Bout of Books Day #7/Final Recap!

Bout of Books

Overall, I enjoyed participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon! I thought some of the challenges were great! I think I managed to do 3 or 4, which surpassed my goal of 2.  I didn't quite meet my bookish goals.

I didn't get through my TBR pile, but in all fairness, I didn't initially include the book I was in the middle of at the start of the read-a-thon, which I did end up finishing. I got through about 1/3 of the Darkest Minds. I started off kinda slow, but picked up towards the end of the week. Next time I would pick smaller books (The Darkest Minds was not a good idea for a read-a-thon).  I also didn't write any reviews for any of the books I read, but I plan on working on that this weekend. I had twitter for the first time ever, and really liked reading people's tweets about the read-a-thon, their challenge answers and seeing what everyone else was reading. Next time I hope to be able to participate in one of the twitter chats.

Sunday I finished reading Sloppy Firsts and read a little bit more of The Darkest Minds. I read until midnight.

Overall I completed 5 books (one was partly started) and read a total of 1511 pages! I'll take it!

  1. The Twitter chats are so fun, but they're really crazy, because Bout of Books is so huge! None of the other chats I've participated in have come close!

  2. I'm really hopping I can get a Twitter before the next read-a-thon starts. Because I think the Twiiter chats would be so fun!
    Glad you managed to completed some of your goals :D. I also failed at some of mine.
    And it's really hard to get through TBRs especailly if you have three left and you don't feel like reading any of them so it's just like "Crap what do I do now?"
    Happy reading :D

  4. Although several of the "human death" scenes are replica handbags obviously faked (with Allan A.

Famous scenes of death from hermes outlet the media are included, such as stock footage of a napalm bombing in Vietnam, various newsreel footage, and fendi outlet wartime footage of Hitler. Also featured are the actual on-camera deaths of a variety of animals, including seals being rolex submariner replica clubbed to death and animals being killed on the slaughterhouse line.
