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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
Day two is in the books! Literally! :)
There's not much I can say for day two except that I read. Not as much as I would have liked but I did read.  I always start these readathons so excited, thinking that I'm going to throw down a ton of books... and then I'm quickly reminded of how slowly I read. lol.  I wish I was a super fast reader, but I'm simply not. And that's okay.  I can't complain when it comes to reading good books.

Challenge #3
Hosted by Bout of Books
5 Favorites
Everybody loves sharing favorites and now we're giving you free rein to do just that. Pick the topic of your choice and share your 5 favorite books that fit. Topics could be a favorite genre, a favorite trope, book boyfriends, or ANYTHING. There's no limit to where you can take this!
So here are my books!
The topic I chose was horror. I'm a horror lover and, though these books are on my TBR and I haven't actually read them yet, these are on my list for a reason. I absolutely love vampires and I absolutely love ghost stories. Ghosts actually scare me more than anything because I've had a ton if experiences in my life and they're the most real for me. I absolutely love R.L. Stine and e is my favorite author. I included an extra book because I HAVE read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and it was so insanely realistic and Seth Grahame-Smith made it so believable. I loved it. I can't wait to read Pride & Prejudice and Zombies.
