Bout of Books Read-a-thon 11 - 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 11!

Runs August 18th - August 24th.

It's time once again for another Bout of Books read-a-thon. YAY! *claps* This is my 9th one I've participated in in the past few years and if you've never done one you're surely missing out. They are so much fun! It's a great way for me to challenge myself to read more than I normally do. Plus, I love the giveaways and of course sharing my updates via Twitter and with you all as well.


On this post you will find what books I will be reading throughout the week, my goals and daily updates. I will be updating THIS post each day, so check back often to see what's new. I may do a few other posts throughout the week to recap. Also all mini-challenges I complete will be at the bottom of this post.  For more hourly updates, I will be posting on my twitter account.  @SyCo4Twilight using the hashtag #boutofbooks

5 Book Challenge | Post-Apoctolyptic Challenge 
hosted by Falling Down the book hole

There's been a Alien Invasion... 
Given the short amount of time you are only able to take 5 books with you. What books would you pick to take with you as you escape and prepare for the end of the world. Would you choose books that would help you survive in the post-apocalyptic world ,books for pleasure that would make you happy and take you to a fantasy reality or books that you can’t live without?

  1. First and foremost, The Bible. For obvious reasons of course. I'm a Christian and The book would help me through whatever came next.
  2. White Hot Kiss! I've recently read this one a week or so ago and was blown away by how awesome it was. I DEVOURED IT in hours! *sigh* Personally one of my favorites book of all time. 
  3. The Devouring by Simon Holt. Because it's another one of my favorite books and a book I would read over and over again. Super scary too. (a distraction, maybe?)
  4. Les Misérables. I've never read it but it's super long to I would have plenty to read or it could be used for a fire. haha!
  5. My Kindle. Does that count? 0_o Of course, that's WAY more than 5 books but of well.

  3. Lol! I love how you used a shipping envelope! That was awesomely creative!! Totally beats my photoshop. :) You can see mine here.

    I'm reading Midnight Thief as well. You've got some other great books there to get through too. Good luck!
