Bout of Books (16) Wrap Up!

Bout of Books 

Oh man, unfortunately I wasn't able to complete any books for this round of "Bout of Books" due to this week being very busy for me and therefore, not leaving me much time to read like I wanted to.  But, at least I was able to read up to 100 pages in a book for the read-a-thon, which in itself was an accomplishment.

So, here's a rundown of what I've been doing for this read-a-thon:

Day 3 (Wednesday, May 11, 2016):  5 Favorites

 Everybody loves sharing favorites and now we're giving you free rein to do just that. Pick the topic of your choice and share your 5 favorite books that fit. Topics could be a favorite genre, a favorite trope, book boyfriends, or ANYTHING. There's no limit to where you can take this!

For this challenge, I'll do my top 5 Favorite book boyfriends!

1. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout:  I just loved Daemon Black!  He's such an intense yet interesting bad boy and I just can't get enough of him!
2. It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas: Marcus, Lord Westcliff is just an awesome hero and I really loved his back to back snarky dialogue with Lillian!
3.  Kiss An Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips: Alex Markov is honestly one of my most favorite Russian heroes in romance ever!

4. Easy by Tammara Webber: Lucas Maxfield is seriously one book boyfriend I would love to have as he is willing to protect anyone in trouble!
5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: Augustus Waters is seriously one of the most inspirational book boyfriends I would love to have!

Day 6 (Saturday, May 14, 2016):  Share your favorite Bout of Books moment

With the read-a-thon starting to wind down, we want to see some of your favorite moments. These could be from past BoBs or the present one. Did you connect with someone who would later become your BFF and partner in crime? Did a favorite author retweet you? Were you recommended a book that changed your life? TELL US ABOUT IT!

Probably my favorite moment from the Bout of Books was being able to complete a book during the challenge just this year with "Scarlet" by A.C. Gaughen!  This was the first time that I had ever completed a book during a reading challenge and that was a huge accomplishment for me!
