I was supposed to be taking part in #BoutofBooks18 this week, and despite the week not being over yet, I’m afraid to say I’ve failed myself. I realise this read-a-thon is a no pressure thing, but I rather think I signed up prematurely. As in, I thought I could do it, but I can’t.
I didn’t make a TBR for it, because I didn’t want to tie myself down to anything. However, I had been classing my reread of Harry Potter as part of my TBR. Kind of. I’d even been listening to some audio books, but really it was all rather casual. So casual I wasn’t actually doing the read-a-thon. lol.
I’ve also got back into binge watching my rewatch of Supernatural, so naturally that took over my life. It also cut into my reading, and my writing. So basically, I can call this read-a-thon a fail and I’ll try better next time.
I thought I’d let you all know, anyway. 🙂
Hello everyone. So this week 22nd to 28th August I’m participating in the #boutofbooks 17 readathon challenge. It’s now half way and I just wanted to let you know my progress so far.
On Monday/Tuesday I read:
12 chapter sampler of The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead. That is 148pages.
On Tuesday (once I finished the previous, obv) and Wednesday:
I began The Crown by Kiera Cass.
113 pages read over those days.
So that’s it for now. It’s currently Thursday, but the day isn’t over so I’ll update you on my final tally come Monday.
I hope you’re enjoying your week. And if you’re doing this readathon also, let me know how it’s going for you! XD
Yooooo so I wasn’t intending on doing this, but since I’m in a reading slump, rereading stuff might be a good idea. (click image to go to original post announcement)
It starts tomorrow. Anyone else in?
Here’s the schedule for challenges, etc.
It’s not for a while yet, but I plan on taking part in #BoutOfBooks17 and I plan on KICKING ASS!
What is #Boutofbooks17 you ask? Well…
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
As you probably are aware, I’ve been in a horrid reading slump since my fantastic June reading frenzy. Pretty sure I burned myself out. Since then I’ve not managed to finish anything in July or even this first week of August. Oh yeah, I’ve read a few chapters of different books, and I’ve been rereading stuff, but I’ve yet to finish ANYTHING. It is really getting me down, especially since I’ve bought so many new books in the past few weeks, and I just can’t get the enthusiasm to read, either.
I’ve not participated in any readathons since June, and I am really hoping this one will get me out of this slump and back in the saddle, so to speak. 🙂
If you’re planning on taking part, please let me know by commenting in the box below.
Also if you haven’t already seen, I uploaded 2 new book haul videos, so this will give you an idea of what I might be reading. 😛 Though nearer the time I’ll post what I will ACTUALLY be reading, HAHA.
