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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
This seems like an overly ambitious TBR for this read-a-thon, doesn’t it? Well, my last semester of library classes doesn’t start until the following week, so I thought this would be a great opportunity since I love read-a-thons and during my library classes, it’s impossible to participate in anything fun that is bookish without freaking about about tests! and assignments! and cataloguing! AHHHHH! My TBR has been selected based on ARCs that I need to get off my butt and read, and some of them fit my 2015 reading challenges such as the Book Riot’s 2015 Read Harder Challenge, as well as my personal Month By Month Challenge (where in I let my twitter followers select 12 books, and I must read one of them each month).
Anywho, here’s what I’ve selected for the read-a-thon:
Horns, by Joe Hill (borrowed)
The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson (Month By Month Challenge)
My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga (ARC + Book Riot’s 2015 Read Harder Challenge)
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (ARC + December’s SIT DOWN! SHUT UP! READ THIS! Pick)
Firefight by Brandon Sanderson (ARC + Book Riots 2015 Read Harder Challenge)
Batwoman: World’s Finest Vol 3 by J.H Williams III (because I love Batwoman)
Hopefully I can get through all of these within the week. I’ll be proud of myself if I even get through two of them. The reason? Well, Dragon Age: Inquisition has been kind of stealing my life and I am super duper in love with it. LOOK AT MY QUNARI LADY! SHE IS PRETTY!
Anywho, here’s to everyone’s success during the read-a-thon! 😀
