Bout of Books Update for Days 4 and 5

Hi guys,

I am writing to say that I didn’t read anything for yesterday.  My mother was rushed to the hospital yesterday and I was with her until around 12: 30 am in which I decide to go home.   When I left she seemed to be doing fine but at 3:30 she took a turn for the worse.  Her heart failed around 3:50am and she passed away.  I don’t know what my progress will be.  I find a lot of peace in reading so I plan to continue but I have a lot of people to contact and arrangements to be made.  Please know that this is something we were anticipating but just not this soon.  She went in her sleep and for that I am very thankful.   I just wanted everyone to know why I am may not finish boutofbooks.

Bout of Books 15 Day 4 Challenge/ Update Day 3


Ok here goes! Its day 4 and time for a new challenge.  This challenge is  hosted by Bingeing on Books. 

Here is the challenge for today:

  • Pick villains from two different books that you would love to see fight each other. It can be from any genre and it doesn’t even have to be a physical fight. It could be a verbal one as well.
  • Give a short reason why you think these villains should fight each other

You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge. You could tweet it or instagram it or even leave it in the comments. If you do tweet it, don’t forget to mention me (@bingeingonbooks) and use the hashtag #villainmashup.

My Villains:

Fairest: Levana’s Story (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5) Queen Levana vs President SnowThe Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
My Reasoning:
Both are leaders  and very wicked.  Both use treachery and deceit to keep control over their people.  I think in a battle they would team up at first and secretly plot to kill each other.  Snow would probably try killing her with poison and Levana would use some form of mind control.

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?

Dog ears definitely!

Bookstores. There’s alway online ordering.

Break up, there is always the possibility of them getting back together.

I like both but I will choose Twilight.

Alright everyone, I am back!  I have been hit over and over again with family and friend issues.  I am personally trying to make a change for the New Year.  That is including my blog and vlog. So, I plan to start the year off with a bang and what better way to do that then with a readathon! Let me tell you not only one readathon but two!!!!!!
