Bout of Books Readathon 8/22-8/28 - Starting Line + Updates


Yes, another Read-A-Thon! It has been a while since I haven't participate on a read-a-thon, and I really need an extra push to read these days. I recently started to work and I usually come home tired. Believe me, I just want to crawl in my bed and sleep.

Anyway, Bout of Books Read-A-Thon is being hosted by On a Book Bender. Thank you Amanda! It was the perfect moment to do it, since these week I'll probably be "free". So, the idea is to read as much as you can whenever you can between 12:00am 8/22 and 11:59pm 8/28. Easy! :)

My Goal:
Read 5 books. I really want to read a book a day, but I know I'll be busy a couple of days this week, so I want to give myself a realistic goal.
  • 1 book from NetGalley. (Good Girls Don't by Victorial Dahl)
  • 1 book from Simon & Schuster Galley Grab. (The Dog Who Knew Too Much by Spencer Quinn)
  • 1 book from my TRB pile. (Going Bovine by Libba Bray)
  • 1 book from my Kindle. (Falling in Love with English Boys by Melisaa Jensen)
  • 1  random book ?
I'll leave a spot open in case I desire to just pick a random book :P Wish me luck!

You can follow my updates here on my blog, on goodreads, and twitter.
