Bout of Books 8.0 read-a-thon!

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

YAY! It's time for another read-a-thon. I am starting to really love these. Even though I usually start of really strong and then taper off, I am determined to do awesome with this one! I am going to use this opportunity to know off the review books on my list. I am going to make my list probably way longer than I should but if I try really hard I know I can get it.


1. Read at least 2 review books
2. Read at least 2 graphic novels
3. Beat my last bout of books read-a-thon total (5 books).

Some books I'm planning on reading. (subject to change)

1. The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington (review book)
2. Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by Laurie Boyle Crompton (review book)
3. Maus by Art Spiegelman (graphic novel)
4. Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi (graphic novel)
5. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

  1. Good luck!! I love BOB but always get trapped in my work cave whenever it’s going on—fingers crossed this time is different! …plus, there is nothing better than a little ‘bookish gossip’ Happy reading!!
