Bout of Books 14 goals + daily updates

Bout of Books

Hey Guys!

So I’m posting this last minute but I wasn’t 100% what I wanted my goals to be.

I’ve decided since this will probably be the last readathon I’ll be able to participate in before school starts up again that I should push myself.

So here’s the goals I came up with

  1. Read a total of 7 books.
  2. Visit at least 20 blogs this week.
  3. Participate in at least 3 challenges
  4. Try to join in a chat.
  5. Write some blog posts.

Okay so I think I can do it guys! This week I have no plans so I think I can manage it.

Below are some of the books I’m thinking about reading this week. I’ve already started Falling Kingdoms and Crown of Midnight so I will for sure be reading those this week.

  1. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
  2. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
  3. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
  4. DUFF by KodyKeplenger
  5. Mad About the Hatter by Dakota Chase

  1. Good luck with reading your seven books! I know I’m gonna try hard to complete my list.
    I was suppose to read The Duff for a bookclub, but I forgot to buy it oops! I hope you like it!


  2. I hope you liked Crown of Midnight!! I love that installment in the series! So good! And I’ve heard really great things about Falling Kingdoms, so I hope that you are enjoying that one! 372 pages is a lot, you are doing awesome!


    1. Thank you. I loved COM I’m dying to pick up the next one but I’m buddy reading it with some friends and they aren’t all done with the first two. I’m almost done with Falling Kingdoms and it’s really good. Thanks I’m trying to get through the bigger ones first.


      1. Getting through the bigger books first is a good strategy, and it seems to be working well for you! I hope you and your friends like Heir of Fire when you do read it! Can’t wait for Queen of Shadows in September.


  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You’ve had a great start to #boutofbooks.
    I’ve only read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas but I thought it was amazing. I’m sure The Crown of Midnight is too.
    Did you manage to make the first tweet chat? They’re either during my work hours or at like 3am, which I just can never wake up for, so I tend to miss them. I too want to visit lots of blogs 🙂 Readathons are just a fun way to connect!
    Good luck for the rest of the week!


    1. Thanks! I’m loving the Throne of Glass series. I haven’t read Court of Thorns and Roses but I hope to soon.
      I didn’t make it to the chat either. I was at work! I should be able to make it to the one on Saturday though.
      I love connecting with new blogs during readathons. I love making new friends.


  4. You’re off to a fabulous start!
    Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore has been sitting in my stack for a few months, really need to get to it soon.
    Good luck with your goals!


    1. I really liked it. It was interesting. I think I would of liked it more if I hadn’t just read COM.
      I’m a huger Alice in Wonderland fan. So I had to pick something inspired by it up for the readathon.
      Thank you!


  5. You’re doing awesome!! Keep up the great work! 😀 Thank you for visiting my blog and being so supportive. You’re a star! Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon. I’m cheering you on! 😀 Happy reading!
