Bout of Books 8.0 - The Wrap Up

Bout of Books

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.

Earlier today I got back from a weekend in Amsterdam where I met up with a bunch of awesome book bloggers, and remembered that Bout of Books was still going on!  And I'm happy to say, I managed to get another book read today too, huzzah!

Considering everything that was going on this week, I didn't do nearly as badly as I thought I would.  Three books finished and another two underway!

Books Finished
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes (346 pages)
Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes (416 pages)
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1) by Leigh Bardugo (356 pages)

Books In Progress
The Trouble with Flirting by Claire LaZebnik (91 pages)
World War Z by Max Brooks (27 pages)

Total pages read 1236.  Yay me!
