Bout of Books 13.0 Wrap-Up

Halo people! It's my very very late Bout of Books 13.0 Readathon wrap up! I know, I know. Why are you so late Alma? Well, I had a major project that was due a few days ago, and I procastinated up until today, where I said that I won't ever do it if I don't post it today what with finals, coming up, so here I am :D

I finished the 2 books that I had previously started and read 3 additional books, which I think is a success.

The Unbound: pg. 295-end (62 pgs.)
The Outsider: pg. 131-end (49 pgs.)
Leave the Window Open: I have no idea how to count this, but I read it :D
Miss Mayhem (273 pgs.)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown (419 pgs.)
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac (288 pgs.)

Grand Total: 1091 pgs.

YEAH! So, I more than doubled my goal of reading 500 pages while still not reading at all during the last day. Don't know how I did that, but I am pretty proud of myself :) This post is going to be scheduled to go up at 3:00 PM, because I'm trying to see if the scheduling thing actually works, so I'm off to write posts for when I'm going to be gone for the next half an hour or so. Bye!

Bout of Books 13: Day 4 Update

Hi guys! It's day 4 of the Bout of Books 13.0 readathon and I'm on a reading spree :D So let me tell you the story. When I first heard about this readathon, I wasn't sure I would be able to do it, because I hadn't been reading a lot lately. Right now, I am happy to tell you that it was not a problem :)
I finished another book- which is more than I can say last week, and both the books are so fast paced it's great. Anyways, here's my stats as of today:

Pages read:
Day 1-2: 169
The Unbound: pg. 295-357 (62)
The Outsider: pg. 131-180 (49)
Leave the Window Open (the mini short story that Victoria Schwab posted on her blog): how would you even count this?
Miss Mayhem: pg. 0-42 (42)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown: pg. 0-16 (16)

Day 3-4: 318
Miss Mayhem: pg. 43-273 (220)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown: pg. 17-115 (98)

Total so far: 487 (I'll definitely pass my 500 pgs goal :D)

I feel weirdly giddy about this whole thing. I don't know why. Maybe I'm just weird (of course, what am I saying? of course I'm weird). Well. Thanks for reading my update and I hope you're doing great too :D

Bout of Books 13: Day 1- 2 Update

Bout of BooksHi guys! This is yesterday's update that was supposed to be posted yesterday night, but I forgot, so here you go now. So sorry!

Today's day 2 of the Bout of Books 13 readathon -I survived :) I'm going to do updates for every two days of the readathon so that they won't be too short. So. I finished two books that I started before the readathon, started a book and read a semi-novela type thing. Here's what I mean:

Pages read:
The Unbound: pg. 295-357 (62)
The Outsider: pg. 131-180 (49)
Leave the Window Open (the mini short story that Victoria Schwab posted on her blog): how would you even count this?
Miss Mayhem: pg. 0-42 (42)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown: pg. 0-16 (16)

Total: 169

Yay! I'm pretty proud of myself for reading over 100 pages, considering all the school stuff happening. I don't want to set a strict goal for myself for how many pages I read, but the tentative goal is at least 500. I know, not a lot, but I don't want to take away the fun from the readathon, so I'm sticking to it :D

How are you doing? How many pages have you read? Tell me in the comments below :)

Bout of Books 13 TBR

Bout of BooksHi guys! Like I promised, I'm going to do my TBR for the Bout of Books 13.0 Readathon that starts tomorrow. I have a lot going on at school since finals are nearing, so the last of the tests, projects, and presentations are all due soon. Anyways, that being said, I'm planning to read these three books:

Unbound by Victoria Schwab (half-way)
Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
The Assassin's Blade (half-way through re-reading)

Four books in seven days. Pretty ambitious, but we'll see how well I do it. I haven't done readathons in so long, and I haven't been reading much lately, so let's hope this'll help. If you're participating, what books are you planning to read next week?

Tuesday, May 5, 2015


Hi guys! This is just a quick update about what's going to happen in the next few weeks. The first week of June, I'll have my finals, followed by my departure back to Indonesia for a visit. I'll be staying for about five weeks, so I'll be back on the second week of July. During that time, it's unlikely that I'll be able to post on my blog, so I'm planning to pre-write some posts and schedule them (if I figure out how). Anyways, I just wanted to get that out of the way. 

Do any of you have recommendations on what the posts should be about? What I have planned was to do a WoW, one on my favorite quotes, one about covers, and I haven't figured out the other two yet. They're not set in stone -just a loose plan. Oh, I'm also planning to start doing Top Ten Tuesdays, so look forward to that :D 

Bout of Books 13 Intro

Bout of Books
Hi guys! I want to let you guys know that I'm planning to participate in the Bout of Books 13 Readathon. It seems fun, and I haven't really done much readathons lately. 

Here's the blurb from the Bout of Books blog: "The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog."

I'll be posting my TBR when the challenges are announced and maybe I'll do some updates too. We'll see. If any of you are participating too, feel free to comment your intro post, and I'll check it out :)
