Bout of Books Readathon!


Hey guys! I know things have been pretty quiet on my bog lately. I'm in graduate school and my workload has been CRAZY. Luckily, though, the semester just ended and I have six, count 'em SIX, weeks of freedom to rest and catch up on my TBR list. Soooo, what better way then participating in a read-a-thon? I'm very excited to be participating in Bout of Books 4.0, which runs from May 14th through May 20th. I have some awesome books in my TBR pile, and I'm ready to get started. I'll be updating on this post and through twitter (@stephlovescsd). Feel free to tweet and say hi! 

Goals:
Read 4 books or 1,200 pages

Possible Reading Material:
Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
Shine by Jeri Smith Ready
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
The Hero's Guide to Saving your Kingdom by Christopher Healy (on kindle)
maybe a book by Jennifer Echols? I've never read one of her's before

* If you have any other recommendations, please let me know!
