagram. Follow me there if you’re not already!

If you’ve never participated, I encourage you to sign up! It’s so much fun, and I love that it lasts a whole week!

{Bout of Books 17} Wrap Up

Bout of Books

 

Considering what a busy week it was, I think I did pretty well! I had no expectations, and went into the week knowing I would only read if I had the time. I’m surprised I was able to finish two books and start a new one. I think it had everything to do with my book selection. I read Dark Matter in a few days because it was SO GOOD. Such a different book than what I would normally read, and I loved it. I started The One That Got Away, and it’s also really good. I didn’t want to put it down last night. This author is quickly becoming a favorite.

No challenges for me this time, but I did participate in one of the Twitter chats. Overall not a bad week!

I hope everyone had fun with BoB!
