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. - From the Bout of Books team
To quote 70s era Aerosmith, "I'm back in the saddle again," and joining Bout of Books for cycle 17 (August 22-28, 2016). I felt I did really well in the cycle 16 (save for choosing a non-fiction book that slowed me down), and I hope to use BoB to help me push through to a strong finish with my other reading challenge, COYER-Summer Vacation edition.
1. His Jilted Bride (Banks Brothers Brides #3) by Rose Gordon
2. Much Ado About Dutton (More Courtesan Chronicles) by Claudia Dain
3. My Lady of Deception (Brethren of Lords #1) by Christi Caldwell
The above books are the last of the Regency box set.
4. Her Christmas Earl: A Regency Novella by Anna Campbell
I am planning this story to be read on August 25th in a nod to counting down to Christmas.
5. The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods #4) by Melissa de la Cruz
I just want to finish this book and then take a break from the series for a while.
