Weekly Round Up + Bout of Books Wrap Up!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Well Bout of Books was my week aside from work and soaking up quality time before my friend goes to Australia!
Mini Challenge!
The New Year's Resolution Challenge!
hosted by Ex Libris
Pick a book and choose one or several characters from it and make up what would be their New Year's resolutions if they made any.
I picked my first Bout of Books read! Going for realistic resolutions because Lucy and Jude need some!
Lucy- To look past appearances and allow explanations before judgements!
Jude- To try and see situations from Lucy's point of view and lock doors before passing out!
Both- To communicate better through phone calls, texting, email, Skye- just communicate!
I love Lucy and Jude and their story is so compelling but they don't make their lives easy!
Goals Met?
  • To read 5 books.
  • See below!
  • To participate in at least one mini challenge
  • See above!
  • To comment on other blogs...
  • I was awful at this one!

    What I Read!
    Success! My FIRST readathon where I reached my goal!
    I actually read three of the books from my goals post as well, normally books I list before a readathon get 'jinxed'!
    Only downside is Through The Ever Night isn't on the list as I cannot get my hands on it! I have searched 8 bookshops- I'm determined not to buy it online as I have a voucher!

    Challenge Updates
    Genre Variety Challenge- 2/12
    New Adult Challenge-5/20.

    YA Contemporary Challenge- 1/10.
    First Reads- 2/11.
    Steady start- keep an eye on my Challenge page for updates!
    Other News
    The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski- Review and blog tour!

    Coming Up!
    Reviews- This week will have at least two reviews!
    Through The Ever Night- I will find it and read it!
