Kat Joins Bout of Books 5.0 : Goals


If you don't know what Bout of Books is check it out here


Yay, it's that time of the year again ! This is my 4th Bout of Books. My strategy this time is to read the shorter books on my shelf. Nick and Norah is only about 200 pages ! This is kind of a clandestine list of books I plucked off my shelf, but I've been meaning to get to them.  I also added a bonus list of books from the library I need to get through.

Usually I kind of  bow out of Bout of Books early, but I feel like I've been in training for Bout of Books 5.0 ! Lately I've been reading 3-4 books a week, so I'm going to challenge myself this time. I'll be doing my updates on Goodreads and Twitter.



BOOKS TO READ

The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Carnival of Souls (ARC) by Melissa Marr
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan Swapped out for Origin by Jessica Khoury

Bonus late additions

    This is a really great list! I am going to be joining too. August is the month of read-a-thons and bookish events for me I guess. I'm doing the wrap up summer read-a-thon now and also netgalley knockout and review copy clean (both month long events) but bout of books is the first read-a-thon that I have ever participated in so it hold a special place in my heart. haha
    good luck!

  9. I hope you enjoy Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist- I loved it and it is a quick read. The Jay Asher books have been on my TBR list for a while. I hope you enjoy your picks! I have a few very short books on my Bout of Books list too.

  14. Great list! I've had Nick and Nora on my tbr list forever and since you said it's only about 200 pages I might have to add it to my Bout of Books list. I'm a slow reader so short books are always a plus for read-a-thons! Good luck with your goals! :-)

    Every one seems to have a copy of Carnival of Souls. It makes me wish I had gone to BEA! Either way I am looking forward to seeing what you think about it. I hear it's really good.

    Good luck! :-)
