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, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team
Hi guys! I have decided to participate in bout-of-books this year, even though it is held on my first week of school. I am hoping we receive minimal homework so I have more time to READ! I have lots to catch up on! I am hoping to get four books read, but I think I will probably only get two or three read. Hopefully I get a chance to read lots on the weekend.
Books I am hoping to complete-
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Cobbogoth by Hannah L. Clark
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I will be updating mid-week on how I am doing so far, so look out for a post on Thursday.
Happy reading and may the odds be ever in your favor!
