Bout of Books Update!

This is the page where I will update my Bout of Books progress throughout the week.

Goals for the week:
read at least 5 books 
read for at least three hours every day (180 minutes) 
participate in at least one Twitter chat 
participate in at least two mini challenges 


Books Read: 1
Pages Read: 320
Minutes Read: 225 (3 hours and 15 minutes)
Notes: Finished History is all you left me by Adam Silvera. Believe it or not,  I could have read more today, but I had a horrible migraine and it was one of those migraines that would not allow me to read very much. That doesn't happen very often. 

Books Read: 1.35
Total Books Read: 2
Pages Read: 444
Minutes Read: 250 (4 hours 10 minutes)
Notes: Read The Radius Of Us, which was an incredible book. Started reading For The Most Beautiful: A Novel of the Women of Troy. It's got me hooked so far.

Books Read: 1
Total Books Read: 3
Pages Read: 482
Minutes Read: 190 (3 hours 10 minutes)
Notes: Finished Beautiful: A Novel of the Women of Troy. That one was basically a retelling of Homer's Illiad and it was so incredibly good. Started The Girl From Everywhere. It was good, but the middle is dragging too much. Also did some reading of an unpublished manuscript I am getting paid to critique. The challenge today was to post about a book you would like to see made into a movie.
Books Read: 2
Total Books Read: 5
Pages Read: 480
Minutes Read: 285 (4 hours 45 minutes)
Notes: Happy with all the reading I got done today. Finished The Girl From Everywhere. Sorry, but I was not in love with that book. I was bored the whole time. Also finished an unpublished manuscript for critique.

  1. Wow, for having a migraine headache, you read a lot!! I'm usually down and out if I have a migraine and don't get much of anything accomplished.

    Good luck with reaching your reading goals for BOB 18. You're off to an awesome start.

    I listened to an audiobook for 4 hours and 45 minutes and am 80% into the book. Happy reading!

  2. So sorry about the migraine. I hate having those! But great job on what you were able to accomplish through the pain!

  3. Ouch! Migraines are never fun but I'm impressed you managed to finish a book despite it. Great progress so far, I'm sure you'll have no problem knocking out your goals :)

  4. So sorry you had a migraine! Those are never fun - but you still got some impressive reading done yesterday.

  5. I have been hearing a TON about Adam Silvera lately. Looking forward to getting my hands on one of his books in 2017! Hoping your migraine subsided today!
