3rd Annual ARC August: Week Four Update Post

The fourth week of August is done, which means there’s only a couple more days left of the 3rd Annual ARC August extravaganza hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. I DNF Mechanica last week–it wasn’t holding my interest with all the backstory. I am going to start reading Everything, Everything and Hunter this weekend after I finish Cinder. Obviously I’m not going to finish all my books for ARC August, but that’s okay.

3rd Annual ARC August: Week Three Update Post

The third week of August is done, which means there’s only approximately one week left for the 3rd Annual ARC August extravaganza hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. I’m currently reading Mechanica, but I’m not sure if I’ll finish it or not. It might be my second DNF book since I started blogging. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m definitely not going to finish all my books for ARC August, but that’s okay.

3rd Annual ARC August: Week Two Update Post

The second week of August is done, which means there’s only approximately two weeks left for the 3rd Annual ARC August extravaganza hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. I did not read anything this week because every free moment was focused on Pitch Wars. I’ll be submitting my entry by the end of today, so I’ll finally have some time to read again. Below is a repeat of where I’m at for my ARC August goal.

3rd Annual ARC August: Week One Update Post

So the first week of August is done, which means there’s only approximately three weeks left for the 3rd Annual ARC August extravaganza hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. My original goal was only 4 books, but I kept getting approved for more books each week, so I had to add more to my TBR pile for my ARC August goals post last week. I read two books already and DNF a third book. The reviews are all posted on my blog. So with that said, here are the books I’ve read and the books I still want to read.

You might have noticed I took two ARCs off that were on my sign up post. Their publication dates have passed, but I still really wanted to read them. Unfortunately I don’t think there’s going to be time. I just found out a little while ago about this contest on Twitter called Pitch Wars, and I decided to enter. There’s 100 mentors and you get to pick five from the group to send your query letter and the first chapter of your completed manuscript to. So I have a lot of work to do before the submittal date, including narrowing my list down to five mentors and writing a query letter. And I want to read Cinder for The Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read Along. This is definitely going to be a super busy month.

3rd Annual ARC August: Goals

So it’s finally the first day of August, which means it’s the kick off day for the 3rd Annual ARC August extravaganza hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. My original goal was only 4 books, but I recently got approved for more books this week. So now I must add more pretties to my list, because the reviews are due this month (or next month)! Ahhh! So much to do in August. With that said, here are the books I’m hoping to read this month.

Note: The below two eARCs were on my sign up post, but their publication dates have passed. I really want to read them, but only if I have time after all my other books.

Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz

Whew! I think that’s all of them, unless I get approved for more on Netgalley or Edelweiss. I already did not finish one book this morning that I didn’t show on this list. It’s going to be an eventful month with all my eARCs, plus reading Cinder for the first time for The Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read Along. I’m excited to see if I can kick some eARC butt though! I might do a weekly post with an update on how I’m doing, if I’m not too overwhelmed. It’ll help keep me accountable 🙂
