Bout of Books ~ Wrap up

August 22, 2016 Challenges 5

boutbooks17Geesh, with college classes starting today I almost forgot all about making an update page so you guys can see my progress. I doubt I get much done but I am going to give it a go anyway and hopefully I can at least finish one or two books. 🙂

Had a change up in my line up cause I couldn’t make up my mind what to read…lol.

Currently reading/Listening too:

In the Barren Ground Grace Among Thieves Accidental scot tea with milk and murder

Monday: First day of classes started so I think I did okay for having this interruption…lol.

Read 10% of In the Barren Grounds and listened to 3 hours of Grace Among Thieves.

Tuesday: Finished Grace Among Thieves.

Read about 10% more of In the Barren Grounds and finished GAT with 5 hours (on a faster speed).

Starting  The Accidental Scott audiobook.

Wednesday: Not a lot of reading done yesterday. 🙁

Read about 20% more of In the Barren Grounds and started The Accidental Scot on audio listening to about an hour.

Thursday: Not too bad of a day today.

Finished In the Barren Grounds so now I have two official books done! 🙂 Now finishing a book I was already in the middle of at it starts at about 42% so hoping to finish it. Only listened to a couple hours of The Accidental Scot.

Friday: Okay so I didn’t read much yesterday. I was catching up on some TV shows…lol.

Still reading Tea with Milk and Murder and should finish it today…no I will finish it today….lol. I have about six hours of The Accidental Scot to get through so not sure if that will happen today or not.

Saturday: I am excited I got more read for this than I thought I would 🙂

Finished The Accidental Scot and Tea with Milk and Murder!!

Working on Beyond Dead and The Boat Man but I know I won’t get them finished.

Sunday: Overall I am proud of what I read this week with school starting. I wasn’t sure how things would go. I am sure it was mainly because this week wasn’t full of assignments like it will be probably from now on…lol.

I finished 4 books and listened to half of The Boat Man and read about 10% of Beyond Dead so not bad. 🙂 Books read are posted above.

Any challenges I might do will go here:

Day One:

Favorite book to movie adaptation:


This version of Jane Austen’s Persuasion is my favorite!

Least Favorite:


Just changed to many things that I liked from the book.

Day Four Challenge:

    I have a feeling you are going to be very busy trying to post until you settle into your classes, Stormi. I hope your first day went well:)

      Yeah, even though I only have classes on Mon. and Wed. I found out in my computer class that I need Word 16 and I have 13 so now I will have to do my homework at the school…so err that will take up some of my time too.

      I have blogged ahead a good amount of reviews so I am hoping that will help. 🙂

    Hope you had a great first day. You will get the hang of it in no time. I didn’t like the Inkheart movie either but can say I’ve never read the book so I have nothing to compare it to. Hope you have a wonderful week.

      Lets see had a pretest in English so she can know where we are so hopefully she doesn’t kick me out for not knowing much…lol. I mean I am in that class to figure out my bad grammar for a reason…lol. Then I swear everything that could go wrong with logging in on the computer in my other class happens and I felt real dumb, but other than that it went well…just first day hiccups…lol

    You did awesome! I always love it when I actually meet my goals or read more than I thought I would, which is how it went for me this Bout of Books. The RAT also jump-started my reading, which I’m quite happy about.
