Bout of Books 5.0 Wrap Up!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Wow. It's done. This summer has been full of Read-a-thons for me and I failed every single one - apart from Bout of Books :)
Bout of Books 4.0 was actually my very first Read-a-Thon and I did better than I expected on that one so I kind of felt obligated to do good this time, too - and it worked!
That's not to say I reached my goal - I never do and I didn't this time. But my goal was six books and I got to five and I guess I would totally have been able to finish six books but life got in the way and that's okay and I'm so happy I participated and so sad that it's over :)

Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1)Impulse (Impulse, #1)Perfect (Impulse, #2)Marked (House of Night, #1)Hide and Seek (The Lying Game, #4)

I participated in one Twitterchat - which was beyond fun :) And a few challenges, but I haven't listed them anywhere so I don't even know which ones they were. Apart from that I hosted my first very own challenge which was exciting!!!
And then, of course, I read books:
I fell much more in love with a series I had already been addicted to (The Lying Game),
I discovered a new author I really like and got to see a whole new perspective on YA (Ellen Hopkins),
I found the reason for all the hype and a new series to read (House of Night),
and I was a bit disappointed  (Whispers in Autumn).

Overall, this was a huge success! Also, because I'm starting school the day after tomorrow and typed ALL the reviews for the books above today :D


  1. Wow! You've been busy! I'll go through your reviews. Thanks for sharing them! :D

    1. might take me a while to post all of them, but I'm so glad you're interested in them!!!

  2. Wow. None of the above spells fail to me. Great job. Glad you had fun. I haven't participated in any read-a-thons yet.

    1. That's a bummer! You really should! I love digging through all those books along with other bloggers! If you want to try one I'd recommend you wait for the next Bout of Books, though - I think that one is by far the most fun one I've participated in :)

  3. You came close! I think you did great ;) Hope to see you in January for Bout-of-Books 6.0!
