– Day 18: Least favourite book? –

I will start by saying that I do have a least favorite Harry Potter book, but that’s just it: it’s a least favorite, I still love it, but just not as much as the others – it still comes ahead of several others books that I love.

That book is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I honestly can’t give you a specific reason, I would have to re-read everything to give you some points, but overall it’s the one I find most frustrating to read. Hermione is not in a huge chunk of it, it could be a reason… But we meet the Burrow, and I love the Burrow!

My first Read-a-thon: Bout of Books 14

For a few weeks now I’ve been seeing posts about this thing, Bout of Books 14, a read-a-thon. Now, I’ve been itching to participate in one, but generally the goals are a bit too high for my time availability. But this one has no set goals, I can make my own, so seriously, why the hell not?!


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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Reading Goals:

I’ll set my goals reasonably, because I don’t want to fail miserably on my first attempt at a Read-a-thon (and because I still need to get some actual work done during this week). So, I plan to read 3 books:

1. The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis – I started this one last night and I’m loving it so far. I’m having a really big problem putting it down, which again, is not convenient because I do need to work. This is an eARC and want to finish it tomorrow at most.

2. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh – this one is in my August TBR and I have to finish it by August 22, because I want to participate on the August readalong hosted by BIBLIOPHILE GATHERING.

3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – which is also in my August TBR, but I’ve been putting it off because I wanted to get a move on on some ARCs (to get my stats up on Netgalley). But I’ll wait no more, it will be done before next sunday.

So this is it, let’s see how it goes. Ideally I would also be able to start a fourth book this week, but I’m not that optimistic considering my work load.
