Bout of Books 9.0 TBR

Here are the books that I plan on reading on this readathon 🙂

First, I’d like to finish Persuasion, by Jane Austen. I am halfway through with it, and it’s very easy to read. I am quite enjoying it so far, so I think I will read it fast. I plan on staying up as soon as the readathon starts until I finish it.

After that, I will read Beloved, by Toni Morrison. I am not going to lie: I am dreading reading that book since I bought it, last year. But I have to read it for my university, so I’d better take advantage of the readathon and be done with it soon.

The last book I am planning on reading is The member of the wedding, by Carson McCullers. It’s another book for my university, but I have no problems with it (yet). It’s quite a short book, so I think it will be a fast thing.

If I finish all those books and still have some time (which would be quite surprising, but very welcome), I would start A clash of kings, by George R. R. Martin. It’s the second book in the Song of ice and fire series, which I am enjoying quite much so far. I have just started watching the first season of the TV show and I am really pumped to start it as soon as I finish the show, and I believe that I can give myself a break after all those university books 🙂

So, I will let you know how it all goes. For now, I will go to prepare everything I need, because, for me, the readathon starts in 30 minutes. Bye!

Reading push: bout of books 8.0 read-a-thon

So I decided to participate in the bout of books 8.0 read-a-thon, because I am taking way too much time to finish Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin.

Bout of books is a reading marathon in which the goal is simple: read more than you usually do. It was created by Amanda and Kelly from Bout of Books Blog.

I am studying at university and working at the same time, so I have very little time for reading. But this week I wanted to give myself a push to finish GoT already, and have decided I must finish it by Sunday.

I am currently on page 482, so I have 325 pages to go. It isn’t much, but most days it’s hard for me to read because I’m really tired. This is why I made myself undergo this challenge: it’s less than 70 pages a day, and I can totally do that. Let’s see how I do! I’ll keep you updated.

How about you? Are you participating? How many and which books have you decided to finish? Let me know!

Read you soon!

Bout of books 8.0 readathon wrapup

So I’ve been away for a while… Yeah. I’m sorry, but I’ve been reading a lot! (Also busy with work and university…)

I finished Game of thrones, by George R. R. Martin and gave it 4 stars (out of five). Then I started reading Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, and listening to the audiobook at the same time. This way I can learn the pronunciation of many words! 😀

I did enjoy participating in this readathon, but I couldn’t enjoy it very much since I had (and still have) a lot of work to do. So when my holidays come, around December 15th, I will participate in a readathon again 🙂

What are your thoughts? Did you like it? What do you think about readathons? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Read you soon!
