Bout of Books 4.0 – Goals and Tracking!

May 10, 2012 Fun Stuff 30

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I think I must be insane, participating in a week long read-a-thon that starts on the last day of the semester. I’m giving myself no time to breathe!

But then, thanks to overwhelming stress due to school this past week, I haven’t read anything in over a week (until today, that is).

It’s time to make up for some lost time!

My review schedule is pretty much screwed right now, so I’m going to take the opportunity to read what I want to during Bout of Books 4.0.

And it will be glorious. GLORIOUS I TELL YOU.

Last Bout of Books, I read 8 books! And I was in the middle of the semester, working Full Time. So since the semester will be over, I’m going to up that goal to 10 books.

Books to Read (subject to change at my fancy)

  • The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan
  • Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols
  • One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
  • Someone Else’s Life by Katie Dale
  • BZRK by Michael Grant
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Deyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
  • Fated by Alyson Noel
  • The Stone Girl by Alyssa Sheinmel

    Happy Reading!

      I’m stretching a bit, I think. That’s more than a book a day! But I think I can do it.

    Oh, Mara Dyer! Loved that one, and Noah Shaw is my all-time favorite book boyfriend. I also really liked Someone Else’s Life. Great choices. Good luck!

    • Mandi Kaye

      I’m really excited about both of those. Heck, I’m excited about all ten!

    Good luck getting to 10, I read that many in a month usually lol. And good for you, reading what you want!

    • Mandi Kaye

      I’m kind of liking this whole “throw out the schedule” think I’m doing right now. I might do it more often!

    If you read 8 books last time, I am SURE you can read 10 books this time. Good luck.

    I loved Between Shades of Gray. It is such a great read. You will start reading and before you know it you will be finished. It is that good.

    • Mandi Kaye

      I hope so. The book I’m reading this weekend is pretty dull – to the point where I don’t care if I finish it, but I have to. So I’m really excited to start reading all of these great books tomorrow!

  5. CreativeDeeds

    Yay! You’ve read 4 books and so have I… although I didn’t count the 4th one in today’s post because I didn’t finish it until after midnight last night. Just couldn’t cheat! LOL! Happy Friday!

    OMG I love your layout! And I just read “One For the Money” as well. Stephanie Plum is total nutcase as a character. I’m glad you got as far as you have on your “Bout of Books.”
