The Bout of Books 6.0 is over! How did you go with your goals?
Once again a big well-done and thanks is due to the organisers of the event, Kelly and Amanda. Sit down and put your feet up, ladies (and read a book?)!
I surprised myself this time around by getting much more time to read than I thought would be possible. I got through five books, plus a novella – a grand total of 1763 pages! My full list of goals and daily updates are over at my goals post, if you’re interested.
I didn’t get much of a chance to twitter this time, but I did visit quite a few new (to me) blogs. I love how many people get right into the read-a-thon spirit! Thanks to everyone who visited and left messages over the last week!
And now, I have a mountain of reviews to get through. Look out for reviews of these books coming very soon!
Books I read
- Under the Never Sky, Veronica Rossi (last 316 pages)
- Graceling, Kristin Cashore (352)
- The Last Dragonslayer, Jasper Fford (281)
- Roar and Liv (Under the Never Sky #0.5), Veronica Rossi (64)
- Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky #2), Veronica Rossi (352)
- The Gathering Dark, Leigh Bardugo (308)
- Besieged, Rowena Cory Daniells – (first 90 pages).
So… when’s the next one? 😀

Ooh, you read some great-looking books! Which was your favourite? Know what you mean about the mountain of reviews that need writing now! Congrats on all the reading you got done 🙂
My favourite had to be The Gathering Dark (Shadow and Bone) – I have no idea why I waited so long to read it! I also really enjoyed the Under the Never Sky books.
My my! You read some wonderful books. How was Graceling?

Graceling was good but not my favourite.. I didn’t really like the writing style that much. It was an enjoyable story though!
Great job and I love the books you read. I have most of them on my TBR list, but I haven’t picked them up yet.
Thanks Shirley! Now I have the problem of having such a busy week that I haven’t managed to get to any reviews at all yet :-/
1763 pages – great job! WOW 🙂
Oh man you read some awesome books, super jealous 😀
