So… I’m fairly new to this whole “review request/ARC” thing, seeing as I’m fairly new to this “book review blog” thing… But I’m learning! ARC August is hosted at Read Sleep Repeat, and the challenge is to read all (or at least a lot) of your ARC/Review Request books in the month of August! Want to know more? Check out the original post from Read Sleep Repeat:
If you’re like me you are probably up to your ears in ARC’s and review request. Scratch that. If you’re like me then at this point there is a giant pool somewhere filled with all the ARC’s and review request you currently have. And I know what your saying…
“Octavia there isn’t enough hours in the day”
“Octavia I’m just not in the historical-paranormal-high-fantasy-fiction mood today”
“Octavia! I just want to be lazy today!!
I know this is what’s going through your mind because I say the same things! But today I’m giving you a chance to get over your excuses and make a dent in that giant ARC pile. So here’s the skinny on this challenge:
You: “Octavia how long will ARC August last?”
Me: “Umm…all of August. From the 1st – 31st.”
You: “Octavia what kind of ARC counts?”
Me: “That’s a better question! All ARC’s count. NetGalley’s, Edelweiss’s, physical copies, upcoming releases….past due releases (yes I’m looking at you).
You: “What’s my motivation?! I just want to be lazy today!”
Me: “Isn’t getting through that giant pile motivation enough?!”
Me: “Ok ok! In addition to helping you get through that pile (YOUR WELCOME!) I’ll also throw in a $20 gift card to a book dealer of your choice. Because what’s the point of reading all those books if you can’t buy more?!
You: “20 bucks?! Alright I’m in! How do I sign up?”
Me: That’s the really easy part. Type up a post just saying you’re participating then add your link in the linky below! The post can be as detailed (how many ARC’s you have, etc.) or as simple as you want just make sure your mention this post so other people can join! At the end of ARC August I’ll use Random.org to pick a winner. See! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! So go on! Start sorting through that review pile, get that post written, and sign up!
So head on over to Read Sleep Repeat, and sign up! I’m super excited for this one! I may not be able to be posting reviews all through the time, (due to my vacation WITHOUT ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY), but I’ll be doing it as much as possible. :)
