My Last READATHON of Summer: #BoutofBooks 14 TBR and Goals

BoB14-200x200

Hey bookworms! Hope your weekend went well! Sorry I haven’t been active these last few days… I have been running into issues with school and finding out all these issues has been from the internet. So hence my avoiding my computer… Figures my last semester of my undergrad that I tried so hard to make run smoothly did the opposite. On that note I was looking for something fun to cheer me up! Now what is fun for a book blogger? A Readathon of course! I had been looking for one for August and stumbled across it when I saw a TBR for it on youtube. I have done the Bout of Books before, and had lots of fun before, so why not give it another go! If you don’t know what Bout of Books is:

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 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Now that I’ve given you the neccessary info, so you can join the fun! Let’s decide what my goals and books to read will be because this is totally last minute! *blushes slightly*

Bout of Books Goals

So goals! Something I have never been the best at keeping! Let’s face it I set goals and then get distracted from them easily… I figured though setting goals will get me back in the school set of mind because I am going to try to be better at time management my last semester! So that being said I will have a goal of 5 books AND keeping track daily of how many pages I read daily. That is not going to include the audiobooks because the ones I do listen to most of them I do not have physical copies of. I will list the number of chapters listened to though! So what will I try to read this week? I will list a few that are on my mind now:

 Tentative TBR

1. Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories

I am close to the end of this book, so if I don’t finish it tonight I want to finish it tonight. I definitely want to finish it by Monday!

2. Princess Mia by Meg Cabot

Princess Mia

I have 80ish pages left and since it is almost Midnight this will probably be the first book I finish. I can really relate to Mia in this one, so I can already guess that I will probably give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

3. Forever Princess by Meg Cabot

Forever Princess

I am almost finished reading Princess Mia, so why not add this one onto my TBR. Thank god I found Scribd. I really recommend this site to bookworms on a budget. No I am not paid to promote them. I just post about them a lot because I wish I would’ve found them sooner, and hopefully I will help another bookworm do so!

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and The Dawn

Another library book due this week! I need to finish this by Friday, so I know this will be the one I for sure finish during this readathon!

5. Vampire Game Vol 1 by Judal

Vampire Game Vol 1

Gotta have a manga to break things up, so hopefully it will be a good reason to finish this book!

6. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

I am falling back in love with this book again! I am traveling through this book which is great because I am going stir crazy not having been anywhere during the break. I am slow on it because I got distracted by Mia’s problems but I drift to it through out the day

7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

A childhood read if I get too weighed down or momentarily bored with the others. Plus I’d rather go to Hogwarts than worry about my school stress!

8. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

This will most likely be my next audio book read after I finish Thanks for the Memories. I am really hoping to love this book although if I do not love the narrator I will switch to the copy of the e-book that I own.

9. Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

This is on my monthly TBR and I really at least want to get into this book! I miss Clay and Elena!

10. Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

Red's Untold Tale

Guess what Bookworms?! I am happy to say I got approved for an ARC on Netgalley. I also figured out how to get it to send to my kindle apps! I feel so smart to have figured that out! I really am horribly untech savvy. Which was why I was beyond nervous to request it, but I figured it out! Like my mom says to the kids at her school (she’s a secretary) “Kiss your brain” I was so proud that I bested the tech in my life! Anywho I am beyond shocked I was approved! I am huge Oncer fan, so I really want to try and get some of this done by school.

Yes my bookworm friends, I know I have my goal set at 5! I am such a mood reader lately, so to have options lately is my best option. Not including the fact is I am a book polygamist as well! So that is it for now bookworms! Are you participating in this readathon? Let me know and link me your TBR’s. If you want to see updates as I read you can follow me on Twitter @CKReads. Good luck with your reading week, and especially if you’re already back to school! Happy reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors that have Made Me Spend the Most Money

Hey bookworms! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the lovely blog The Broke and The Bookish. Now I wasn’t sure I was going to do this topic today, but seeing the other posts made me curious. Curious … Continue reading

My Ambiguous August TBR!

August TBR

Hey Bookworms! It is finally time for my TBR! I have been thinking over it for a while because I didn’t read many of the books from My July TBR… So the title for this TBR will hopefully make up for it because I discovered I have become a more of a mood reader lately. I want to read one thing one minute and another the next! So my TBR isn’t going to be too ambitious because I start my last semester on the 24th. I know school will only take up the last week of August, but better safe than sorry. So any who, let’s get started and talk about the books that are on my mind now!

My August TBR

1.  The Rest of The Princess Diaries Series by Meg Cabot

Princess on the Brink Princess Mia Forever Princess Royal Wedding

Hope you guys don’t mind the variety of covers! I am currently listening to Princess on the Brink and it already has me giggling. I am reading this series through my Scribd subscription which when on a book buying ban or a bad library is worth it! They don’t have Princess Mia and Forever Princess on audiobook though, so those will be read through the e-books. Finishing the last the Royal Wedding via audiobook once more and I can’t wait to see how all the characters will continue to grow.

2. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan Queen

I plan on starting and finishing this book this weekend. It is due next week, so I want to get it done this time!

3. Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon

I know I know I have had this book on my last 2 tbrs! I will finish it by Friday though because that is when it is due! I am going to get back to reading it after this post.

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and The Dawn

Another book I plan on starting this one this weekend too because it’s due on the 18th. It is a little big, so the sooner I start it the quicker I can get it done because I can’t renew it because other people are waiting for it.

5. Hot Blooded by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

Hot Blooded

Another book I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but I definitely need to read it soon! It is a library book and sadly it is not mine to take my time with…

6. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

Another one I haven’t gotten to this summer, but I really want to try it! It is getting a lot of love this summer and I want to love it too!

7. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

I want to read Reawakened Houck’s new book when it comes out, but I want to get reacquainted with her writing. I also really miss Kishan! I want to travel through this book too.

8. Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

I want to continue my reread of this series as a listen. I want to reconnect with these girls who I connect with.

9. Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott

Fire and Flood

I bought the e-book last month and I am very excited to read it. The premise has me very curious, but I hope it is fast paced!

10. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I’m hoping reading this will make my last semester of college less scary.. I mean if Harry faced Voldemort at 11; I can handle the “real” world right? I hope so…

11. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Nightshade

Honestly I am craving a reread and a strong female alpha, so I want to reread this. Plus it is one of my favorite series.

12. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Blood and Starlight

Another e-book I got on sale and I am super excited to continue this series! I adored the first book, so I cannot wait to see what happens next!

13.Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories

I am dying to continue on my Ahern kick! This is one of the audiobooks available through Scribd and I need more Ahern!

14.  Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

Another one that has been lingering on TBR too, but I know if I don’t get it done by the end of summer. It will have to wait until a break.

Well bookworms! That is some of the books I hope to read, but who knows if I will stick to it. My goal for the month as far as the number of books I want to read is 14. I’ve already read 3 books, so I think I can reach it! Have you read any of these? What is on your TBR? What is your monthly goal? Do rereads tear out your heart like they did the first time? Feel free to let me know in the comments! Happy Reading!
