ARC AUGUST, HERE WE GO AGAIN.

My pile for this ARC August is lesser than the previous times, and that’s because I have finished review copies I gotta get through as well. It’s lookin’ to be a full month of reading, and let’s hope I get back on that reading horse!

Where did the month go? April is now over, which means I gotta reflect back on whether I kicked ass during ARC April. You might remember I pledged to read these arcs in April (+ Tell the Wind and Fire, which isn’t pictured).

And did I?

Hosted by the lovely Octavia at Read.Sleep.Repeat, ARC August is an event that helps readers get their ARC pile down.

August is over, and that means ARC August is over too. :(

It’s time to see how successful I was tackling it!

HOW DID MY ARC AUGUST GO?

Surprisingly very well!

I kicked ass—a decent amount! I thought I wouldn’t get through half of my ARC August TBR pile because I tend to mood read (+ I’m not great at reading from a set list), but that wasn’t the case at all! I read half of my ARC pile—a win in my book! I didn’t feel any pressure to get all my books read, which is a good mindset to be in when you tackle ARC August. It was so wonderful just being able to read.

I was on top of my reading during the first week, but the following weeks didn’t go as well. I didn’t get to finish the books I started because mood reading was settling in my bones. Eeep. Despite that, I still managed to kick ass even if I only finished five books (though the books I started and didn’t finish would be a collective one book, yeah? ;D).

Hosted by the lovely Octavia at Read.Sleep.Repeat, ARC August is an event that helps readers get their ARC pile down.

The rules are simple:

  • It may be a physical ARC or and eARC but it MUST be an ARC.
  • Yes, it can be an ARC of a book that has released as long as it’s an ARC.
  • HAVE FUN WITH THIS! Feeling like you are being “forced” to read is the best way turn a fun event into a yucky obligation.
  • Have an update post! You can update once a week, every other week or once for the whole darn event. (Octavia does a post for each Saturday in August.) This update can be in the form of a blog or tumblr post, vlog, link to your “ARC August 2015″ shelf or even an Instagram pic!

Yes! I’ve decided to partake in ARC August.

I have an abundance of ARCs from publishers and ALA that I need to get through, and ARC August will, hopefully, help me tackle them. I’m a bit worried because I’m not great at reading from set TBR lists, being a mood reader and all, but I will try!

It will be either the best thing I do or the absolute worst. We shall find out. ;)
