Bout of Books 7.0 Sign Up & Goals+ Wrap Up

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I am joining Bout of Books Read-A-Thon! This was supposed to be posted yesterday BUT blogger hates me. So. Here it is!

Books I want to read:

So basically, I have 6 books I want to read in 7 days. Can I do it? I have no idea. Luckily, the read-a-thon goes through Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Pages read: 247 (Moon Called)
Books Finished: none
Currently Reading: Moon Called. Boo, math homework! Not only was I busy at school today but I wasn't able to get a lot of reading done at home either! I still have loads of homework to finish and it's 10:44 PM.
Challenges Completed:

For Sharon and Racquel's challenge, we had to take a book we'd read and re-name it based on the book itself or the cover. I'm going with Magic Bites, the first book in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. It's one of my favorites but my title is long and kind of gives things away. Sorry but I couldn't help it! In Which Kate Meets Sexy Curran and the Series has Serious Sexy Times

 For Medusa's Library, we're supposed to either list a soundtrack for a book or a song that reminds us of a book! I am so cheating but I'm going to use Taylor Swift's 22 as the song for Fourth Comings, the 4th book in the Jessica Darling series! If you've read the books, don't you agree that "We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time/It's miserable and magical" describes the books perfectly?

# of Books Finished: 3 out of the 6: I promise you, all of my teachers came together and decided that they would assign a TON of work, class work, and projects this week. Yep. They really did. 
# of Pages Reads: 1,448: for me, that is a lot! I'm sure many have read more but for me, that's good enough! 
Will I Do This Again: Sadly, I won't be able to participate in Bout of Book 8.0 because it falls in during the first week of my freshman year of COLLEGE. So, I'll be busy to say the least!
