Bout of Books 7.0: Updates

Bout of Books ReadathonIt’s Bout of Books season! For some reason I completely blanked on the date of this readathon (which started yesterday, FYI) BUT it turns out that you can join one day late. So… yay! Here’s the official blurb:

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 13th and runs through Sunday, May 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

If you are just hearing about this readathon now, there is still time to sign up! Just head over to the Bout of Books sign-up page – just remember, today is the last day!


I solemnly swear:

  • to participate in as many mini-challenges as humanly possible
  • to blog-hop!
  • to have FUN and read!

I am not going to set myself a bunch of must-dos… as long as I get some books read, I’ll be a happy camper.

Books to Read

Bout of Books TBR

In addition to my May TBR, I’d like to tackle some books by authors I know will be in attendance at BEA – namely: Veronica Rossi, Victoria Schwab and Diana Peterfreund. I think I’ll also read some short stories that have been on my TBR list for a while…



Although I wasn’t officially signed up for Bout of Books, I was in the readathon mood yesterday. I read Kelley Armstrong’s The Rising cover-to-cover!
