Bout of Books 14 Wrap Up

Bout of Books 14I can’t believe Bout of Books 14 is already over! My fourth time participating in the week-long readathon was a blast, as always, and I’m sad to see it go! BUT now I have a reason to look forward to January! I’m going to do a little wrap up of what I read and the challenges I participated in this week.

Total number of pages read: 1,354 (WOOOO!)

What I read this week:

  • The Curious Tale of the In-Between by Lauren DeStefano
  • The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
  • The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers
  • Wherever You Go by Pat Zietlow Miller
  • Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty
  • The Rose Society by Marie Lu
  • These single issue comics: Robin: Son of Batman #2, We Are Robin #2, Prez #2, Thor #8, Bat-Mite #1 and 2

My favorite read of the week: Hands down, The Rose Society. It’s almost not even fair to the other books.

Challenges participated in this week:

Other notes about the week: I’ve got to say, I’m pretty impressed with how much I read this week while working a full-time job, a part-time job, blogging, going to a book festival, and sleeping. I’m also really happy to say that I liked every single book I read, which is awesome. All of the challenges I participated in were super fun and different. I got to participate in the Twitter chat on Saturday, which was overwhelming and wonderful, as always. I can’t wait for the next round of Bout of Books.
