Bout of Books have officially started. I’m typing this on Sunday night since Mondays are always busy with meetings, homeschooling, and errands. Don’t worry, I’m taking my reads to the beach with me Monday afternoon since summer has pretty much hit Southern California. (I’m not bragging. I actually wish it was winter here.)
I’m starting the read-a-thon off with two books that aren’t on my original list: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton and For Today I Am a Boy by Kim Fu. I also plan on using this post to update my progress as I go.
Enjoy your Monday!
What are you looking forward to reading/doing this week?
Monday was fantastic! I started and finished The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. It was filled with beautiful writing and though I didn’t really get attached to any of the characters, it was still a nice book to read.
- Books finished: 1
- Pages read: 320
Now I just need to figure out what to read today (Tuesday). Any suggestions?
Tuesday was a total reading disaster. I couldn’t figure out what to read so I didn’t do any reading. Plus, this heat was so bad that all I wanted to do was sleep yesterday. Ugh. Today (Wednesday) it’s suppose to be 98 degrees. I can’t hibernate since I have a ton of things to do. Today’s book will either be There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff (a reread) or The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld.
Day 3 Mini-Challenge
Today’s mini-challenge is from My Overstuffed Books. B.o.B. participates are to pair a book with something.
My pairing is The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton and probably French bread. In the book, the main character’s grandmother owns the bakery in their small town and believes bread helps to heal almost anything. I love that idea.
