{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. 😀

{Bout of Books 19} Day Two

 

 

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!

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: Wrap Up

 

#Readathon Update

I had a blast, and I hope everyone who participated did, too.  Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who works so hard to make this happen. I even won a door prize, which was such an awesome surprise!

time

Between my books and reading with Sunnie, I managed around 12 hours off and on. I took a break when we went to visit friends for a few hours in the evening. When I got home, I could only manage to stay up for an hour, but then I got up early Sunday morning to get in some more reading. Overall I read a lot more than I ever anticipated! Just finishing a book is winning for me. I had fun following everyone’s posts on Intagram and Twitter, too.

food

PIZZA AND WINE. So, it was awesome.

adulting

I really did very minimal adulting, and had to make up for it on Sunday. But that’s okay! It was worth it.

books

I finished Fractured by Catherine McKenzie and started Always by Sarah Jio. Sunnie read 4 of the books in her stack! I took her to the bookstore yesterday and let her pick out a new book as her Readathon reward. 😉

 

Sign me up for the next one!
