Bout of Books 4.0 Read-a-thon

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Bout of Books is a week long read-a-thon, run from 12:01am on Monday, May 14th through 11:59pm Sunday, May 20st in whatever time zone you are in. It is totally low pressure, meaning participants are only asked to push themselves to read more than they normally would during any given week. There is no competition between readers. How much time a reader wants, and can commit, to read, tweet, or network with fellow bloggers is left to individual preference.

Challenges/Giveaways
Wednesday 5/16: Shannon - Re-title It
Thursday 5/17 : Amy - Zombie Book Cover
Friday 5/18: Jacinda - Shoes
Saturday 5/19: Smash and Stephanie - Book Poetry
Sunday 5/20: No challenge (Kelsey and Jen D giveaways)

Twitter Chats(chats last approximately one hour)
Wednesday 5/16: 8pm CST (UTC-5)
Friday 5/18: 1pm CST (UTC-5)
Sunday 5/20: 10am CST (UTC-5)

This is the perfect excuse for me to catch up with my reading. So my goal is to read 3 books this week. Hopefully life won't get in the way.


Charade by Cambria Hebert
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris

  3. I haven't read any of those books to give you advice on what you should read first :( BUT I am hoping you're able to at least read 3 of them.
