Read-a-thon

Bout of Books 16

Bout of Books
 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 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I ended up missing the last Bout of Books so I’m really excited to be taking part in this one!  I’ve got a fairly standard week planned: work, a couple of job applications, some gym sessions and some social plans, so I’m setting my goal at 1000 pages – a bit more than my usual target of 100 pages a day, so we’ll see how it goes!

In terms of book choices, I’d love to finish Grave Peril on audio since I only have a couple of hours left, and start and finish Percy Jackson & The Last Olympian.  I’m expecting A Court of Thorns and Roses & A Court of Mist and Fury to arrive on Wednesday, and Forever to arrive on Friday so I probably won’t get through all three, but they’re definitely possibilities!  If I have any extra time, I’ll probably pick up a manga or two since I loved reading Attack on Titan: Before the Fall last month.

Goals:

  • Finish Grave Peril on audio
  • Read 1000 pages
  • Have fun!

Possible TBR:
