Day 2 Challenge – Book Plot Emoji

I am really liking the idea of this challenge so here I am! For extra fun (on my side) I’m not adding the title I was thinking of, so you could guess it if you wanted. Some clues because I think it’s relatively hard to guess: it’s YA, has a rating of 3.4 on Goodreads, but only ~ 2.500 ratings.

Bout of Books 23 | Sign Up + Goals

It’s finally time for another Bout of Books! I’ve been looking forward to the Bout of Books this time around because I think that I’ve actually got enough time on my hands to spend on reading especially! So with this post I will be signing up as well as set some goals for myself! The following is the blurb from the official site:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be trying to read every day. Since I’m signing up with Monday nearly over for me I’ve got a little less time on my hands but it’ll be alright. Wednesday and Saturday are the only days that I’ve got important activities planed that take up the whole day, so I won’t be reading much on those.

My Goals

Generally I’m setting goals similar to the ones I always set for Bout of Books.

  • Have fun!
  • Read at least 500 pages.

Books to Read and Listen To


There will be one post every single day or sometimes one post every other day on here for updates. I’ll also try and use my Twitter more. You can find it here. Also, if we aren’t yet friends on Goodreads, add me there so over there I’ll also keep my progress up-to-date!


Let me know if you’re participating as well and let’s have a great week! ♡

Bout of Books 20 | Final Day

It’s over and I’ve made it! Not that there would have been any way not to make it in this readathon. Thanks Bout of Books 20! I’ve been more mindful regarding my reading and reading habits. It also made me be more on here, which I love although I spend way too little time on here. Thanks to everyone who commented and left lovely positive vibes! I hope you’ve had a lovely week and are all feeling well ♡♡
