Bout of Books: Bookish Scavenger Hunt – Day 2 Challenge

This morning I finished my first book for the Bout of Books readathon and I will be posting my review tomorrow morning.  I started with Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon and after feeling BookTube-A-Thon burnout, it was exactly what I needed to propel me into my TBR pile.  The book was so amazing and I will definitely be reading everything else that Nicola Yoon publishes in the future.  I’m going to decide tomorrow which of the books on my TBR to pick up next depending on my mood.

The second challenge of the readathon is a Bookish Scavenger Hunt hosted by The Book Monsters.  We were given a list of guidelines to use as the scavenger hunt list and it’s up to the participant to use their library (personal or otherwise) to match the items below along with photos.

1. A book that starts with B


2. A book you’re planning to read / currently reading as part of Bout of Books


3. Blue book(s)


4. Books from your favorite genre

5. A book on your TBR shelf or of your full TBR shelves

Bout of Books: Wanderlust – Day 1 Challenge

This is my first time participating in Bout of Books and I’m going to make an effort to post the daily challenges throughout the week! This morning I posted my TBR – I’m aiming for 4 books in total but I’ll be happy with 3 as well.  The first day challenge is hosted by Leann @ Between Library Shelves and the topic is Fictional World Travel.  Participants are supposed to choose 3 to 6 books that are set in countries other than your own, display your choices in a creative way and share them on Leann’s blog.  Below are some of my favorite books that have given me a case of wanderlust!

Paris Anna & the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
London A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Venice – The Magician King by Lev Grossman
PragueDaughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Japan Paradise Kiss by Ai Yazawa
London – The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Bout of Books TBR!

I made a last minute decision to join in the Bout of Books readathon despite feeling slightly burnt out by BookTubeAThon.  My goal is to read 4-5 books this week (Bout of Books runs from August 17th – August 23rd).  Here’s what’s on my TBR!
