BOB 20 Recap: Day Five (…and Three…and Four)

Oh, this week…. So life decided to do this to me the past couple of days.

Everything’s good, just lost time, which is needed for a Readathon. I’m going to have to drop Reincarnation Blues off this week’s TBR. I’m working just to complete The Book Thief and Serena, I definitely should get one done, as long as life decides to behave…

Life, I’m watching you…

Now let’s catch up with some challenges!

 

Day Three Challenge: Book Spine Rainbow

“Take a selection of your favorite book spines to make a rainbow!”

I went with Murakami:

murakami

Day Four: If you like this, try that . . .

“Put your recommendations hat on, #boutofbooks-ers. For this challenge, pick a book, author, or trope (or whatever!) from your TBR and suggest similar books.”

Right now I’m in the middle of reading The Book Thief, which is set in WWII Germany. There’s a boat load of WWII books, and could easily be its own genre. Below are some recommendations for WWII books, some that I have read and love, and three that I want to read in the near future.  

 

I’ve Read:

Maus I/II – Art Spiegelman

All the Light We Can See – Anthony Doerr

Slaughterhouse Five – Kurt Vonnegut

 

On My TBR:

The Diary of Anne Frank

In the Garden of Beasts – Erik Larson

The Nightingale – Kristin Hannah

 

Day Five: Leave a book review

“Did you know? Book reviews help other readers discover new books. For today’s challenge, we encourage you to write a review of a book you’ve read during the readathon (or recently) and publish it where other readers make their purchasing decisions (e.g., Amazon, Goodreads, etc.).”

I was already planning on doing this with the books I completed this week. So you’ll just have to wait till Monday!

 

Progress:

  1. Red Rising: 382 pgs (DNF @ 120 pgs)
  2. They Rest of Us Just Live Here: 200 pgs (Finish 22nd)
  3. Serena: 120/371 pgs
  4. The Book Thief: 240/550 pgs

Total: 680/1,241
