Bout of Books #24

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 24 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Time for the first Bout of Books read-a-thon in 2019! Here's what I'm hoping to read this week (but of course, I'll likely change my mind and read a bunch of other books instead, ha!):



Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
The Marriage Bargain by Stephanie Dees
Meet the Sky by McCall Hoyle
My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren
No Safe Place by Sherri Shackelford

* = started reading before January 7th


Throughout the read-a-thon week, I'll be posting here, on Twitter, and on Litsy (@hes7) with my progress. (Feel free to join the reading fun by signing up over at Bout of Books!)

Happy reading!
