Bout of Books 17 Read-a-Thon. My Goals

Monday, 22 August 2016

"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"
Who is excited for the last Bout of Books of 2016? I'm hoping Bout of Books 17 will help me tackle down my TBR pile and get me closer of my goals (I'm trying to read 70 books this year). 

My Goals (even though goals aren't an official part of the read-a-thon anymore, I still publish them because they help me keep focused on my readings) 

My goals for Bout of Books 16 Read-a-Thon are:
  1. To read every day;
  2. To participate in two challenges;
  3. To write at least one blog post per day.
As I mentioned above, I want to get closer of my reading goal, 70 books. And, sadly, I'm far from it (I'm eight book behind the schedule). Would I love to read eight books during the read-a-thon? Of course I'd love to. But I've been a really slow reader. Not matter how much I'm enjoying a book, I'll read it slowly. Hopefully, maybe this week will change a few thins. For Bout of Books 17, I'll try to read, at least, three of the books below. I also plan on reading For Darkness Shows the Stars (ebook). Some of these books will help reach my goal for (Fairytale) Retelling Challenge.

After Alice, Gregory Maguire
Prince of Shadows, Rachel Caine
Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi
The Chaos of Stars, Melissa Marr

As usual, good luck to every brave soul who joined Bout of Books 17. Let the games begin! ;)
