Bout of Books 10.0 Read-a-Thon

Friday, May 9, 2014

Hi everyone! I know I haven't been around for quite some time — I've been swamped with schoolwork. Thankfully, I only have one more week of school (which means lots of books reviews coming!) Thanks for continuing to stick by me :)

I wanted to quickly mention a read-a-thon I'll be semi-participating in next week — the Bout of Books 10.0! It begins on Monday, May 12 and goes until Sunday, May 18. Even though I have three finals on Tuesday and a paper due the Monday after, I should be okay with spending a little extra time to read. (What is studying, anyway? :p)

Bout of BooksThe 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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

I will be starting the read-a-thon on Wednesday since Monday and Tuesday are quite the busy days. My only goal for this read-a-thon is to read five books, one for each day (Wednesday - Sunday). I borrowed a couple of books from my school library, so here are the ones I'll be choosing from:

I'll be blogging my progress every day (hopefully), so check back here on Wednesday/Thursday for my first update!

  1. I understand how you are busy because of finals. I have been slacking on my book review blog also because of school work. I say that control looks really good, although I have not read any of these books.

  2. Good luck with the last week of school :D Have fun with your read-a-thon!
