Bout of Books is on its’ 19th run, and it just keeps getting better and better. This is a fun, no pressure readathon that brings together lots of bookish people around the world. There are no set rules – you can read whatever you want and however much you want, though there is a different mini challenge each day and a couple of Twitter chats which are always fun to participate in.
This time, I will be participating in both readathons concurrently – whatever I read for the bookbuddyathon will also count for Bout of Books, so my TBR remains much the same for both. The plan is that I will participate in ALL of the mini challenges alongside my reading, so I’m hoping to have a lot of fun.
I think I’m most looking forward to reading Human Acts by Han Kang. I’ve heard so much about this book and am curious. I have read The Vegetarian by the same author, which I found quite weird and a little underwhelming, but I enjoyed it enough to want to read Human Acts. I’ve also just finished reading Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, a non-fiction insight into life in North Korea, which was frankly terrifying, so it will be interesting to compare with Human Acts, which tells the story of a student uprising in South Korea.
Once again, I’ll be tweeting and instagramming regular updates throughout the week, so be sure to follow me!
