3rd Annual ARC August Sign Ups!

arc august

Hello lovelies!!!! I am very excited to announce that ARC August is coming back for it’s THIRD year!

For those of you new to RSR let me explain ARC August. And to answer your first question, no it is not a month where ARCs of your most anticipated books rain from the heavens and fall directly into your laps.

Despicable Me Sad Face

But don’t be sad! It is a pretty cool (I’m biased) event even if things don’t rain from the heavens!

I started ARC August my first (was it really my first?!) year of blogging, as an attempt to get caught up on my ARCs and get my Netgalley ratio up since it was completely in the shitter (think 32% people) and it wasn’t changing any time soon. And, like they say, misery loves company so I invited my fellow book nerds to tackle their ratios and piles with me and it was GLORIOUS! Not only did we have fun, I really made a dent in my pile! So I’m bringing ARC August back and I am inviting all of YOU to look over those ARCs and show them who’s boss.


 

Rules:

The rules are very simple

  • It may be a physical ARC or eARC but it MUST be an ARC
  • Yes it can be an ARC that has already released; as long as it’s an ARC I’m not going to nit pick really
  • HAVE FUN WITH THIS! Feeling like you are being “forced” to read is the best way turn a fun event into a yucky obligation.
  • Update post! I personally will do a post for each Saturday in August but that’s just me. You can update once a week, every other week or once for the whole darn event. This update can be in the form of a blog/tumblr post, vlog, link to your “ARC August 2015” shelf or even an instagram pic! I want to make this as easy and low pressure as possible for you.

 


 

Treats:

In my post for August 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, and September 5th I will choose ONE participant (and by participant I mean a REAL “I read these ARCs this week for the challenge” participant) to win ONE ARC from my shelves. Which ones are up for grabs you ask? These!!! In order of giveaway just so you know 😉


 

Six of CrowsSix of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
To Be Published September 29th 2015

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

 


SoundlessSoundless by Richelle Mead
To Be Published November 10th 2015

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…

 


ReawakenedReawakened by Colleen Houck
To Be Published August 11th 2015

When seventeen-year-old Lilliana Young enters the Metropolitan Museum of Art one morning during spring break, the last thing she expects to find is a live Egyptian prince with godlike powers, who has been reawakened after a thousand years of mummification.

And she really can’t imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe to find his brothers and complete a grand ceremony that will save mankind.

But fate has taken hold of Lily, and she, along with her sun prince, Amon, must travel to the Valley of the Kings, raise his brothers, and stop an evil, shape-shifting god named Seth from taking over the world.

 


DreamstriderDreamstrider by Lindsay Smith
To Be Published October 6th, 2015

A high-concept, fantastical espionage novel set in a world where dreams are the ultimate form of political intelligence.

Livia is a dreamstrider. She can inhabit a subject’s body while they are sleeping and, for a short time, move around in their skin. She uses her talent to work as a spy for the Barstadt Empire. But her partner, Brandt, has lately become distant, and when Marez comes to join their team from a neighborhing kingdom, he offers Livia the option of a life she had never dared to imagine. Livia knows of no other dreamstriders who have survived the pull of Nightmare. So only she understands the stakes when a plot against the Empire emerges that threatens to consume both the dreaming world and the waking one with misery and rage.

A richly conceived world full of political intrigue and fantastical dream sequences, at its heart Dreamstrider is about a girl who is struggling to live up to the potential before her.

 


The Scorpion RulesThe Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
To Be Published September 22nd, 2015

A world battered by climate shift and war turns to an ancient method of keeping peace: the exchange of hostages. The Children of Peace – sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals – are raised together in small, isolated schools called Preceptures. There, they learn history and political theory, and are taught to gracefully accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.

Greta Gustafsen Stuart, Duchess of Halifax and Crown Princess of the Pan-Polar Confederation, is the pride of the North American Prefecture. Learned and disciplined, Greta is proud of her role in keeping the global peace, even though, with her country controlling two-thirds of the world’s most war-worthy resource — water — she has little chance of reaching adulthood alive.

Enter Elián Palnik, the Prefecture’s newest hostage and biggest problem. Greta’s world begins to tilt the moment she sees Elián dragged into the school in chains. The Prefecture’s insidious surveillance, its small punishments and rewards, can make no dent in Elián, who is not interested in dignity and tradition, and doesn’t even accept the right of the UN to keep hostages.

What will happen to Elián and Greta as their two nations inch closer to war?


So who’s in? Are you ready to get your ARC TBR list in shape? Well get those sign up post started and link it below! Remember, be as optimistic (20 ARCs?!) or laid back (3 or 4? whatevs) as you want with your goal. Just remember that this is your chance to get that list of yours together and that Netgalley ratio UP!

I had like no followers, so I requested so many books thinking I would only get a select few due to the lack of following I had. Then, I found Christy and was so lucky and got into her blog. Then, I was able to use that info and the approvals when through the roof. So, now I’m stuck with so many old ARCs and this Read-A-Thon is perfect to get those out of the way.

    I signed up today as I have quite a large NG & EW Pile to read and review. Then there are the BEA ARC’s. I know that I need to read them, review them. I’m hoping to read 15, but think I will only manage five because of Real Life. This sounds like fun though.
