We have survived the first day of Bout of Books! If you want to take part but haven’t signed up yet today is the last day to do so. Check out their website to join in.
I normally have bad luck when I take part in Bout of Books, and by bad luck I mean that I have actually lost two jobs during previous attempts to take part in the readathon. Don’t worry, I didn’t loose them due to the readathon, it was unrelated with very bad timing. Safe to say I lost my reading mojo during those challenges. This time though I am having much better luck. Hopefully this year will be the end of my Bout of Books curse. (*frantically knocks on wood*)
But I have to ask this, why do people suddenly want to socialise with you when you start a readathon?
So here is my progress for Monday the 8th of May:
I managed to read 248 pages which isnt the best Bout of Books page total but still a pretty solid start if I say so myself.
I am currently 208 pages into Rosemary’s Baby, which is a much better book than I expected. I will talk about it more during my picks for Dark Reads of the Month.
And I read 40 pages of Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy. This probably wasnt the best choice for a readathon book because I read Rick Riordan books with my partner and he isn’t the fastest reader in the world so I intentionally slow myself down so I don’t race too far ahead. It is a lot of fun reading a book together but it stops me flying through it.
Reading Plans for Today
- Finish Rosemary’s Baby
- Read at least 50 pages of Dark Prophecy during my lunch break
- Start Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum or Salem’s Lot by Stephen King.
