Bout-of-Books Read-a-thon Goals!

Bout of Books  This here's my reading list for the Bout of Books Read-a-thon that STARTS TOMORROW GAH! I'm ready! I've been preparing with brain exercises and finger crunches and nap marathons. I figure if I get all my sleep in BEFORE the a-thon starts I can go without as much for the week. That's how it works. Right? Right.  ON TO THE BOOKS!
I picked 5 books that I want to read this week.
The best books to read for any a-thon, in my opinion, are easy to read, relatively short and will keep your attention. So I picked a graphic novel, 3  not so long contemps and one slightly massive dystopian.  To finish all these books will mean I will have to read a minimum of 213 pages PER DAY. Challenging? Yes.  Do-able? I think so.

1. Vampire Academy Graphic Novel (Richelle Mead)  144 pages
2. The Disenchantments (Nina LaCour) 307 pages
3. A Really Awesome Mess (Trish Cook & Brendan Halpin)   275 pages
4. The Darkest Minds (Alexandra Bracken)  488 pages
5. Sloppy Firsts (Megan McCafferty)  280 pages

Total Pages to Read: 1494

Other Goals:
Participate in 2 challenges
Write a review for every book read (This will be the most challenging for me!)
This is my first week-long read-a-thon but I'm excited to not only read a crapton but also participate in some chats and challenges! I am BRAND new to Twitter. Like I just created a twitter account a couple weeks ago. Still getting the hang of it, haven't posted all that much. But I'm officially part of the Twitterverse. Now I just need an iphone and I'll feel caught up with the technology.
Anyhoo, if anybody out there is interested, my Twitter name is @ElizzabethK  
If you're participating in the read-a-thon, I'd love to know what you're planning on reading! Leave a comment or hit me up on Twitter!


  1. Yay Vampire Academy! I haven't heard of the rest, but A Really Awesome Mess is a fantastic title! ;) Good luck this week and have a fantastic time! :D

  2. I'm always happy to see Sloppy Firsts on reading lists and TBR piles. Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling series is my favorite series of all time. I read those as they were published and had to wait a year or years for the next book to be published. AND The Disenchantments is among one of my favorite books too. I hope that you like them!

    Good luck!

    1. I've heard great things about the Jessica Darling series and figured it'd be an easy read for the a-thon. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. A Really Awesome Mess was a really fast read and pretty good!
    I'm doing 200+ pages a day as well, so good luck on that! I hope you make your goals!

  4. Hehe " Nightmare on Bookstreet" I love your blog name!! :D Your book choices look awesome. Ill have to come back and see what you think about the Darkest Minds. I've heard good and bad. lol Good luck on your goals.
