Throwing My Hat In The Bout Of Books Ring

So, it’s been a crazy busy weekend and Monday my stupid web host was down, same with most of today! Therefore, I am signing up for Bout of Books quite late. I am soooo excited! I love doing this readathon and for me it’s more important than ever to get these ARCs read and passed on before I move.

Here’s the blurb that’s from BOUT OF BOOKS:

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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 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 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

 Here’s my goals:

  • Read at least 6 books during this marathon.
  • Write up reviews for all of those books.
  • Visit at least 2 blogs per day that I am participating.

And the books I want to read:

Orleans by Sherri Smith
Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood
Templar by Jordan Mechner
…and I am just going to leave the other three open.

About April (Books&Wine)

April is in her 30s and created Good Books And Good Wine. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and toddler, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood.


  1. Better late than never! Glad you could join us. I’m only on my second book so far, but hoping to get more reading in tomorrow.

  2. Late to the game April but it’s gonna be worth it! I too was late but with NZ being ahead I’m really 12 hours or so behind 🙂
    Day 1 down & I read under 200 pages. I’m gonna knock out the rest of this book & one other that I had already started & hopefully have a new one ready for tomorrow (day 3!).
    Wish you the best & get reading #boutofbooks

  3. I love the Cahill Witch Chronicles and Jessica is fantastic, so down to earth and love to correspond with her fans/book bloggers, so I also love to sing praises for her wonderful series 😀

    My BoB updates.
