ARC August Update/Conclusion

Posted September 1, 2013 by Emily in bookish challenges / 10 Comments

So you guys, remember when I created that post about how I was participating in ARC August hosted by Octavia at at Read. Sleep. Repeat. If you want, you can find that post at ARC August. Don’t know what it is? Visit that post to find out (it has all the links you need). Want to join? Maybe next time (August is now over.)

Anyways, I didn’t really set a goal coming into this challenge mainly because it kept changing. (I kept finding ARCs I didn’t know I had and then looking for ones that I don’t have…). I actually read more ARCs than I thought I would. I really need to thank Octavia for hosting this challenge.

I read and finished…

That’s a total of 4 ARCs, plus 2 if you count finalized copies of books that are yet to be published as ARCs.

Why didn’t I read more? Well, 2 reasons. 1) I could only find these 4 ARCs (not including the 2 ARCs I had already read and reviewed) and 2) Even if I did have more ARCs I doubt I wold have finished another one. I had to do summer reading for school. Still, I am extremely happy that I managed to finish reading these books. But I have yet to write the reviews… and it’s going to be a while until I do. Why? Well, because SCHOOL STARTS NEXT WEEK! 🙁

I still can’t believe today is the last day of August…

  1. Awesome job!! And those books look fantastic!! You read a lot!
    I’ve been dyin to read the beautiful and the Cursed! The cover is do cool and the premise is sooo interesting! Hope to hear your thoughts on it soon! Nice work!!

    • The Beautiful and the Cursed is really good. I crammed everything in August because it’s the last month of freedom and the only time I’ll have in a while to really read (cough, school). I don’t usually read that much… Thanks for stopping by! 😀

  2. This challenge is really neat. You read a lot! I did horrible in August. I think I only read 2 books. Although my average is 5, so that’s not that much anyway. I am a super slow reader, obviously. Glad you were able to go through your ARCs, and I’ll look out for your reviews when you can squeeze time in and write them 😉

    • My average is usually a lot lower. But I was motivated by a lot of things this month so… The reviews are probably going to come really late, just warning you. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    • Oh, I only got back to school today so I had a lot of time in August. As for events… let’s just say most of them are started, but not finished. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
