Bout of Books Updates

Bout of Books

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 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.  -From the Bout of Books team

  1. Great progress so far! And going to BEA is a great dream ... I think it would be so much fun! :)

  2. My Little Pony is adorable. I didn't know there was a comic book for the show. I may have to pick that up.

    Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon.

    1. Yeah and it's awesome! :rainbow my review will post later this week :)

  3. I also really want to go to BEA, it seems amazing. I hope I can go one day.

    Congratulations with your progress so far!

  4. I was looking at your spine poetry, and Evermore was excellent. I have the next 2 books sitting here waiting for me.

    1. Glad to hear it! I hear a lot of fuss about her as an author. I just bought her other series, Fated yesterday on sale. I heard it's better than the Evermore series...? :D
