[note note_color=”#85C0C5″ text_color=”#ffffff”]The annual ARC August is finally here! It’s the fifth year. (Holy shit.) Hosted by Octavia and Shelly of Read. Sleep. Repeat, ARC August is an event that helps readers and bloggers get their ARC pile down. The rules are simply:
- You read how many ARCS you want. YOU get to decide.
- The book must be an ARC—physical or electronic. The ARC can be old or new ones. As long as it’s an arc, it’s okay.
- 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.
- Have fun!
I urge you to sign up over here, especially if you have ARCs you need to read! [/note]
ARC August has come to an end, and was it a success or a dud?

It was a semi-success! Out of the 13 that were on my planned ARC August TBR list, I read six of them, which is better than I expected to do! That’s a 46% success rate! Better than I thought I could do. I will still read the books I haven’t finished or started. *cross my fingers*
