Bout of Books 14 Day 1 + My Birthday

Hey, today’s my birthday! I turned 24 today and it wasn’t a horrible day, but I did work the majority of the day. AND THEN IT GOT BETTER. My husband spoiled me and got me a card, gift card, seven books, two bookmarks, and paid for our dinner at Olive Garden. Suffice it to say, I have the best hubby ever. ❀


I got the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, books 1, 3-7 (book 2 has been ordered) and I hope I like it because I got the full series. I got it because of a recommendation video from a trusted reviewer, so I’m really hoping I like it!

I also got the third book in the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo in paperback – now I can finally marathon it!

And two awesome bookmarks. I love the blue one. xD

Anywho, what about Bout of Books!? Well, the first day went really well! Here’s my progress so far:

  • The Final Empire: 9 pages read
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: 27 pages read
  • A Thousand Pieces of You: 11 pages read
  • A Game of Thrones: 0 pages read

Hey, I read three chapters over the course of three books, which is great! That’s a total of 47 pages read yesterday! Woo!

Oh! I also participated in the challenge for yesterday, which was to find 3-6 books that take place in other countries that aren’t the one you live in. Here’s what I came up with:


Today, day 2, my current progress is 18 pages in “Forbidden” by Kimberley Griffiths Little. It’s not one of the books on my TBR for the readathon, but I wanted to start reading it to see what it was about. So far it’s interesting.

So far I’m doing well! But since it’s my birthday today, reading’s being put off for a little bit. But I think that’s a perfectly valid excuse!

If you’re participating in Bout of Books, let me know how you’re doing! If you’re not participating, let me know what you’re currently reading!

  1. Happy Birthday!! Sounds like you’re having a lovely day πŸ™‚

    I started reading Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson yesterday and got 102 pages in, and finished the rest today. I’m pretty happy with my progress but I won’t start another book until tomorrow.


    • You’re welcome! Definitely check it out; it’s fun, relaxed, and you get to knock some books off of your TBR. I know the feeling! Try putting some book titles on pieces of paper and pulling them out of a jar or hat to see what to read next. Unless you’re a mood reader like me, then good luck to you. xD
