#ARCAugust 2017: TBR + Sign-Up Post

Posted July 29, 2017 by Madalyn || 6 Comments

I am excited to participate in the fifth annual #ARCAugust, hosted by the lovely people over at Read.Sleep.Repeat. I was originally planning not to participate, because I’ve been pretty on top of my review copy game lately, but then I went on a requesting spree on Netgalley because I clearly enjoy making life hard for myself.¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway, today, I’ll be sharing my TBR and goals with you all!

the rules

The rules for #ARCAugust are fairly straightforward:

  • Any Advanced Reading Copy counts as part of this reading challenge (including backlist titles!).
  • No blog necessary to participate, but you’ll need to include some form of social media as part of your sign up.
  • Use the #ARCAugust on social media to check in throughout the month.

madalyn’s goals

  • Ideally, I’d like to write reviews for 5 out of the 6 books on my TBR.
  • I don’t plan on reading solely ARCs during August, because I have some other readathons and buddy reads I’m participating in, as well. However, if I receive any more ARCs in the mail/get approved for any more ARCs on Netgalley before the end of the month, I’d like to go ahead and knock them out during #ARCAugust, just to have them done before I start school again and life gets crazy.
  • Participate in at least one of the #ARCAugust Twitter chats.

Are you participating in #ARCAugust? If so, what books do you plan to read? Which of the books on my TBR would y’all be most interested in seeing me review?

  • This is always a fun one to join. Good luck with your ARCs!!

    • It’s my first time participating, so I’m super excited! Thanks so much, Grace!

    I have an eARC of Moxie that I’m also hoping to read for #ARCAugust! It’s my first time participating and I’m really excited! ❤️

    • Yaaaay! It’s my first time participating, too. I think Moxie is the book I’m most looking forward to reading for this challenge!

  • I also decided to join this last minute. I wasn’t planning on it because I have a lot of library books out right now and didn’t want to end up neglecting them and having to return them without reading them first, but then I realized I have a LOT of ARCs that I still haven’t read so… here I am, haha. It looks like you’ve got some great ARCs to get through. I can’t wait to see what you think of Moxie. I want to read that book so badly!

    • Same! I was just staring at my Goodreads shelves one day recently and realized I had a lot more unread ARCs than I thought I did, haha. I am so excited to read Moxie; I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about it! Good luck with your TBR this month, Kourtni! 🙂
