I stumbled across this challenge over at Books & Cleverness, and I immediately knew it was a perfect fit for me this summer! ARC August is hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat. and this is its third year. The goal is to tackle some of the ARCs on your TBR in a fun and low-key challenge environment. Since I acquired quite a few ARCs at ALA, I have plenty to get to in 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 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.
Perhaps a tad bit ambitious, but I’d love to get to 5 ARCs in the month of August, all of which have either August or September release dates.
These are the ARCs I will be choosing from to read:
Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly (Aug.)
Never Said by Carol Lynch Williams (Aug.)
Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales (Sept.)
Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between by Jennifer E. Smith (Sept.)
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy (Sept.)
Firewalker by Josephine Angelini (Sept.)
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (Sept.)
I Crawl Through It by A.S. King (Sept.)
Violent Ends by Shaun Hutchinson (Sept.)
Hunter by Mercedes Lackey (Sept.)
