Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 10 Goals and Updates

BoB10-200x200

So, here goes my first read-a-thon ever! I’m really excited about this and I hope I can achieve my goals. I’ll be updating every day how much I’ve read (that’s kind of a given) and my thoughts, so basically if anything stands out and I feel that I absolutely need to share with people, haha. 

I Will Devote to Reading…:

I mainly read at night before going to sleep, so I’m going to force myself to read a bit through the day for this as well. My goal is 50-100 pages every day, no matter what.

My Goals:

  • Read at least 1 hour or 50-100 pages per day.
  • Read 2-3 books for that week.
  • To read 700-900 pages throughout the week.
  • Write 1-2 reviews during the week.
  • Participate in at least 2 Twitter chats.
  • Participate in 1-2 daily challenges.

Books to Read:

8177852

  • Airel (The Airel Saga #1) by Aaron Patterson on Kindle (186 pages)

 

#7 Dime Store Magic

  • Dime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld #1) by Kelley Armstrong on Trade Paperback (416 pages)

 

#6 Reign of Blood

  • Reign of Blood (Reign of Blood #1) by Alexia Purdy on Kindle (319 pages)

 

Updates:

I made a separate posts for challenges because some challenges requires you to write more then what you can fit in a Tweet and I need to be able to link to them. This also keeps everything nice and clean, plus It’s easier to find things which I like.

About The Dark Reading Room

I LOVE reading and I have hundreds of awesome books on my bookshelf. I started blogging so I could connect with like-minded people and share my thoughts on what I read with others. I’m pretty open minded when it comes to reading, I enjoy reading anything like; true crime, biographies and so on but my favourite genre is YA paranormal books. Non-book related things: I’m a metalhead, I love going to concerts, some of my favourite TV shows are Supernatural, True Blood, Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Firefly... I’m a hardcore gamer and play games like COD, Halo, Gears of War, Borderlands, Final Fantasy, The Last of Us, Dead Rising and much more!

  1. I like how your nick-name is Jo. Mine is that as well! What books did you choose? I’m so excited to be trying this out for the first time! I’ve never done a read-a-thon before!

    • Sweet, Jo’s rock! Haha I chose Airel by Aaron Patterson, Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong and Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy. It’s super exciting, there’s so much that goes on so I get overwhelmed a bit ha but It’s fun. I’ve never done a read-a-thon either, or anything blog related until recently so I’m completely lost! Are you enjoying yourself so far?
