Challenges: Bout of Books 31 Wrap-Up

Hello all! I didn’t make a dedicated post about it but last week was the 31st iteration of the Bout of Books readathon!

I had other things going on this week (cleaning the house, sunny adventures, a job interview!) but still got a few good days of reading in, and I was happy to chip away at a couple current reads. Here are my stats for the week!

Spines Speak: Bookish Week and Blogiversary Qs

I was planning to post a recap of the readathon I was participating in this weekend but then I didn’t read a single page.

But it was still a very bookish week with another Frenzy Presents preview last Tuesday (recap coming soon!), World Book Day, Shakespeare’s birthday, and Independent Bookstore Day that has thankfully introduced me to many new bookstores I’ll add to my visit list!

A sneak peek at some upcoming titles!

Last Year I Was Reading:

This is technically a Thursday meme (for Throwback Thursday) but it still works today!

I’ve been feeling a little uninspired in coming up with blog posts so I looked up some bookish memes and found this one I’m really intrigued by. I do love memes because it not only takes some of the work out of writing posts by providing a topic, but they’re fun to participate in and a great chance to meet other bloggers!

Last Year I Was Reading is hosted by Maria @ ReadingMaria. Every Thursday (or whichever day you choose), take your current read and compare it to what you were reading this exact time last year. Maria offers some questions for discussion:

  • Which one do you like better?
  • What is different about the books?
  • Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to?
