Bout of Books 10.0 Goals and TBR.

The Bout of Books read-a-thons are some of my favorite times of the year. I have been waiting a few months for this one to roll around and it's finally here tomorrow. But this time it didn't come at the best time...I'm going to be getting married this week! While I'm excited, there's still so much to do and that day of I don't think I'll be able to get much reading in, if any at all. However, it seems when I have tons to do, I usually get more reading done, so maybe I won't do so bad this week.

What are my goals? In past Bout of Books read-a-thons, I've set a goal to read at least 150-200 pages a day. This time I'm going to try to read an average of 150 pages a day. I'm also going to try to finish at least three books. One of the books I finish must be City of Glass. I put this one down and haven't picked it up because I've been distracted by other books, but I want to continue to get caught up with this series in anticipation for The City of Heavenly Fire release. 

What am I planning on reading? Here's the stack I'm going to be choosing from.


The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
To All the Boy's I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

I know there's no way I will finish all of these, but these are some books I've been wanting to read that I could end up reading. I could also end up picking a book not in this pile. I am very much a mood-reader and could end up being in the mood for a book not pictured above.

I have to say that I'm impressed with my weekend reading. I think those few days of lacked reading due to getting married(!!!) really left me with a hunger to get some reading done after all was said and done. Overall I read a total of  1,022 pages which averaged me at about 146 pages a day. I had a goal of an average of 150 pages, so that's really close. Though I didn't read as much as I wanted, I would say this read-a-thon has been a success for me mostly because of those few great days of reading. How did you guys do?


Let me know if your participating in Bout of Books 10.0. I'd love to check out your TBR, etc.
