Bout of Books TBR and Goals!

Bout of Books

Because Harleen and I are desperate to finish our summer assignments for English class and we love to read, we are participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon. This is Harleen's first time participating!

Harman's TBR

I am practically the biggest procrastinator on the planet and with 8 books to read this summer, 1 paper to write, and a packet to fill out, the majority of my reads are assigned books for AP Literature. I've only read 1 book so far :/

The Remains of the Day    Othello    Autumn Falls (Autumn Falls, #1)    
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)    Oedipus Rex

1. Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro (Goodreads) -- Assigned
2. Othello by William Shakespeare (Goodreads) --Assigned
3. Autumn Falls by Bella Thorne (Goodreads)
4. Shadow and Bone by Leigha Bardugo (Goodreads) -- 1/2 Read
5. Oedipus Rex by Sophocles (Goodreads) -- Assigned, 1/2 Read

Harleen's TBR

Harleen is better about doing work a little at a time so she is not stressing out, therefore she gets to read a lot more books that she genuinely will enjoy. She was only assigned 6 books to read from AP Language and she has already finished 3 of them. Though, a couple of the books Harleen has chosen are books that she has started but not finished.

Spinning Starlight    Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)    Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue: The Untold History of English    Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)    The Dark Lord of Derkholm    Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

1. Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis (Goodreads
2. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (Goodreads)
3. Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue by John McWhorter (Goodreads) -- Assigned
4. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (Goodreads)
5. Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones (Goodreads) -- Book Club Read, 1/2 Read
6. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (Goodreads) -- Assigned, 1/2 Read

**Just know that these lists might change or be added onto but we will be having daily updates along with our other posts for the week!

Let us know what books you will be reading during the week!

  1. I'm so happy to see Diana Wynne Jones on your list! The Dark Lord of Derkholm was a great read! I hope you truly enjoy it!

    I wish WE'D been assigned such interesting literature books! I know assigned reading is a pain, but at least you've got some interesting ones there! Good luck!

    Both of you have fun this B.O.B and happy reading!
