Bout of Books Updates

SO I have been providing updates on my Bout of Books progress via Twitter, but I decided to add a blog post to compile everything in one spot.

Day 1-Started Three Dark Crowns

For #insixwords I described myself as “Bookworm, cook, trivia master, dog lover”

Day 2-I didn’t actually sign up for the challenge until today, but I finished Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake (If you haven’t already preordered this one, you should!)

Here is my #shelfie4boutofbooks

Goals for the New Year

Each new year brings new challenges and this time we are talking about reading challenges!

Today I started my final term of grad school and will be graduating at the end of March. This means I need to be able to juggle my classes, job searches, and blogging. What it REALLY means is I don’t have time to sign up for every single awesome reading challenge out there (and there are a lot of them). After blog hopping and browsing my  Twitter feed, I finally narrowed down my final list of challenges for the year.

The Backlist Books Reading Challenge is hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews

*I chose this challenge because I recently did an inventory of my books and there are over 600 in my room alone. Unfortunately, I have read less than half of them. Continue reading
