ARC August Wrap-Up

ARCASo this month did not go at all, how I planned. I was totally expecting to be out of my reading slump and tackling my very ambitious 24 books for ARC August.

Well, that did not happen. I read 3 books and DNFed another 4. I blame my lackluster reading on a bunch of family stress.

So I really didn’t do as well as I wanted to, but I’m okay with that. I got rid of books that had been on my list for MONTHS, so YAY me.

If you did ARC August, how did you do?

3rd Annual ARC August

Hi you guys!

So it was a spur of the moment decision to participate in ARC August. I think (but I cannot remember for sure) that I participated last year.

It’s mostly to help all of us bloggers catch up on ARCs that we need to read and it’s co-hosted by Shelly & Octavia of Read. Sleep. Repeat.

I love this idea because I am so far behind in my ARC reading. I took a bit of an ambitious risk with this and posted 24 book covers that represent the 24 books I plan on reading this month.

Challenge Participation for 2014

Hello guys, this post will be less of a discussion post and more of a post letting you guys know what blogger challenges and events that I am participating in this year.

The first one is a year round challenge that encourages us to clean out our e-Readers. Read these Edelweiss review copies or those Netgalley review copies.It is being hosted by Emily @ Falling For YA. Definitely go check out the initial post. Make sure to grab the participation button that she has made specifically for this challenge.

I am really excited about this one as I am trying to get my feedback percentage for Netgalley up to an acceptable percentage. I went a little Netgalley crazy when I first started blogging in April of 2013 so my percentage is not what I want it to be. I’m determined to bring my percentage up considerably. As for Edelweiss grabs, things have gotten slightly out of control ever since I was whitelisted for HarperTeen & Harlequin Teen’s titles.

Now onto the second one that I signed up for just yesterday. The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon being co-hosted by Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books & Kate @ Kates Tales Of Books And Bands. This is an event to share the blogger love and even get acquainted with a bunch of new blogs that you may never have known about before.I will let both Katelyn and Alexa tell you all of the information.

So go check out both of these events/challenges whatever you want to call them and consider participating.I wasn’t going to participate in anything this year but I decided to limit myself and only pick a couple of events/challenges to participate in.And these are the two I’ve picked.
