Bout of Books RaT is here! 1st Challenge!

Bout of Books

I even got up early! How is that for dedication?! (It's actually great, since I usually am up until 2 or 3 and sleep until 10 or 11, and I couldn't fall asleep last night until after 4, and got up at 6:30. YAWN!!)

So, I'm ready to get started. I am hopping some blogs at the moment, and am planning on starting my reading at 8 my time. Lets get started on reading!! 1st is Giving In by Maya Banks. 2nd, Gilded Ashes, by Rosamund Hodge. 3rd, I Know Lucy by Melissa Pearl. 4th, Beauty from Surrender by Georgia Cates.



Number of books I've read today: 4
Total number of books I've read: 4
Current Book:
Pages Read: 1000 (384 pages, 111 pages, 228 pages, 277 pages)
Time Read: 9 hr
Challenges Participated in: If you like X, try Y
Completed Books:

Informal Challenge from BoB ~ I don't do Twitter. I did leave a tweet (god, I hate that word) though. That will be all I do with it. I only have Twitter to keep up with sites who update on there when they are down (GoodReads recent outage) otherwise, I wouldn't have the thing. If you look over any of my posts (even this one) I'm WAY too long winded for Twitter, which is why I don't use it. So, hopefully I'll get some followers here, if not, that's ok too. :)

If you like X, Try Y Challenge

The Book Barbies are hosting the first BoB RaT Challenge, If you like X, Try Y.
Here are my submissions for the challenge ~

If you like historical fantasy fiction, try The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

If you like reading books about books, try The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

If you like Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, try Erebos by Ursula Poznanski

If you like Star Trek, try Redshirts by John Scalzi, read by Wil Wheaton

If you like 50 Shades (I don't), please try instead Shadowlands series by Cherise Sinclair or Sweet series by Maya Banks

Time to get reading for me. :) Will be back later on to check in, update and blog hop. If you leave a link, I'll follow your progress. :) I hope everyone has a great time!


  1. I'm probably the only person who hasn't read Night Circus and I know I should! I love the cover of that book, too.

    Happy Bout-of-Booking! :)

  2. I liked Erebos :) And The Night Circus :) Nice recommendations! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  3. Congrats on all that reading! That's amazing! I couldn't even imagine finding time to read 3 books in a day. Enjoy the rest of your read-a-thon!

  4. Bravo Bravo!! You deserve and award for the amount of reading you did today. I love it so much! I only use twitter every now and then. Really just for my blog. I know some people take it serious but I am like... eh? Whatever!

    Good luck tomorrow too!

    My Bout of Books Goals and Challenges

  5. Wow, you rocked it on day 1! That's awesome. Also, I totally agree with you about Club Shadowlands and the Sweet series. They are both great!

  6. I still haven't read The Night Circus, despite THE ENTIRE WORLD telling me to hurry up already. I really should get on that, shouldn't I? I have Redshirts on my TBR as well, so I'll give that a boost. I loved The Shadow of the Wind, and I'm a total sucker for books about books, so I like that recommendation! Good luck for day 2... :)
