I finished Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine right before I went to bed. That means that I met my goal for Bout of Books! I finished both of the books I had been reading before New Year’s, and I finished a book from my TBR. I’m looking forward to Bout of Books 31 in May!

I’m well over halfway through Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. I also started and got caught up on The Year of Cozy by Adrianna Adarme. It goes month by month and my plan is to read each month as it comes. So, I won’t be reading any more of it during this last day of Bout of Books, but I am going to try to finish Ink and Bone.

I finished The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden and read a bit more of Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. Overall, though, I didn’t read much yesterday. Today is going to be a reading day, and I might start another book, but I’m not sure which one yet.

I missed posting yesterday thanks to the internet being out. I also didn’t finish The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden as I planned before picking up Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine again. I’m at 93%, though so it’s my goal to finish it before I go to bed tonight.

I didn’t The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden before starting Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine, but I did get to over 75%. I’m hoping to finish The Girl in the Tower today, before continuing with Ink and Bone. We’ll see; both books are exceptional so far.

I finished Around the World with Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis, and then read quite a bit of The Gir in the Tower by Katherine Arden. I wanted to read more, but I forced myself to be an adult and go to bed at a reasonable time. I will hopefully have nearly as much time to read today as I did yesterday.

This Bout of Books is going to be all about finishing the two books on my Current Reads list. I’m at least halfway through both of them, and I’m hoping to start off the week after Bout of Books with a fresh list.

My Goals

  • Read.  Read.  Read.
  • Finish my current reads.
  • Start a new book from my TBR.

Books to Read

  • The Girt in the Tower by Katherine Arden
  • Around the World with Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis
  • At least one book from my “TBR” bookshelf on Goodreads.

Updates

I will be posting an update each day with the amount of time I read, the number of pages read that day, and the titles of any of the books I’ve finished.

I finished The Seclusion by Jacqui Castle and This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. I then read a bit of A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel before I went to bed. Even though I have less than 100 pages of A History of Reading, I have quite a bit to do today, so I know I won’t finish it. I’m going to listen to another audiobook instead. I haven’t decided which one, though.

I read a little more of The Seclusion by Jacqui Castle, and then listened to a decent chunk of This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. I was hoping to finish the audiobook, but the Boyfriend surprised me with a new phone (mine was circling the drain), and I got distracted with setting it up.
