Bout of Books Challenge: Would You Rather

The wonderful Lori over at Writing My Own Fairytale is hosting the Would You Rather challenge for Bout of Books, and I thought it looked like a lot of fun. Let me know what you would choose in the comments!


Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?
WHY WHY WHY WHY? I’d rather not do either, but if I HAD to choose, I’d go with the dog-earer. At least those can be somewhat folded back flat. Cheeto stains though? Never coming out.


Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?
Again, super tough choice here. But I’ve been lucky enough to meet a ton of my favorite authors, so I’m going to go with a character of my choice – the question is…would I want to meet Mim (from Mosquitoland), Ronan Lynch (from The Raven Cycle), or Simon Spier (from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – because we’d totally be BFFs). CHOICES.



Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?
Dude. I work in a library but I mean, book storesss. Unless it was freaking Belle’s library we’re talking about, I’d have to go with never being allowed in a library again.


Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?
Favorite couple, for sure. Because I’d have to break up Cricket and Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door (I’m sorry) and finally be with my favorite book boyfriend. Lolololol.


Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?
The Scarlet Letter.

What would you choose?

Bout of Books 15 | Sign Up, TBR, Updates

Bout of Books 15I’ve been debating whether or not I wanted to sign up for Bout of Books 15 for a couple of weeks, but I had to. I always have an absolute blast, especially with the Twitter chats, and even though I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for reading, that’s not what matters. As long as I’m reading a little bit, that’s what matters. Don’t know what Bout of Books is?

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, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th 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 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’m keeping my TBR and goals super low this year so there’s no stress AT ALL. If I read more than this, GREAT. If I don’t, that’s cool too. My goals are pretty much non-existant. Basically, my whole outlook for this Bout of Books is HAVE FUN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. 🙂


  • Continue my reread of the illustrated Harry Potter book, one chapter a day
  • SIEGE AND STORM by Leigh Bardugo
  • One single issue comic a day


  • Read for at least 30 minutes every day.
  • If I can’t read that long, don’t worry about it!
  • Have fun.
  • If I can, do one Twitter chat and one challenge.
