So this is my final post for Bout of Books 7.0, and honestly I’m kinda sad that it is all over. I had a great time, and it really helped me to get back on track with my reviews and escape my “reading-slump-of-doom” which I couldn’t seem to outrun for long.
I guess you want to know how it went, if you haven’t been keeping up to date with my updates post. I was waaaay too lazy to do a post a day – it would eat into my reading time!
Time Devoted to Reading ended up being quite a lot. I’m not sure of the exact hours, I didn’t keep track, but I think I managed to read for about 6 hours a day. I’m very pleased with this because I was also the only one cooking that week as Mum has an essay due asap, and I had to do some cleaning around the house and that so there wasn’t too much to do on Sunday when the family came over.
My Goals were admittedly easy, but I completed reading 4 books by Thursday and in fact I ended up reading 6 books this week which I am super proud of. I would have loved to have read seven, but Sunday was a lost cause reading wise. I also aimed to take part in one Twitter Chat and I ended up taking part in two of the three Twitter Chats – the first and the last, unfortunately the second one took place at 2am and I needed to sleep!
The Books I Read are as follows:
With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent
Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Debutantes by Cora Harrison
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
Because It Is My Blood by Gabrielle Zevin
A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole
Will I take part in another Bout of Books? Yes. It was soooo much fun! I am seriously contemplating taking part in Bout of Books 8.0 in August, but we’ll see how things are closer to the time.
