Bout of Books 18 | Stating My Intentions

bob18Yes, it’s that time again, it’s the Bout of Books readathon! Bout of Books is such a low-key, friendly, and fun readathon that I always look forward to its next round.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 2nd and runs through Sunday, January 8th 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 18 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Last time I participated was back in August during Bout of Books 17 (you can see my TBR and Daily Updates from then, if you’re interested) and even as that round finished, I couldn’t wait for the next Bout of Books. Not only is it very low-key and low-commitment as a readathon, the daily challenges aren’t too tricky or time-consuming, meaning maximum time can be devoted to reading and connecting with fellow Bout of Books-ers! I certainly hope to get more involved and chat more during this round of Bout of Books, as well as completing the daily challenges.

However, first things first, let me state my intentions towards this readathon. I have constructed a very loose TBR stack to choose from, since I am mostly a mood-reader, and hopefully I have covered enough genres and formats to also always have some form of book I want to read “to hand” at any given moment during the week.

So, that’s my TBR to choose from for Bout of Books 18. I’ll be updating a Daily Updates post with my progress throughout the readathon and I hope that it will well and truly kick off my reading for 2017.
