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, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure.

Welcome everyone! Starting today is the Bout of Books Read-a-thon #14!  
As many of you know I just adore doing read-a-thons! It's such a fun way to challenge yourself into reading more outside your comfort zone, as well as participating in mini-challenges, and meeting new people. I always have a blast each time and I'd love to see some of my blog readers join in on the fun! Here's the deets if you'd like to join.

Here is mine:



Challenge #4: Day 4 - What to Read Next Challenge

For this Challenge, you need to recommend 3 books (and only 3 books) that you have read this year that you think should be recognized as something great - something everyone should have on their TBR list for this fall.  If you can, say a short little something about why you recommend these books. 

1. The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender (my review)
     I just recently did a review for this book and as you can tell by my review (if you have read it) I LOVED everything about this amazing novel! Want to know more about why I think this book should be on everyone's TBR list? Read my review. ;)

2. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover 
    This year I discovered a new author Colleen Hoover. I am SO glad I did. Her books are one of my favorite books I have EVER read like in all 36 years I've been alive. Maybe, Someday has been my favorite so far. 

3. Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout 
    This whole series is simply amazing! Anything Jennifer L. Armentrout is amazing! Enough, said! ;)
