For those that don’t know what Bout of Books is… here you go:
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 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
This will be my third time participating and I am really excited. For the most part there is something about read-a-thons that motivate me to actually read more. January will be my last full month that I will be really able to dedicate time to reading. I have some changes coming up in my life and I don’t know how much free time and such I will have. My TBR is not set in stone and I have been in such a weird reading mood it was hard to make up a list, but I hope I can get through these books!
♠ I am hoping to read at least 100 pages a day.
♠ Finish at least two books (but hoping I finish more!)
♠ Update as much as possible (via my blog and twitter) [updates will follow my normal format]
♠ Share quotes and thoughts on books throughout the week.
♠ The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
♠ Ensnared by A.G. Howard ( comes out Jan 6th)
♠ The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkowski
♠ Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
♠ The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
♠ Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick
