Very Arc-ish Readathon: Sign-up & TBR

a very arcish readathon

This readathon is being organised by Aimal over at Bookshelves & Paperbacks, running from April 1st to 30th. You can find more information in her announcement post, here.

This readathon is exactly what I need at the moment, because I have a good number of ARCs to get through and the publishing dates are looming  (or, I’m sorry to say, passed). I’m not sure how many of these I’ll get through this month, what with it being Camp NaNo too, but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Three that I’ve already started and just need to finish.

And seven that I need still need to start…

TOP 10 TUESDAY: SHORT STORIES

Read In One Sitting Theme: ten of the shortest books I’ve read, top ten books I read in one sitting, ten books to read when you are short on time, top ten books that will make you read the whole day away, etc.. From The Broke and the Bookish.

These are all relatively short stories that woul be perfect for padding out a reading challenge or two. They can all be easily read in one sitting, and are great stories anyway.
