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 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Thoughts & Goals

I haven’t been joining a lot of Read-a-thins lately because to be honest with my crazy busy work schedule, family obligations, and all the stuff that needs to get done in my own home…I feel that I already do the best that I can in terms of maximizing my reading time (while still saving a little time to spend with my Hubby:)

That said-I really miss the camaraderie of doing a read-a-thon and giving myself that little push to get just a few more pages read – so here I am!

My Reading List

You (You #1) – Caroline Kepnes (Audiobook) COMPLETED
Sinner (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #4) – Maggie Stiefvater COMPLETED
The Valentine Wedding Dress – Sherryl Woods (Audiobook-Novella) COMPLETED
Never Fade (Darkest Minds #2) – Alexandra Bracken COMPLETED
Free Four: Tobias Tells the Divergent Knife-Throwing Scene (Divergent 1.5) – Veronica Roth COMPLETED
The Ice Twins – S.K. Tremayne
The Invention of Wings – Sue Monk Kidd STARTED
Love Fortunes and Other Disasters – Kimberly Karalius
The Snow Queen – Hans Christian Andersen (Audiobook-Short Story) COMPLETED
Shoggoth’s Old Peculiar – Neil Gaiman (Audiobook-Short Story) COMPLETED

Challenge: Book Haiku

You Me forever
It’s an “Everythingship”
Until it’s Dead, Buried

based upon You by Caroline Kepnes

      I loved Sinner too! And regarding You…a word of advise…it is more twisted than twisty… I kept waiting for a twist or surprise but there really was none.
