Bout of Books Readathon

Since I wasn’t able to participate in the 24 hour readathon this weekend, I decided to join in the Bout of Books Readathon hosted by On a Book Bender. The readathon runs from today, October 24th, to Saturday, October 29th.

Since I am crazy busy with work and school, I’m keeping my goals light so that if I actually manage them I’ll feel all kinds of happy and accomplished! And if I go over, it’s just icing on the cake. I plan to read any time I am not at work, in class, or doing homework. I also plan to not use reading as an excuse to not do my homework (*sigh*). Breaks at work shall be spent reading!

My Book Pile:
In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton
The Pearl Wars by Nick James
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Vacation by Matthew Costello
The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

I will be keeping all my updates in this post, and borrowing On a Book Bender’s format since it’s so easy to read an manage. But, I’ve added a page count and a live update instead of the #insixwords option.

  1. Evidently Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a book I need to put on my ever growing TBR list. It seems a lot of people are reading it during Bout-of-Books. Good luck and thumbs up for not skipping the homework!

    • I’m excited to start it – I’ve heard good things! Knowing me, I’ll try to skip the homework anyway =P That’s what happens when you’re 24 and still doing homework, haha.
