Bout of Books 16 Progress

 Bout of Books

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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

 Goals:

  • To get to at least one chat
  • Participate in at least one challenge
  • Have fun and meet new people
  • Read in the back yard on the weekend!

Books to Read:

I was debating on just winging it this round, but I definitely have some books I want to get through. So I chose a few, but the rest will be dependent on my mood at the time. I’ve already started The Rose and the Dagger so I’ll just be finishing that up.

I’ll be updating on my blog once a day, but I will be on Twitter and Instagram way more often throughout the week. Feel free to see how I’m doing from there!
