"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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team"
I can't believe Bout of Books 13 read-a-thon starts tomorrow. I've been dying for it to start! I just want a week with an excuse to read every single moment - like I already don't do it. =P
My Goals (even though goals aren't an official part of the read-a-thon, I still publish them because they help me keeping me focus on my readings)
My goals for Bout of Books 13 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 decided to read some books that had been released these last weeks. I've controlled myself not to read them as soon as I got them - any bookworm knows how difficult that is. I'll also try to read a few novellas (Gilded Ashes by Rosamund Hodge and The Queen, The Prince and The Guard by Kiera Cass) The. I expect A Court of Thorns and Roses to arrive this week (I've been waiting for two freaking weeks), so it will be one of my readings.
Requiem by Lauren Oliver
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
Let the read-a-thon began! Good luck to everyone who joined it! :)
