Bout of Books 5.0 - Goals & Updates

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

I had a lot of fun with Bout of Books last time, so I'm signing up again!

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 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th 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 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. -From the Bout of Books 5.0 team

So, what to read?  Well I've a few books I need to finish next week:
Burn by Heath Gibson finished before 13 Aug
Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman finished before 13 Aug
The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin finished 18 Aug
And if I get through those
Speechless by Hannah Harrington finished 14 Aug
Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
Added on 12 Aug
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
Frozen by Mary Casanova finished 17 Aug
Added on 18 Aug
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green finished 18 Aug

Wish me luck!

Monday Challenge - Literary BFF @ AuggieTalk

Oh my literary BFF - wow that made me think for a while! I'm going with Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood. I've always had a lot of male friends (I have three younger brothers, so maybe I just relate better to boys?!). I love his sense of humour, it matches mine! And I'd totally be down for some ghostie hunting!
