Bout of Books #25 Sign-Up and Reading Plans

I’m hoping I can read up a storm this week during Bout of Books #25.

What is Bout of Books?

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, Twitter chats, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 25 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Classics Club Spin #20

Cheers to Classics Club Spin #20!

On Monday, April 22nd, a number from 1-20 will be chosen and I will then have until May 31st to read the book from my list that corresponds with that number.

Even though I never so much as opened my pick for the CC Spin #19 (a re-read of Evelina by Frances Burney), I’m excited to jump back in for this round. I’ve been craving a great classic lately, so I can’t wait to see which one the spin gods have in store for me.

Here’s my list:

These ten books are not necessarily the ten most recent additions to my TBR, but rather a diverse sampling of some of the many books I’ve added to my Goodreads TBR this month. I’ve included upcoming releases as well as backlist; nonfiction and fiction.

My 2019 TBR Pile Challenge List

The 2019 TBR Pile Challenge is hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader, with the goal of reading the books that have been languishing on our shelves. The challenge is to read and review 12 unread books that have been on your shelf for more than a year, during the 12 months of 2019.

My 2018 challenge was a huge failure, but it’s a new year full of new possibilities.

Here’s my list of 12 Books and two alternates:

11 Books in Honor of the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day

One hundred years ago today, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the First World War officially came to an end.

It’s an incredibly sobering and momentous anniversary.

While I plan to spend some time diving back into Testament of Youth this afternoon, there are many books about WWI still on my TBR list. I thought I’d share 11 of these titles  to commemorate 100 years since the end of the Great War.

This week’s topic is: Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

Most of these have been on my TBR list for a while now, but sometimes it’s nice to leave a few books by your favorites to look forward to in the future.
