#ARCAugust Reading Challenge & Readathon

I keep trying to catch up on the billion and three ARCs I’ve got piled up, and I stumbled across a mention of ARC August on Twitter.

There will also be a “bingo” element to the month long reading challenge, and the bingo card will be posted on August 1. I might use the bingo card to help direct me with what to read next if I’m feeling stuck. We’ll see…
I’m also SUPER PUMPED to see they’re hosting a readathon as well! 

From Read.Sleep.Repeat.:
The rules for the readathon are quite simple.

1. Read as many books as you can in the 48 hours, without sacrificing your personal well being.
2. There’s no restriction on time zone so feel free to stick to whatever time zone you live in.
3. Track your progress using the #ARCAugust hashtag (on any social media platform)!

I’m going to try to talk my good buddy Peekaboo into doing this readathon with me. Read.Sleep.Repeat. will also be hosting another readathon at the end of August to keep people participating in the month long reading challenge motivated.

Here’s my TBR for the month, with the books I intend to focus on during the first readathon in bold. I dunno, do y’all think I can read 31 books in 31 days? LOL

  1. Thanks! 🙂 I do a lot better keeping up with my romance ARCs/egalleys than I do keeping up with the sci-fi/fantasy ones, haha. I'm in the middle of reading Under Control as well as Born to be Wilde and Duke by Default right now – yes, three books at once, I'm nuts! Be sure to check back for reviews on these romances throughout August (and into September). 😉

  2. I did this one year, but thankfully, I don't have TOO many ARCs to read/review though I am going to try and get a bit more ahead in August if I can. I might have to do that read-a-thon though, because I keep missing all the other ones and I think they are fun! Good luck with all of your books!! -Laurenwww.shootingstarsmag.net

  3. My ARC list is over 60 books at this point, and it's just nuts. I'm going to try HARD in August to get caught up on some of the behind ones and stay on top of the August releases… :/ I love readathons! I'm trying to figure out if my husband is going to be camping that weekend or not, and I'm hoping he's not so he can watch the kids while I run off to read in seclusion… haha

  5. Holy shit, there are so many books! I'm curious to see how many you'll manage to read. 😀 My copy of Sea Witch arrived yesterday so hopefully I'm reading that too this month. Good luck, Elley!

  6. I have mighty plans to sequester myself with the lovely Ariel aka Peekaboo aka booksandsass this weekend for the #ARCAugust Readathon and I'm going to do my DARNEDEST to smash out at least 2 books in that 2 days – MAYBE MORE! We'll see, haha. I need to finish the ARC I'm in the middle of TONIGHT so I can start super fresh for August!
