Feature: ARC August Wrap-Up

Well I made a 6 book goal list…and I should have known it would never happen. One year I will say look I am going to read a few ARCs for #ARCAugust, and then maybe I will read like 10 books! I swear my brain does this thing, if I have a deadline or make a goal, I just can’t accomplish it. I can’t participate in readalongs, or buddy read. I just can’t. What is wrong with me?

ANYWAYS, here was my lofty goal TBR:

  1. Infinity Son by Adam Silvera
  2. Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh
  3. Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
  4. Reverie by Ryan La Sala
  5. Rage by Cora Carmack
  6. Hello Girls by Brittany Cavallaro & Emily Henry

I read 2 of these. TWO dammit. I read Wicked Fox and Rage. They were both freaking excellent. I haven’t written my reviews for either of them yet as well. I need a swift kick in the ass.

I know I also need to give myself a break because I was really sick in August and even spent 4 days in the hospital. When I was in the hospital I tried to read so desperately. I tried audiobooks, I tried graphic novels, I tried single issue comics…I COULDN’T READ A SINGLE PAGE. I blame the morphine.

While it wasn’t on my TBR goals, I also read Frankly In Love by David Yoon. I technically finished it on September 2nd, but who is keeping track? Not me.

So yeah, I did get some reading accomplished in August, just not all the ARCs I wanted to read. I read a total of 10 books or 11 if I count Frankly In Love, since I started it in August, I am going to keep adding it in my totals. LOL

Did you have a good reading month? I think 10 books a month is my average but losing a whole week seemed worse until I put the numbers on paper. But of course I didn’t read what I should have!

Christy’s ARC August

I somehow forgot to put my list in our last post? Guess that tells you how my August went LOL. I read 26 books in August and 11 of them were ARCs! Pretty good, I’ll say. It was also Thriller-A-Thon so you can see I read quiet a few thrillers at the end of the month.

  1. Switchback by Danika Stone
  2. The Revolution of Birdie Randolph by Brandy Colbert
  3. Don’t Say a Word by Amber Lynn Natusch
  4. Thirteen by Steve Cavanaugh
  5. Wilder Girls by Rory Power
  6. The Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay
  7. The Quiet You Carry by Nikki Barthelmess
  8. Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig
  9. When She Reigns by Jodi Meadows
  10. Queen of Ruin by Tracy Banghart
  11. Swipe Right for Murder by Derek Milman

  1. I’m totally the opposite and do better with pressure. I don’t know it I’ll always be that way though. I think it’s great that you were able to read some arcs even if you didn’t hit your goal. I missed mine by one book. I was hoping for ten arcs and read nine.
