Read-a-Thon: Bout of Books 5.0

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

It's that time again! Time to participate in my second Bout of Books read-a-thon! July was pretty much a reading flop for me, as I was spending the month with family and overcoming jetlag once I returned. I plan to make up for this in August by reading as much as I can from August 13-19th. Below you can find out my goals and how to follow my progress.

Time Devoted to Read-a-Thon

As of right now I have a fairly open schedule, though I do most of my reading in the evenings.

My Goals

- To read at least 3 books and try to start a 4th.
- To network with some new bloggers!

The Books

- Finish City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
- Read The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
- Read Fated by Alyson Noel
- Start The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo
- The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore (?)

My Updates

I will post my daily updates and page counts on my Goodreads page, which is also connected to my Twitter, the best means of following my reading. I will also update the template below everyday for the previous reading day. At the very end, you will see a summary post!
