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

-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
