"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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team"
The first time I participated in Bout of Books Read-a-Thon was back in January 2014. I'm so happy that one year later I'm now taking part in my 4th Bout of Books. One year of great readings. One year meeting extraordinary bookworms.
My Goals (even though goals aren't an official part of the read-a-thon this time, I'm still publishing them because they help me keeping me focus on my readings)
My goals for Bout of Books 12 Read-a-Thon are:
- To read every day;
- To participate in two challenges;
- To write at least one blog post per day.
This time I found easier to choose my readings for the read-a-thon. As there are a few books I've been wanting to read for a long time, I decided to create a list with the books I desperately want to read during the first months of this new year.
"Shifting Shadows" by Patricia Briggs
"Pandemonium" by Lauren Oliver
"The Princess Bride" byWilliam Goldman
"To All the Boys I've Loved Before" by Jenny Han
"Harry Potter: The Prequel" by J.K. Rowling
I wish everyone the best of luck and great readings. Now, let the readings begin! :)
