[Miscellaneous] – Bout Of Books 14 – Recap

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.


What’s Miscellaneous Today?
Bout of Books 14 – Recap

So close to achieving my willy nilly goal…

What’s Bout of Books?

Read an introduction here.


While it is unfortunate that I wasn’t able to tackle my reading goals in Kurtagich’s The Dead House and LaMarche’s Don’t Fail Me Now, I still managed to finish a book in the week on track to read 4 ARCs this month for #ARCAugustThat being said, I’m so stoked that I chose to read TDH instead of The Scorpion Rules (well, actually, I’ll confirm this statement after I finish reading this book instead) because TDH stood as one of the better debuts I’ve read this year! Hype hype hype hype hype.


Una LaMarche’s “Don’t Fail Me Now – # of pages: 127/288

Dawn Kurtagich’s “The Dead House – # of pages: 400/400

Shokugeki no Soma – # of pages: 21 (Chapter 131)

Saki – # of pages: 45 (Chapters 144-146)

Challenge Posts:

I was only able to participate in the opening twitter chat and two of the earlier challenges:

Book Scavenger Hunt – Where my central theme for all the pictures taken were the colour “blue” influenced.


MASH (click to learn more about this childhood game) – …my results were as follows:

I’m an [Awkward] [Teacher at a fantastical school with all the knowledge but only speaks in riddles] who lives in [1844 Edinburgh] with [Camryn Bennett] and our [septuplet children]. When I’m not teaching, I travel around in my haunted [1958 Plymouth named Christine] with my bud [Christian Grey], mentor [Big Brother], and my [Pet Rock] hoping to not run into my sworn enemy, [Queen Levana].

BoutOfBooks14 - MASH Game


I’d still consider this round of Bout a success since I haven’t actively participated in the twitter chat or challenge posts until this time around. What it really came down to is my attention span for contemporary reads; which is blergiahduashdah. That is all.

Until the next Bout or reading challenge–wait…#ARCAugust is still ongoing ahhhhhhh.

How did you do on your goals if you participated?

  1. You did great. And you made me even more excited about reading The Dead House, because if you enjoyed it, it must be worth reading.
