Bout of Books 10.0 Readathon Wrap Up!



Okay, so I'm taking the lazy way out but I have no time at all to film. Therefore, I'm doing a write-up version of my wrap up.

So Bout of Books 10.0 lasted for a week, running from 12th May to 18th May. I had 4 books in mind that I wanted to tackle, 2 being repeats of my #AYearAThon Readathon that I never managed to get to.


I can now tell you guys that I did a terrible job for this readathon. I should be disappointed but I have been so caught up with university and work, I guess that's a good enough reason.

Day #1: I started and got 100 pages into Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J Maas. I was suppose to read this for the #AYearAThon but didn't, so it was first on my list.

Day #2: I don't quite remember my page count for this day, but I do remember being almost at the end of Throne of Glass.

Day #3: Managed to finish off, finally. It took me awhile to read for some reason. I did a mini thought review on Goodreads (here), but will try and do a full review soon!

Day #4: I started The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by Jenny Han despite actually planning to read the second book to the Throne of Glass series. I felt like I needed something light to push my number of pages up. Also, Regan of PeruseProject absolutely raved about it!

Day #5: Finished off The Summer I Turned Pretty which was quite enjoyable (again Goodreads mini review here), but I wasn't wowed by it.

Day #6: Read bits and pieces from the other two books I wanted to read. I started Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe, but jumped back to Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas. I worked in the morning and was out during the day so I barely managed to get anything done though.

Day #7: I decided to stay with Bad Kitty for awhile because it's humour grew on me, but picked up The Legacy by Katherine Webb. I started that 2 weeks ago and decided I felt like I reading something a little more thought provoking.


I ended up finishing 2 books, page counts: 404 + 276 = 680 pages. Then I read bits and pieces of other novels, page counts: 43 + 23 + 30 = 96 pages.

Total: 776 pages. Not too bad of an effort, but I definitely could've done better.

If you took part leave a comment down below telling me how you faired! You probably did better than me.

    I'm in the middle of my Jenny Han marathon right now, and I felt the same about The Summer I Turned Pretty. The series gets more interesting, but I still regard it as a simple beach read.

  2. Yeah, like I think it would be a nice summer read. Maybe I read it in the wrong season. It was nice, just not THE best.

  3. Congrats on what you were able to finish! Here are my Bob RaT Stats
