Well it’s that time again. It’s time to get serious, buckle down, and clean up some TBR stacks!!! Want to join in? Go visit the Bout of Books blog and sign up!!
Let’s see what the plan is this go round. . .
Ok if the last two bouts taught me anything its that I start strong and then basically don’t finish anything. I’m trying to be better with reading and catching up (resolutions people!) and I’m starting to see a light at the end of the egally tunnel though it is still a bit farther away than I would like it to be. Following Daphne’s past approach I will be making a list of books to pick from since I don’t know what my reading mood will be when the bout starts. My goal right now would be to read 6 books, 2 from each grouping below but we all know I’m a horrible planner so I’d be happy with 6 total regardless. 😛
End of Series Options – I tend to read all of the books in a series and then stop when there is one left. I just don’t want to give up the world and I’m terrified they won’t end the way I want them too. . .
Requiem by Lauren Oliver
The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
Gates of Paradise by Melissa de la Cruz
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
Just One Year by Gayle Forman
Sever by Lauren Destefano
New to me – I need to start branching out as well. Here are a few that have been climbing my TBR list but I haven’t quite gotten to yet.
Scarlet by AC Gaughen
Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Unbreak My Heart by Melissa C. Walker
Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny Trout
The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni
Edelweiss – I’ve cleaned up my netgalley for the most part (I still have a ways to go, I’m right at that 80% so I mark that as a win) but I’ve totally slacked on the Edelweiss side. Here’s a perfect chance to jump start that train.

The Buring Sky by Sherry Thomas
Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis
