Bout of Books: Sign Up and Updates

I am finally able to participate in another Bout of Books challenge! I have a month off between my spring and summer classes and Bout of Books falls right in the middle. A week of reading books of my choice and not for school? Sign me up! If you haven't participated in Bout of Books before then you really should. It's fun, you set your own goals, and you can win prizes!

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th 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 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

My Goals

Reading Goals
  • Read all four books listed below.
  • Take notes while reading for the review.
Social Goals
  • Participate in one Twitter chat.
  • Participate in one mini challenge.
The Books
  • Dread Nation
  • Starry Eyes
  • The Belles
  • The Wedding Date


Although not on my original list, I read and finished Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau! That means I have read a total of  352 pages.



You guessed it, nothing.



I finally had time to read again! To finish off the read-a-thon I read The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton! This brought me up to having read a total of 792 pages. I'll take it. The Belles was another really good book! I highly recommend it.


  1. Have fun! This reminds me I haven't signed up yet -- I better get on that :)

    1. I think I did okay.... lol I read two books so I am okay with that.

  2. I hope you enjoy all of your challenge reads. I really enjoyed both The Belles and Starry Eyes when I read them. I still need to read the other two.

    1. I LOVED The Belles, and I still haven't read Starry Eyes but I have yet to hear a bad thing about it.

  3. Two books would have been way better than I've done :P
    Happy you enjoyed them both!
