#TheReadingQuest Round Up

Read at Midnight‘s #TheReadingQuest Challenge finishes today. It’s been so much fun! Aentee’s challenges always have such a fun points or challenge system to them, I look forward to every one that she organises. Here’s all the books I manged to finish over the challenge, there’s been some great books (and a few meh ones…) and it’s encouraged me to pick up a couple which have been on my ‘to read list’ for a while. What I actually read changed a little from my TBR for this challenge, but I’ve still got some awesome sounding books left over, so I’m just going to keep going until I finish the board (7 left!) even though the challenge is officially over.

ARC AUGUST TBR

Read.Sleep.Repeat is running the 5th ARC August reading challenge. You can see the sign-up post, here. My Netgalley rating’s not too bad — 78% — but I’ve got 9 books to read, so I’d like to get over that magical 80% this month… As long as I don’t request more again. XD

Have you read any of these books? Are you doing ARC August? What are your goals if you are?

All bar one! XD

I was planning to read The Handmaid’s Tale for the Adapted to TV/movie square but I just didn’t have the time. I’ve got it sitting out on my bedside table though cause I really want to read it before I watch the series, so it should end up on the next bingo sheet somewhere.

A Very Arc-ish Readathon: Round Up

a very arcish readathon

This readathon was organised by Aimal over at Bookshelves & Paperbacks. You can find more information in her announcement post, here. I did add another 3 ARCs to my list after the sign ups (no self control) but it did give me a push to get my butt in gear. I’m pleased to say I’ve gotten my NetGalley rating up to 76%, just shy of the 80% goal. I think I’m going to hold off requesting any more for a while and focus on all the other books on my TBR… Unless something awesome comes up 😉

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…
