Bout of Books 10.0: Day 1 (Monday, May 12)

Today I got quite a bit of reading done.  I was in a slump during the morning hours; I was reading a book that I did not really enjoy.  I picked up on my reading later in the day though.

Reading Completed:

I ended up reading 245 pages today (45 pages over my goal per day).  This included:
  • Starting and Finishing Second Chances 101 by Donna K. Weaver (144 pages)
  • Finishing Chosen by Ted Dekker (pages 230-260; 30 pages)
  • Starting Unusual Awakening by S.M. Knowles (40%; 71 pages)
I really enjoyed Second Chances 101.  This is the 5th book in a romance novella series called The Ripple Effect Romance Novella series.  I am reading this novella series as part of a blog tour.  My review for this book will be posted on Friday.

I also really enjoyed the ending of Chosen by Ted Dekker.  This is a re-read, but it has been over 5 years since I first read this series.  A review for this book will be coming in the upcoming weeks.

I am not enjoying Unusual Awakening by S.M. Knowles.  This is the first book in the Rylee Everley series.  I am reviewing this as part of a blog tour and my review will be up Thursday.

Other Bout of Books News:

I also participated in a Twitter chat today and the challenge, "If you like X, try Y".  Here are some of my blurbs from the twitter chat:

I also participated in a second challenge through twitter where I showed a picture of my book buddy.  Here it is:
