I didn't read any new books for this challenge this week, but I finally started my trilogy! I had a 16-hour drive from New Mexico to California mid-week, so I started The Fellowship on the Ring on an audiobook, and I'm planning on finishing the entire trilogy on my Kindle.
PREVIOUS POINTS: 145
TOTAL POINTS: 145

Please update me on your progress in a comment on this post. I usually don't write the scoreboard post until Saturday, so as long as you check in by Friday I should have your most up-to-date score on the board. If you forget to check in one week, no worries! Just catch yourself up on the next week's check-in. If you just joined the challenge, welcome! Please feel free to include all books you've read since May 1 that were at least 200 pages long. You can review the full list of rules here. Good luck!

Finished "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell." Thank God. That book was awful. 25 points for a book I've heard bad things about. (And I can confirm them!)

This week I'm starting "Uglies" with a hope to finish either the trilogy or antonyms categories. The next book is called "Pretties," followed by "Extras."

Previous Points: 75

Oh :( Don't you hate having to trudge through something you don't enjoy? Funnily enough, the book that I heard bad things about wound up being one of my favorites and it's one of my hubby's worst of all time! LOL

Amy said...

I finally finished The Devil Wears Prada, a book I've always wanted to read.

Current points: 50

I'm slacking hardcore. I'm going to blame work on this one.

I had to wait until the library got in a copy of 50 Shades Freed, but I finally did! I just started reading it, so sadly I still don't have any points. Hopefully by next Sunday I'll have some points from this trilogy category.

This week I read "Dead is So Last Year" by Marlene Perez (208 pages) in one calendar day, and "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" by Mindy Kaling (219 pages) for my memoir.

no change, 30 points and 2/3 through my trilogy

I keep forgetting to update my progress! I completed The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran, which is set in Egypt. Technically Ancient Egypt, which is impossible to visit, but I would like to go check out all that history, so I think it counts. Am working on my trilogy (The Graceling Trilogy) so no new points there yet. Have read a lot of books that would count if I hadn't already read them. Ah well.

Some actually progress this week! I read The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne for the book that I have always wanted to read and A Surrey State of Affairs by Ceri Radford that takes place in England for the book that takes place somewhere that I want to visit.

Previous Points: 20
Current Points:55

Last week I read one book in a calendar day. The day was even shorter than usual, as I was traveling backwards through timezones so I only had 23 hours, but it did it and read "Blessed are the Cheesemakers" by Sarah-Kate Lynch (320 pages). It's a quirky book where cows are milked to the sound of The Sound of Music, the cheesemaker can read minds, and the cheese has its own character! ;-)
In other news, I'm 2/3 into the trilogy, so I hope I'll finish it next week.
