Bout of Books 14!

Bout of Books
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 12:01 am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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


It’s that time again!  I’m super excited about this Bout of Books because it’s during the week before my final semester of college.  My Summer class ended yesterday, so I don’t have anything, other than laundry and cooking to get in the way of reading.

Time Devoted to Reading

I will be reading every day of the week.

My Goals

  • finish off whatever books I’m currently reading.
  • Read at least one new book off of my TBR shelf.
  • I want to be able to finish at least 3 books, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish 4.

Books to Read

This list will likely change by August 17th, so I’ll update it on day one.

  • Abomination by Gary Whitta
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  • Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling


I will be posting an update each day with the number of books I’ve read that day, the titles of the books I’ve finished, and the total number of books read.  If I wasn’t able to finish a book that day, I’ll put the number of pages read instead.

    1. Since I’m listening to the audiobook, and I mostly listen in my car, Uprooted will probably be the only book remaining on the list that I haven’t finished by BoB. Now that my Summer classes are over, I won’t be driving for 2 hours each day. So unless I’m running errands, I won’t be listening to the book except when I’m doing stuff around the apartment that doesn’t require much concentration.
