Bout of Books Read-a-thon 10 - Goals & Updates!

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 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Welcome to Bout of Books 10! 

Runs May 12th - May 18th.

Informal Challenge
To kick off the read-a-thon, we're doing something a little different. We're hosting an informal challenge. Take a picture of yourself with your reading pile, your reading companions, the Bout of Books tagline (Are you ready to get your read on?), or anything else that will let us get to know YOU! Upload it to any social media site with the #boutofbooks hashtag and CONNECT with other readers!ARE YOU READY TO GET YOUR READ ON?

Hi, my name is Beckie and here's my Bout of Books reading pile and fur-baby I cuddle with while reading. ;) Her name is Nikki. 


Here's my Kindle Fire for when I need a break from reading. ;) 



The Book Barbies Challenge: If You Like X, Try Y

If you like, Lola and The Boy Next Door, then try Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols. (review coming tomorrow)

If you like a YA Mystery/Thriller then try, 



My Life in Books' Bookish Battle Royal Challenge
The Rules1. Choose three or more fictional characters as combatants – they can be haphazardly picked or themed (for example, I went with badass classic literature protagonists)2. List three strengths and weakness for each contender (feel free to skip this step if you’re using social media to participate in Bout of Books i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads…)3. Determine who would come out victorious and give a little explanation why you think they would win – get creative with the outcomes!4. Link in the comments and if you tweet about this challenge make sure to use the hashtag #bookbattleroyal in addition to #boutofbooks because I want to see all your dueling characters!

The Combatants
Fallen Angels / Angels

- Patch Cipriano -
from Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick 

Strengths - Determined, Part Angel, Willing to Die for those he loves
Weakness - Sometimes shallow, doesn't think before he acts, stubborn 


- Kalona - 
from the House of Night series by P.C. Cast

Strengths - Immortal, able to fly, able to shift to anyone to hide his true appearance. 
Weakness - Can be trapped him under the earth, Jealousy, love


- Jackson Godspeed -
from Immortal City series by Scott Speer

Strengths -. Super Strong, Can fly, Immortal
Weakness - Love, Money, ?



And the winner is....
Kalona wins because unlike Patch and Jackson he is pure evil! He lives only to serve himself and the Goddess Nyx. His powers are no compare to those of Patch and Jackson. 



Kimberlyfaye Reads' Spell It Out Challenge

For this challenge I have to use book titles to spell out my name, Beckie
