Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Update 4 and a Mini Challenge

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Yesterday was a good day for me. I read about 260 pages of City of Flowers and made a decent way in Chastity. I'm hoping to have them both finished by tomorrow. On to a challenge:

Most Looking Forward To Challenge is hosted by Pages of Forbidden Love, who gives us two questions to answer.

1) What book are you most looking forward to based on summary alone?

The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Summary:  Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to an allying pirate clan: she wants to captain her own boat, not serve as second-in-command to her handsome yet clueless fiance. But her escape has dire consequences when she learns the scorned clan has sent an assassin after her.

And when the assassin, Naji, finally catches up with her, things get even worse. Ananna inadvertently triggers a nasty curse — with a life-altering result. Now Ananna and Naji are forced to become uneasy allies as they work together to break the curse and return their lives back to normal. Or at least as normal as the lives of a pirate and an assassin can be.

2) What book are you most looking forward to based on cover art alone?

I can't say that there's any book I'm looking forward to based on cover art alone. I don't usually find out about new books until after they're published (or they're sequels to books I've read and that's why I want to read them). I did come across The Assassin's Curse completely by chance.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 13th and runs through Sunday, August 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 5.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
