Since I had such a blast with the last read-a-thon I’m ready to do it all again! I participated in the first Bout of Books but haven’t had a chance to join in the fun again. Since ALL THE BOOKS are coming out in May this read-a-thon is a great opportunity to read, read, read. I like that this read-a-thon is so flexible with a go at your own pace attitude.
Here’s a little bit about Bout of Books for the uninitiated:
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
You can post a list of books you want to read, or just play it by ear. And audiobooks count too – yay!
A few books I’m considering reading/listening to during Bout of Books 7.0 (list almost certain to change) are:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – maybe audio
The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr – maybe audio
Golden by Jessi Kirby
Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker – audio
If I Should Die by Amy Plum
Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols (or another Echols book)
Let me know if you’ll be participating in Bout of Books, and if you like to plan out your books ahead of time or let your mood decide.
