Bout of Book #25 | TBR + Updates

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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th 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 25 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
I love how every Bout of Books has fallen on a busy week. This week is my first week of a new semester (again) however, it's usually just introductions and figuring out the layout of the classes so I think I'll be able to get a bunch of books in.

My goals are simple like the last time, however I'm pushing myself to read more books. Although, some of those books will be either manga, graphic novels, and/or picture books.

  • Read 5 books.
  • Read everyday.
  • Participate in at least 2 challenges.
  • Visit at least 5 blogs participating in the readathon.

I'm giving myself plenty of options like usual. I hope I get to read some novels and not just picture books but whatever happens, happens. 

Small Town Hearts: I've been wanting to read this one for ages. Small towns, food, and romance are what I consider a perfect read.

Impossible Music: This is an ARC about becoming deaf and loving music just the same. There are mixed reviews so far so I have this crazy curiosity to see if I'll love it or hate it.

Emma in the Night: Sisters, disappearances, and a mystery. I'm looking forward to getting lost in this one.

Poseidon: This was an old ARC I never downloaded but apparently I can still review so I decided to pick it up from the library.

Little Witch Academia Vol. 1: I watched the first season of the TV series on Netflix and fell in love. I'm sure this will be a fun, quick read that I'll enjoy.

Little Witch Academia Vol. 2: There are only the two out of three volumes in my library system so I thought why not add this one into the tbr list.

Three Bears in a Boat: I can already tell this one is going to have beautiful illustrations. I'm expecting good things from this one.

Ocean Meets Sky: Another prettily illustrated picture book. It looks to be about imagination more than anything else which should be nice to read about.

Death on Tap: I added this last minute since I thought I would have been done with it. I have one hundred pages left so I should be done with it soon. It's a cozy mystery surrounding brewery and ex-husband drama.

Coming soon!


  1. Good luck! I completely missed that Bout of Books was even happening because work has been SO BUSY the last two weeks, but I hope you're able to accomplish your goals!

  2. I've never participated in something like this! Good luck and have fun!

  3. I like all the books you added on your list. Looks an interesting mix!

  4. Good luck! I always want to do more read-a-thons, but I don't usually have the time. LOL I like that you have a mix of books to choose from.


  5. Good luck with the start of the new semester and the Bout of Books. Hope you get lots of reading in! :)

  6. Impossible Music is one I want to read, so I'll be curious to see what you think! I enjoyed Small Town Hearts even though I did have a few quibbles. I hope these are all a hit for you, and that you reach your goals!
