Monday
Number of books I’ve read today: One
Total number of books I’ve read:  One
Books:  Immortals by Ednah Walters – 
Page Count:  320
First Impressions:
I really enjoyed book one and overlooked editing in the first because it was an ARC, but the editing was bad in this one too, and this was a finished copy.  I hope the author gets the editing bit together because I really want to love this series.
Social:
I was able to attend about half of the Twitter party before I fell ill again and had to retreat to my bed.  I missed out on both challenges because I just was not feeling well but I got to chat with some cool people on Twitter for a few minutes and read pretty much a whole book while I convalesced.  Today will be a better day, For Sure!

Bout of Books Starting Line: My Goals for the Week!

Bout of Books

Well, and away we go.  Officially Bout of books started nearly 10 hours for me.

I am really sick this week, and have been for about 3 weeks now, so I was going to sit it out, but I decided, what the hell.  I will just keep it kind of laid back this time around and see what I can accomplish.  I am not going to set any hard and fast goals, just going to participate as best I am able and see what I can get done.  We will see how that goes.  I am going to make every effort to do as many challenges as possible, read as much as I can, and make the Twitter chats.
How about you?  What are your Bout of Books goals?

Bout of Books 11 is almost here! #Boutofbooks

Bout of Books
It’s that time again! Bout of Books 11 starts midnight tonight!!!!  I have been sick and hopefully I will be well enough to participate fully.
Taken from the Bout of Books website:
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, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

ARC August Week 1 Update:

Well, I am off to a fairly slow start.  I did finish The Archived by Victoria Schwab, which I LOVED! I mean, so good, you have no idea.  It got off to a really slow start and that almost turned me off, but when the book picked up, it really picked up.  The review is to come, so be on the lookout.

I have started Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Mass and it is a bit different from the other books in the series.

I am about 28% of the way into The Unbound by Victoria Schwab and so far, it is really good.
