ARC August Recap

September 6, 2017

September is in full swing now, which means #ARCAugust has sadly come to an end. Due to moving back to school, prepping and beginning my senior year, having two leadership roles on campus this year, and catching up with friends after being abroad during spring semester, most of my August was jammed packed with to-do lists, events, work, meetings, and classes. However, I was still able to participate in ARC August at the beginning of the month and read 5 books before the craziness began!

For #ARCAugust, I read Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock, The Color Project by Sierra Abrams, The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas, Breakaway by Cate Cameron, and The Big by Maggie Ann Martin! I still need to write reviews for two books, so look for them coming to the blog soon. Overall, I am happy with the progress I made during this month and enjoyed all of my reads!

How did #ARCAugust go for you? What was your favorite read?

    5 books is pretty good, especially when you were so busy!! I really liked The Darkest Corners when I read it last year. I read her new book, Little Monsters, in July and it was just as good 🙂 The Big F was one I wanted to get to last month, but wasn’t in the mood for that type of book– I’m definitely going to get to it when I’m feeling more light-romantic Contemporary.

      I read Little Monsters in July too and loved it! The Big F is the perfect book to save for a contemporary mood read 🙂

    I read 5 ARCS for #ARCAugust too. My favorite was Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely!!

      I’ve been wanting to read Gunslinger Girl so badly! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

    Reading has been going by in a blur for me. I’m reading A LOT but not remembering much.
    I finally got caught up on all my arc’s in August so maybe picking what I want to read will help with that.

      Congrats on getting caught up on all of your ARCs! Hopefully you’ll start to read more rememberable books soon.
