Bout of Books 8.0 - Monday Update!

So, Bout of Books 8.0 is under way and the first thing I did... was leave the house! It was grocery shopping day and no avoiding it but I did come home with a book, with a very gorgeous exclusive to Tesco cover, Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor. Completely against the rules of Operation TBR, especially as I own the hardback version already but hey, it's pretty!

I did get stuck into a book when I got home, though not one on my list! I've started and finished Debutantes by Cora Harrison - Downton Abbey-like YA, good but not amazing - and started Jewel of Atlantis by Gena Showalter (also not on my list, somehow I get the feeling I'll be reading nothing from that!)


Number of pages I've read today: 400
Number of books read today: 1
Total number of books I've read: 1

Books: Debutantes - Cora Harrison

  1. not bad for a first day don't worry and i never make a specific list because i always pick something else so i only decided some genre not title

    1. I make a list every time and never stick to it! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. It sounds like you had a good first day. I think your summary for Debutantes sums up the book perfectly. Hope today is going well for you.

  3. You had a great first day! I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up going off pile this week - I gather up a great big pile of books to read from then ignore it! I've heard that Jewel of Atlantis is a great read, so I hope you're enjoying it!
