Let's Do This: ARC August

I'll be honest, I just recently heard of this but I've wanted, for a while now, to catch up/get ahead in my ARCs so that I don't have to do my frantic rush to get even a small number of them read on time. Therefore, I have decided to join in Read Sleep Repeat's ARC August event!

Don't know what ARC August is? You can check out their post here and join in on the fun! Basically, it's just all about reading those ARCs and takes place in August. =)

I'd like to read a minimum of 10 ARCs as that's about the average number of books I'm managing to read a month at the moment, plus I have a lot of editing planned for August so I don't want to try and overextend myself. Having said that, I did pick 12 to put on this list, these are one's I hope to read just in case I feel ambitious. =)

Joining in on ARC August? What's the ARC your most excited to get to? If you aren't joining in, what book are most excited to get to next month?

  1. Everytime I see What You Left Behind, I still get pretty miffed that I was denied. Not going to lie ;) I don't think we have ANY in common, which is weird! I am SUPER INSANELY EXCITED to read The Rest of Us Just Live Here, BUT since I got it at BEA I am not adding it to the ARC August, so that's sad. The Detour sounds kind of cool, but I wanted some reviews before I requested it, and then... I never saw any hhah. So you have to let me know! Same for Fans of the Impossible Life- I don't *think* I have that one, but I am going to be honest, I am not even 100% sure. That is BAD.

    Good luck! I am definitely joining in, and I am excited for ALL THE BOOKS :D

    1. Haha. I was actually denied it too but then got it through Nori's Sunday Street Team! Aw, we could have buddy read! I just thought Detour had a creepy cover so, you know, I'm in. =) That is bad, Shannon, how does that happen??? Though honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if I've forgotten one or two.

      Good luck to you too!

  5. The Rest of Us Just Live Here was really good! A lot weird, funny, had realistic characters, a great male POV. This was my first Patrick Ness story and it definitely won't be the last. I hope you like that one! And good luck with the challenge and the editing (especially the editing, I've heard it's horrible). :)

    1. Yay, now I'm super excited to read it! It will be my first Patrick Ness book too and I requested it simply because I hadn't read one of his yet. =)

      Thanks, Holly! And yes, editing is horrible but also almost awesome too? I have a complicated relationship with it as I assume all writers do.
