Bout of Books 9.0 Goals & Mad Libs

Bout of books 9.0 Goals & Mad Libs
Hi, in case you didn't already know, Bout of Books is a readathon, my sign-up post and all the info about it is right here. This post is a combo two-in-one for you. I'm going to include my goals, and the mad libs challenge for today. My goals for this readathon are to read four books. This is my first week back at school, and I have three very important tests to study for, so my goal would have been higher.

I know for sure I'm going to read Smoke by Ellen Hopkins, because her writing is frankly just wonderful, and it gives me a chance to do a series overview for a Spontaneous Saturday coming really soon. I also know I'm going to read Hollow Earth by John and Carole Barrowman, which is more Middle Grade, but my friend lent it to me and said it was really good, so I'm taking her word on it. The last book I'm certainly reading is Clan by Realm Lovejoy for the next Random Riday Review and as a review tour that might even have a GIVEAWAY attached to it. I don't know what the fourth book will be, because in the past two readathons I've participated in, I have completely changed courses, so I'm not even going to say anything. It will probably be a book I haven't read yet from my most recent Stacking the Shelves.

Onto to today's Mad libs Challenge
