It’s the last day of Bout of Books 21. Look below for my update on yesterday’s read-a-thon progress.

If you don’t know what Bout of Books is, see my sign up post. That post also includes the books I’m hoping to read this week.

I was not expecting the ending of Renegades! But I loved it. I’ll probably reread it soon.

I joined the Twitter chat yesterday (see #boutofbooks on Twitter to read it) and had so much fun!! The hour (plus) went by so quickly. It was great to meet so many other readers and chat about books we like and things we’d like to see more of. I think the Twitter chats are my favourite parts of Bout of Books.

The Hating Game is hilarious. I’m very much enjoying reading it again. I’ve noticed a few issues in it this time around, but I still very much like the book. It does have a few tropes that aren’t my favourite (like mean guy is actually nice and is only mean because he likes you), but overall, it’s a fun read that you can whip through.

I also started listening to the audio of Anne Lamott’s Help Thanks Wow. It is very interesting and I think I’ll need to reread it again in print. There are a lot of lines I want to highlight.

How is your reading going?
