Entry & Day One
This is my first time participating in Bout of Books Readathon, and I’m very excited! Here’s some more information if (like me) you haven’t heard of it before:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Okay. Now it’s on to the fun stuff. For this readathon I will be reading:
- The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker: I’m currently at 19% and not loving it. I was debating making it a DNF, but I think with the readathon I will push through and finish it instead.
- The Lifeboat Clique by Kathy Parks: I started this one today and so far so good! I want to finish it by Sunday.
Book to Movie Adaptations!
My favorite would have to be The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I can’t actually think of anything that bothered me too much about the movie, and I saw it twice in theaters because I liked it so much.
My least favorite is a lot easier to think of: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. I love this book. It’s one of my favorites. But the movie- oh. To say it fell flat would be the biggest understatement. I don’t think I’ll ever get over my disappointment on this one.
Okay, that’s all for me! Are you doing the Bout of Books Readathon? Let me know in the comments!
Well Wishes & Candy Fishes,
