Bout of Books
Hello all people and friends and (hopefully) book lovers. This is my official post signing me up for the Bout of Books readathon. I’ve never done a readathon before so I’m super excited. Here’s the official blurb from the creators:
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

 

My Goals

There are no requirements besides pushing yourself to read more than you normally would. My goal is to read at least 4 books. I have a rather large TBR list piling up so I’m going to pick from the ones I currently have waiting for me.

the 5th wave  all the rage  the treatment  under my skin  since you've been gone to all the boys i've loved before i'll give you the sun magic study saint anything the heir

    • Thank you! I haven’t read any of the books on your goal list but The Girl On the Train has been on my radar as well 🙂 Good luck to you!

  • You have two of my favorite books on your TBR, The 5th Wave and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Great progress so far!
