Bout of Books Read-A-Thon Goal Post/ UPDATES


YAY A READ-A-THON!! I get so excited for read-a-thon's, because i read a lot of good books really fast, thus making me proud of myself, get to make new friends, and  of course there are usually giveaways.

The Bout of Books Read-A-Thon's purpose isn't to focus on giveaways, but to focus on pushing ourselves to read more books and that is just what i need, because i am very behind on my list of book i have for review. There is still time to sign up so go sign up NOW  <--Click there

My goal during this week long read-a-thon is to read 5 books, with 4 being the minimum. I really hope i can achieve this, or i would feel happy lol

Here are the novels i hope to read:
Torn By Dean Murray (for review)
Broken By Dean Murray (for review)
The Mediator: Shadowland By Meg Cabot
Darkride By Laura Bradley Rede (for review)
The Girl in the Steel Corset By Kady Cross
Significance By Shelly Crane (for review)

Hope you will join me!!

Each day i will also be posting my updates all in this post to keep in organized so also look out for those =D
