Bout of Books Read-a-thon: Goals and Updates

Bout of Books
This is it, Bout of Books Read-a-thon has officially started! Are you participating?
Summer has flown by and I have not read as much as I would like, so a Read-a-thon is the perfect way to end the summer and hopefully enjoy some good books.
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. - From the Bout of Books team
My Goals

  • Read at least 5 books (Only made it to 3.67)
  • Write reviews for all books read (Only 1)
  • Participate in at least one Twitter Chat 
  • Participate in at least 2 Challenges
*I will be updating this post with my progress through the challenge*

You have so many great books on your list! I am DYING to read Asylum. I love the mixture of old photographs and a chilling story. I hope it's as great as it looks :)

Wow, great progress! You are kicking butt. If you get through Covet and then take on Monsters and finish it, you will be my hero. Monsters is a monster. When I saw it, I actually thought it was more than one book. Good luck the rest of the week.

@ Lisa I have an ebook, so I didn't realize it was 688 pages until I checked. I am going to try and finish it before the end but we will see :)

It looks like you're doing pretty good. Only two more books to go to meet your challenge. I probably won't write reviews for all of mine until after the read-a-thon is over, but maybe I'll get lucky and get all the books read I want to and get reviews up for them. :) Good luck!
