Bout of Books: Wrap Up

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
So I finished Warm Bodies last night before going to bed and felt very happy to have read it all in one day. The books I had decided to read this week though are at home and I’m not there so I rummaged through my boyfriends book shelf (which is basically just a lot of graphic novels that I’ve bought him over the years) and decided to read two of those, I’m happy I did!

Goals Completed?
– By the end of the week as long as I’ve finished 7 books I’ll be happy
– I hope that I wont leave a book unfinished too which’ll help keep things tidy /
Word & Breath was left unfinished, as was TAFWVG.
– I’d like to visit a minimum of 10 blogs a day
– take part in at least one of the twitter chats / I totally forgot about these
– visit every single blog on the wrap up posts like I did during 4.0 / ongoing [25 / 108]


I don’t think I did too bad considering I took a day out and had no glasses for a day too.

Bout of Books: Day 6

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Wow, as if today is the second to last day. Crazy. I had so many good intentions for today’s reading but I kind of woke up late and then ended up reading whilst watching home videos of my boyfriend and his brothers growing up, needless to say I was indeed crying with laughter throughout many of them but I still managed to get a fair amount of reading in today. My glasses have somewhat been fixed too so that helped a lot, my kindle was left charging for most of today which is why I decided to pick up Warm Bodies – holy poop! It’s amazing.

Well today whilst in college I ended up breaking my glasses so I’m soldering on without them. I’ve tried using cellotape to hold them together but they keep springing apart. Luckily I can see without them, just uh not too clearly!

Bout of Books: Day 3

After finishing Extras yesterday and that beautiful manga I was completely lost with what to pick up next, I decided it was a good idea to visit my “on hold” shelf which is basically books that are either too heavy to read in one sitting – TAFWVG – or too factual. I’m super happy to have finished the Compendium and it’s a very funny yet factual book on Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies. I wish I could have read more of TAFWVG but my eyes were getting tired with the small type face and my arms were tired with the weight of the book. I’m such a wuss.

Tuesdays is housework day for me, and when I accidentally sleep in until past mid-day I’ve not really left myself with much relaxing time. I need to stop sleeping through alarms! Anyway considering this I did manage to finish reading Extras by Scott Westerfeld and I read a manga book too – Pandora Hearts Vol 2

Bout of Books 6.0 is finally here, on the same day I go back to college which kinds of sucks cause that automatically meant I wouldn’t be able to read for most of today. Never the less I didn’t let this put me off and decided it was worth trying to finish reading the majority, if not all of Extras by Scott Westerfeld as I know how this is a fairly easy going read.

Today’s challenge is held by Shanon and Racquel from The Book Barbies!

You have made a scientific discovery (who knew you were so good at science?!) on how to bring fictional characters to life. The problem? The method still isn’t *perfect,* so you can only bring two people to life, and they must return to the land of fiction in 30 days. Who will you choose as your bestie and your love interest for that one splendid month? (Feel free to add pictures if you like, but they are not required.)

IntangibleA Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)Best Friend: This is surprisingly rather difficult, I don’t think there have been that many people who I thought “Oh my gosh, yes we need to be best friends, we need to hang out right gorram now” about, I’m too shy for this. Hmm. Okay I think it’d be Jonas from Intangible by J Meyers because he’s super awesome and friendly and a vampire and I would just love to talk to him about all his choices throughout his years as a human and a vampire.

Love Interest: Meep. This one is easier. (Don’t tell my boyfriend that) Jon Snow from A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Easily. I don’t think it helps that Kit Harrington makes me fall head over heals all the time. Heh. *blushes* Okay time to move on. Second choice is Robb of course but I can’t pick him cause of reasonsspoilers.
