ARC August + A Giveaway!


Hey babes! So I recently heard about this great thing called ARC AUGUST! I found out from the lovely Adele, and decided to participate! 

One of the great things about working at a bookstore is access to ARCs, but the drawback of that is piles and piles of books I will never, ever get to. This is a perfect opportunity for me to read some of the ARCs I've been hoarding as well as pass some along! 

I generally read about 10-12 books per month, so I'm aiming for six ARCs from my pile. 
  1. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden.  My boss handed to me and said the Random House rep told her that lovers of Uprooted will love this story based on a Russian folk tale.
  2. The Graces by Laure Eve. I started this one a while ago and didn't get very far, but I'm excited to pick it back up.
  3. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake.  This one looks absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to pick it up!
  4. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge.  The one is supposed to be an apocalyptic R + J retelling.  Should be interesting!
  5. Georgia Peaches and other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown.  It's gay so I'm into it.
  6. 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac. Also gay. Into it.
In addition to these I'd like to read My Lady Jane,  And I Darken, and FEED this month.  

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!

The books that are up for grabs are:
  1. The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon
  2. Disruption by Jessica Shrivington
  3. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
  4. Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst 
  5. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
  6. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

This is a Rafflecopter giveaway and I'm super excited for it! 

Rules:

  • U.S. entries only!

  • Following my tumblr is the only mandatory entry, but there are other options as well!
Good luck!

    1. I didn't love Of Fire and Stars as much as I thought I would, but I'd built it up pretty high. It was still good, though! I'm reading Three Dark Crowns right now!

  8. I've been waiting to read Torch Against the Night ever since I finished the first book, An Ember in the Ashes. I absolutely loved the authors writing style, and the storyline almost felt historical but included new types of fantasy. It's always a major plus to read something that hasn't been over done. I don't usually win anything, but I figured there's no harm in trying :) I love reading new books or having books recommeded to me, especially becasue I don't really know anyone who is as into reading as I am. It would be more than awesome to win!!!

  25. I read FEED for a YA Lit class in college and enjoyed it - it's a terrifying but also cool look into the possible future. I just started reading My Lady Jane and it is so delightful. I would also be hella stoked to get an ARC copy of The Sun Is Also A Star! I looooved Everything, Everything and am going to try to meet her at YALLFEST in November.
