Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Hey everyone! *waves* It is time once again for a Bout of Book read-a-thon. 4.0 Baby! WHOO! I am super excited to be able to participate again in this amazing week long event. Never heard of a Read-a-thon? Well it is a fun way to challenge yourself by reading as many book as you like within the time allowed. You just read, read, read! Oh, and you can blog or tweet your updates along the way. This is also a fantastic way to meet new book friends and win prizes! Sign up's are still open - HERE

I hope to really challenge myself this time and read more review novels I have to get caught up on. Most important is to simply have fun!

Below will be my goals and updates throughout the week. 



Time Devoted to Reading
  • I will be reading the whole week (off and on *hopefully more on* - not continuously )
Goals:
  • Read 3-5 Books
  • Read books I need to review for authors/publishers.
  • Meets new people, make friends but most of all have fun!
  • Do not get stressed out if I can not read all I would like to. 
Books I will be reading - [ This may be subject to chance ]

  1. Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz
  2. The Selection by Kiera Cass
