Day 5 : Bout of Books 8.0 Read-a-thon Update

Wow, Good Morning guys ! I have a very good reading day on Day 5 of #boutofbooks. I hope you guys are also having a great reading day too 🙂

Although I finished Mockingjay, I didn’t start any book today. Mockingjay is a great book to read, but honestly, I think Catching Fire is a little more exciting to read. In Day 6 and Day 7, I’m target to finish 2 books which are The Archived by Victoria Schwab and The Humans by Matt Haig.


Day 4 : Bout of Books 8.0 Read-a-thon Update

It’s already Day 4, I think I’m a little bit behind schedule. But you know what, I’m going to read as many as I can in the reminding three days of #boutofbooks 😀

I’m still reading Mockingjay in Day 3. I quite enjoy this book 3 of the Hunger Games Series but I would say that Catching Fire is better than Mockingjay. These two have a different theme though. Hopefully I will finish Mockingjay in Day 5 and start The Humans by Matt Haig, I’ve waited to read that so so long !!

Day 3 : Bout of Books 8.0 Read-a-thon Update

Bout of Books

Day 3 was not a good reading day. Still I manage to finish one book ( although it’s a short one :P).

I finished The Pearl by John Steinbeck in Day 3. There is a bit different from my first impression on this book. I thought this is a story about a man turn into devil because he became rich after he found the Pearl of the World, turn out it is not. But it is a great tale to read, it reflects some hiding nature of man in the story. The ending of the story is tragic. 

Bout Of Books 8.0: Book Spine Poetry Challenge

Day 2 : Bout of Books 8.0 Read-a-thon Update

Bout of Books

Time is flying by Bout of Books read-a-thon, day 2 has ended. I didn’t read as much as I did in day one. But I did finished my first book in #boutofbooks and started two more books. I’m going to jump right into it 😀

I finished Catching Fire in Day 2. It is a phenomenal book, so exciting to read and a huge page turner. After I finished it, I start the third book in the series which is Mockingjay straight away. It is hard to suppress my curiosity to know what happen after the end of book 2. Also, at the end of the day, I started The Pearl by John Steinbeck. It is a short novel, only 91 pages in total. I love reading short novels, they are so quick to read but usually carry a huge behind meaning with it. So, really looking forward to finish this in day 3.
