Bout of Books Update Post

I'm sad to announce that I signed up for Bout of Books wrong and am not eligible for any of the great prizes, but I will be participating in all the fun anyway and updating this page with the days reading goals and some of the challenges. They're all really creative, so I thought, heck, I'll do them and just post them here. Just because I can't win a prize doesn't mean I shouldn't indulge in the festivities, right?

Sarah Says Read
Question: What is one bookish thing you want to do before you die? OR what is one thing you want to do before you die that was inspired by a book you read?

Answer: There are so many things I’d love to do that are totally bookish, but the top thing on my list is to write a novel or two and have them published. Lofty goals, I know.

Next on my list would be to attend BEA or any other book festival and meet all my favorite authors as well as some of the great blogger friends I’ve met online.

Basically this one was to show what we were eating/drinking/and reading through a picture or just a simple comment. Well, a picture speaks a million words, right?

August 20:

Reading Goals:
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong - 127 (Page 246)
Immortals by Ednah Walters - 242
(Total for day - 369)

All you have to do is rename the book you're currently reading or more if you'd like. If you've haven't started a book, you can judge it by the cover. For all you bothered people, if this is too easy, don't worry! You can remake the whole cover if you'd like as well.

I'd rename it:
Cougars Running Wild.

August 21

Reading Goals:

1.  Which 5 books are at the top of your TBR pile at this moment?

2.  If I gave you a wad of cash and sent you into a bookshop right now, which 5 books would you buy to add to the stack?

Okay, now I'm going to be lazy and just list the books I'd buy to add to this stack!
THE CALLING -  Kelley Armstrong
THE RISING - Kelley Armstrong
SHADOW OF NIGHT - Deborah Harkness
DOCTOR SLEEP - Stephen King
ALLEGIANT - Veronica Roth (Yes, I know... I'd preorder)

Mini-Challenge 2

This one was so fun, now I want to go around and make poetry out of all my book spines!


  1. You know I read the post but all I can think about is Mini Reese's Peanut Butter cups. How did I not know these existed and why are they missing from my life?!

    1. WHAT???? You didn't know about Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Oh my! They are my life savers!!!

  2. Love your poem! And beware, they can be addicting :)

    Thanks for participating in the challenge and good luck!
