Bout of Books Day: 4 Challenge/Reading Update


 Bout of Books 13

For more information about the read-a-thon, check out my introductory post.

DAY 4 UPDATE

I read to pg.255/388 of The Wrath and the Dawn today.

Completed books: 4

Pages read: 1412

Books left: 3

I’m feeling pretty good so far, hoping to at least get to The Painted Girls by Saturday since I need to have it read by Tuesday for school.

And now for the challenge…

Cover Colour Challenge

I chose to do light blue and white. This was a lot harder than I had thought it would be as a lot of my book’s spines do not match their covers and so finding a match proved to be  more difficult than it needed.

About a book a day ain’t bad, tomorrow it’s going things are going to start to slow down; I’ve got loads of summatives to get done by next Tuesday.

And now for the challenge…

From Modern to Classic

A book, published after 2005, that I believe in 100 years will become a classic is…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

Goodreads

My Review

Why?

1.It’s so beautifully written that it breaks your heart.

2.It is relateable and inspiring to many people. It’s already based a couple decades ago and it still is relevant, so in about 100 years it most will likely still be.

3. (Bonus point) I loved it and I would read it a thousand more times if I could.

Also, Fangirl by Rowell should be a classic as well. Fangirl explains fan fiction so well that people from the future will be able to understand it.

Now for the challenge…

Bout of Books 13 Day: 2 Challenge/Reading Update


 Bout of Books 13

For more information about the read-a-thon, check out my introductory post.

Day 1 update

I successfully finished Seraphina by Rachel Hartman as well as read the entirety of The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows.

Completed books: 2

Pages read: 520

Books left: 5

So far things are looking good. And now for the challenge hosted by LuLo Fangirl

Character Face-off

Celaena Sardothien VS Feyre

Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

Who: Ordinary human who falls in love with a beast, also huntress/painter

Pros: Able to see the good in everyone, bow and arrow (need I say more), cares for her family more then they do for her, very selfless

Cons: Can be naive, illiterate (I’m sorry but I had to)

Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass)

Who: Kick-ass assassin/queen

Pros: Loves books, can kill anyone/thing, magical

Cons: Little headstrong, can hold quite a grudge

And the winner is…

Celaena. The fact that she has done so much might be the reason she has one. Who knows, maybe after more ACOTAR novels, Feyre might win. Celaena has faced far more pain than Feyre and has done more to overcome it. As well, I do enjoy books more over paintings.

If you could choose between the two, who would your favourite be?

Today’s Challenge: Bookish Survey

Hosted by Writing My Own Fairy Tale

1. How do you organize your shelves?

I mainly organize my shelves by author last name and genre. I’ve got a favourite’s shelf and a Harry Potter shelf as well. Also, I’ve got an entire section devoted to my TBR. Then there are all of my special edition classics in their own area.

2. What is one of your favorite book that’s not in one of your favorite genres?

Fantasy by far. It’s always been my favourite

3. What is the last 5 star book you read?

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon?

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl as everybody just raves about it.

5. What book do you recommend the most?

This is such a tough question, there are so many books I would recommend, but I’ll pick my favourite fantasy series and say Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas.

Tomorrow I will be posting an update on my progress for today, so look forward to that.
