Bout of Books 27 (January 2020) – Final Summary

January’s Bout of Books is over, and I enjoyed the final day of reading. I finished The Starless Sea. I didn’t want the book to end, it was a very good read. I’m still reading Poirot, and I’m already glancing at my TBR pile to decide what I’m going to read next.

Number of pages I’ve read today:  120

Total number of pages I’ve read:  500

I set general read-a-thon goals (Original goals posted HERE).

I’ve updated my blog (mostly) daily with progress, and managed to resist adding too many new books to my TBR list whilst visiting other blogs throughout the week.

I completed The Starless Sea, and read some Poirot.

Thank you to everyone who visited and commented on my blog during the event. I hope everyone had a great week of reading.

The Week’s Progress Revisited…

Monday

It’s read-a-thon time! There are two books I’d like to read during this week. I don’t know whether I’ll finish both of them, but I’m hoping I might manage one. The first is Hercule Poirot’s Christmas. I haven’t read any Christie for a while and it seemed a good pick for this time of year. The second book, and one I’ve been looking forward to for a while now, is The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern.
Let’s see how I get on…

Tuesday (Monday’s Progress)

Bout of Books is off to a good start, I think I’ve picked a good one with The Starless Sea. The cover of the book is lovely, and the story within is so far totally intriguing. I think it’s a book I’m going to want to take my time with, so I don’t know how much I’ll have read by the end of the week, but then it’s so good that I don’t want to put it down either!

Number of pages I’ve read today:  100
Total number of pages I’ve read:  100

Wednesday (Tuesday’s progress)

Still really enjoying The Starless Sea. I haven’t read quite as much today, but it’s still a great read.

Number of pages I’ve read today:  25
Total number of pages I’ve read:  125

Thursday (Wednesday’s progress)

I don’t want to put The Starless Sea down. I love the mix of stories and can’t wait to see when and how they all come together. I still don’t want to read this book too quickly so I gave some of my reading time today to Hercule Poirot’s Christmas. I do try to work out whodunit in these novels but I’ve very rarely been right, and so far with this one I have no idea. Well, I have a few potentials but can’t narrow it down beyond that!

Number of pages I’ve read today:  135
Total number of pages I’ve read:  260

Friday (Thursday’s progress)

I read more of The Starless Sea and I wonder now whether I will actually finish it before Bout of Books ends. I’ve been reading quite slowly but I still ended up reading 80 pages, and have passed the halfway point with the book now. It’s all starting to come together and I wonder how it’s going to end…

Number of pages I’ve read today:  80
Total number of pages I’ve read:  340

Saturday (Friday’s progress)

Oops! No progress to report today.
