ARC August 2018: Introduction

ARC August is an annual month-long reading challenge hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat. in which bloggers are encouraged to tackle their TBRs and read as many advance reader copies as they possibly can in a single month, all while having a whole lot of fun!

In my five years as a book blogger, I’ve heard nothing but wonderful, glowing things about the ARC August reading challenge, which is hosted every August by Read. Sleep. Repeat., and I couldn’t be more excited to finally sign-up and take part this year!

For a number of reasons, 2018 has been a bit of a difficult year for me, so it doesn’t surprise me that my reading has inevitably suffered as a result. I’m currently eight books behind in my Goodreads Challenge, and I think I’ll be lucky if I can manage to read 50 books this year, which is a relatively low figure for me. I thought ARC August might be a fun and creative way to encourage myself to to pick up a few of the recent and upcoming ARCs I’m most excited about. I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read all of the books I’ve chosen for my ARC August to-be-read list below, but if I can manage to read even a small selection of them, I’ll be super pleased! Wish me luck!

The books below have been listed in no particular order.


01. You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn
02. Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian
02. The Other Side Of Lost by Jessi Kirby

04. A Heart In A Body In The World by Deb Caletti
05. Sadie by Courtney Summers
06. The Loneliest Girl In The Universe by Lauren James

07. My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma
08. Nothing Left To Burn by Heather Ezell
09. A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena

10. Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

    Love these book choices! I’m super excited for You’d Be Mine and Sadie. Good luck! Thanks for joining in the fun.

  2. I have a few of the books that you are reading on my list too! I want to try to get through 20 books this month because I’m SO far behind. I hope you get through some of these, but don’t feel too bad if you don’t reach your goal. You are still so amazing!

    You have some great books there. I read 5 of them, and I think 4 of them were 5 stars, the other 4 stars. I can’t wait to read Sadie. I think my September books will be up for reading soon. You’d Be Mine looks like something I would like too. I hope they are all successful reads for you.
