Bout of Books 11.0 - Day 7 Update!

Bout of Books

Bout of Books has sadly come to an end! I hope you guys all had a fantastic time during the readathon - I know I did! I'm really proud of myself! Here are the goals and the TBR pile I previously posted:

   My Goals: 

  1. Read 3 books
  2. Read at least 500 pages
  3. Comment on at least five different "update" posts
  4. Participate in one or more of the challenges

      TBR Pile:

  1. Geek Girl - Holly Smale
  2. Lullaby - Amanda Hocking 
  3. The Maze Runner - James Dashner
  4. Paper Towns - John Green
I read 4 books (go me!), I read 1,278 pages, I visited five or more update posts most days and I participated in one challenge, that being The Book Scavenger Hunt! I'm really proud of that as I wasn't expecting to read so many pages with all the schoolwork I have.

I deviated slightly from my TBR pile. I read Geek Girl and Lullaby, but then I also read Geek Girl: Model Misfit and Goth Girl by Chris Riddell! I was hoping to read The Maze Runner and Paper Towns but unfortunately I didn't get around to them! I absolutely LOVED the Geek Girl books and I couldn't put them down - urgently need the third one! Lullaby and Goth Girl were both alright...I was expecting them to be better, though.

Overall, I'm really proud with the amount I read! It's not much compared to others, but for me I completed and went above my goal, so yay! I'm really looking forward to the next Bout of Books, as they're always so much fun to participate in! :)
