Bout Of Books 5.0 Goal Post

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Wow, I feel like my first Read-a-Thon, Bout of Books 4.0, has only been yesterday :) Back then I had a blast reading as much as possible and I still think the hosts did a fabulous job organising everything!!! That's why of COURSe I had to participate again, and here I am jumping from one Read-a-Thon to the next :)

TIME DEVOTED TO READING

I will be reading as much as possible but at least 1,5 hous every day next week. I'm on a shopping spree all Monday but I hop to read at least 200 pages every other day of the Read-a-Thon. 

MY GOALS

-to read at least six books (never going to happen)
-to check twitter at least six times a day (seriously, I'm never on twitter)
-to participate i at least one twitter chat even if I have to stay up all night
-trying to pull an all nighter (wanted to do this last time, but school kind of gor in the way ;))

BOOKS TO READ

Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1)Impulse (Impulse, #1)Perfect (Impulse, #2)
Marked (House of Night, #1)Crossed (Matched, #2)

UPDATES


Monday
Number of books I've read today: 1
Total number of books I've read:1

Books:
Hide and Seek (The Lying Game, #4)

My Thoughts:
Okay, I started with a book that's not even on my goal list, but it didn't replace a review book so that doesn't really matter and also - I got through it in one day :)


Tuesday
Number of books I've read today: 1
Total number of books I've read:2

Books:
Impulse (Impulse, #1)

My Thoughts:

You guys were right - Ellen Hopkins is a genius! Impulse was pretty disturbing, though, for a softie like me and I just started Perfect although I know I'd need something very funny and very light...we'll see how it goes, though :)


Wednesday
Number of books I've read today: 47 pages 
Total number of books I've read:2

Books:
Perfect (Impulse, #2)

Thoughts:
I saw this one coming so I'm not really disappointed. I'm a rather active person, so sitting in a chair reading all Monday and Tuesday was a bit too much - I decided to run some errands, go for a loong run and clean my room - now I'm exhausted enough to keep reading, though :)


Thursday
Number of books I've read today: 1
Total number of books I've read: 3

Books:
Perfect (Impulse, #2)

My Thoughts:
Yay! I'm kind of back on track, I guess - wasn't hard, though - the book was amazing!


Friday
Number of books I've read today: 1/2
Total number of books I've read: 3 1/2

Books:
Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1)

My Thoughts:
The book is pretty good so far - and I could've finished it if I wouldn't always let myself get distracted!
You might have noticed that I deleted Ruby from my goal list - that's because I added Hide and Seek and my goal was six books and I'm sure I won't get to seven :) Anyway, I might even reach my goal this time :D


Saturday
Number of books I've read today: 1/2 plus 40 pages
Total number of books I've read: 4 books, 40 pages :)

Books:
Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1)Marked (House of Night, #1)

My Thoughts: 
I fell asleep!!! I could use a very bad cuss word now, but I won't. Anyway: this was sooo annoying! I was planning on staying up all night to read House of Night in one setting. Because, hello?? It's called House of NIGHT and it's about vampires - sorry, vampyres - it would hae worked out perfectly! Well, it didn't. I struggled a bit with Whispers in Autumn - it got a bit boring at the end, but Marked is definitely entertaining and perfect for a Read-a-Thon! How are you guys doing?

    1. Yes, I want to read Crossed to - Reached is supposed to come out in november :) Then again, I might switch up some of these books (actually, I already have)...

  2. You can TOTALLY read six books in a week!! I'm sure you'll be able to do it. =) I have the opposite problem with Twitter, I'm always on it! So during Bout of Books, I'll be staying away from it, and only logging on to update my progress (which probably isn't going to happen, but still!) Good luck, and I'm looking forward to your updates! =)

    1. Yup, I have to start reading that series immediately! But it's kind of intimidating, because I feel like there are more books pretty much every month :)

    1. The series is pretty good - creepy and girly and all! Shepard never fails to surprise me! I didn't love the show, though, so I stopped watching it!
