7/11

Progress Report: I did pretty poor on this ARC August Challenge. Admittedly life was crazy busy, I got married, had visitors for over a week, and just getting myself ready to start library classes again, doesn’t make up for my attempt at this. I could have done better! If it’s any consolation, I am reading an ARC right now, which is Sparkers, and what ARCs I didn’t finish this month I will for sure be carrying into September.

Truthfully, I read graphic novels more than anything else. They are quick, take less time, and it was ultimately what I was craving in the end. I decided since I’m doing another book ban challenge, I’m reading whatever I want in those two months since I’m going to be swamped with school work. You’ll likely see reviews from me, but as to how many? Only time will tell.

How did you do on the ARC August Challenge? Let me know in the comments.

ARC August Update #2

 

ARC-August-2015ARC August Challenge!

 

 This Challenge is Hosted by Octavia over at Read. Sleep. Repeat (Sign Up Post Linked!)

 

Here are the ten ARCs I am going to attempt to complete this month.

 

  • The Rise of Aurora West by Paul Pope (Release Date: September 30th)
  • I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson (Release Date: September 16th)
  • Sparkers by Eleanor Glewwe (Release Date: September 30th)
  • Spirit’s Key by Edith Cohn (Release Date: September 9th)
  • The Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane (Release Date: September 16th)
  • Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang (Release Date: September 9th)
  • The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry (Release Date: September 23rd)
  • Firebug by Lish McBride (Release Date: September 23rd)
  • 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith (Release Date: September 2nd)
  • Feral by Holly Schindler (Release Date: August 26th)

Progress Report: I finished two more ARCs this week, Spirit’s Key and The Evidence of Things Not Seen. The first book I absolutely adored, the second book… well you can wait for my review to see how I felt about it. Let’s just say the feelings weren’t positive. I’m about 21% through Holly Schindler’s Feral, which has been a mixed bag of a read for me simply because the tension level is very all over the place. I still think I liked her middle grade book I read a lot more than this one. I’m also reading The 100 because Netgalley offered me it and the upcoming sequel as galleys, so I’m going to make some time for those. Should be tricky though considering… I’m getting MARRIED on Sunday!

Yep! Married! And then I’ve got out of town guests staying after the wedding for a whole week afterwards so I think all my reading is going to take a nose dive for a bit. Still I’m going to try my best, but I make NO promises! Anywho, how is your ARC August going? What have you been reading? Let me know in the comments!

 

ARC August Challenge – ACCEPTED.

ARC-August-2015

This Challenge is Hosted by Octavia over at Read. Sleep. Repeat (Sign Up Post Linked!)

So I probably shouldn’t be attempting this challenge, buuuuut… I can’t say no to challenges for some reason. This is probably the worst month for me to be attempting this challenge since I’m getting married in August, I have guests staying with me after the wedding,  review content for RPGamer, and I’m likely working Fan Expo on top of all of it. I don’t think I’ll be able to power through all my ARCs (because that is impossible!), so I am making a goal to complete ten ARCs for the month.

Here are the ten ARCs I am going to attempt to complete this month.

  • The Rise of Aurora West by Paul Pope (Release Date: September 30th)
  • I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson (Release Date: September 16th)
  • Sparkers by Eleanor Glewwe (Release Date: September 30th)
  • Spirit’s Key by Edith Cohn (Release Date: September 9th)
  • The Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane (Release Date: September 16th)
  • Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang (Release Date: September 9th)
  • The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry (Release Date: September 23rd)
  • Firebug by Lish McBride (Release Date: September 23rd)
  • 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith (Release Date: September 2nd)
  • Feral by Holly Schindler (Release Date: August 26th)

These are the bunch I am going to TRY and read in August, as well as review. I’m just so swamped in ARCs that I need to really just make the time and jump into them head first without fear, I’ll be a lot happier if I can get my pile down a bit more, especially since I put myself back on a library and book buying ban because of the giant pile of shiny ARCs.

If you’ve read any of these let me know in the comments. I hope I can get through a lot of these, but I don’t know if I can. I’mma gonna try, though! Also if you’re doing the event, let me know so I can cheer you on!
