Bout of Books #13: Challenges


I'll be doing Bout of Books differently this time around. This will be where I'll be posting challenges each day so you can check back here and see what challenges I'm doing if you like. I will also have a separate post for my book progress. These two posts will be up all week. I'll be adding reviews once Bout of Books is over.


Bookish Survey

Hosted over @ Writing My Own Fairy Tale

1) How do you organize your bookshelves?

I have two bookshelves and some shelves that circle around half my room. On those shelves I mostly books I have yet to read. I just put the extra books I couldn't fit in my bookshelves there.

On my smaller bookshelf I have most of my favorite books including a whole shelf for all of my Rick Riordan books. 

On my larger shelf I have an array of books that might not be as special to me as the ones on my smaller bookshelf. Although, I do have newer books on there and some other favorite series of mine including the Grimm Sisters and the Series of Unfortunate Events. All my organization for my books has to do with how much space I have on them mostly.

2) What is one of your favorite books that is not in one of your favorite genres?

I'm pretty typical in that all my favorite books are in my favorite genres. I pretty much love every genre of books except maybe horror and steampunk. I have thriller/suspense, contemporary, fantasy, mystery, and sci-fi favorites. 

3) What is the last 5 star book you read?

Well, I listened to my last 5 star read which was Wild Born. It was a fantastic start to a children's adventure series. The last 5 star book I read was All the Bright Places. A must read for everyone.

4) What books are you most excited to read about during the read-a-thon?

I'm most excited to read Enchanted and Liesl & Po. I love retellings and I love Lauren Oliver's books so these two have the best chance to be my favorite reads this week.

5) What book do you recommend the most?

I always recommend A Little Wanting Song. If you love YA music reads, you'll love A Little Wanting Song.


Character Face Off

Hosted @ Lulo Fangirl

Opponent #1: D.J. Schwenk
– WHO: Farm girl who plays football
– CONS: somewhat cocky when out on the field, too introverted
– PROS: tough, true to herself, doesn't let a boy make her feel less
Opponent #2: Charlie Duskin
– WHO: shy girl who loves singing
– CONS: too introverted, doesn't stand up for herself
– PROS: snarky, killer songwriter
Winner: D.J. Schwenk
Why: D.J. is a character I look up to. She takes a risk and does something she loves to do no matter what anyone else says. She also doesn't let a boy dictate her happiness. She doesn't pine for a boy who doesn't treat her with respect. She's strong and has a great work ethic. She has all the qualities I want to have.

    1. I'm not as organized as other s though. I'm not the alphabetical or color coded type, but this works for me.

  2. I have multiple bookcases for different books too!

    I want to read Liesl and Po too! I don't think I have ever read anything the author- but I have heard great things about her writing. Wishing you the best of luck with your challenge! Happy reading!

  3. I'm not too organized either, I like to keep series together and that is about it. I kind of wish I could do the color rainbow thing but 80% of my spines are black, which wouldn't be that fun unless I was going for a black hole sort of look xD I've heard so many great things about All the Bright Places, I'm glad you liked it too!
