3rd Annual ARC August! I'm In...Are You?

I first heard of ARC August while reading Alicia's (A Kernel of Nonsense) post about her participation in the challenge. The further I read about the 3rd Annual ARC August that is hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat. the more I wanted to take part in it.
I started out the summer with this (what I thought at the time) strong plan to catch up on all my review books that I couldn't get to due to school work and work. It is now July (as of writing this post) and I have gone only backwards by adding more review books. Each time I receive a book to review I am honored, because it's like the author is entrusting me with their child. I feel like I am letting down the author when I take longer than expected to review their book. So, I am going to take advantage of this challenge, and try to get through as many ARCs as possible during the month of August!


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 (starting August 8th) 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.
Goals for ARC August...

I was debating to share with you the books that I will definitely be getting to this month, but then I made myself realize that whenever I set books to read in stone I never stick with the ones I choose. Instead, I will be listing about 22 (there's no way I'll get to all of them this month!) books that I will be choosing from as I make my way through August and my review pile. I will link them to Goodreads, so if the cover and title sounds/looks interesting you can skedaddle on over to Goodreads to learn more about them! Let me know if you are or thinking about participating in ARC August!


  1. WOW. You have a lot of interesting books that you want to review for August. I hope you get to read most of these. I hope you love all of them. New follower via bloglovin. I'm thinking I should do this one as well.
