#ARCApril!

I’m so excited to start ARC April! My internet’s been crap, so it’s been frustrating trying to upload this post on time, but I’m glad to finally get some reviews and blogging done 🙂 I have a lot of e-arcs, so that will be the majority of my pile. The books I’m hoping to get through this month include, but are not limited to:

ARC August: Week 3

ARC AUGUST: Week 3

Books Read: 

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie and Alyssa B. Sheinmel

(a couple of other non-arc books, sorry ya’ll I tried.)

Total Books & Reviews:

A Whole New World by Liz Braswell | Review

A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston | Review

Sweet Madness by Trisha Leaver & Lindsay Currie | Review

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie and Alyssa B. Sheinmel | Review to be typed as soon as I’m finished w/ this post.

——-

I’ve started on Maragaret Atwood’s newest book, The Heart Goes Last and it’s…. um… interesting? I’m (hopefully) past all the sexual thoughts, fantasies and “torture,” parts, so I’m hoping more of it will make sense, instead of making me want to skip pages.  It’s quite longer than I initally thought. I’m 45% through, and according to my kindle I have 3 hrs. 51 min. left.

After I finish The Heart Goes Last I’m going to start on The Bargaining by Carly Anne West, another EW title that I need to get through 🙂

On the upside, my Netgalley percentage has gone up a couple of points, now at 77% 🙂 I haven’t gotten to any of my non-netgalley arcs yet, but after I finish The Haunting of Sunshine Girl, I’m going to start on The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood, which was provided via EW.

On the downside, I was denied the job that I’ve spent two weeks of painful anxiety and interviews on, and I’m completely lost in my life.

ARC August 2015

It’s that time again! Time to start planning my SHRA (should have read already) list for Read.Sleep.Repeat’s ARC August!

dance

To keep it short and simple, I’m going to choose 7 of my ARC’s to read (all e-arcs, because I get through them slower than physical books, for some reason, and therefore have more.)


I’m not choosing 7 because it’s a lucky number, although I guess I’d need a little luck for this challenge, but because I want to keep it within reason and… the 7th of August is my birthday!! (ahem… HERE’s my birthday wishlist… I mean… what?)

The List

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige Mckenzie

A Whole New World: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell

The Bargaining by Carly Anne West

The Accidental Alchemist by Gigi Pandian

The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

Shadow of Doubt by Nancy Cole Silverman

Undertow by Michael Buckley

I’ll add on to the list if by some miraculous binge-reading surge, I finish all of these, because I really do have so many more ARCs to get through. I swear getting ARCs is like amazon one-clicking, or eating skittles… you can’t just have one, and it’s out of control, but you loooooove it! 😀

ARC August Updates

So far, ARC August has been going pretty well! It would be going even better had I stuck to my schedule of reading and reviewing one book every three days, and had I stopped requesting books from NG & EW, but you take what you can get, right?

I’m currently reading The Bargain by Stephanie Reed and I’m still getting through The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Anderson.

Here’s my list again! The ones enclosed in asterisks (*) are ARC’s that mysteriously disappeared from netgalley, which means I cannot submit feedback, which therefore makes reading them pointless right now. The ones crossed out are the one’s I’ve finished, and you can click on them for the review:

Here’s a list of all of my unread ARC’s and I shall read them in the order listed:
 
The Bargain
Summerhouse with a Swimming Pool
The Forsaken
The Boleyn Deceit
Evil Librarian
Inland
The Outcasts
Innocence
This is Sarah
I am the Mission
The Quick
The Moses Virus
The Bookstore
***Hild***
Delia’s Shadow
Confessions of Marie Antoinette
The Signature of All Things
