Bout of Books 8.0

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - The Bout of Books team

I love the Bout of Books readathons, and I'm so happy to be taking part in another one! The timing is perfect because I need to get some more reading done before the start of my fall semester. Monday through Thursday, I'm hoping to spend a LOT of time reading. But I'm leaving for NYC on Friday, so I don't know how much reading I'll get done towards the end of the week - because of the time difference, my week will be 6 hours longer (ha!), and I'll definitely be reading while travelling, but once I'm in New York, I will barely have time to read.

Anyways, I'm hoping to get 7 of these books read this week:
  • Cherry Money Baby by John M Cusick
  • Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles
  • Tandem by Anna Jarzab
  • Just One Day by Gayle Forman
  • Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
  • Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E Lockhart
  • Roomies by Sara Zarr
  • Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott

Books read:

1. Cherry Money Baby by John M Cusick
2. Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles
3. Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando

Asides from reading, I will be participating in the first Twitter chat (can't do the second one because it's the middle of the night here or the third one because I'll be in NYC), which I'm really looking forward to.

I will be updating this post with my progress, and I will also be updating on Twitter.

Are you participating in the read-a-thon? What are you planning on reading?
