Goals and TBR List | Bout of Books 11

I'm incredibly excited for Bout of Books 11! I had a lot of fun the last time I did this read-a-thon, and ultimately, it was pretty rewarding because I got a lot of reading done.

Bout of Books

The challenges sound so cool for Bout of Books 11 so I'm going to try and do several. This time around, I'd like to do things a little differently in terms of what I'm delving into. I rarely read small novels, so for Bout of Books 11 I'll be reading short novels and anthologies, as well as graphic novels and comics!


  • Read at least two short novels, one novella, one collection of short stories, two graphic novels, and 10 comics issues
  • Participate in at least one Twitter chat
  • Participate in at least three challenges
  • Make daily progress posts
  • Read at least one hour per day


1. Drive by James Sallis

 2. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

3. Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

 4. The Virgin Coop: A Broken Trilogy by Matt Scallon 

 5. Serenity: Better Days and Other Stories by Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews and Will Conrad 

6. Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale by Joss Whedon, Zack Whedon and Chris Samnee

7. At least 10 comics from this pile

I can barely wait for next week. What will you be reading?


  1. Looks like you have lots of great reading ahead of you! I am planning on grabbing volume 3 of The Walking Dead comic from the library on Monday...that will definitely be one of the books I read for this read-a-thon. Good luck and have lots of fun!!!

    1. Cool! I LOVE the Walking Dead series, it's so good. Certainly a page-turner! Thank you and I hope you have fun too!!

  2. Oh wow that looks like a lot of reading! All the best with it. I also hope to participate in some challenges, they look really fun :)

    1. Thank you! I'm so excited for the challenges :D I hope you have fun!

  3. Good luck with your reading goals!! I'm also participating in Bout of Books this week too and am planning to listen to two unabridged audiobooks.

    I read The Reader a few years ago and its a fast read. I'm curious to see what you think of it when you've finished reading it.

    1. Thanks! Last Bout of Books, I listened to the audiobook of Mindy Kaling's first book, which was quite fun :)

      That's good to hear, since I do like quick reads. I'll definitely be posting a review once I'm done, so feel free to visit again soon :D

  4. These are good goals! Especially reading one hour per day. And some good books. Good luck, and have fun!

    1. Thanks, I hope you have fun too! :)
