  2. Take a photo, make a graphic or even a list and share your word on your blog, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads.
  3. Submit a link to your post in the linky below! You’ll get an extra FIVE entries in the Rafflecopter international giveaway for an eBook of your choice (Amazon or B&N, up to $10 USD) for participating in this challenge.

Bout of Books/ August 22nd Daily Challenge

I am actually completing a challenge and here it is. I hope you enjoy it.

You must link four books by using the last word of the previous title to the first word of the next one. To start, pick a book (ANY book; your choice!) and start linking! A, An, and The don’t count, so if your book starts with one of those, just use the next word. To make this challenge tougher, you can decide to only use books you’ve read within the last twelve months – but that’s not a requirement. 

This challenge is being hosted by Christian Bookshelf Reviews .

Here is my answer:

White Wedding by Milly Johnson

Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella

(The) Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Circus of the Damned by Laurell K. Hamilton

I have to admit that this was hard just when I thought I had it I realized I didn’t… this was alot of fun,

Thanks for this awesome fun challenge.

I didn’t read as much as the previous days because I really wanted to make sure I had reviews written. I read 10 books so that is alot of reviews. Its nice to have 10 reviews written and it will be nice to have them stock piled for when I need them.

The first daily challenge I am taking part in is hosted by LuLo FanGirl

Make a playlist centered around at least ONE of the books you plan on reading during the read-a-thon. Because this is a very simple challenge, you need to have at LEAST 5 songs on your playlist. Be as specific or as vague in your selections as you wish, but have FUN with it!

The Book I am reading is Way To Go by Tom Ryan.

One of the things mentioned in the book so far has been the arrival of a new girl from NYC and she comes with a bag of mixed cassettes and it got me thinking about the time my and my friends use to make mix cassettes so here is my list:

  1. Shattered Dreams by Johnny Hates Jazz
  2. Maneaster by Hall & Oates
  3. Fast Cars by Tracey Chapman
  4. Send Me an Angel by Real Life
  5. The Boys of Summer by Don Healy

I also took part in The Book Monsters Bout of Books Scavenger Hunt and if you want to see what I posted please check out my instagram.

Bout of Books 11.0 About to Start

Bout of Books

Time Devoted to Reading

Welcome to  the Bout of Books 11.0 Read-a-Thon. The fun will begin tomorrow. Are you excited?
I am planning on reading as much as I can this week. The only plans for the week are tomorrow Michael has a dentist appointment, Tuesday he has a library activity so I know I will be able to get some reading done then and then Sunday we are going out of town for the day to go to a picnic so I will cram as much reading as I can in then. So hopefully the rest of the week I will be able to get a good chuck of books off my tbr list.

 My Goals

  • To make a dent in my tbr pile
  • To participate in some twitter chats (there is three scheduled)
  • To participate in the daily challenges (there is ten total)
  • To update daily
  • To comment on ten new blogs daily (I think I am going to add the links of the blogs I visit and then add them to the daily updates post)
  • To comment on any comments that are posted on my blog daily

 

Books to Read

  • If you CLICK ON THIS TEXT it will take you to my post about my goals for the week. Last week when I was at the library I managed to pick up another seven mangas/graphic novels that I plan on adding into the piles as well. I know its probably too many books but I figure if I need a little break I have those to read as well.
