Bout of Books


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


Reading List

  • Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  • The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman
  • Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
  • The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
  • Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer





I read/listened to Luckiest Girl Alive and per kindle I’ve read 52%. So far I’m liking the book and plan to continue it on Tuesday. Also, the cover claims to compare it to Gone Girl but so far think it is more along the lines of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult.


Read another 40% of Luckiest Girl Alive. I hope to finish it on Wednesday. I’m finding it difficult not to make comparisons to Columbine due to the subject matter.
