ARC August: Week 1 Update
Week 1 of ARC August, hosted by Miss O, of Read Sleep Repeat
, has drawn to a close. I set a stretch goal to read 3 books per week, and I’m happy to say that I’m right on track. (I also said I’d review all of the books, and so far, I’m only one for three. Gotta get crackin’!) So, here’s what happened in week 1:
I finished The Deepest Night by Shana Abe. This was not a part of my ARC August goals since I began reading it during the last week of July. I assumed I’d have it finished before the end of July, but alas, I finished it on August 1. Therefore, I’m counting it! I haven’t written my review yet, but I’m thinking 2.5 stars. It was pretty good, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as The Sweetest Dark, the first book in the series. I don’t think I’ll read any more of the series, assuming it continues.
Next up was Doon
, and I strayed from my goals again. I had been looking forward to reading this book, and it popped up on NG after I posted my goals. I was approved, and since it’s being published in August, I pushed it to the top of my TBR. I am sorry to say that it was a major disappointment, and I think I was generous with my 2 star review
I finished Night Film
today, and (yay!) this was actually on my ARC goals. This was over 600 pages, and I’ve been reading it since Sunday. I enjoyed it, but I’m happy to be moving on! This will be a challenging (and likely, short) review, since it’s so spoiler-prone.
Up next: I’m hoping to read Fangirl, All Our Yesterdays, and The Girl of Fire and Thorns in week 2. (No, that last one is not an ARC, but I have The Bitter Kingdom, and I still need to read the first two books.)
As always, goals are subject to change at my every whim!
Let me know how you’re doing in ARC August!
