Bout of Books 2.0 Starting Line

Bout of Books 2

Button created by TaraSG

 

Holy crap guys!  It’s here!  It’s finally here!  I’m excited to get this show on the road.  I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to read on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (absolutely insane work schedule) but, I’ll definitely try to make up for it on all the other days.  Here we go…

 

Time Devoted to Reading

With the exception of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I’m going to try and be a lean, mean reading machine.

 

My Goals

I want to try to read at least 3 books.

 

Books To Read

  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • Black Heart Loa by Adrian Phoenix
  • You Dropped a Blonde on Me by Dakota Cassidy

 

Updates

I’m going to do my updates on this post and on Twitter via the #insixwords and #boutofbooks hashtags.

  1. We must coordinate our reading schedules for Mara. Not until Thursday, at least, I am guessing?

  2. If you don't make your goal, we will hunt you down and force you to watch day time television. He he he. Ok I also have three books that I plan to tackle. It's going to be hard with the Halloween weekend baring down. I will be cheering you on.
