Another Bout of Books has come to an end. I extended it out for an extra day, hanging out in the tent for one last night, but now the tent is on its way down until the next read-a-thon. It's a little bit of a sad day.
Darian returned home Sunday night and managed to get himself a little more reading in before the read-a-thon came to a close.

His participation in Bout of Books, though minimal, got him away from his tablet for a little while, so I'm calling it a success.
This book is really weird, but totally awesome. I'm speeding through it.
I managed to meet the majority of my goals and I'm pretty stoked with my progress. I skipped out on the mini-challenges this time simply because I wasn't really feeling it and preferred spending my time with my nose in a book, but some of them were pretty creative and I enjoyed seeing other people's involvement. I still have quite a bit of blog reading to get caught up on, so I'm looking forward to hearing about even more great books and Bout of Books experiences.
1. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon: 5 stars
2. The Color of our Sky by Amita Trasi: 3 1/2 stars
3. Things Unsaid by Diana Y. Paul: 2 stars
I completed three ARCs during Bout of Books and am a good portion through the fourth. With three more books out of the TBR and in the "read" pile for this year, I'm calling this one a total win. Bout of Books never disappoints!
If you didn't participate this time, but want to get in on the action, the next Bout of Books is scheduled for January 4th - January 10th of next year. It's a long time to wait, but there will be other read-a-thons in the meantime. Next up:
