Bout of Books 5.0 Goals

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
 
So I participated in Bout of Books 4.0 and I really enjoyed it so when it was announced that there was a date for the next one, I quickly signed up. I’m really looking forward to this week and hope that it is just as good as last time!
 
Not sure what Bout of Books is?
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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th in whatever time zone you are in.  Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week.  There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team

With all of that in mind, this post is to outline my goals for the week! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you want to look at it, I booked a spontaneous holiday trip for this week last week and so I will, on two days, have less reading time but should on two days have more reading time. So hopefully that will counter-balance itself out and I’ll manage to achieve my goals, but who knows!

Goals
Anyway, without rambling more, here are my goals!

  • Read at least four books
  • To meet a fair few new book bloggers
  • To comment on five blogs each day – if I can!
  • To participate in two challenges
  • To go to at least one twitter chat!

Books
And the books I am thinking about reading include;

   

  

Turf by John Lucas
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
Afterlife by Eric Edstrom
The History Keepers: Circus Maximus by Damian Dibben
Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon
How I Found You by Gabriella Lepore
My Fairytale Life by Heather M. White

Knowing me, these will change throughout the week but I will make sure to keep it all updated! These are also all review copy books and will be helping with my Review Copy Cleanup month as well so wooo! Go me!
