Bout of Books 11: Final Update

Bout of Books

Sunday, it is the end of the Read-A-Thon and I am happy to report I managed all of my goals. Finished my 2 books, posted a review and, even though yesterday I didn't read or visit any blog since I was out of the house with no internet all day, today I compensated for both.

I had so much fun! And next one, coming on January 2015, will be my third and I will be officially a professional Bout-of-Booker.

Books started

  • The Late Starters Orchestra: I received this one through LybraryThing and I really want to get to it before going on vacation next week, when I plan to read The Fever by Megan Abbott.
Books finished:
  • The Tumble Inn: I did not love it, but it was a nice read. I will do my best to post my review tomorrow :) 
  • The Name of the Wind: This book was simply amazing! 
  • How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happen: My third ARC finished for #ARCAugust. My review will be up soon.
    Pages read so far: 960

      • One True Pairing by Infinite Ink. Just in case I am spoiling it for anyone I will only say that my true pairing comes from Daughter of Smoke and Bone!
      • Create a sentence by Book Reviews by a Christian Gal. I tweeted my sentence, but just in case:
      It was felling night, the first time, standing in a crowded elevator, Eilert Berg was not a happy man.
            The name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfus
            The Fever by Megan Abot
            The Late Starters orchestra by Ari L. Goldman
            The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg 
            If you Liked this: The Girl with the Dragon Tatooby Stieg Larson
            Try this: The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg
           Because they are both set in Sweden, involve very dark, grimy crimes and because actually Camilla Lackberg's noir novellas were out before the Millenium ones and they are pretty cool.
           I chose to recreate The Taker by Alma Katsu

      See you tomorrow!
