#ARCAugust is hosted by the amazing Octavia & Shelly @ Read. Sleep. Repeat and if you aren’t participating — you should be. Let me talk to you guys about epic fail — the reason there was no week three update was because I had only read one book off my list. It was an amazing book, but one book wasn’t worth making an update post over. However, I have managed to knock more off my list coming into the final week. Let’s see what I have completed, shall we?
The Dog Who Dared to Dream by Hwang Sun-mi (September 6)
- This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills (October 4)
The Infinity Year of Avalon James by Dana Middleton (October 11) Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure by Ann M. Martin (September 6)
- Girls Like Me by Lola St.Vil (October 4)
When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore (October 4)
- Speed of Life by J.M Kelly (October 11)
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova (September 6) Every Hidden Thing by Kenneth Oppel (September 20) The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog
by Adam Gidwitz (September 27)
- Blood For Blood by Ryan Graudin (November 1)
Afterward by Jennifer Mathiu (September 20) Write This Down by Claudia Mills (September 27, ebook) The Swan Riders by Erin Bow (September 20) Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands (September 6)
I am SO CLOSE to finishing my list if you can believe it. I am currently in the middle of Girls Like Me (well, ten pages in), so I think I can manage getting these last four titles done. Who wants to take bets that I can do it?
My favourite of the two weeks? When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore. I have written a review for it, but to be honest I don’t think my review can even do the book justice in terms of what it entails as a novel. It’s beautiful, smart, sensitive, and I just hope everyone reads it.
With one week left to go, here’s hoping I can knock out these last four. Stay tuned to the blog over the next few months as all these books will have reviews on the blog. How is your #ARCAugust going? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments.
