Bout of Books 11.0 Wrap Up

I was really excited about this particular bout of books because it actually fell during my summer holidays, my time off school but it turns out that actually I might have had some more reading time if I'd been at work and reading in the evenings when I got in. It turned out to be a very social week and some of my driving time wasn't actually used for audiobooks as I had planned. Nevertheless I think I've done a pretty good job this week reading wise. 

I read 140 pages of Poular: A Memoir at the start of the week, getting me off to a good start...

The first book I read to completion this week was The Dead Wife's Handbook by Hannah Beckermen, adding 477 pages to my total, making it 617.

The second book I read completely was actually an audiobook, One Night in Italy by Lucy Diamond, at 400 pages this brings my total to 1017 pages. 

I had an excellent reading day on day 6 completing these two books and reading ALL of Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins, at 372 pages, this brings my total to 1389.

The fourth book I read completely this week was another audiobook. I do have this one in ebook form and I also have a proof copy but I really wanted to read it and so I thought audiobook would be the best form to enjoy this book in. I started this on day 5 and finished it on day 7. At 310 pages, this brings my total to 1699.

On day 7 I read Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. This marks my fifth complete book of the week and at 338 pages, brings my total up to 2037 pages! 

Finally, I had 20 minutes left of the Bout of Books and so I read 22 pages of Of Things Gone Astray by Jania Matthewson. I am on the blog tour for this book which is released on Thursday and so I thought my final 20 mins would be well-spent by reading the start of this one. Look out for some exclusive content from the author on Friday after this book is released. 

So my grand total for the week was 2059 pages! I'm very impressed with this and it definitely beats my last Bout of books total. I read 5 complete books, finished another book and started another book. I think this is pretty cool, it means lots of reviews for me to write, so look out for those soon, I don't mind getting those done as I really enjoyed everything I read!

So how did you get on? What have you enjoyed reading? Did you enjoy Bout of Books? I've had a ball and can't wait for the next one!
