Bout of Books Read-a-thon! Recap

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 12:01 am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th 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 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.  -From the Bout of Books team.
This is the first time that I have participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon, since I am new to blogging, but I thought I would give it a try.
I usually read 4-5 books a week so I’m setting my goal at 9 books, although some of them are between 200 and 300 pages.  It’s also the kids’ first full week of school next week so we’ll see how it goes.
Here’s my tentative list:
  1. Sophie & Carter by Chelsea Fine (actually 150 pages, but I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile)
  2. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
  3. Private #8 – Revelation by Kate Brian
  4. Private #9 – Paradise Lost by Kate Brian
  5. Private #10 – Suspicion by Kate Brian
  6. Private #11 – Scandal by Kate Brian
  7. Private #12 – Vanished by Kate Brian
  8. Private #13 – Ominous by Kate Brian
  9. Six Years – Harlan Coben

This might be a little adventurous but we’ll see.
