The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 16th and runs through Sunday, August 22nd in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are reading sprints, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional.

It’s time for another round of the Bout of Books readathon! I love this one because it’s low pressure and lasts a full week, so even if I have things going on there’s usually time to get some reading done. This time, I’m really not sure what my reading is going to look like–I’m working Tuesday through Thursday and then leaving on a little trip to Chicago Friday, and won’t return until next Monday night. So with the trip and packing there is a non-zero chance that I’ll end up throwing in the towel halfway through the readathon. But hey, let’s try anyways!
I’m currently reading several books that I’d like to finish and/or make progress on during the readathon:
This weekend I started How the Blessed Live by Susannah M. Smith (fabulism), Fortuna Sworn by K. J. Sutton (fantasy/romance), and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren (contemporary romance).
I also have a few in mind that I’d really like to start in the near future:
Next up on my radar are A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers (science fiction), Battle Royal by Lucy Parker (contemporary romance) and The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang (also contemporary romance).
