Update número dos / Bout of Books

So it’s currently day 5 of Bout of Books and I’m doing a hell of a lot better than I expected??? Let me recap.

Day one: Started reading Ariel by Sylvia Plath

Day two: Started and read 70 pages of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath


On Wednesday I had a bit of a strange day. I was pretty much a sloth for the entire day. However I did manage to read another 90 pages of The Bell Jar!

On Thursday (day 4) I finished off my The Bell Jar reread by reading the last 74 pages! I definitely want to write a proper review of this one soon – but that might have to wait until I have access to a computer again!

I also picked up Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (hallelujah about freaking TIME) and read from page 20 to 160! This one was so much easier to get into than I was expecting, so my goal ’til Sunday is to finish this beast that has been sitting on my TBR forever.

Even though I’m not participating too much in Bout of Books this round, I am really finding the fact that I’m signed up a bit of a push towards reading this week! I’ll let you all know how I went on Sunday evening xo



  1. I was surprised by how much I liked ‘The Bell Jar’. I’d spent years avoiding it, then really connected with Esther. Meg Wolitzer did an excellent, slightly fantastical riff on it with ‘Belzhar’.
