Bout of Books 17: Challenge #2 & Reading Updates

Bout of Books
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, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Day two is done! I haven't started a book from the beginning yet because I have a few that I've been reading for a couple weeks between moving and unpacking. I really need to finish some of those books so I'm using the Bout of Books motivation to get them done! I did manage to finish one book so I'm excited and decently on track! :)  How did you do on day two of the readathon? Are you on track, running behind, or just going along for the ride? Let me know in the comments!

Mix 'n Match
Pick out 10-15 books from your shelf, from your local library, or from a local bookstore. They can be any genre, any language, and any length. In each book, flip to a random page and pick the 1st word (articles such as "the", "and", "an", "or", etc. don't count as the 1st word). Use all these 1st words to try to create an actual sentence
So here are my words!

And my sentence:
"To kill relief, Macy and Snape married down in the back of this eerie church."

And the books I used:
Night of The Living Dummy by R.L. Stine
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
The Carniverous Cavern by Lemony Snicket
Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy
True Love by Thich Nhat Hanh
Dangerous Girls by R.L. Stine
Goddess by Josephine Angelini
Pride and Prejudice & Zombie by Seth Grahame-Smith
Harry Potter and The Cursed Child by JK Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne
