Bout of Books Read-a-Thon, May 13th-May 19th

Who?: I'm doing it! Will YOU?

What?: "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, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team."

Where?: At home! During lunch breaks! During commutes! And so on!

When?: Monday, May 13th to Sunday, May 19th.

How?: I'll tell you right now that I am going to slow my roll when it comes to posting reviews. My goal is to read four books. I'm thinking that at least one of those will be an audio book, so that I can listen while cooking, commuting to and from work, and when doing things other things. Three of the books I am considering (mainly because I have some library returns to make) are:

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy series, #1) by

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn’t just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever."
