Bout of Books Day #5 | Progress and Challenge of the Day

Just like yesterday I managed to read a lot! Looks like I’m on a roll 😀 Tomorrow, however, I’ll be away for almost the whole day, so I don’t think I’ll get much reading done, but I’ll try! Progress Number of books I’ve read today: 1 (City of Ashes) Number of pages I’ve read today: 453 pages of City of Bones Total pages read: 938 Total books read: 2 Total number of books I’ve finished: 2 Challenge The Challenge of the Day is hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings. She asked to take a picture of four books with almost the same color. It’s the first time I did something like this, but it was a lot of fun picking the color and books. As you can see I picked blue 🙂 and these are the books I chose: The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis De Ijswoestijn […]

Play | Kylie Scott

Play | Kylie Scott

Na het lezen van Lick was ik helemaal gek op de wereld die Kylie Scott had geschapen met al haar hunks en leuke personages en wilde meer. Veel meer. Ik was dan ook zeer verheugd toen ik er achter kwam, dat dit het eerste boek in een serie was en ging meteen op zoek naar Play, het volgende deel. Dat bleek ook nog eens in de aanbieding te zijn op Amazon en natuurlijk aarzelde ik vervolgens geen moment: kopen die hap! Zo gezegd, zo gedaan en even later kon ik dan ook Play beginnen te lezen… Ik werd vervolgens blij verrast toen dit deel over Mal, de superleuke drummer, ging, die we al in het eerste boek hadden leren kennen (was namelijk zonder het lezen van de achterkant begonnen, zo graag wilde ik meer 😉 ).  In dit boek is hij nog grappiger en hilarischer dan in Lick. Wat er allemaal niet uit zijn mond komt… Dat […]

Bout of Books Day #4 | Progress and Challenge

Once again I failed to meet my goal yesterday. Today, however, it’s a holiday and I had nothing planned till the afternoon, so I could give it my all 😀 Chapter after chapter I read and I finished one book! I also came to the realization that I won’t be able to read all seven books as I planned. Even for a fast read like me that’s a bit tooooo much 😉 Progress Number of books I’ve read today: 1 (City of Bones) Number of pages I’ve read today: 326 pages of City of Bones Total pages read: 485 Total books read: 1 Total number of books I’ve finished: 1 Challenge The Challenge of the Day is hosted by Rebecca @ Ranty Runt of a Reader. She asked us to share a book, published after the first of January 2005, that will be a classic one day and provide two reasons why. I’ve […]

Bout of Books | Day #3 Progress and Challenge

Ha, I actually read yesterday. 99 pages to be exact. One page less than my goal, but it was the end of a chapter and I did not have the time to read that one too. So I’ll grant myself that one page 😉 Let’s see how I did today. Progress Number of books I’ve read today: 1 (City of Bones) Number of pages I’ve read today: 55 pages of City of Bones Total pages read: 154 Total books read: 1 Total number of books I’ve finished: 0 Challenge of the Day The Challenge of the Day is hosted by Kristina @ Kristina Horner. Her challenge was to create a Haiku about the book that you’re reading now. Since I’m still reading City of ones I came up with the following: A mother vanished. Thrown into another world. Clary, be brave. Only to realize after I put in my Haiku that the first sentence is […]
