Bout of Books Read-a-thon! (5)

This is my favorite Read-a-thon to participate in (okay, it’s the only one… but it’s awesome!).

Here’s a little more about the event:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th 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 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Niki’s Goals:

– Finish 3 books

– Read 1000 pages

Last Read-a-thon I finished 2 books and read around 900 pages. I’m hoping to up the ante this time around. :)

Here’s a look at the books on my immediate radar:
(subject to change if I see something shiny)

I usually just update this post rather than bombarding you every day.

  1. Good luck with this! Life has been super busy, so I’m going to take this week off from doing any heavy reading, but I hope you kill it! (Voyage of the Basilisk looks great!)

    • I feel ya – sometimes a break sounds better than anything else. Thank you for the good luck! I’m especially excited for Voyage of the Basilisk. :)

  2. Ooh, how fun! Good luck :D I remember seeing this last year and wondering if I should give it a shot. It’s probably a little late this year, but there’s always next year. You’re doin’ awesome! :)

    • It’s really fun! They do one about 3 times a year. I especially like it because it mixes things up for me. I find myself getting too into a routine without it. :) and thanks!! ❤️

      • Oh, I probably heard about it from you then!! LOL Yes, a refreshing break in the schedule can really do wonders for warding off slumps!

      • Yeah, now I’m almost positive I heard about it from you XD Okay, I’m now officially planning to do the Aug. 2017 Bout of Books :D

      • Yay!!! Oh this will be fun! Maybe I’ll be caught up to you with WoT by then. Just saying…

        Although, sometimes it can be fun to binge read YA.

      • XD Seriously, with that much reading to do I wouldn’t be surprised! YA is sooo much fun for binge reading! That or huge books that otherwise won’t ever get read…like WoT :)
