ARC August Recap

August, and the summer, flew by faster than I could have dreamed. Octavia (Read, Sleep, Repeat) helped me so much with her ARC August event. I had so many books (and still do) that I needed to read and this was just the motivation I needed. I did really well the first three weeks but fell short this last week. Overall, I read more books than I had set as my goal!

My ARC August Goals–I set a goal of 10 books to read and read 14. Below are the books I read and the reviews I’ve posted for them so far.

ARC August Week 3

The third week of August has just passed and we are getting close to the end of Octavia’s (Read, Sleep, Repeat) brain child ARC August. I feel that I’ve done well and I feel less stressed about my TBR pile. Here’s what I did this past week:

ARC’s Read:
Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano, Horde by Anne Aguire, Thin Space by Jody Casella and More Than This by Patrick Ness

 Perfect Ruin (Internment Chronicles, #1)Horde (Razorland, #3)

  Thin SpaceMore Than This

I posted reviews for Delia’s Shadow, Thin Space and Overpowered

ARC’s to Read:
Shadows by Paula Weston, What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang and attempt Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart (which I had given up on after not liking the writing style) again.

 Shadows (The Rephaim, #1)What's Left of Me (The Hybrid Chronicles, #1)Eat, Brains, Love

ARC August Week 2

How’d I do the second week of Octavia’s (Read, Sleep, Repeat) ARC August? Not as well as last week but I did meet my goal, though I veered off my list of what I should read. I had wanted to finish Horde by Ann Aguirre but I ended up not even touching it all week. I also realized mid-week that I forgot a book from the first week–Marissa Meyer’s Cress. How in the world did I forget to add it last week? I’ll never know–but I’m adding it to this week’s update.

ARCs Read:
Cress by Marissa Meyer, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke , Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer and Overpowered by Mark H. Kruger

   Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)Overpowered
Read my review of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

ARC’s for Next Week:

ARC August

ARC August is a event hosted by Octavia at Read, Sleep, Repeat to help us bloggers with an ARC addiction get a handle on that menacing pile of books.

My goal for this event will be to read 10 of my ARCs. I’ve been pretty good at keeping up…but just barely. Hopefully this will help me get ahead or at least a bit more on track.

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis, The Deepest Night by Shana Abe, Overpowered by Mark H. Kruger, Thin Space by Jody Casella, More Than This by Patrick Ness, Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer, Horde by Ann Aguirre, Sylo by DJ MacHale, Untraceable by S.R. Johannes I will attempt to finish The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White
