Bout of Books Update #7 & Wrap Up


I read 94 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han and finished it.  I enjoyed it so much and will definitely be reading the rest in the series.

The Golden Globes took up a large portion of the day.

So glad I stuck with it so I could fall in love with this book.


During this Bout of Books I only read from To All the Boys I've Loved Before for a total of 309 pages.  That doesn't sound impressive but I haven't read much in the last few months.  I really enjoyed this book and it was nice to read just for the pleasure of reading so I'm actually really happy with my reading.

Bout of Books Update #5


I only read 12 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. We seemed to be busy with things today and Honey was wound so it was hard to read at home.

I enjoyed this movie so much!  It cut into reading time but it was so worth it.

Bout of Books Update #4


I read 45 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.  I enjoyed it a lot more today though whether that's because the story is getting better or my mood was so good I'm not sure.

I had a medical scare and got good news today.  We went to Benihana to celebrate.

Bout of Books Update #3


I read 38 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.

Richard got me tickets for the Degas exhibit for Christmas and we enjoyed that today.

Bout of Books Update #2


I read 39 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.  I'm not enjoying it as much as I hoped but I'm hanging in there.

Honey had her last round of puppy shots today.  (She was more concerned about the car ride than the shots.)

Bout of Books Update #1


I read 40 pages in To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han.


I started this book last year, read 25 pages and never picked it back up.  I've enjoyed what I've read so far.  We tried out a new local coffee shop at the same time.

I'm taking part in Bout of Books!

This will be the seventh time I've taken part on Bout of Books and I'm really looking forward to it. It's a great way to start the year off on the right note.  I'll post a TBR pile tomorrow.
