August 17, 2014 Reading Challenge, Thuy 5

boutofbooksbanner

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.

My friend K convinced me to sign up for Bout of Books again. I tend to suck at reading challenges so I don’t sign up too often but Bout of Books is fun and it’s nice to get a little push to read more. I am keeping my goals pretty modest since the challenge only runs a week.┬áThese are my goals.

    I am also bad at reading challenges, but I like the list-making part of them :) Looks like you’ve picked out some great books. I’m curious about the Jeaniene Frost so I hope you read that one. Happy reading!!

    • I love lists, too, Lucy. I like crossing things off of them. :) Let’s so how I do with this one…

  • Sugar & Snark

    I have read some of the Batgirl! Was good stuff! Enjoy :)
