BOUT OF BOOKS: Goal Post!

I sincerely hope you’re all joining in the fun!  Hosted by the FABULOUS Amanda and Kelly, 
Bout of Books always promises a good time!

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

Bout of Books: Day 3 Update!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

UPDATES

Monday was a wash for me, and can be seen on my initial post.  Tuesday was also, an “eh” day since I work a lot on Tuesday!  I read 70 pages (ish) Tuesday and Wednesday finally got to read a bit after work.  Here’s what I read:


Wednesday (Day Three)-

Number of books I’ve read today: 1
Total number of books I’ve read: 1
Books: Confessions of an Angry Girl; Louise Rozzett
Pages I Read: 230 (read the rest Tuesday)

Let me just say first, I recieved this book from NetGalley, for review on behalf of HarlequinTEEN.  I will be reviewing it, probably within the next few days.  But wow, I really enjoyed this!  I gave it 4 stars of Goodreads.  This book is being released August 31st, 2012 and I highly recommend you pick it up!  Or (if you have an eReader) pick up the sample and check it out! I think a lot of book bloggers will like this book as it takes us back to the high school days of drama and finding out where you belong.  

Today is obviously Day Four.. and I am NOT sure what to start!  Help! Of the books I said I’d read.. what is left is..




Which should I start?  
Who’s read what?





Bout of Books – The CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGE!

Well well, my fellow Bout of Book-ers! You have landed at THE CONTEMPORARY CHALLENGE!
Are you ready? I think you are!  Let’s do this…



For this challenge, I will ask you several questions:

  • Choose your favorite contemporary of 2012 (thus far)
  • Choose your favorite contemporary COVER of 2012 (thus far)
  • and explain your biggest *SURPRISE* contemporary book of this year..
  • (SURPRISE contemporary means: the book you may have not expected to love, but did)

Here’s my responses:
Favorite Contemporary thus far is: Pushing the Limits By Katie McGarry
My favorite cover is My Life Next Door (seen left) by Huntley Fitzpatrick
and my SURPRISE contemporary would have to be     Something Like Normal by Trish Doller.  I didn’t think I would like the male persepctive, but in FACT,  I adored it!  I’d love to read more from a male point of view!

Now: Answer in the comments below with all your responses!  This challenge is only TODAY so you will definitely wanna get started! 
The prize will be a copy of CATCHING JORDAN by Mirana Keneally

and a copy of  THE DISENCHANTMENTS by Nina LaCour
Have fun!
