Here it is! The blurb and cover for book 1 in my upcoming zombie apocalypse series. Curious how this story started out? I walked into a stairwell one day and stopped dead in my tracks. I knew as soon as I stepped into it that it was going to be the…

Bout of Books Day 7 update and wrap-up:

Number of books I’ve read today: 1
Total number of books I’ve read: 11
Books read: Hope(less)
Today #insixwords: Wait. What? It's over? * looks around *
Things I learned on Twitter: I shared a pic of my niece eating the #boutofbooks tagline - https://twitter.com/soulswallo/status/468188847038144514 . Which made me laugh like mad. Then I made her dust my bookshelves. Because that's what good aunts do, RIGHT?
Final Tally: One werewolf who has a lot of patience for the girl of his dreams.

So. Wrap-up. A lot happened this Bout of Books. I read. I wrote. I tweeted. I went radio silent toward the end of this week because I was TIRED.

But did I hit my goals? That's a resounding YES!

I wanted to read 5 books. I read 11. I planned on reading 2 review requests (I read 4), 1 Seriously Series reread (I read 2), and any other 2 that caught my fancy (I humped Meljean Brook's Iron Seas series HARD for this one -- 3 installments of the Kraken King and a novella) (and just so the numbers add up, Amanda and I read a GLA book. Because erotica.)

Goal #2 was to use Google+ for my updates. DID IT. I don't know that I'll use it again in the future because I do kinda like having one master post I simply add my day's totals to, but I committed to G+ for BoB 10 and I did it.

Goal #3 was to HAVE FUN! NAILED THAT ONE! Honestly, I adore putting on this readathon with Amanda, but I had a lot on my plate this week. Hence, the hiding toward the end of the week.

As always, thank you to everyone who commented and cheered, read and chatted! I had a great time and I hope y'all did, too!

Make sure you're following the Bout of Books blog - http://boutofbooks.blogspot.com/ - so you know when the next Bout of Books rolls around (and also so you know when the mid-break chat is being held).

Today #insixwords: I don't know where today went.
Things I learned on Twitter: I had to work today (which is why I abandoned Amanda during the Twitter chat) and wasn't online much AT ALL. Great for reading, not so good for coming up with fun things that happened on Twitter.
