Readathons & Challenges TBRs

#ARCAugust TBR

August 1, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was perusing Netgalley and lamenting my feedback percentage (I’ve only reviewed 64% of the titles I’ve been approved for, if you’re wondering), when something grand occurred to me: I should focus the entire month of August on ARCs!

Then, an even better thought hit me… ARCgust! Get it? August, ARCgust… I’ll see myself out.

After pumping myself up for this idea and thinking about how excited I was to announce it to you lovely folks, I stumbled upon the blog post for the 5th Annual #ARCAugust challenge, and my excitement deflated pretty quickly. Evidently, I was not the first person to think of devoting August to ARCs.

So, with a few exceptions for group reads, my entire TBR for August is going to be composed of ARCs – mostly backlisted. I’ll add their GR links (and release dates for the unreleased ones), just in case any of you are interested in adding on to your TBR!


Group Reads for Life & Lit:

Illuminae (reread)
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
My Lady Jane

ARCs (sorted by highest priority to lowest):

All the Crooked Saints (10.10)
Girls Made of Snow and Glass (9.5)
Spellbook of the Lost and Found (8.15)
Flame in the Mist
Hunting Prince Dracula (9.19)
Nyxia (9.12)
Moxie (9.19)
Future Leaders of Nowhere
Things I Should Have Known
The Disappearances
The Roanoke Girls
Feel Me Fall

I’m primarily going to be tracking my #ARCAugust progress over on my Twitter, if anyone is interested in following me there!

What does your August TBR looking like? Are you participating in #ARCAugust?

    I don’t have any ARCs, so I won’t be participating. HOWEVER, I am very interested in reading The Roanoke Girls.

      Thank you! I’m so excited for both of them! Ahhh that’s right!! I remember you talking about that! I have the eARC – do you know if it has your blurb, too? That’s so exciting!
