ARC August

ARC-August-ButtonIt’s August 1st which means…ARC August! What is it you ask? Well the wonderful Octavia over at Read. Sleep. Repeat. decided that the best way to make her way through the ARCs she has acquired. She is not only hosting but also having a giveaway for $20! I mean this could be the easiest $20 you get because all you have to do is read the books you already have. Don’t have a huge stack of ARCs waiting to be read? Then read that stack of books that has actually begun to collect dust. The whole point of this is to come together with other people who may or may not have an embarrassing number of books on their TBR. I know personally I suck at sticking to plans but I am really going to make an effort to try and get my stack of over due review books read (and reviewed) by the end of August. Plus, I am planning on having a grand time with other bloggers. Still hesitant? Check out Octavia’s post here and then check out the books I plan on conquering this month!

On average, I read 13 books a month. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I am hoping that this will be a month of MORE (I really do love more). I am only going to list 12 ARCs that I plan on reading this month because I am also working on my Classics Retold challenge that begins next month that I may be behind on as well.





So there you have it! Am I going to finish them all? Probably not but I do aim to at least get a few of those pesky ones that came out in the beginning of the year. I am also luckily going on a NO BUY this month because Comic-Con emptied my wallet and filled my book shelf. I put some on there that I am DYING to read and I put some other ones on there that I have been putting off for…a long time. I hope y’all join in on the fun because that stack of ARCs is not going anywhere soon!

    Awesome!! I just started reading False Sight so I can finish before it’s published. Fangirl and The Secret Ingredient are both great ones too! πŸ™‚
    Good luck!!!

      My aim is to finish False Sight before it’s published. Its not that I don’t want to read it I just want to read other books MORE (but then again the whole point of these is to read these pesky books BEFORE they are published :P)

      I finished FANGIRL yesterday and truly adored it! I cannot wait to get a finished copy and totally recommend picking up when you get a chance. You can still sign-up if you are interested. It is very low pressure so if you only read 1 ARC you are still winning!

    GOOD LUCK! So many books on there I can’t wait to read myself. I’m curious to see what you think of Asylum. It sounds good but I’m a little put off by the photo aspect of it.

      Did you read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children? That was my first YA book with pictures and I really enjoyed it. Every once in awhile I look for something a bit creepy and scary and hopefully I will be in that mood so I can pick this up before the end of the month.

    I’m not actually participating in ARC August, but I do have a list of ARCs I want to get through. I also need to read at least Jane Eyre for Classics Retold – it’s one of my goals, at least – and possibly one retelling as well. Good luck to you on your reading goals! Hopefully we’ll both have good reading months. πŸ™‚
