Bout of Books 9.0 - The Updates

After looking at that enormous post yesterday, I eventually decided to do ONE update post for all of the days...so that the non-book-tube-a-thoners don't get dizzy from the workload of Updates!

Books: Enders by Lissa Price, (and finished listening to The Beautiful and the Cursed, but had only 1,5 hours left)
Notes: Good day! Managed to finish my first book, visited way more than 10 new blogs, participated in the Twitter Chat and had the reading-time of my life :)

Books: Wild Cards by Simone Elkeless
Notes: I had to stop before the ending because it was getting too late and I was seriously sleep deprived that day, BUT I finished the last 30 pages this morning ;)

Books: And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
Notes: This seems to be a theme here. I read until it is so late I can't keep my eyes open, then finish the book first thing the next morning! Also: And We Stay was not on my original goal post...but I'm not so sure about that one anymore anyway...I might depart from those books again...
I again participated in both challenges and visited even more than the 10 blogs I set out to visit! I did not join the Twitter Chat, because that would've been 2AM for me and that was just not going to happen.

Books: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Notes: I was 30 pages into An Abundance of Katherines when I decided I wouldn't continue that day. I will finish the book, but right now, I just.cannot. handle it. I like John Green's humour, but just not - right now. Out of the Easy, however, lurred me in slowly, but entirely. I am IN LOVE! I didn't finish it yesterday, but that's okay. I'm still pretty good ahead of my goal :)

Books: Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Notes: I read the majority of this while at the gym and then finished it at home. I do see myself starting to slack, though. As my winter break comes to an end, it gets harder and harder not to sacrifice reading time for homework...

Books: Paper Towns by John Green
Notes: Missed the Twitter Chat and got only a really small amount of reading done. I should be sad. I'm not. I really had to work for Uni today and I will have to tomorrow. So if I finish Paper Towns - the fifth book! - and reach my goal (!!!) of five books, that would make me very happy and be more than enough for now!
