Bout of Books: Day Seven Tracking & Wrap-Up


And here we are, a week later, to reflect on the successes of Bout of Books 17! While I didn’t get a chance to achieve all of the goals I had originally intended to smash, I recognize the merits behind using this readathon to transition back into the swing of blogging regularly again. Truth be told, making blogging and recreational reading habits again were the main things I wanted to achieve through participating in Bout of Books this go around. It’s actually inspired me to participate in yet another readathon over Labor Day weekend! Maybe I’ll write a review this week? who knows *x-files theme plays* Overall, I’m extremely proud of the reading I did over the past week and averaged at just under 100 pages a day read. Were there some weaker days? Absolutely. But finishing a book as large as Goblet of Fire while also having to deal with a full-time job and social schedule is an accomplishment anyone should be proud of, and I won’t discount my accomplishments just because I didn’t finish all three of the books I intended to read.

So how did I do this week?

This Week’s Goals:

  • finish Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • finish The Scorpion Rules
  • finish Kiss, Kill, Love Him Still
  • other stretch goals that will be determined if I get there
