Bout of Books Read-a-thon Friday Update and Challenges for Saturday

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

To see my goals and what books I'm choosing from, read Monday's update.


I must say that I am so happy for easier challenges today. I don't have time for anything time consuming.

The first challenge is the Bookish Wishes Challenge, hosted by Kelsey's Cluttered Bookshelf.

Question 1: If you could be like any character from a fictional book, who would it be? What do you like about them? Tell me why!

I think I might like to be Katsa. She is fearless, smart, gorgeous, strong, a fighter, and she has Po's complete heart. I just like her all around too even though she has some insecurities and I think she should marry Po. :)

The second challenge is the Acrostic Book Poem Challenge, hosted by I Read, Ergo I Write. I wasn't going to do this one at first when I saw it was a poem, but I picked my book and whipped up a poem really quick (not good or anything - this took me about three minutes), so I thought I would anyway. I didn't do a fancy image, like she did (takes too much time). Anyway, here you go:

Maddening. That is how I feel. He is
All I have left to fight for;
To live for, from one breath to another.
Cherished, is also how I feel.
How can he give up so much and love me when
Everything is against us being together?
Does the road ahead have to be impossible and appear to go on forever?
