Bout of Books Read-a-Thon #12: 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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th 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 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


Welcome everyone! Starting today is the Bout of Books Read-a-thon #12!  
As many of you know I LOVE doing read-a-thons and now so does my reviewer Hillary. We both will be participating in this one. :) It will be our first reading challenge of the new year.

On this post both Hillary and I will be sharing what books we will be reading throughout the week, our goals, and daily updates.  We will also will be using our twitter accounts Beckie @SyCo4Twilight & Hillary @BookOwl93 to post more in depth updates as well as chatting with other read-a-thon participants.




Sign ups for the read-a-thon are still open. Come join us!

Character Coupling Challenge by Writing my own fairytale

Ember from Talon by Julie Kagawa
Jacinda from Firelight by Sophie Jordan



Status: friendship! 
I think they would make great friends because they're both dragons and know what it's like to keep their identity a secret. Both being girls, they can also relate to other things and learn from each other. A true kindred friendship.

Character Coupling Challenge by Writing my own fairytale

16068910
Bianca from The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
19237391
Brandon from Duplicity by N.K. Traver
Status: Romantic
I chose Brandon to date Bianca because ever since I read The Art of Lainey, the relationship between Lainey and Micah left a huge impression on me, I just felt there needed to be more odd couples out there similar to them. Who would be better than Bianca and Brandon? Bianca is sweet, loyal, and supportive while Brandon is rebellious, has tats, and can be sweet when you least expect it. He’s also learning to be loyal and Bianca would be a great girlfriend to learn more of that from.
