Bout of Books 23 | Sign-up and Progress

Sorry I disappeared for longer than planned, but I will be back with reviews soon. I’ve been having a bit of a reading slump for the past couple of months, but hopefully this Bout of Books will kick me back into gear. Thank you to everyone who has stayed with me. 💕💕

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

So I only have one goal this week, and that is to finish reading HERO AT THE FALL by Alwyn Hamilton. I’m over a hundred pages in and really enjoying the story so far, but for some reason it’s just not translating into actually sitting down and reading. 🤷‍♀️

Wrap Up!

My only goal for this Bout of Books was to finish reading Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton and I failed. That being said I did manage to read 125 pages or for 40m 48s which I will admit isn’t a lot, but I’m very happy with this as it is more than I have managed to read for weeks. So I’m very pleased with Bout of Books 23, and I’m hoping to carry the momentum forward. If you took part, then I hope you had  a good Bout of Books too.
