ARC August - BOOM! Let's Do This

Paper Bindings - ARCAugust

I saw this thing called ARC August and had to join in.

ARC August is hosted over at Read.Sleep.Repeat and it's all about tackling that ARC pile.

I am doing okay on my own, but this seemed liked it would be a fun way to motivated me to get into gear.


The rules are very simple....

* 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.

My Goal:

In a perfect world: 30 (That is all the older ARCs I've recently received plus all the books that come out through the end of September.)
Ideally, okay, more realistically: 18 (All newish older arcs, and new ones taking me through August publishing dates.)
I'll settle for: 8 (That's 2 a week.)

What about you guys? Are you joining the challenge next month?


  1. This is such a cool idea! It would be great to finally put a dent in my TBR ARC pile, though 2 books per week for me would be more realistic since I'm a pretty slow reader.

    1. I am such a mood reader. So even if I read 1000 books a read, I'd probably still only read 2 ARCs. lol. I hope you join in!

      Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Sounds like a great way to kick our butts in the reading department! Sadly, this is too daunting for me! I already have trouble reading fast and so this pressure wouldn't bode well with me! Best of luck ;)

    PS - thanks for stopping by my review of Playing To Win by Jaci Burton, I replied with a recommeneded book for you if you're still interested in a contemporary romance read! Happy reading!

    1. The pressure might get to me, especially with my work situation taking up valuable free time. But I'm still going to try. If I fail, at least no lives were on the line.

      Thank you for stopping by.

  3. I definitely want to sign up for this too! I could use a month to catch up on ARCs. Good luck!
