Bout of Books Starting Line
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
Yey it’s finally here :D *hops around excitedly* All right, so my reading list is changing a bit since I decided to join in the Clean Sweep challenge and therefore want to read all review copies! I also was very lucky and a certain awesome friend of mine gave me a lot of ARCs (old and newer) that she didn’t want to hold on to. I therefore have lots of ARCs to read, yey! I’m also lucky enough to be able to take a couple days off this week and go to my mom’s graduation which is a 12-hour drive away. My boyfriend prefers to drive and I prefer to read, so that’s 24+ hours of reading right there :D.
Note: I didn’t wisely plan lots of posts ahead of time and so I will not be posting anything besides Bout of Books things this week until Friday (when you can check out my review of Through the Ever Night :D). However, I will be updating this posts every day and entering in the challenges, yey!
There are some books that I accepted for review many many months ago that still need to get some love. Those will be first, though I’m not promising that I’ll read in any order, haha:
- The Breeders
- The Order of Dimensions
- Tavern on the Edge of Time
And then I have a couple of NetGalley books that I need to read so NetGalley doesn’t get mad at me:
- Gameboard of the Gods Finished 5/13/13 (4 Stars!)
- Some Quiet Place
- Through the Door
- Playing Tyler
Then a couple of the old/new ARCs that I just really want to read and they totally count right?
- Siege and Storm (omg, so excited) Amazing – 5 stars
- Colossus Rises
- Hero’s Guide to Saving the Kingdom
- Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle
- The Wells Bequest
- Different Girl
Finally, I have one short book that I borrowed from a friend and so will throw in if I’m craving it ;-)
- Searching for Dragons
Still a very long list, but I’m not actually expecting to get all of them read, I just like lists, haha.
I’ll cross books off up above when I finish them, but here is where I’ll also put everything for each day.
