August 9, 2015 Challenges, Features & Spotlights 11

Well week one flew by! As promised, every week during the challenge Shelly and I will have an update for you of the books we finished (or didn’t) along with potential review dates!

Shelly’s Update

My first couple of days were really productive but the last couple haven’t been. I’ve been trying hard to read but I keep going out with friends and now I’m doing Pitch Wars (writing contest) which takes a lot more energy and effort and my internship.. but I’m trying!

Here are the books I’ve read:

After the Red Rain Everything, Everything  Bright Lights, Dark NightsDreamstrider

1. After the Red Rain: DNF Review here
2. Everything, Everything: 5 star review to be posted on August 28th
3. Bright Lights, Dark Nights, 4 star review here
4. Dreamstrider, 4 star review to be posted on October 1st

Reading goals for next week:

Don't Fail Me Now Every Word (Every, #2) Tonight the Streets Are Ours

I hope to finish these pretties next week, but I’m not sure how it’ll go! I do have a ton of September ARCs I need to finish + now a ton of October ones!shelly sig

Octavia’s Update

My first week was…..well I wasn’t Shelly that’s for sure! I picked up 3 different books and so far only one has hooked me!

I DNFed:
A History of Glitter and Blood









I picked up, sort of liked but then lost all interest in:









I’m currently reading, loving, and am completely creeped out by:
The Dead House









I may try and read Mechanica later, since it does seem interesting but I really can’t tell you when that “later” will be.

My reading goals for next week are (not including finishing The Dead House):



Public Enemies  Reawakened The Accident Season

In addition to this week’s status update I am extremely excited to be giving away my spare ARC of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo!

I’m so proud and happy that you all have decided to tackle those piles of ARCs you have and that is why this giveaway is EXCLUSIVELY for ARC August participants. Just link your update post in the linky below and I will have this weeks winner announced next week during the next giveaway. Which means you have nearly a full week to get that update post up and linked! NO EXCUSES! 😉

    Technically I finished 3, and DNFed 1. But when I made my post I counted it it as four books for the week. O am having a lot of fun participating, and it has really helped me put myself ahead of my gigantic ARC pile.

    Have a great week ladies! <3

    I don’t want to enter the giveaway, because I already have Six of Crows. I’m happy that I already got a review written, and I’m proud that I was somehow able to compare it to Avatar. XD I envy both of your progress(es? Is this correct?)! I just finished another ARC, Armada, and that puts my progress at 21% only. And I plan to finish this in two weeks too.
