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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd 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 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
So for the rules of the challenge:
You need to recommend 3 books (and only 3 books) that you have read this year that you think should be recognized as something great – something everyone should have on their TBR list for this fall. If you can, say a short little something about why you recommend these books.
I CANNOT ait to read this book! I’ve read a LOT of books from different authors but Leila Sales was one of the few whose books changed my life. And that pretty cover? GRABBY HANDS!
Another book with a pretty cover. Yes, I have a thing for books with pretty covers. Can’t help it, it’s the designer in me. When I found out that Leigh Bardugo was going to release a book this year, I FREAKED OUT, mostly because I had just finished reading Ruin and Rising, the last book in the Grisha trilogy and my heart was pretty vulnerable at that time. I just have one request for this book: MORE STURMHOND pleaseeee!
I finished reading The Night We Said Yes this afternoon and completed my Bout of Books goal. Then I rewarded myself by binge-watching New Girl and Elementary. I’m mighty proud of myself for finishing two books in a week. It might not seem much but my reading pace has been really slow lately and finishing two in a week was a miracle!
