I’m took part in the Bout of Books 21 Read-a-thon from Jan 8 to 14.
My goal for Bout of Books 21 was to read and review 3 books.
I managed only two.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 8 and runs through Sunday, January 14 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 21 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Book Spine Poetry
Stack books so that the book titles make a sentence or a short poem. Funny, serious; anything’s good! Take a photo and post it on your blog or tweet it with hashtag #bookspinepoetry #BoutofBooks
The day 7 challenge was to leave a review.
LOST!: A themed anthology 2017
It was a good anthology. There are a lot of stories featuring religion, grief, or friendship as major plot points. (I am one of the authors in this book.)
My favorites (in order of publication) :
Christmas Letter by Robin Currie — I like this for the raw honesty the character hangs on to in the end.
The Ambassador by Caroline Grace — This chilling story feels very plausible. Excellent read.
Sea Princess by Autumn Fenton — Excellent imagery. Very realistic.
Matilijas by C. Lee McKenzie — Very powerful and well-written.
Nan’s Spirit by J Lenni Dorner — I wrote it, so yes, I love it. Hopefully it makes people think.
Scattered Debris by Jaimi-Lynn Smith — Anyone have some extra tissues? Is there a cardiologist in the house? My heart needs to be sewn back together, please!
The Lucky Ones by Susan Van Sciver — Whoa. This is fantastic writing! I’m not sure how it didn’t win. I hope this author publishes a book, because I want to buy it.
