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, May 12th and runs through Sunday, May 18th 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 10.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

How did he win?
Prince Joffrey was the first one out, he was easily killed as he arrogantly thought he could beat the other two. He was beaten by a girl in his own book. Now, the battle between Prince Maxon and Hans drawled out. For a long time Hans was going on about how he was going to let Prince Maxon beat him, but whenever Maxon went for the blow, Hans laughed and said he tricked him and would try to unhand Maxon; except Maxon was not born yesterday. It all ended when Hans noticed his reflection in Prince Maxon’s sword and thought to himself ‘do I really look like that’. Maxon took his chance and back handed Maxon to the ground with the hilt of his sword. No one was surprised to see Prince Maxon had won, because we all know he is America’s sweetheart.
