Yesterday I posted about Bout of Books 15 and my goals for the readathon. The readathon starts tomorrow the 4th, and I’ve set aside a stack of books to choose from throughout the week. Because I’m a big mood reader, when I do readathons I typically pick out more books than I plan to actually read so that I’m not stuck with a specific set of books. I’ve found that this really helps keep me out of reading slumps, and it gives me some extra books in case I surpass my reading goals.
Here are the books I picked out for the week:
- The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
- One + One = Blue by M.J. Auch
- Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
- Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
- Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
- Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
My goal is to read four of these books. The monthly #AYEARATHON readathon is also this week, and the theme for January is benchwarmers. Benchwarmers are books that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile. Four of the six books I chose have been on my TBR for at least 6 months, and the other two books (Just Visiting & Tell the Wind and Fire) are from my most recent book haul.
Are you participating in one of the many readathons this week? What books are on your TBR?
