The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th 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. For all Bout of Books 34 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
It’s time for another round of Bout of Books! My stress levels are very high at the moment, so I’m really not sure how successful this round of the readathon will be, but I’d like to at least try. Here’s what I’m thinking in terms of a TBR, which is really just what books I’m currently reading:
Currently reading – audiobooks
I’m currently reading/listening to and really enjoying The Wedding Crasher by Mia Sosa (contemporary romance with fake dating), and have also started listening to the new Casey McQuiston book I Kissed Shara Wheeler (YA contemporary), although I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.
Currently reading – physical books/ebooks
I’m at the very beginning of 3 other books that it would be great to finish or at least make progress on during the readathon: Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher (dark fairytale); Never Have I Ever by Isabel Yap (short stories based on mythology); and Wicked Beauty by Katee Robert (Greek mythology-inspired PNR eARC).
Possible next reads if I finish any of my current ones:
I didn’t set a May TBR, so I’m not exactly sure what books I’d gravitate towards if I do finish any of my current reads (which I’m also not sure about, since I’m really at the beginning of all 5 of them), but these are some possibilities.
