Bout of Books 17 TBR and Goals

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

One of the great things about the Bout of Books read-a-thon is that goals and TBR's aren't a requirement - the idea is just to read more books than you normally would. Since we actually like having a TBR to motivate us we decided to put one together - but we are not going to force ourselves to stick to it! We just want to enjoy the Read-a-Thon and read! 

Ann:
I am aiming to read 6 books this week.
Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)Lord of the Flies
SandRider (TodHunter Moon, #2)Conquest (The Chronicles of the Invaders, #1)EmpireDominion (The Chronicles of the Invaders, #3)
The first series I want to read is the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, Clare loves this series and I am looking forward to it. I am currently reading Lord of the Flies for school and would like to finish it this week. Sandrider is one I have had on my TBR for a while and Dominion is a review book so I have to read the first two books first. 

Clare:
I am aiming to read a total of 8 books this week. I am in a bit of a reading slump but I also have a lot of free time this week so hopefully I can get a lot of reading done.
The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)
Beginnings: Obsidian & Onyx (Lux, #1-2)Consequences: Opal & Origin (Lux, #3-4)Opposition (Lux, #5)Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
The Raven Boys series just came in at the library and I am very excited to read these after hearing nothing but good things about them. I then want to re-read the first four books in the Lux series so that I can read the fifth book Opposition. And then finally I want to read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock which is another library book.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading
