Bout Of Books 7.0

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I will be participating in the bout of books book-a-thon. This is the first book-a-thon I am doing in a really long time, so I am super-duper excited for it. 

Time Devoted to Reading 

I will be doing the read-a-thon the whole week, probably most of the time unless I have to go out somewhere.

My Goal

I have decided to read a total of 6 books the whole week, since my minimum weekly reads is usually 2-3. I will be reading:
1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
2. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
3. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald 
5. Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume
6. That Summer by Sarah Dessen 



Total number of books I've read: None Yet 
Books read: None Yet
Currently reading: Pushing The limits & The Great Gatsby 
Notes: Today was a sucky day for reading, but I enjoyed doing the Book Spines Poem (below). And I hope that I can get more reading done tomorrow.

Total number of books I've read: None (woke up late today, tomorrow will be better.)
Books read: None
Currently reading: The Great Gatsby 
Notes: I have to finish reading 6 books in 5 days, planning of finishing 2 books tomorrow hope I can get up early, because it's already 2:45 in the night here. Gonna go to sleep now, wish everyone who is participating good luck, hope you reach your goal. 

Wednesday  5/15
Total number of books I've read: None
Books read: None
Currently reading: The Great Gatsby
Notes: Okay so I have been procrastinating the whole day today and haven't even touched any book, at this rate I don't think I will be able to read 6 books, so I am reducing my goal to 4 books. I am suppose to read any 4 books out of the 6 books I planned on reading. 

Total number of books I've read: None (I have no idea what is wrong with me this week.)
Books read: None
Currently reading:The Great Gatsby
Notes: I don't know what's going on with me this week, I am not getting any reading done. This read-a-thon has been officially suckish for me. I guess this is just a slump.

Okay so I didn't fill in the rest of the notes because it would have all been the same, I didn't even finish one book this week, and I am still reading The Great Gatsby. But I am going to try to finish some books this week, and post some reviews. And I am also going to try and make this blog better, just try and bare with me for a while.
