Bout of Books 8.0: Day Four

Today I struggled through read a grand total of 77 pages.

After reading something as amazing and beautiful as Shades of Earth, I did not feel quite up to jumping into another dystopian/action-packed novel. And so I picked up The Jerk Magnet by Melody Carlson; a coming-to-terms novel about a girl, a makeover, and some pretty attractive classmates. Unfortunately, however, this book made me want to hit my head against a solid object. Repeatedly.

In conclusion, I only made it 30% of the way through before giving up for the night...

There were two challenges on day four; the Bookish Road Trip hosted by In Wonderland and I Spy by Paperback Daydreamer. Here are my entries for both:

Challenge #1 - Bookish Road Trip

For this challenge, we had to come up with a list of 5-10 states/places we would like to visit; places that were inspired by books. My list is as follows;

London: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Paris: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
South Carolina: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Amsterdam: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
New York: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare/Percy Jackson & The Olympians series by Rick Riordan

Aaaaaand, for this challenge (which was tons of fun!), we were given a list of words and had to find corresponding book covers.

1. Snowflakes – Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
