Bout of Books 21

One of my 2018 goals is to participate in at least four readathons (I had initially said more readathons but I think it helps to have a measurable number) so I’m excited to be joining in for the 21st round of Bout of Books.  This is one of my favorite readathons because it’s very low pressure.  You determine the number of books you want to read throughout the week and reading anything at all is considered a win.  I really want to get a jump on my TBR pile for the year so this felt like the perfect opportunity to join in. Plus, I’ve had SEVEN library loans come off hold in the past few days and I might be freaking out a bit.


My goal is to read a total of 3 books during the week and to make progress on my January classic read.


The books I plan on reading are 1) Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, 2) Wild Beauty by Anna Marie McLemore, 3) Air Awakens by Elise Kova OR Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart OR Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl OR Grit by Gillian French (accounting for my mood reading here!), 4) listen to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling on audio and to make progress on 4) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

    Wild Beauty is one of the books I want to read from during the course of the week because I had started it in November but put it down and read other things. :) Looks like a ton of great books on your TBR. Hope your week goes amazingly!

    Oooohhh I LOVE reading and booktube but I’ve never actually taken part in a readathon. I never really know when they are on – how do you keep up to date with them?
