Bout of Books 12.0 Day 7 & Final Wrap-up

Seventh Day Recap

Pages Read Today: 250
Total Pages Read: 1600
Books Read:
  • The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
  • All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr 
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
  • Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Catalyst by S.J. Kincaid
  • Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle (in progress)

I finished Catalyst tonight and I thought it was a fantastic ending to the trilogy. I was a little apprehensive because I didn't like the second book that much but the third and final book definitely redeemed the series. Then, I  started Vivian Apple at the End of the World just as the read-a-thon was coming to a close hear on the East Coast. With just about an hour left, I managed to read 100 pages and I probably should have read this one sooner because it seems like it's going to be a quick read.

Overall, I had such a great time participating in Bout of Books 12.0. It was only my second time participating and while I didn't read as many pages as the first time, I was more involved with the community which made the experience so much better. The Twitter chats were a blast and I met so many other great bloggers that I'll continue to follow and talk to even after the read-a-thon. I will definitely be participating again the next time! Thank you to the hosts for creating such a wonderful experience and to all my reader friends out there, happy reading!

  1. You read so much! And I've been hearing a lot of excitement for Vivian Apple at the End of the World, wonder if I should probably take a peek at it... Hope you'll join BoB again in May!
