This is my second time participating in Bout of Books, and since I enjoyed it immensely the first time around, I am so excited to be a part of it with my new book blog! Bout of Books 9.0 will take place between January 6 and January 12, and here is what I’ve planned for the time interval! This is my official sign-up post for the shenanigans!
Time Devoted to Reading: I’m going to do a book a day like I did the last time. It worked out great and didn’t make me stress myself out.
My Goals: Reading 7 books in total and participating in at least 2 challenges!
Books to Read: The Program by Suzanne Young, Erased by Jennifer Rush, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour-Bookstore by Brian Sloan, Shatter Me and Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi, Game by Barry Lyga and The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine.
Updates: Monday, Tuesday (+ 1 mini-challenge), Wednesday, Thursday (this wasn’t on the list but I couldn’t help myself), Friday (+ 1 challenge), Saturday (+ 1 challenge), Sunday (this wasn’t on the list either but damn it, I could not wait!)
Wrap Up: Bout of Books 9.0 has come to an end and I am so happy I reached my goals in one way or another. I managed to read a book a day BUT two of them weren’t on my inital list of books-to-read. It just shows how much your mood actually affects the books you’re picking up, so I don’t really mind that much. The entire Shatter Me series by Mafi had me so addicted, I couldn’t help but read all of the available books and novellas, same with the new On Dublin Street release by Young. Anyway, I am indeed very happy with this year’s results and can’t wait for the next installment of this readathon!
