This is my second time participating in a Bout of Books read-a-thon, a wonderfully low-pressure week where readers and bloggers alike set reading goals and update each other on their progress! I participated in Bout of Books 11 and found that it really helped me be successful in knocking books off of my TBR. Seeing as I have quite a few books coming from pre-orders and ARCs to get through, May is the perfect month for a read-a-thon!
The Official Purpose
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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
My Goals for the Bout of Books Week:
-Read at least 3 books
-Of these books, 1 must be a May release and 1 must be an ARC
-Write and schedule reviews for all books read
-Catch up on all reviews that need to be written
–Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider
–Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
–A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
–The Heir by Kiera Cass
–The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski
I’ll have an updates post that I’ll add to throughout the week to track my progress! Are you participating? If so, what are your goals?
Yay! So glad you’re doing this again. I am too. 🙂 Nice TBR, I need to read Extraordinary Means and Emmy & Oliver soon. My goal is to read three books. Or at least finish the five Kindle books I’m in the middle of. 🙁 Good luck!
I think 3 books is a great goal for this challenge, especially if you’re pushing yourself to write reviews as part of the challenge too! Can’t wait to see how your week goes 🙂
I am working on my Bout of Books sign-up post! I am super excited! I love all the reading and the community and mini challenges. I pretty much love everything to do with Bout of Books. 🙂
Bout of Books is so much fun and really just gives me that push to get through some books on my TBR without distractions! Looking forward to your posts 🙂
Yay! Another participant! 😀 I will also be participating. (LOL, you know that already.) The books on your potential TBR look great! Let me know how The Heir goes for you though. I have been dying to read it but haven’t had the chance to go out and get it. 🙁 I wish you luck in this read-a-thon!
Thanks! I’m reading ACOTAR right now and then I need to continue on with review copies but once those are out of the way I hope to get to the Heir and ACOTAR!
Ahhh ACOTAR. I hope you enjoying it! I have still yet to read it actually. The Heir!!! People have been talking about that book. Hope we both enjoy it! 😉
