Bout of Books 12 Sign-Up

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, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
IT'S BOUT OF BOOKS TIME! I love participating in this readathon, it's so much fun pushing myself to read more than one or two books a week and seeing how much other people read and what they read.

It's a pity this didn't occur a week before as I'm starting school tomorrow so I won't be able to read the whole day BUT it is only the first week and I don't think I'll have that much work so YAY!

Those who run Bout of Books have decided they're not going to have a goals link-up as they want people to not feel pressurised to read a certain amount and although I like that idea, I would quite like to set me some goals!

I'm not going to put a set TBR because, as you guys know, I'm a huge mood-reader and I probably won't stick to it but here are the books I'm thinking of reading!
Kingdom of the Wicked (Skulduggery Pleasant, #7)The Lost Art of World Domination (Skulduggery Pleasant, #1.5)Gold, Babies and the Brothers Muldoon (Skulduggery Pleasant #2.5)Tanith Low in the Maleficent Seven (Skulduggery Pleasant, #7.5)The End of the World (Skulduggery Pleasant #6.5)

Hopefully. 4 of these are novellas (I use that term lightly, Tanith Low in the Maleficent Seven is nearly 300 pages and The End of the World is over 100 pages) but I'm hoping I'll get through all of these, I probably won't but I would like to.

I'm so excited to participate! If you guys do too, let me know and we can update and encourage each other via Twitter! :)

  1. THEY ARE SO PRETTYFUL! The covers are quite creepy, aren't they? WAIT TILL YOU READ BOOK 4, IT'LL BLOW YOUR MIND. DM me once you've finished and we can flail copiously.

  2. I've always wanted to participate in Bout of Books but they're always on when I'm busy with uni or something else! I hope you get to read most of your tbr and have fun!

  3. Bout of Books! Gah, I really wanted to do it but it falls at such a bad time for me (yet again). Have fun though! And look at you with all this Skulduggery Pleasant love. You kind of put me to shame. I've read like..one? :O

  4. Hi Kyra!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR! Is it bad that I've never participated in one of these? The idea of a read-a-thon freaks me out but best of luck and go you! My sister is obsessed with this series, hence why I had to wait 4 hours in line to meet him. Argh! Hope you enjoy it, happy reading!
