Lewis' Bout of Books Goals & Updates



What is 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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.


This will be my first time taking part in a read-a-thon, and I didn't start reading as  hobby until the beginning of this year after a certain someone kept shoving books under my nose *ahem* Lauren! Anyway, I'm going to try my best to start and complete three books, and make a start on a forth if I have the time. I don't plan on taking part in a Twitter chat because I'm too shy. (Psst, lets drag him in yes?) If you're looking for Lauren's Goals and Updates they can be found here.


Goals:
Start and finish the 3 Star Wars books
Finish Mockingjay
Make a start on a 4th if I have time
Visit some blogs if I figure this out

Thoughts:
So I've read the two graphic novels and i would say that im pretty impressed on how well the author was able to pull fit so much of a story into the book. The first one was a bit choppy, for example Qui Gon and Obi Wan would find Jaja in the forest then they would all of a sudden be at the underwater city. That scene only lasted about 10 seconds before they were back on land and at Amidala's palace!

The next book was better because he fixed the problem with the choppy parts and filled them with small details or extra parts. I enjoyed this book a lot more because of this.
Revan, this is a character i've always loved, and it takes place after he turns back to the light which is great becasue its the unheard part about his life. Im enjoying it so far but it seems that im getting more of Scourges story than Revan. Its been slow but i can tell its picking up and i cant wait to see how the author intertwines the two characters sories.

I enjoyed reading some more of Revan. Lots more detail has been shown and now Scourge is a character I'm beginning to enjoy as he really shows what the dark side is like. As for Revan he seems to not have any big parts at the moment so I'm not enjoying his story as of yet.
Mockingjay turned out to be fantastic and I'm really happy that my best friend wanted me to read it so much that she had to read it to me haha. I really enjoyed the last few chapters she read as it was exciting and lots was going on, even with all the parts that made the book seem really under detailed.

Revan was just as good today. Scourge is my favourite for now as he is doing lots to be a big part of the book. Revan is still great but he's not doing much as of yet, although I think the book is easing into his story so I enjoy it none of the less.
