Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day Seven

There was no challenge for Day 7 other than to read AND read I did! This was such a fun reading experience! I will absolutely do the next one in January 2018!

Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day Six

The challenge for day six was “Who’s the character you LOVE to HATE? Share with us one (or more!) of the characters you love to hate.” This challenge took me awhile to ponder. Who do I love to hate? Then it came to me: Tamlin from The Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I loved him so much as a character but it slowly turned to […]

Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day Three

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!

Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day Two

The challenge of day two was to “rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character’s point of view.” This challenge I was not able to do. I really wanted to but time slipped away and then well…I just forgot. I was caught up reading which I suppose is an excuse I can live with. 😀 On day two I was able to finish two books. I enjoyed them both […]

Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day one

The challenge of day one was to introduce yourself on either “Twitter or Instagram using six words, no more, no less.” I went with Twitter because lets be real, it is easier. My #insixwords was “Sassy, Friendly, Book Reviewer, Book Lover.” Later that night I participated in @BoutofBooks tweet chat, that was an experience. Anyone following me on twitter was probably like “WTF” with all the tweets flying that had […]
