So I thought I’d do a quick post about what I read for ARC August. My goal was to read 5 ARCs, but thanks to YALC, some lovely packages off publishers, and my holiday in Lanzarote, I ended up reading 10!
Here’s what I read:
1. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan – 5/5 stars
2. These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch – 3/5 stars
3. Mirage by Somaiya Daud – 5/5 stars (full review here)
4. Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrand – 5/5 stars
5. Damsel by Elana K. Arnold – 3/5 stars
6. Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao – 4/5 stars
7. A Flicker in the Clarity by Amy McNamara – 3/5 stars
8. Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce – 4/5 stars
9. A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood – 5/5 stars
10. Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber – 3/5 stars
So, I read a lot of ARCs that I really loved throughout the month – expect lots of reviews to come! I decided to take a leaf out of Lydia’s book when filling out the ARC August bingo card and used different emojis for each book, and I’m really pleased that I managed to get something for every category besides Finish a 2017 ARC and Finish a Graphic Novel.
Overall, August was definitely a successful reading month for me!
lots of love,
