Bout of Books Readathon!

Bout of Books Readathon!

This will be my first read-a-thon of 2013 and I’m psyched to participate! I have 3/7 days off of work (Mon, Wed & Sat) so I will be trying to get even more reading in then I usually do which will also help me get a bit ahead on my 365 Books in 365 Days challenge (so needed). Make sure to sign up if you’d like here! The following is the official Bout of Books blurb which is a great summary of the read-a-thon:

“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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books 6.0 team”

I already am reading a book a day (to keep up with my challenges of course!) but I will somehow try and read even more than that during this read-a-thon. My specific goals are to get going on my Seriously Series Reading & Key Word Reading Challenges since I haven’t read anything for those and some of the books (especially for the series) are quite long so I need to get a move on. I don’t have a specific amount of books I’ll try to read but I’ll shoot for 10-12 including a couple short prequels. Here is a list of possibilites:

1. The Snow Garden by Christopher Rice

2. Ten by Gretchen McNeil

3. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

5. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth

7. Black Water (Pendragon Series) by D. J. MacHale

8. Paper Towns by John Green

9. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

10. Every Day by David Levithan

11. Looking For Alaska by John Green

12. Become by Ali Cross

13. Angelfall by Susan Ee

14. Beautiful Creatures by Margaret Stohl & Kami Garcia

15. The Restorer by Amanda Stevens
