THE BOUT OF BOOKS CHALLENGE!
How many books will I read for Bout of Books 11, which begins at 12:01AM? Can I get through all of them? Will I read more than I actually set out to read? And how did I decide which books to tackle for this wonderful end of the summer reading event?
A quick review about the Bout of Books read-a-thon:
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 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th 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 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I’m planning to finish some books I started. These include:
In the Shadows by Kiersten White & Jim Di Bartolo (This is a mysterious and intriguing graphic novel—it reminds me of Wonderstruck with its textual narrative and visual narrative, which seem separate at first. However, I think the two stories will come together at the end.)
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas (I’m doing a Throne of Glass Read-a-thon at the moment and can’t believe I waited so long to read this series!)
NOTE: I’ll be starting Throne of Glass as soon as I finish this, so expect to get TAB read by the end of Monday.
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor (I started this as a read-along with two of my best friends, and I know it’s going to be a tear jerker, but I do want to finish.)
Eye of the World by Robert Jordan (Yes, this is a massive book but I’m dividing the number of pages I have left by days in the week. Really enjoying it, but it is the first in a massive series—The Wheel of Time.)
If I get through these books, I have a few others that I’d like to read, and I’ll choose from this list:
The Secret Hum of a Daisy by Tracy Holczer
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
Which of these four do you think I should start first??
-Finish the 4 books I started
-Read at least 1 new book
-Visit 5 blogs a day
-Participate in at least two of the challenges (they’re always fun!)
