Final Bout of Books 19 Update – May 8-14

Hooray!🎉 I mean Awww 😔Bout of Books 19 is over. This was my first time participating and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, connected with some really cool bloggers and got more reading suggestions.

I didn’t get all the books read, but some are better than none, right? And it’s so satisfying to get a few of the books on my TBR list read.

Here are the final stats:

And drumroll, please!🥁🥁🥁

  • # of pages read: 889
  • # of books read: 4
  • Currently Reading: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. It wasn’t part of my Bout of Books, but it’s a library book and part of my Horror Novel reading challenge.

Here’s what I read and didn’t get a chance to read:

  1. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
  2. The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen (ARC) (Finished 5/12/17)
  3. Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo A. Anaya
  4. The Giver by Lois Lowry (Finished 5/9/17)
  5. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
  6. Persepolis Parts 1 & 2 by Marjane Satrapi (Finished 5/10/17)
  7. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

I’m still 7 books behind on my reading goals for the year, but fingers crossed 🤞 I’ll keep my reading mojo and get caught up in the next few weeks.

You can follow my progress on Goodreads.

I going to participate in Bout of Books 20 which will run from August 21st to August 27th. Make sure to save the date so you can join in the reading fun.
