Bout of Books 6.0

{Click on the banner to be directed to the Bout of Books blog.} 
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

 So I think it's high time I participated in Bout of Books and get my read on, don't you think?  I'm a little intimidated because I don't know how many books I can squeeze in with my work schedule, but I'm excited and ready to give it the 'ol college try.

I'm a very moody reader and usually just grab a random book off my shelf based on my current mood.  However, Bout of Books 6.0 gives me the perfect excuse to finally read the books that I should have read forever ago.

Since this is Bout of Books 6.0, I've decided to pick 6 books (in no particular order).

Unfortunately, I don't already have all the books on my shelves so that means I'll need to make a pit stop at the library or Barnes & Noble.  I would be surprised if I can actually get through all six, but it'd be awesome if I did :)

In addition to reading, I'd like to:
  • Write a mini review for each
  • Comment on at least 10 BoB posts daily 
  • Participate in at least 1 Twitter chat
There are bunches of BoB veterans who have all kinds of rad stuff going on (challenges, prizes, etc) so you guys should definitely check them out.  As for me, since this is my first time participating, I'm going to keep the bar kind of low!  What are YOUR goals?


  1. i'm not planning to read as much ^^ so admire you. I loved obsidian so i hope you will manage to find it and read it

  2. I am going to try for six reads as well. Good luck my friend!

  3. Six is my goal, too! I hope you enjoy your first Bout of Books. It's so much fun!

  4. GOOD LUCK TO YOU, Isa boo! I'm at a conference most of next week so I decided to not join this time. I'm so very sad.

  5. 6 is an awesome goal! Definitely doable =) Good luck with your goals and I hope you have fun with Bout of Books!

  6. Have fun! I'm joining this BoB for the first time as well...can't wait to get started!!

  7. 6 is my goal too, so we'll have fun keeping track of each other. I can't believe this is your first Bout-of-Books. You've got some great books on your list. Anxious to see what you think of Mockingjay. Seems like people either loved it or hated it. There weren't many people who fell in the middle. I tore through the Lords of Deliverance books. You'll love Eternal Rider!
    Good luck and have fun!

  8. yes! im reading the vincent boys too!! good luck with your reading! ps i <3 your blog its so pretty

  9. Great list. I have only read The vincent boys and I'm not a fan of it.

    My Goals

  10. A wide selection there! That should make the week really fun for you. Obsidian is totally excellent and The Vincent Boys is on my list for this week, too.

    I liked Mocking Jay, but a heads up--you might need tissues. (Some people do and some don't, from what I've seen.)

    Anyway, I hope that you have an awesome week. Happy reading!

  11. Good luck and happy reading :)
