The Bout of Books Readathon (17th – 23rd of August)

BoB14-200x200It is Bout of Books time again and this time I am planning on reading more books than I have ever read in a Bout of Books readathon before!

If you don’t know what Bout of Books is, it is a reading challenge that simply asks you to read as much as you possibly can over a week. There are also various mini-challenges hosted throughout the week of Bout of Books which allow you to win fabulous prizes…mostly Amazon vouchers but who does like a good Amazon voucher?

If you want to find out more and sign up to take part check out their website here.

And here is a little introduction from Bout of Books themselves:

“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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team”

I will be reading:

  • The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snickett
  • The Vile Villiage by Lemony Snickett
  • The Hostile Hospital by Lemony Snickett
  • The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
  • The Watchmarker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
  • Vicious by V.E Schwab

If you want to keep track of my progress while I attempt to read 6 books in a week you can follow me on GoodReads here. If not I will be trying my best to keep things updated on here.

Is anyone else doing Bout of Books this week? If so let me know, I would love to keep track of your readathon progress.
