Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

It’s almost time for the Bout of Books Readathon!

From the Bout of Books blog:

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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th in whatever time zone you are in.  Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week.  There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.  For all Bout of Books 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

This year I’m hosting one of the challenges, so I’m super excited! This is also the month where I plan to conquer my review book pile, so I’m hoping that, by the end of the readathon, I’ll only have a handful of review books left.

Interested in the week’s schedule? Check it out HERE.

What I plan to read:

Well, dedicated readers of mine, that’s where YOU come in! Seeing as my TBR list has passed into the 600-mark on Goodreads, I thought I’d let YOU pick my books! Below, I’ve listed 20 books and I’ll pick them off from the most voted as the week goes on. The only exception is INSURGENT, which Amanda (On a Book Bender) and I are reading together. But the rest is up to you! So, vote away!

Voting is now closed! Thank you to everyone who voted!

  3. I’m so excited that you’re hosting a challenge, Kristilyn! I totally plan on participating. I’m also hosting one as well, and am super excited! =) I also hope to conquer my review books during the month, and especially during this readathon, since school unfortunately starts at the end of the month. :P I also love how you did a poll! So smart. ;)

    Good luck Kristilyn!! I’ll be looking for your updates. =)
