Bout of Books 12 | Day Six Wrap-Up

Day six! And I felt much better about today as my eyes definitely were feeling better and I was feeling more in the reading mood, which meant I got more reading done, of course.

Even though there was another chat this morning. Which was fun, as always. And, sadly, the last chat until the May read-a-thon. Now - onto the day in books and numbers.

Number of Books Completed Today: 2

Total Number of Books Completed: 8

Lock In by John Scalzi (finished - 160 pages)
The Way of Shadows (Night Angel #1) by Brent Weeks (finished - 457 pages)

Number of Pages Read: 617

Total Number of Pages Read: 2,310

I finished two 5 star books today! I have come to know I'm going to love Scalzi's work, even if I'm unsure at the very beginning - he'd normally captured me by the halfway point.

I'd never read anything by Brent Weeks before, though, and was a little unsure. His ratings on Goodreads are so impossibly high, I just wasn't sure what to expect. And holy shit I was not let down in anyway - fantastic read.

How did your Saturday go? And plans for the last day of the read-a-thon?

  1. Wow! You read a ton during the read-a-thon and it sounds like you really enjoyed what you read. I didn't read much today, finished about 1350 pages during the whole read-a-thon with one 5-star read.

    1. I try to scope out books in advance, knowing the ones I know I'll like, but there were some that weren't all they seemed - but of course these two were really fantastic.
      You did great as well! What was your one 5-star book?
