#ARCAugust: How Did I Do?

arc-august2

I had some lofty goals for #ARCAugust.

I would like to say that I read every book I put on my TBR, but I didn’t. This month was a pretty huge month ARC wise and I was super blessed to get a lot of books that I’ve been dying to read! So, while everything I read this month was an ARC, not all of them were on my TBR.

ORIGINAL #ARCAUGUST TBR:

  • THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD by D.E. Night
  • THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn
  • AS YOU WISH by Chelsea Sedoti
  • THE PRINCE AND THE DRESSMAKER by Jen Wang
  • STARSWEPT by Mary Fan
  • MEET CUTE by Various Authors
  • NICE TRY, JANE SINNER by Lianne Oelke
  • STARFISH by Akemi Dawn Bowman
  • THE WONDERLING by Mira Bartok

WHAT I ACTUALLY READ:

  • THE NIGHT CHILD by Anna Quinn
  • THE PRINCE AND THE DRESSMAKER by Jen Wang
  • NICE TRY, JANE SINNER by Lianne Oelke
  • AS YOU WISH by Chelsea Sedoti
  • THE EPIC CRUSH OF GENIE LO by F.C. Yee
  • I’M THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY by Andrea Jarrell
  • PRINCE IN DISGUISE by Stephanie Kate Strohm
  • IN REAL LIFE by Cory Doctorow
  • WILD BEAUTY by Anna-Marie McLemore
  • T IS FOR TREE by Greg Fowler
  • THE DAYBREAK BOND by Megan Blakemore (DNF)
  • THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD by D.E. Night
  • STARSWEPT by Mary Fan (DNF)

The main goal for me during #ARCAugust was to clear my NetGalley. Which I almost did… until I apparently requested 12 more titles (and was approved for all of them) in my sleep. So, I’m kind of back at square one on that front.

However, I had a lot of fun blazing through 13 ARCs this month and it did make me feel a lot better about my impending NetGalley doom.

Did you participate in #ARCAugust? How did you do?

  1. Although you didn’t hit your goal, you still read a lot more books than most of my friends or I did. Sometimes it’s more important to focus on quality books instead of the quantity you have read. Which ones do you most recommend?

  3. Ahh, you read so many amazing books for ARC August!! I am SO excited for Wild Beauty and can’t wait to get my hands on it! I’ve heard wonderful things about it so far.
    Are you still planning to read Starfish soon? I read it during August and looooved it. It’s definitely one of my favorite reads so far this year.
