Bout of Books 13 TBR

As this is my very last week at uni and all I have is revision, I feel I will have enough time to take part in this! And my plan is very simple: Finish all the books I’m currently reading and finish all the books I have left at uni with me! So the TBR is as follows…

Currently Reading

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)Car FeverThe One (The Selection #3)

Still at Uni with Me

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through The Looking-GlassThe Jungle BookTreasure Island

As for goals…I think I’ll keep it nice and simple:
1. Read as much as I can
2. Finish GoT (finally, please!)
3. Finish all my CR
4. Read at least 300 pages
5. Read everyday! (< but this was a year goal anyway)

I may even part-take in the challenges this time!! ^_^ Good luck to everyone joining in!

Bout of Books

I will be participating in Bout of Books 11 which wil start tomorrow! The read-a-thon for me has hit on the perfect week because Friday I am finally travelling back to England from Japan and my travel time in total is something like 34 hours, so lots of time to read!! At least on that day xD So, firstly; goals:

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

Bout of Books 10 – Day #7

Image

Well it is now 00:03am on Monday which means the Bout of Books 10 is over for me! Let’s see how I did shall we?

Day #7

Currently Reading: Battle Royale (from page 319), L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 30 (from 24%)

Books Completed: N/A

Pages Read Today: 79 (Battle Royale = 48 / Volume 30 = 31 aka. 9%)

Total: 274 pages

Now, if I had chosen one small/medium sized book for the Read-A-Thon, I technically would’ve finished one book this week (274 pages is a book size!) and reading 274 pages in a week is a massive improvement for me anyway! So overall; I be happy! Also, I have thoroughly enjoyed every page I have read this Read-A-Thon which is another great success and I cannot wait to carry these books on in a more ‘relaxed’ environment although, I hope I can finish them by the end of this week =]

How did you do? What’s your total page count? How many books did you finish? Most importantly; are you happy with your total?!
