#ARCApocalypse Update: June 2020

June 1, 2020

✨ June #ARCApocalypse Update ✨

Time for another ARC update! For my 2020 #ARCApocalypse info and TBR, check here!

I know, in February I said I was done with ARC updates, buuuuut I decided recently to start working on my ARCs again and to implement a new ARC ban, so… here we are!

I thought about resuming State of the ARC, but decided that the updates I want to do will actually go in a bit of a different direction — so here’s something new! If you’re participating in ARC Apocalypse, feel free to copy this post format if you like it! ?

✨ ARC ban rules ✨

1. I must read AT LEAST 1 more title than I haul every month
2. if a book wasn’t already an anticipated release, it goes on a “wishlist” for 7+ days first
3. I have to check kindle unlimited before hauling indie titles

✨ last month’s ARC hauls ✨

  1. Two Rogues Make a Right
  2. Burning Roses
  3. Ring Shout
  4. The Unready Queen
  5. I Hope You’re Listening
  6. Watch Over Me
  7. Legendborn
  8. Court of Lions
  9. How Do We Relationship?, Vol. 1
  10. Basketful of Heads

More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. So many gorgeous covers! I immediately wanted to read Odessa, The Guest List, and Just Like That based on the cover alone. Enjoy!

    1. I’m jealous of your ARC copies of Mexican Gothic and Home before dark!
