I was super excited when I was scrolling my Google Reader tonight and I heard about this thing call Bout of Books. I love reading challenges and book readathons because it keeps me motivated to read. If I do not set goals for myself and have challenges, reading tends to fall by the wayside for me. So I was super stoked to find out about this event. Dewey’s 24-hour readathon always makes me super passionate about reading, but soon after, Real Life gets in the way of my book life and I don’t find the time to read nearly as much as I want to.
So my hope is that Bout of Books will keep the reading up for a while long. I am a slow reader and I have to be realistic with myself… I will probably not get done a book a day (how I wish). So my goal is to read four of the following books. If I read more, I will consider it icing on the cake!
Twilight – Stephenie Meyer (started)finished 10/24/11
- New Moon – Stephenie Meyer
- Eclipse – Stephenie Meyer
- Breaking Dawn – Stephenie Meyer
- The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner – Stephenie Meyer
- Stolen – Lucy Christopher (started)
- Delirium – Lauren Oliver
- Stay – Deb Caletti
- Bitter End – Jennifer Brown
- Wake Unto Me – Lisa Cach
- Lola and the Boy Next Door
- City of Bones – Cassandra Clare
- Incarceron – Catherine Fisher
- Divergent – Veronica Roth
- Wither – Lauren DeStafano
I will update the list with books crossed off once they are completed. I know I listed a lot of books, but I am going to try to stick to this list and so the longer it is, the more options I have 🙂
Are you participating in Bout of Books? If not, why not? You can read like normal and still participate. If you are, do you have a goal list to share? If so, leave a comment with a link and I will check it out! Thanks for reading and hope to see you on the other side of this challenge! Be on the look out for a couple reviews that should be posted this week!
