Bout of Books Goals and Progress

So excited to be an expert for this readathon meaning I will be visiting as many blogs as possible. I won't be on twitter because I don't have a twitter account.

Goals:










These are the three books I'm reading right now I would like to finished Just Destiny by Theresa Rizzo for review, finish rereading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and finish Phoenix Overure by Jodi Meadows. I would like to read around 15 hours this week since I don't have school.

Day 2 May 13th
I don't know if there is such a thing as too much free time, but now that I don't have school to worry about I'm not sure what to do with myself. I spent this day at my neighbors house with her daycare kids. I'm very much struggling with Just Destiny. It has hit a slow point and doesn't seem to be coming out of it. I'm going to try to read some of Just Destiny today. I was hoping to finish it around the same time as I finish The Book Thief.

  1. Looks like good reading selections. I actually gave away my ARC of The Book Thief and have regretted it several times since. I'll be interested to hear what you think.

    Good luck with your BoB goals!

    1. I wish I could read in the car, but I get terrible headaches when I do that so in that case I would get less reading done.

    2. I always peter out at the end of bout of books. Like tonight. Instead of reading I am watching TV and blogging. I didn't read at all today.

    3. I kind of went slow and steady through this bout of books.
