Bout of Books 14: Goals & Progress

Yay! With Bout of Books 14 kicking off tomorrow, it’s time to talk about my goals and the books I plan to hope to read over the next few days. Y’all know me. I’m a moody reader, so I might not stick to this list 100%. 😉

I kept my goals a little on the low side, so hopefully I will blow them away. 🙂 Instead of doing a new post each day with my progress, which just takes away from reading time, I’ll be posting my updates here. Feel free to stop back any time to see how I’m doing!

GOALS

  • Read at least an hour and a half each day.
  • Finish 5 books.
  • Review 4 of those books.
  • Try to participate in at least one of the daily challenges.
    Psst. I’m hosting a challenge later this week. Make sure you check it out!

THE BOOKS

 Love So Tempting bwws In the Dark TheDarkestFlame_HighRes-DIGITAL Bounce_Cover

I really want to finish each of these (unless something shiny distracts me). If I hit my goal of 5 books, I can choose whatever I want for the rest of the week. 🙂

DAILY UPDATES

I’ll update this each morning with my stats from the previous day. 🙂
