Bout of Books Readathon Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I have decided to participate in the Bout of Books read-a-thon again on short notice :) Here is some info about the read-a-thon from the founders:

"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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th in whatever time zone you are in.  Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week.  There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.  For all Bout of Books 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team"

My goals:

I hope to read 4-6 books during the read-a-thon (I typically read 2-3 books a week)
I would like to finish at least one review book
I would like to read 50-100 pages in A Game of Thrones
I plan to read every day except for Friday and Saturday

Potential books to read from my TBR pile:

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (I won't finish this yet but hope to make progress)
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein  (I'm half way through)
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
Divergent by Veronica Roth (reread)
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht
Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal
The Lucky Dog Matchmaking Service by Beth Kendrick
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

If you are interested in participating, it is not too late! Stop by Bout of Books today.


  1. I wish this were a better week for me but good luck on your readathon. I really hope you finish Code Name Verity because, as I've mentioned, it's fabulous!

  2. I'm very tempted to sign up for this...I need to get some reading done.

    Best of luck, Christina! Have fun reading :)

  3. Dearly, Departed and Dearly, Beloved are my recommendations! I loved those books. Good luck this week and have fun!

  4. AGOT is such a long book, but it's so good! Hope you can put a dent in it :)

    I love Divergent/Insurgent!

    Good luck this week :)

  5. You are truly amazing - I LOVE that you read so much!! I always have a goal of reading and I just never quite finish hardly any of them, doh!
