Bout of Books 6.0 Read-a-Thon: Goals!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

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 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

On Twitter we'll use #BoutOfBooks.

  1. Great goals! I meant to reread Divergent before I read Insurgent but it never happened. Maybe I will reread both this spring before the third book comes out.

    I've signed up for this read-a-thon too. Good luck with meeting all of your goals!

  2. You have some awesome goals for this week, I may have to steal a few of them. ;) I love this idea of reading novellas, not only will that be really motivating, but I can finally get those little books knocked out! Fabulous idea! One of my goals is to also write reviews for all of the books I read, so that they don't get left behind. ;) But hopefully I won't procrastinate on the review writing!

    Good luck with your fabulous goals! Happy reading. <3

    1. Yea, I've been meaning to read the Throne of Glass prequel novellas, but I keep postponing, so I decided to list them as goals, so I will read them finally :) and steal them away ^_^ Hopefully I won't procrastinate on any of my goals.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Oh, I loved Divergent! :)

    Good luck & Happy reading!

  4. Oooh some great goals there! Best of luck with them :-D

  5. I can't wait to get started on this!! Tonight I am stopping by blogs since I have some time.. because tomorrow I am going to be reading!

    Angela's Anxious Life

  6. I can tell that you have done this before. My goals are not specific enough. I do better when I know what I am going for, so maybe I should revisit the idea. I am looking forward to hearing what you think of those Kresley Cole books. I have had the author on my TBR for too long.
    Best of luck with your goals. I look forward to following your progress.

    1. Yeah, I'm a regular old read-a-thon addict, although I haven't participated in Bout of Books since the 1st Bout of Books Read-a-Thon :)

      I usually don't list such specific goals, I just read as much as I can, but I haven't been reading as much lately, so I thought I need a specific list to keep me going ;)

      I've had them on my tbr, too, but I haven't read any from Kresley Cole's books so far, and this is her YA debut, so I don't know how it will be compared to her other books, but so far it has been really interesting.

      Thanks for stopping by :D

  7. I need to read Divergent, too! Maybe I'll join the read-a-long, but I don't know if I can squeeze it in this month!

    I hope you have a great week, Aleksandra!
