Bout of Books 11.0 Update (Day THREE)

 
Whoo! Who else is excited about Day Three of the Bout Of Books Read a thon? I know I am. I managed a trip to the library today and I've got four more books ready to read. I know I'm not going to finish all of them during the Read a thon but I am excited to read them anyway.


Total Pages Read: 742
Pages Read Today: 323
Total Books Read: 2
Currently Reading: Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards
Other Comments: Wow, was this book a whirlwind of a ride! I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as Jellicoe Road... it didn't get me invested and it was lighter than Jellicoe Road, but it was still really good. It was very mysterious, and kept me hooked and turning pages until the very end. Obviously I enjoyed it a lot, since I flew through it in only one day! The author's fast paced writing style also helped with that though, methinks.

There was only one challenge today. It was hosted by Book Reviews From A Christian Gal The challenge was to create a sentence using the first two words of books. Since I've only read one book so far it has the first two words from that book as well as a few other favorites.
 
My father, Han Alister, was there after a wind howled.
 
Books, in order
"Jellicoe Road" by Melina Marchetta
"The Demon King" by Cinda Williams Chima
"Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell
"Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas
"Eragon" by Christopher Paolini
 
The first two words of Fangirl were switched up because it has been clarified that that is allowed! Phew!
 
Happy reading!

See you with another update tomorrow.

  2. Haha (: ~ You used Eragon! I was going to use wind howled but couldn't fit in my sentence. Very good sentence! Way more coherent than mine :P
    Six Months Later must have been really good since you blew past it in one day. I'll have to look it up later. Have a great reading day today!
