SoManyPreciousBooksSoLittleTime is hosting an ARC reading challenge. I’ve never actually participated in a blog challenge before and I have a bunch of ARCs that need to be read, so I might as well participate!
1-3 ARCs, pick at least one to read and review
4-6 ARCs, pick two to read and review
7-9 ARCs, pick 3
10+ ARCs, pick at least 4.
I debated whether to only include ARCs that have yet to be released, all ARCs I have, or all books I’ve been sent to review. I think I’m going to go with all ARCs I have, although the ones that haven’t been released yet probably have priority anyway.
Here’s what I’ve got (although I think more are on their way):
- Zoe’s Tale by John Scalzi
- Water Keep by J. Scott Savage
- The Spirit of the Place by Samuel Shem
- The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
- The Glimmer Palace by Beatrice Colon
- Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
- The Air We Breathe by Andrea Barrett
- The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
- Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
- White Mary by Kira Salak
The last one is only theoretically coming, but I’m sure even if it doesn’t I’ll end up with at least one more ARC by September. Honestly, I’m hoping at I’ll have all of these (at least other than 6, 7, and 9) read by mid-September, because most of them were sent to me to review and I don’t want to get way past the release date. “Water Keep,” in particular I really have to read, as I’m participating in the blog tour. All that being said, here’s my list of ‘must reads’:
- The Spirit of the Place
- Water Keep
- The Lace Reader
- The Glimmer Palace
These are chosen based on how long I’ve had them/how strong I feel my obligation to get them reviewed is.
