Link your list at Bout of Books and declare your crazy ambitious TBR list, like me!

This is what I HOPE to read (I can do it if I don’t stop to eat, or take care of my kids), in this order:


Bout of Books 11

81 – The geography of you and me
320 – The fire Wish
338 – Siege and Storm
191 – We were liars
375 – Days of blood and starlight
333 – Gates of Thread and Stone
404 – Throne of Glass
372 – Ready Player one
342 – Open Road Summer
315 – Steel lily
380 – No one else can have you
232 – Cryer’s Cross
324 – The thousand dollar tan line
221 – The Sky is every where
194 – Looking for Alaska

Those numbers are either pages left, or just how many pages in general.

It adds up to: 4422 Pages
I can read about a page a minute.
That’s 73.7 hours.
I have to read for about 10.5 hours a day… 😀

WISH ME LUCK! Since I’ll probably not accomplish this goal, especially if I try to comment on anyone else’s blogs! 😉


I’m going to bring out my inner Belle for the week and master walking while reading.

Why do I do this to myself? :-p

    Thanks for visiting my blog!! Love that you are aiming for a ton of books. I’ve only read RPO but it’s one of my favorite books ever!! If you love it, I have a bunch of virtual reality books I can suggest that are also enjoyable. Good luck to you, I look forward to keeping up with your progress!

    Woow, you are certainly ambitious. Super kudos if you manage to read it all! Only read Throne of Glass from your pile but I liked that one! Good luck, Amanda!

    Good Luck! It’s ambitious, but if you can pull out your inner Belle, I’m sure you can do it 🙂

    That is a very ambitious goal, but you have some great books there. I really love Siege and Storm; it’s a book you can easily read in one sitting, it’s that good. The same with Throne of glass, I don’t think you can put it down 😀 Days of blood and starlight is one of the books I also hope to finish this Bout of Books.

    Happy reading and good luck 😀

    I’m sure you can manage at least half of that 🙂 I’m looking forward to starting your book. See ya at the starting line!

    Had to laugh at the comment about not looking after your kids 😀 You have a great book list there! I recently read Ready Player One and it is now one of my all-time favourites!

    You’ve got lots of great books in there. I love Looking for Alaska and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Good luck on your goals ! This is my first time joining a read-a-thon and I’m very much excited !
