Goals for Bout of Books 4.0

So I just discovered this marvelous thing known as Bout of Books 4.0 while I was catching up with my bookish friends on Twitter. I've now promised myself to get online more often as I seem to miss the important things, lol!

Anyway, Bout of Books is a "low pressure" readathon, and, being the readathon junkie that I am, I'm all for this one!! It lasts from Monday, May 14th at 12:01 am (your time zone) to Sunday, May 20th 11:59 pm. The goal is to read more than you would normally read during a one-week period. So let the challenge begin!!!!

Here are my goals for Bout of Books 4.0--

(Finish) Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

I'm going this read-a-thon :) and Looking for Alaska is on my list for this week too ^^. I can't believe that I haven't read this book since I've heard amazing things about it.
Good luck !

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
