Readathon: Bout of Books 23: Stretch them Goals


Stretch Goal

It's the last day of the readathon, so today's challenge is to take a look at the goals you set for the week (if you have them) and decide a) how you can stretch yourself to complete them or b) how you can revise them so you can meet them. Because yes, you can revise your goals! If you didn't set goals for the week, set a small one for yourself today!

I didn't really set goals for myself other than having 7 books to read this week. I'm proud to say that I have almost reached that goal. I have about a book and a half to finish so hopefully, I can do it.


Instagram Challenge: Series Love
I know it's not a series, but it's an author I adore.

Readathon: Bout of Books 23: Books Discovered

Discover Books

Bout of Books is known to add to your TBR instead of reducing it. Embrace it by sharing the books you've discovered through Bout of Books.

Thanks to Erica (@2020hines_sight) for today's challenge.


Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
A graphic novel I have seen around a bunch and it just looks really cute.

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
I actually have this one on my shelf, and I just need to read it because it sounds magical. Oh, and that cover!

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
Another one on my shelf that sounds like a good contemporary read.

Winger by Andrew Smith
I have yet to read an Andrew Smith book, but I have some on my shelf. A friend of mine loves his books. I need to try them out sometime.

Readathon: Bout of Books 23: Songs of the book



Bookish Playlist

What's a song that always reminds you of a certain book? Is it something the characters listen to? Do the lyrics remind you of the plot? Make a list of at least three songs and match them each with a book. Participants could explain their reasoning in greater depth in the form of a blog or twitter thread, show pictures of the books and caption with the song titles in an Instagram post, or even make a playlist on Spotify or YouTube and share it.

Thanks to Emma (@emmareadsthings) for today's challenge.


My playlist is going to be for A Court of Thorns and Roses
The first one is actually a song the artist was inspired by the book.

The others are songs I felt had a bit of connection and I thought about the books when I heard them.

Turn to you by Christina Aguilera
Cold by Crossfade
Broken by Seether Feat. Amy Lee
Tangled up in you by Staind
Feels like tonight by Daughtry
Falling in by Lifehouse

Instagram Challenge: Book/Series I never finished

    Readathon: Bout of Books 23: Literary Bad Guys

    Literary Villain

    Who are your favorite literary bad guys? Can be a villain, a not-so-good-guy, or anti-hero.

    Thanks to Darcus (@darcusmurray) for today's challenge.

    There are not a lot of villains I really enjoy, but I'm going to go with Tamlin from the ACoTAR series. He's not as bad as the King, but he has his moments of villainous, and then he redeems himself. Then he goes back to being ehh. I honestly think he's just a broken person. I suppose I would be to with everything that happened to him. So he is a love to hate, hate to love kind of character.
