Bout of Books 5.0 Read-a-Thon - Starting Post

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
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, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books 5.0 team

Just ended a read-a-thon, and I'm about to enter another one! But it's an effective way of commit myself to reading, and to lower my TBR pile, so here I am. I plan on reading throughout the whole week.

My goals:
  • Read every day, and at least for an hour or two (longer on the weekends);
  • Enter some of the challenges (maybe all of them, if possible);
  • Update my progress everyday (in separate posts);
  • Read 2 (maybe 3, if possible) full books and a few comic books/graphic novels.

The books I'm planning to read - well, I created three piles, to allow me to be choosy, since I'm a mood reader:

My Want To Pile - books I really want to read:
  • Forsaken, Lisa M. Stasse (I just noticed there is a dent on the book's spine - damn you, Book Depository and postal services)
  • Losing Lila, Sarah Alderson
  • Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas

My Back Up Pile - books I'd like to read soon, and might read them on a whim:
  • Stray, Rachel Vincent
  • Fated, Sarah Alderson
  • The Pledge, Kimberly Derting
  • Vixen, Jillian Larkin
  • The World of Downton Abbey, Jessica Fellowes

My Comic Book Pile - comic books to read, probably on the weekend.

  1. So many choices! Good luck with your goals and have fun! ;)

    1. Thank you, and welcome! Lol, I change my mind a lot on what book to read next, so I thought I should have a little leeway... I'm so moody as a reader. xD

  2. Preparada para a segunda semana? :D Devo dizer que soube bem acabar uma e ter logo outra RAT, porque fico sempre nostálgica quando uma termina. Tão vunito o teu Throne of Glass!

    1. Totalmente! Estou super animada, mas estou a tentar mentalizar-me para escrever as reviews que estão para trás. :P

      É giríssimo, até por dentro. Ainda tiro umas fotos para a opinião. ;)

  3. I have been meaning to read The Pledge and I have added Throne of Glass to my TBR list/pile (So many people are reading it for this readathon). I hope you enjoy the books and have a fun week!

    1. Thank you! So true, Throne of Glass is quite popular right now, I hope it is a wonderful read! :D
