Bout of Books Update #3

I'm really enjoying The Summer I Turned Pretty.  It wasn't quite what I expected it to be but it's really got me interested now.  I read 70 pages in it on Day 3 of Bout of Books.

Bout of Books Update #2

I started reading The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han and read 54 pages.  I was out all evening or I'm sure I would have read even more.  The book is not what I was expecting but I really like it.

My Bout of Books TBR Pile

This is the TBR pile I have so far...I should be getting a few graphic novels from the library this week that I've placed holds on, but so far this is what I have to read.  I'm almost done with Secrets of my Hollywood Life and have started Fray so those should be easy to finish.  Morning Glories Vol. 3  I have been dieing to read and The Summer I Turned Pretty is supposed to be really good.  So hopefully this pile will get me going pretty well!

Booktube-A-Thon is over!  I read some and had loads of fun watching people's videos and seeing what others were reading.  I

Here's my results:

I finished challenges 1 (Blue cover) 5 & 6 (Read a book without letting go of it and a book you really want to read).

I never get as much reading done as I think I will (though a RAT that's not during soccer season would be probably give me a better total) but I do get more read than I would without these RATs. I'm only one book away from making my yearly goal.  Woohoo!
