All good things must come to an end... and unfortunately that means Bout of Books 8.0 ends today.
This was my first Bout of Books and I am already excited to participate in the next installment that begins on January 6! This read-a-thon gave me license to forego all housework for 7 days to read instead. I successfully read three books over the course of the week - Charmed Thirds by Megan McCafferty, Insurgent by Veronica Roth and Legend by Marie Lu. I only met about 1/2 of my original reading goals that I posted here, but that's okay. Reading three books in one week is something that I haven't done in a long time so I am glad I was able to retreat from the world for a little bit.
I started to read Fourth Comings by Megan McCafferty today to finish the Jessica Darling series and I just couldn't. It was such a let down and I'm sad that I can't finish out the series but I would rather hold on to the great first two books in that series and the Jessica Darling that I know and love rather than spoil them with less than stellar writing and plot in the end of the series.
So, now that Bout of Books 8.0 is over -- what's next?
I started reading The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel a few weeks ago but did not get more than 20 or 30 pages into the book. I am going to pick that up again tonight and enjoy the warm weather before September - and autumn - rolls in. My Fall 2013 TBR and Anticipated Reads should also be up sometime this week!
