Hosted by Bout of Books
Guess who's doing her first read-a-thon!
It's me Claire. I'm doing the Bout of Books Read-a-thon, and I am so excited. i have never done one of thee before, since I'm always too busy or miss it, but I'm actually going to do it this time! YAY! You guys should do it too!
I hope to be able to read 7 novels (one a day), so I put aside 7 books over the past two weeks, ready to get marathon.
The Giver by Lois Lowry
That Summer by Sarah Dessan
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Nick Adams Stories by Ernest Hemingway
Reached by Ally Condie
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
The Game by Terry Schott
I probably won't be super loyal to this list, although I hope to at minimum read 3 of these novels above.
I'm going to update this post daily from August 19th onward so I can keep you guys up to date on how I'm doing. I'll do another post at the end to sum it all up, as well as separate posts for any of the challenges I choose to do.
