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 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th 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 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
It’s time for yet another round of Bout of Books! I have several books checked out from the library, and they’re all due back soon, so I figure this is the perfect opportunity to tackle them! Here’s what I’m hoping to read this week:
- David D. Levine, Arabella of Mars — I’m about 75% done with this one, and I’m liking it a lot! Three words: Regency space opera!
- Julianne Donaldson, Edenbrooke — I’ve already read and enjoyed Donaldson’s other novel Blackmoore, so I’m sure I’ll like this one too!
- Chris Cleave, Everyone Brave Is Forgiven — A World War II novel that caught my eye, although I honestly don’t know much about it. This is the biggest gamble of the bunch, but I’m optimistic.
- Erika Johansen, The Invasion of the Tearling — I quite liked The Queen of the Tearling and have been meaning to read this sequel for a while.
I’ll be chronicling my progress in another post, so stay tuned! Are you participating in Bout of Books this time? If so, what are you planning to read?
