Books read today: Forgive and Forget by Patricia Scanlon
Books finished: 0
#insixwords Getting there very, very slowly!

The challenge over on Books devoured is to take a book title and rename it. Well, I am not that imaginative but I was browsing on goodreads and came across

Pulse (Chess Team Adventure, #1)  and decided to rename it: When Octopus met Dragon!

If you are a bout of books member, pop over to Books devoured and try for yourself.

Bout of books day 1 progress

Well, as expected, I did not get much chance to read today. Work was busy, my daughter had a function after school which we had to rush to. And of course my sister arrived with my baby nephew and we all landed up going to dinner. So, I am not really as far as I would have liked, but I had a great day so that is what counts!

#insixwords Not off to a good start
Since I will be away for the weekend, I will do a single post every day, makes it easier for my phone. Hope everyone is enjoying the readathon.

Bout of books readathon goals

This week is the 4th bout of books readathon and I have taken part in all 4! Despite reminding myself all day I forgot to do a goals post :-( must be old age creeping up. So, I am doing this from my phone and add links tomorrow.
I plan on reading the whole week, well at lEast a little bit each day. I do have to work though, should do some studying and will be away for the weekend for my nephews christening. ThEre is a 5 hour road trip to get there so should get some reading done then.
Books I will be reading:
- Forgive and forgEt by Patricia scanlon (on pg 122)
- The fires of heaven by RobErt Jordan (on pg 181)
- Circles in the forest by Dalene Matthee

I hope to finish those and start another, not sure what yet. My TBR pile has 20 books and my sister has a house full of James Patterson and a few other authors so I won't be stuck for choice!

Spring into horror wrap up post.

Oops, it is now a few days late for this post, but I really didn't get a chance to do this before now.
I did manage to finish one book, however didn't meet my goals. But, the important thing is I enjoyed the book that I did read.
