Bout of Books 23: Updates

I am doing this again! La La

For the uninitiated, here you go.

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. 


  • Read atleast two books

  • Visit 5 blogs each day
  • Participate in all daily challenges


Day 1: Introduce Yourself #insixwords
Book hoarder, librocubicularist, adventurous, traveler, passionate
Day 2:  Book Plot Emoji
Tell the plot of a book (recent read, favorite, whatever) with emojis.


Day 3: Literary Villain: Who are your favorite literary bad guys? Can be a villain, a not-so-good-guy, or anti-hero.

Can’t really think about anyone but I didn’t like Imogen from Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.

Finished reading 

Day 4: Book Trip: Share books set in places you want to visit. Make a road trip of settings in the US or a dream vacation. Or you can think outside the box and choose fantasy, paranormal, historical, or sci-fi setting. Like Hogwarts!



Day 5: Bookish Playlist: What’s a song that always reminds you of a certain book? Is it something the characters listen to? Do the lyrics remind you of the plot? Make a list of at least three songs and match them each with a book.

          1. 1. This might be cheating but this song (“Will you still love me“) from the same movie always reminds me of The Great Gatsby.

    2. “I will always love you” reminds me of P. S. I love you. 

  1. 3. “Bonfire heart” reminds me of


Day 7: Stretch Goal: Look at the goals you set for the week and decide a) how you can stretch yourself to complete them or b) how you can revise them so you can meet them.

Gonna try to read half of my second book if not all. Today being a major festival, this might be a bit of a stretch.
