Alright my lovelies, ARC August officially begins in two weeks and I’m so excited I could burst! But I want to clarify the basics.
- You do not have to post what your exact goal is.
I get that people get embarrassed, especially when they don’t exactly conquer something; so no pressure here.
- The gift card is an additional incentive.
It is just a way to make you want to get through those ARC’s, it will be awarded randomly no matter how many you start or finish.
- No pressure!
While I hope you get to review the ARC’s you finish for the publishers benefit, please don’t feel pressured into writing a review immediately for ARC August.
- HAVE FUN!
It’s a challenge sure, but I want you to have fun! We already feel guilty and ashamed, lets lighten the mood a bit!
Now…on to MY goals!
So for ARC August I HOPE to read 20 books! My baby girl will be starting kindergarten (sad face) so I should have some extra time to read! Of these 20 I want to get through:
But I’m also a realist and know two very important things when it comes to ARC August.
1. There will be DNF’s. Don’t give me your judgy face! The fact of the matter is I will not like every book and I firmly believe that torturing myself to finish isn’t right. I’ll read as much as I can and as always I’ll write a thorough and honest review on what I read, but I won’t force myself to do anything I don’t want to.
2. Planning and reality are very different. Even with the little one headed off to school I still have a house to take care of, and errands to run. Will I get through all these books? I have no clue. Will I try my damndest to get through them? Yep.
And for those wondering, no these are not all the ARC’s I have to get through but it definitely is a big chunk! I plan on checking in with you guys once a week, via a wrap up post on Sunday’s just to share what I’ve finished for the week and how I’m coming along. If you’re up to doing a weekly wrap up go for it! At the bottom of all my wrap up post I’ll have a linky just so I can make sure I visit you. So, good luck and happy reading!
