MARIA’S BOUT OF BOOKS WRAP UP

1. Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins ★★★★
This was the perfect read for a read-a-thon, I loved every minute of it. It really was a “feel good” book.

2. Spirit bound by Richelle Mead ★★★★
I admit that it took me a while to get into this book, but it was so good once I did! I was so happy to get back into the vampire academy world and read more about the awesome characters.

3. The Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead ★★★★★
Favorite book of the read-a-thon! This was amazing! An amazing last book of the series. I loved it.

Unfortunately I didn’t finish Opal by Jennifer Armentrout, but I am almost finished with it now. I am sorry for the lack of updates and lack of reading towards the end of the read-a-thon. The Last Sacrifice was so good – it put me in a bit of a reading slump. I also had a lot going on at work and less time on my hands. However, I am still content with finishing those three books. They were great reads and I CANT WAIT TO READ SOME MORE RICHELLE MEAD. I have to get my hands on her other books now.

How did you do in the BOUT OF BOOKS read-a-thon? Comment below!

MALLORY’S BOUT OF BOOKS DAY 4 UPDATE

I can’t even believe that the readathon is soon coming to an end. This week is absolutely flying by but at the same time it is going so slow. I finally leave for my vacation tomorrow and I am unbelievably excited.

Yesterday was an okay day of reading, didn’t get any major reading in.

Book: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It’s currently 11:00 pm so I have another hour until day five ends so I’m now going to snuggle in my bed and read some more.

Book: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Total read: 12% (finished book)

Book: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
Total read: 500 pages

It might have taken me a little while to get back into the vampire academy world, after not reading it for so long, but once I did it was amazing and so addicting! I love Richelle Meads writing. I love Rose, Lissa and Dimitri. I will have to pick up either Bloodlines or Succubus Blues after finishing the VA series. Which series should I read first?

MALLORY’S BOUT OF BOOKS DAY 3 UPDATE

Okay so it’s almost 9:00 pm and I just got home from work so I’m going to very quickly give you yesterday’s update and get right back to my reading! Hard to believe we are halfway through the readathon already!

Still need to finish two books before the week is over to meet my goals, and I think I can, I think I can! I’m in such a great reading mood. Not to mention reading on my beautiful new Kobo Aura definitely helps!

Let me know in the comments what book you are currently reading! I’m going to get back to Opal now. Ugh, never want this series to end. I love me some Daemon that’s for sure.

MARIA’S BOUT OF BOOKS DAY 3 UPDATE

Book: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Read: 82%

Books finished: 1

I had a day off yesterday, so I was able to read more than usual, but I had a hard time getting in the “reading mood”. I didn’t really feel like reading, but pushed myself to read Spirit Bound. I’m glad I did push myself though, because the more I read – the better the book got – and now I am so excited to finish Spirit Bound so that I can jump right into Last Sacrifice. I love this series!

MALLORY’S BOUT OF BOOKS DAY 2 UPDATE

Well day three is almost at an end for me, but for now I’m just going to share my results from yesterday.

Book: Atonement by Ian McEwan
Total read: 117 pages (finished book)

Book: Allies of the Night
Total read: 209 pages (finished book)

I had a super day yesterday finishing up two books. Today I was a little busier working, going to my hot yoga practice and taking my mom out for her birthday.

And now it is currently 10:30 pm and I am going to get a bit of last minute reading in before bed time.

How is the readathon going for you so far? Let me know!

MARIA’S BOUT OF BOOKS DAY 1 AND 2 UPDATE

Well….. Unfortunately I was away both Monday and Tuesday. I’m a bit discouraged, but I’m hoping to be able to read more today on my day off. As long as my boyfriend doesn’t bother me…
