Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

What is that you say? You just finished a read-a-thon yesterday, Jess?

Yes! You are correct, my friends! I did, in fact, just finish my first ever read-a-thon. It was the Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-Thon, and you can read all about my progress HERE.

So now, here I am, ready for my next one!!

The Bout-of-Books Read-a-Thon is hosted by the lovely Amanda of On a Book Bender, so automatically I was interested. But having never done a read-a-thon before, I was hesitant to join. I thought, let me just follow it and see what all it entails. Then I went up and joined that other one of a whim…and thought, why not join this one, too! So, here are the details:

Time Devoted to Reading

I will read all the days of the read-a-thon. The amount of hours may vary because of work and my kiddo, but most likely it will be anywhere between 1 – 6 hours each day.

My Goals

Read at least 3 books, but hoping for 6. :)
Listen to as much of my audiobook as possible.
Have fun interacting with my fellow participants!

Books To Read
I’m going to read all review books!!! All Romance, except for Last Breath, which is YA. Here they are:

Audiobook: Unraveled by Gena Showalter

 

1. Last Breath by Rachel Caine
2. Christmas in Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis
(This one’s two books in one.)
3. Only His by Susan Mallery
4. Savor the Danger by Lori Foster
5. Lord of the Vampires by Gena Showalter
6. The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark
