The challenge for day three on Bout of Books 20 was to “take a selection of your favorite book spines to make a rainbow! Share on Twitter or Instagram.” I actually had fun doing this! Although I now realize that I do not have very many yellow books, so now I will be more drawn to yellow covers, lol, I just know it! I went with the full rainbow of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. Anyhow here was my entry for the challenge which I posted on both Twitter and Instagram:
Does that look like a convincing rainbow to you? It does to me because I love each and every one of those stories and love seeing them showcased like that BUT I am also a huge book nerd…..so I am not impartial. Ha ha
Once again, here is the short and dirty list of the books I plan to read for this week:
Dark Fire by Christine Feehan
Sweet Reality by Laura Heffernan
Sweet Sacrifice by L.D. Rose
A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas
Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust
Nyxia by Scott Reintgen
The Longing and the Lack by C.M. Spivey
Death’s’ Mistress by Terry Goodkind
- Total pages to be read: 2,627
- The books highlighted in blue are advanced reading copies so you can expect a review to be coming on those soon.
Progress on day 3 of the challenge:
Dark Fire by Christine Feehan, 390 pages Sweet Reality by Laura Heffernan, 236 pages Sweet Sacrifice by L.D. Rose, 152 pages A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas, 336 pages Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust, 372 pages
Nyxia by Scott Reintgen, 384 pages
The Longing and the Lack by C.M. Spivey, 245 pages
Death’s’ Mistress by Terry Goodkind, 512 pages (174/512)
Total Pages Completed: 1,660/2,627
Now I barely and I mean BARELY finished reading Girls Made of Snow and Glass before midnight last night so that I could officially call it day three. Wow! That book is truly a retelling of Snow White but at the same time completely different. I definitely recommend that book to fans of retellings.
All right for day 4 I plan to read Nyxia and read some more of Death’s Mistress. In addition I have about 6 or 7 chapters to read of Strange the Dreamer for my book of the month read. It is going to be another busy day for me so fingers crossed I can knock these goals out.
