Bout of Books #26

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, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 26 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Time to read-a-thon again! Since my fall semester does not start until next week, I have nothing to do but read this week! It's a great feeling, and I anticipate getting plenty of reading done. Here's my TBR (though I also anticipate reading completely different books, too):

All Made Up by Kara Isaac
Becoming Us by Robin Jones Gunn
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Hood by Stephen R. Lawhead
No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky
Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews
A Sparkle of Silver by Liz Johnson
Sweet on You by Becky Wade
A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan

* = started reading before August 19th

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

What a great week! I spent a lot of time racing audiobook due dates, so I didn't stick to my TBR so well... But I'm happy to have squeezed in so much reading before the start of the fall semester. Here's a final look at what I finished:


  1. Good job in finishing 2 books! Night at the Opera and Beneath an Italian Sky look interesting. I have to see if my library has these.

  2. I just finished Gods of Jade and Shadow and enjoyed it! Hope you get to it! Good luck!

  3. Wow!! Keep the momentum going, you are doing great!!

  4. 5 books is AWESOME! I have Fix Her Up in physical format and I really want to get to it soon. I have heard so many good things about it!

  5. Two-ish days left in the readathon! Keep up the momentum & have a great weekend! :)
