Bout of Books 7.0 Day 3 :)

Bout of Books
Could it really be the end of Day 3 already? This week is going by so quickly. Alas, I did not get as much reading done today as I would have liked between my dental appointment, working until 8:00 and now, at this point I am super tired so I do not think I will make it to midnight like I have the last two nights but we will see.

My Goals for the Week:
  • Finish 3 books and hoping for more
  • Write reviews for titles finished within 2 days
  • Visit at least 10 different bloggers each day

Today's Progress:

  • Started Georgetown Academy Book Four!! Loving it already--perfect for my lunch break only I did not want to put it down and go back to work. ;-)
  • Read 50ish pages of Star Cursed--it is so good but I was not in the right frame of mind to read it during my lunch break today at work. I hope to get it finished up by the end of the week. 

Reviews and Other Special Posts this Week:


Cumulative Progress:

Number of books I've read today: 1 full, 1/2 of another plus a full CD (about 4 chapters or so) of listening
Total number of books I've read: 1 1/2

  • Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland--finished!
  • Listened to 1 full CD (just over an hour total time) of The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman--this is for a review for publication so I will not be posting a review of it here for quite some time.
  • Working on Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer as I just had an inkling to read it again.
Number of books I've read today: 1/2 of one book plus two CDs of an audiobook
Total number of books I've read: 3 books!

Number of books I've read today: about 50 pages of one and 20 of another
Total number of books I've read: 3 books! plus 70 pages
I also go to participate in the Twitter Chat! I am so happy that I was able to do this--I did not think it would work out this week to do one. :)

  1. You are doing so well so far! Enjoying the books? Star Crossed and Nantucket Blue look so good. I haven't heard of Georgetown Academy. Thanks for stopping by my blog today :D

    1. Thank you Erica! I am enjoying the books. I am in the mood for certain type of books and while I like Star Cursed thus far, I am not quite in the right mood to read it yet. But I will get it finished. :) If you like It-Girl novels, politics, romance or dram--they are FANTASTIC! The authors have done an amazing job with them. Enter the giveaway--who knows, maybe you will get lucky to win the GTA books! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!

  2. You are doing really well! Congrats!

  3. Ooh! Star Cursed! I'm really excited about that one! I can see though that you'd have to be in the right frame of mind to read it. I LOVED the first book, but I can see how a mood would affect it! Good luck with the rest of the day today!

    1. It is so good but I have been reading more at night after work when I am tired or on lunch break so not the right moments. :) Hopefully this weekend or tomorrow evening possibly. It has been a hectic week for me. Happy Reading!

  4. The Twitter chat was so much fun :)

    1. :) They are a lot of fun to do. My head was spinning trying to keep up with it. Happy Reading!


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment! I read them all and respond to them as soon as I can.
