Bout of Books 20: Wrap Up

 Bout of Books 20
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

So Bout of Books is over, and it went pretty well. I read quite a bit and finished a few books, but sadly life got in the way a few days so I wasn't able to read or accomplish as much as I had hoped.

-Finish Serpentine by Cindy Pon (#TheReadingQuest)  
-Finish Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (#TheReadingQuest)  
-Finish Uninvited by Sophie Jordan (Leftover from #Unhaulathon    
-Read Want by Cindy Pon (#TheReadingQuest)
-Read The Young Elites by Marie Lu  
-Complete 3 daily challenges
-Finish the Mage Quest for #TheReadingQuest
-Decide and start books for #RainbowReadathon17 and #WWReadathon

I accomplished 4 of my goals (finish Serpentine and Uninvited and read The Young Elites). I started Want, but I'm getting through it slowly. I'm having trouble getting into it, so I hope that changes soon! I also decided and started my books for #RainbowReadathon17 and #WWReadathon, so I started Slasher Girls and Monster Boys. I'm not someone who loves scary things, so some of these stories have really creeped me out!

In total, I read 829 pages and finished 3 books. I also started 2 others. I haven't finished my Mages Quest yet, but I'm going to make sure I finish it today. I didn't complete 3 challenges, but those are always something I have trouble with. However, I did participate in a chat, and that's something I never do! I can only hope I can get this much done for the next Bout of Books!

How did Bout of Books go for you?
