I love #ARCAugust. #ARCAugust is hosted by the amazing Octavia & Shelly @ Read. Sleep. Repeat and I swear they don’t know how much I love this little event that they run. I mentioned in a previous post that my TBR pile for this event was a tad over-ambitious, but honestly, after this first week I have made some awesome progress.

Favourite Read This Week: Afterward by Jennifer Mathieu. This book, just, ugh, feelings.
You’ll notice two more items were added to this list. That is because @SimonTeenCA sent me a few September ARCs, and now I definitely need to make sure they get reviewed. Here’s a pick fo what they sent me!
I am hoping to have as productive #ARCAugust, and we’ll see how I roll next week. Right now I am in the middle of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, which I am enjoying very much. It’s definitely got a very different paranormal vibe to it which is keeping me hooked. As for the books I’ve recently finished, expect to see reviews of them on the blog very soon!
If you are particpating in #ARCAugust, how did your first week go? I’d love to know in the comments!
