So while reading through some of the blogs I follow, I came upon ARC August! I first noticed it over at Girl in the Pages, and it is hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat. Since I’ve only started blogging about two months ago, I never had the chance to participate before, and I though it would be really fun to do so this year, since I have a big list of ARCs that I haven’t read yet, or ones that I have gotten recently and plan on reading.
The rules are very simple
- It may be a physical ARC or and eARC but it MUST be an ARC
- Yes it can be an ARC that has released as long as it’s an ARC I’m not going to nit pick much
- HAVE FUN WITH THIS! Feeling like you are being “forced” to read is the best way turn a fun event into a yucky obligation.
- Update post! I personally will do a post for each Saturday in August but that’s just me. You can update once a week, every other week or once for the whole darn event. This update can be in the form of a blog or tumblr post, vlog, link to your “ARC August 2015″ shelf or even an instagram pic! I want to make this as easy and low pressure as possible for you.
I’m going to go for the goal of reading six eARCs for the month of August! I think that’s pretty good for my first one!
I’m going through some of the ARCs I’ve been meaning to read, so I’m going to choose six out of this list:
- The Porcupine of Truth, by Bill Konigsberg (Late)
- Tiny Pretty Things, by Sona Charaipotra (Late)
- Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls, by Lynn Weingarten (Late)
- More Happy Than Not, by Adam Silvera (Late)
All We Have is Now, by Lisa Schroeder (July) Playing the Player, by Lisa Brown Roberts (August)
- The Creeping, by Alexandra Sirowy (August)
- The Uninvited, by Cat Winters (August)
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between, by Jennifer E. Smith (September)
- The Heart Goes Last, by Margaret Atwood (September)
- Dumplin’, by Julie Murphy (September)
- One, by Sarah Crossan (September)
- What We Saw, by Aaron Hartzler (September)
- Fans of the Impossible Life, by Kate Scelsa (September)
- Walk on Earth a Stranger, by Rae Carson (September)
I’m really excited about doing this! If you have some ARCs or eARCs to read, you should sign up too!
