Bout of Books 14 – Day 3

So today’s challenge is hosted by Rocky Top Real Talk, and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, so I’m excited!! I’m trying to get it into video form as well…so hoping I can figure that out before the challenge day is over (meh, not this time…maybe I’ll do it again, in the future, some time). The challenge is to do…. BOOK MASH!! They left it pretty open ended so that you can choose what categories you want and all that. Actually, looking back at the challenge description, it’s just general mash…but I’m totally doing it bookish-ly. 😛

Here’s what I am putting:

1 Hogwarts
3 Paris
4 Narania

1 Levi
2 Harry Potter
3 Peter K
4 Edward

1 Broomstick
2 Hovercraft
3 Limo
4 Public


1 Anya
2 Pygmypuff
3 Watch
4 a fluffy kitten

1 Cath
2 Margot
3 Sloane
4 Voldemort

1 Author
2 Own a Bookshop
3 Hogwarts Teacher
4 Ice Cream Shop

And here’s the outcome of my life!

I live in a [House] at [Hogwarts] with my husband, [Peter K], and our [1] child and [pygmypuff]. I drive a [hovercraft] to my job at the [ice cream shop], and my best friend is [Voldemort]. I love my life!!



Bout of Books 14 – ANNOUNCEMENT

Heeeey! Doin Bout of Books again!! And it’s kinda crazy…this will be my FOURTH go ’round. I always forget that there aren’t any actual book challenges, and I’m always like…”Um…what am I gonna read then??” Haha. I’ll be figuring it out soon, and do a TBR video. (*AND Sweet!! I got a super easy number to remember this time, I’m number 222!)

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
