Bout of Books Goals
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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Hi all, I’m participating in Bout of Books this time around and I’m so excited! I haven’t been able to participate in the last several because of icky grad school, but my term just finished a couple of weeks ago so it’s obviously time to get my reading on :D. At the time of writing, I am about to finish my finals, so all I want to do is read, haha. Sorry that I’m not linking these books or giving authors, if you want more info about a particular one, let me know, but otherwise it’s mostly just a list for me to keep track of what to read next!
Basically, I have a lot of books that I’ve been wanting to get read, so this is the perfect opportunity. I need to intersperse review books and for fun books though, otherwise I’d probably give up. So, first the review books that I’m going to aim for (in no particular order because I have to just go with what I want):
- Colossus Rises (from ARCycling)
- The Breeders
- The Order of Dimensions
- Tavern on the Edge of Time
And then some Netgalley books that I suppose are also review books, but it’s a different format ;-)
- Gameboard of the Gods
- Some Quiet Place
- Through the Door
Then the books that I borrowed from friends/my mom a while ago and really need to get to:
- Fate’s Edge
- Gunmetal Magic
- Dreams Underfoot
- Searching for Dragons (nice and short :D)
Finally, the general omg I want to read these books and haven’t been able to! These will be interspersed with the “have to” books in case I hit a slump!
- Throne of Glass
- The Girl of Fire and Thorns
- The Night Circus
Um… yeah, this is a rather long list for me, but I’m also going to be reading as much as possible sooooooo, maybe :D. It’s good to stretch ;-).
Are you participating? What are your goals? :D
