Readathon: Bout of Books 6.0

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Hello all!
It's time again for Bout of Books!!
Here are some details from the BoB 6.0 Team:

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, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th 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 6.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.  -From the Bout of Books 6.0 team

I am not sure which books I am going to read yet, 
but would like to complete at least two!
I know that doesn't sound like much,
but well, it is to me. LoL
Here are some books I desperately need to finish.
