ARC August: Sign Up

Hey Bibliophiles!

Today I decided to join the ARC August challenge! This will be my first time taking part of this challenge, here’s to hoping I have some success!

The rules are very simple

  • It may be a physical ARC or eARC but it MUST be an ARC
  • Yes it can be an ARC that has already released; as long as it’s an ARC I’m not going to nit pick really
  • 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/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.


  • Finish all 4 physical books
  • Finish 4/8 ebooks (At least!)
  • Post updates every Saturday
  • Post a wrap-up!

      I will!! I had a couple of people tell me how they loved it and 1 person said they hoped it would get the recognition it deserves so I now have high expectations lol. I also have The Scorpion Rules and The Dead House! Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to get to them this month. Thanks for stopping by <3!!

    You have very different books than I do. Yet they look interesting. Curious to hear what you think of Madly.

    I’m aiming for 7 books, plus or minus 4, haha. It can feel a little daunting. That’s the point of a challenge, isn’t it?

    Let us know when you think of Blackthorn! Haven’t seen Madly, though — that looks good.

      Right? What’s life without a daunting TBR pile?! I also have my August TBR of 7 books that doesn’t include ARCs, so I’m hoping I can find a happy medium between the two piles :).

      I’m excited for Blackthorn, I’ve heard good things about it.

      Thanks for stopping by!

        Sounds like my summer. I was so overwhelmed with books (ARCs, TBR) that I cut ARCs out and just read from my massive TBR bookcase. Now it’s back to the grind 😉
