It’s that time again for Bout of Books! I’m going to participate as usual, even though I’ll be back to work. I’ll still manage to make some time to read and hopefully get a chat or two in there. I’m going for stress-free goals again and I’m just planning on having fun. My books to read and updates post will be up closer to it starting.

Hope you can join me! Sign up here.

My reading time will be any breaks I get at work, as we as a little bit in the evenings. I won’t be reading as much this round but I’m still going to do my best.

Goals:

  • Participate as much as I can.
  • Participate in at least one chat.
  • Read at least one book.

Books to Read:

  • Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda  by Becky Abertalli (on page 46 before read-a-thon)
  • The Unquiet by Mikaela Everett
  • Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
  • The Accident Season

Progress:

This read-a-thon I was super bad at adding any updates here! It was my second week at my new job and when I got home every night I was just so tired. I did get some stuff done though! I finished two books and started a bit of a third. I didn’t make it to any of the chats and didn’t do any challenges though.
