Bout of Books is starting tomorrow and AHHH I’m so excited for this readathon!!! I’ve been dying for another Bout of Books, and the timing is perfect because I’m trying desperately to catch up on my 2018 reading goal (4 books behind, sob). LET’S DO THIS *cracks knuckles*


  • Finish current read (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) 
  • Attempt to finish Empress of All Seasons or DNF 
  • Read 3-4 more books OR 1,500 pages total 
  • Read a little bit every day 
  • Limit time spent on social media 

Books I want to read

Daily Progress

I’ll keep this section updated every day throughout the week!


Today’s goals:

  • Finish To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (on page 142/355) 
  • Start Inferno 

Currently reading: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Inferno, This Mortal Coil

Pages read today: 688
Time spent reading today: 7 hours
Books completed today: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Inferno

Today’s notes: I had today off, so I kicked some ass!


Today’s goals:

  • Make it halfway through This Mortal Coil (on page 78/415) 

Currently reading: This Mortal Coil

Pages read today: 337
Time spent reading today: 4 hours, 15 minutes
Books completed today: This Mortal Coil

Today’s notes: I didn’t expect to actually finish TMC, but I couldn’t put it down!


Today’s goals:

  • Read 100 pages of Gameboard of the Gods 

Currently reading: Gameboard of the Gods

Pages read today: 106
Time spent reading today: 1 hour
Books completed today: n/a

Today’s notes: I ended up getting a migraine so I didn’t get as much reading in as I wanted. I also am not enjoying Gameboard very much, so the 100 pages I did read were a major struggle. I think I may have to DNF :(


Today’s goals:

  • Read for at least an hour 

Currently reading: Gameboard of the Gods, Saga vol. 8, This Splintered Silence
Currently listening to: Children of Blood and Bone

Pages read today: 351
Time spent reading today: 2 hours, 15 minutes
Time spent listening today: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Books completed today: Gameboard of the Gods (DNF), Saga vol. 8

Today’s notes: I couldn’t bring myself to pick Gameboard back up, so I decided to DNF :(


Today’s goals:

  • Make it to 75% of This Splintered Silence (currently at 43%) 

Currently reading: This Splintered Silence, Last Star Burning

Pages read today: 209
Time spent reading today: 2 hours
Books completed today: This Splintered Silence


Today’s goals:

  • Read at least 100 pages 

Currently reading: Last Star Burning (lost interest/wasn’t in the mood), The Rule of One (wasn’t in the mood), One Past Midnight

Pages read today: 379
Time spent reading today: 4 hours
Books completed today: One Past Midnight

Today’s notes: I’m feeling rather slumpy today. I picked up both The Last Star Burning and Rule of One and couldn’t get into either of them. I think it’s just a mood thing right now, though…


Today’s goals:

  • Finish one more book 

Currently reading: Rule by Ellen Goodlett, Empress of All Seasons

Pages read today: 451
Time spent reading today: 4 hours, 45 minutes
Books completed today: Rule

Today’s notes: I had wanted to DNF or finish Empress, but I’m still stuck somewhere in between. It’s finally picking up at past 40%, but I’m not in the mood to read it. I think I do want to try again, just not right now!

Weekly progress summary

Total # pages read: 2,521 (that’s more than I normally read in a whole month!!)
Total time spent reading: 26 hours, 35 minutes
Books I completed: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Inferno, This Mortal Coil, Gameboard of the Gods (DNF), Saga vol. 8, This Splintered Silence, One Past Midnight, Rule
