Bout of Books 4.0


I have decided it's time to participate in another readathon :)

This particular one takes place from 12:01 am Monday, May 14 to 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 20. I will be trying to read as many books as I can during this week. Especially since I just signed up for NetGalley and have been approved for quite a few books.

This year I wanted to stay more on track with reading, so I made a reading schedule and picked out books that I wanted to read most and allocated them to certain months. Sadly, I've been a little behind in April with 3 books that went unread. So my leftover books are added to my May books.

My Books for April/May:
  • Jane Was Here by Sarah Kerochan (April)
  • City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (April)
  • City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (April)
  • City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith (May)
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth (YA Goodreads Group - May)
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver (YA Goodreads Group - May)
  • Still Alice by Lisa Genova (Clamhouse Book Club - May)
  • The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry (NetGalley - May)
  • Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep (NetGalley - May)
Because there is still time before May 14th, I may change the list. I am hoping to get at least half my list read during the readathon :)

For more information or to sign up, please click the button at the top of this post OR the button on my sidebar. I will be updating here on my blog, as well as, on my Twitter and Facebook during the readathon.

I've never done a readathon...sounds fun!

I'm excited to hear what you think about some of these books. I'm starting Infernal Devices today too :)

Great list of books you have, I'm reading Insurgent right now, it's good so far. The Cassandra Clare ones are awesome, and so is Delirium. Good luck!

You're the second person I've seen with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on their BoB list. I'm really going to have to check that one out. I have City of Lost Souls on my list for BoB. The Infernal Devices are my favorite Cassie Clare series though, so I know you're gonna love them. Have fun and good luck!

I want to get into the Cassandra Clare books too, I have them on audio. I'm trying to read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter right now, and it's not bad, it's just not grabbing me, so I think I must just not be in the mood. I do want to see the movie, and wanted to read it before then! Good Luck this week!

Christa @ Hooked on Books said...

Great list. I always approve of Lauren Oliver :)

Looks like you're going to have a very Cassandra Clare filled week as well. Enjoy!
