Summer Wrap-up Read-a-Thon - Starting Post

The Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-Thon is hosted by Jennifer @ Some Like It Paranormal and Jude @ In Between and it is meant to give everyone a little motivation to finish their summer reading. I didn't, and won't, have summer vacations (maybe later in the year), but I certainly welcome a little motivation to get to lower my TBR pile, so here I am, creating my starting post, with my goals and expectations.

As for my goals, I'd like to:
  • Read every day, and at least for an hour (longer on the weekends);
  • Enter some of the challenges (maybe all of them, if possible);
  • Update my progress everyday;
  • Read 3 books and a few comic books/graphic novels.

As for the books I'd like to read, I like to keep my options open and have room for a little leeway, so I created three piles:

My Want To Pile: books I really want to read.
  • Stray, Rachel Vincent
  • Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein

I am expecting a few books from the Book Depository, so if any of them arrives this week, they'll likely get priority:
  • Foretold, Jana Oliver
  • Losing Lila, Sarah Alderson
  • The Forsaken, Lisa Stasse
  • Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas
  • Easy, Tammara Webber

My Back Up Pile: books I'd like to read soon anyways, and can be read if any of my ordered books doesn't arrive.
  • Fated, Sarah Alderson
  • The Pledge, Kimberly Derting
  • Vixen, Jillian Larkin
  • Havoc, Jeff Sampson

My Comic Book Pile: comic books I'd like to read, probably will be so on the weekends.

  1. Awww, I see some nice books here! Good luck <3

  2. Também estou à espera do Throne of Glass, mas não chegou a tempo do post dos goals... raio dos ctt, diz na minha order history que foi enviado no dia 25 de julho, já teve tempo de sobra para me chegar a casa, mas nãaaaao. Talvez dê para incluir na Bout of Books. :D

    1. A tortura, o horror, o drama, a tragédia... que é esperar por uma encomenda do BD. xD Os meus livros, incluindo o Throne, foram enviados a semana passada, por isso é muito duvidoso que ainda cheguem para este RAT - mas como referiste, também estou com esperança de os poder ler para o Bout. :)

    2. É mesmo um filme de terror esperar pelas encomendas hoje em dia O_O

  3. Great pile! Dying to read Stray, Easy, and Throne of Glass! I've always been wanting to check out Hunting Lila and The Pledge!
    Thanks so much for joining us, happy reading and good luck!
