Read-A-Thon/ Bout of Books 11.0 (Goals)

Bout of Books
Next week I plan on taking part in the Bout of Books 11.0 read-a-thon which will be the last one of the year I believe until January.
With any read a thon you really have to set realistic goals because if you make your goals to high and demanding you will fail which I always do because I always forget that real life happens that you have no control over.
Here is a list of books that I am hoping to get through this week:
To break up the reading of books I have a few manga’s I borrowed from the library & that I currently own that I want to read as well and they are:
  • Summer Wars 1 & 2
  • Courtney Crumrin – Vol 1 and the night things, Vol 2 The coven of Mystics, Vol 3 The twilight Kingdom, Vol 4 monstrous holiday, Vol 5 the witch next door
  • Raina Telgemeier’s Drama, Smile & Sisters

With every read a thon there is daily challenges so I am hoping to complete those daily as well as do daily up dates.

I am also setting a goal to comment on 10 new bloggers post daily.

I also want to participate in some twitter chats if the timing is good.

So those are my goals, have I bitten off more then I can chew? Check back next week to find out.


  1. Good luck! I’m excited for it and hope to at least finish 2 books and visit lots of blogs!

  2. I have to agree about setting your goals too high. I used to say I would read like 5 or 6 books and then I would never get to that many and then I would be very disappointed that I didn’t reach my goal. So now I only try to read like 3 or 4 and if I go past that then I am super happy. Good luck with everything. I look forward to checking back in with you to see how you are doing during the week.

  3. Great advice to keep things realistic. Happy reading and good luck 😀


  4. I’ve heard good things about Savage Blue. Hope you like it! Nice idea to alternate with manga’s. Those always give a sense of accomplishment! Good luck, Cindy!

    • I have taken part in several read a thons and alot of bloggers really recommend breaking up your reading with novellas, etc and I am going to do that with the manga’s. I think it will be good to break it up.

  5. Good luck on your reading! Your goals are great. I’d love to see your reviews for The Savage Blue and The Vast & Brutal Sea!

    • Thanks I think I will need it LOL I am trying not to set a high goal so if I can read half of that I will be so happy. Hopefully I will post reviews after the read a thon

  6. Good Luck on your goals ! I read the first book in Zoroda Cordova’s series…can’t believe the others are out already, can’t wait to see what you think.

    • I read the first one too and really enjoyed it. As for the second one I picked it up at BEA in 2013 and never got to it so now is the perfect time since book three is coming out…marathon reading 🙂
