Bout of Books Wrap Up

This Bout of Books was actually really great for me. My goals were to read 700 pages, read 2-3 books, and read for at least 12 hours. This was my reading pile when I started Bout of Books Of Course it changed as the week went on. 

I read a total of 892 pages in 19 hours and 27 minutes in 7 days. That is an average of 127 pages per day and 1 hour and 46 minutes per day.  I'm really proud of this total. Last Bout of Books I read less pages in more hours, which was different because of the font size of the books I was ready and how close I had to pay attention to read them. This time I think I started out with some books that were quicker reads, but still easily amazing. This Bout of Books took place during my last week of winter break. I spent the mornings reading and the afternoons over at my neighbor's house to help out with the daycare kids. Then when I came home around 6 I would eat and spend the rest of the night reading. Now that I'm back at college I don't have the luxury to read as much, but my goal this semester is to keep up with homework so I have more time to read. 

Books Finished:
My goals compared to what I actually read is pretty good. I finished Zel and Pivot Point as planned. Then my interlibrary loan for Incarnate came in and I read that so my sister could have the book and read it. All of these were 5 stars novel and I'm so excited to share my love of the novels with you guys. I would suggest moving all these books up on your TBR list. 

Book Started:
I just started Allegiant and well it is amazing. 



  1. You did great and I am glad all your books were good! I hope you have a good week back at school!

    1. It has been a pretty good week Sarah. I have had a sore throat all week, but it is finally better. I'm trying to go much more stress free this semester. A great way to relieve stress is reading so I'm definitely trying to read more while I'm at college. It isn't easy, but it is doable. I will have a couple posts up about college soon.
