ARC August: I signed up!

arc august

I saw this over on Michelle's blog at Michelle's Minions and thought it looked like a great idea!

Octavia and Shelly at Read. Sleep. Repeat. are hosting the third annual ARC August event.  And well, my ARCs and review copies are piling up this month.  So I love this idea!  Here are the rules.

  • 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.
I will likely be posting reviews on Saturdays (or Mondays per my usual posting schedule) and saying they were also for ARC August.  Here are some of the unread ARCs that I currently have and might be doing:

I may have some others at the time, who knows?  And since I accept a lot of indy books, I may have some indy ARCs to read!  Who knows!  All I know is, I want to get as much done as possible and increase my NetGalley rating!


  1. This is probably something I should do since my ARCs are piling up as well... but I'm not really good at sticking to things like this. Best of luck with reading!

    1. Thanks! I've been in kind of a slump lately so I'm hoping this will get me back on track.

  2. Good luck! I'll be reading Inherit the Stars too. It sounds pretty incredible.

    1. Awesome! I've had it sitting around for sooo long I need to finally read it!
