BOUT OF BOOKS 13 - Goals and Updates

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 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th 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 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

It's that time of the year again...I am a recent joiner of the #boutofbooks challenge and the last time I participated it was a huge success for me and really loved it. I managed to read far more than I would usually in a week. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with other members and updating my progress as well as seeing other people joining in on the fun. Now like all readers its choosing what book to read, do I go ARCs which I have quite a lot of, or my TBR which again is ever-growing. Sadly lol. So I've decided to mix it up a bit and this is a potential list of books that I will likely pick from this week.

As you can see a lot of contemporary but that is in the mood I'm in right now. Three of them are ARCs and the rest TBR. I will be reading Asa with Donna from Book Passion For Life and Every Last Word later in the week with Jasprit from The Reader's Den. So it's going to be a good week. I hope this bout of books is going to be a success as the previous ones, my hours have been increased as of this week so time may be limited this week sadly. I will be updating this post daily as well my Instagram and Twitter so be sure to head on over. 

Are you joining Bout of Books? Have you read any of these books? Let me know and link me up. 


  1. Good luck with reading girl :) You can do it. Surprisingly all of them are new to me so I cannot wait to see what you think of them :)

  2. I have never joined but I do participate in an ARC challenge (going on right now) and in the TBR pile challenge every year. I love them as well because they really do help me to pick up those books and read!

  3. Ahhhh can't wait to see what you think of Nowhere But Here Emma! I couldn't be more excited for that one:) I'm really looking forward to Between Us and the Moon as well, I loved Rebecca's Infinite series. GO YOU!!!!

  4. Good luck with your reading Emma! I wasn't able to read much today, but hopefully will get more read later tonight, I hope we both end up enjoying Every Little Word!

  5. I work a lot this week as well, so this wouldn't be a good time to join the challenge. I hope you get a lot of these read though, and good luck!

  6. Woot! Good luck, Emma! :) Curious to your thoughts on Between Us and the Moon, Every Last Word and Nowhere But Here. Hopefully you'll end up enjoying all of them. :)

  7. I haven't read any of these, but contemporaries are a good choice for readathons in my opinion. Good luck!
