Bout of Books 26: Day 6


Leave a Review

Did you know? Book reviews help other readers discover new books. For today's challenge, we encourage you to write a review of a book you've read during the readathon (or recently) and publish it where other readers make their purchasing decisions (e.g., Amazon, Goodreads, etc.). Be sure to share it with us.


Visit Goodreads to read the rest of my review.

Today: Beyond Bout of Books


I've been meaning to get back to the Outlander series for a while. I loved the first three books but I can't seem to get myself started on the fourth one. To be honest, the length of the books scare me. However, I made it a goal for 2019 to cross this book off my list. It just won't be during the Bout of Books readathon.


I read only 20 pages from the Kubrick's Game (my eyesight was terrible yesterday) so instead I listened to 4 hours of Ready Player One. I only have 2.5 hours left on the audiobook.

I also participated in Day 1's challenges, which you can see here, as well as the Twitter Chat.

I finished listening to Ready Player One (2.5 hours) and wrote a review with my husband. You can check it out here.

I read 20 pages from Kubrick's Game and started reading Sweets & a Stabbing by Harper Lin on my Nook. So far I've read 18 pages.

Today was a super hot day here in Southern California and our a/c sucks. I hardly did any reading but instead hopped around people's homes, restaurants, and stores trying to smooch off free a/c.

However, I did read in between here and there. I read 40 pages from Kubrick's Game and I started listening to Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins. I listened to about 50 minutes of the audiobook.

Today was a better day for reading. I read 117 pages from Kubrick's Game (it's getting so good!) and listened to an hour of Forbidden.

It was one hectic day and I was afraid I would not be able to get any reading done, but I did! I finished Kubrick's Game!!! (Read the rest of 156 pages....Review will come soon) I also was able to listen to 1 hour and 36 minutes of Forbidden. I am so proud of myself!

Now, what can I accomplish in the last two days of the readathon?
