ARC April 2014

arc april

I've been reading books to judge for the Whitneys, so I'm a little behind in my ARC reading, which is okay. I just plan on getting a lot of that done the last half of April. I thought this would be a great reading challenge to join to help me along. If you're interested in joining, you can go here to sign up. Here are the details:

Tackle that ARC pile you have! Don’t give me that “what ARCs?!” look! You (just like me) have a giant pile of ARCs giving you their best judgey face right now and April is the month you’re going to tackle them, get that NetGalley & Edelweiss ratio up and show publishers that you can be trusted with their babies! You’ll have an amazing support team via the other ARC April participants and most importantly you’ll enter for a chance to win ONE $20 giftcard to a book dealer of your choice, such as B&N, Amazon, TBD, Kobo or iBooks. We’ll have 2 twitter chats during the challenge month and dagnabit I’m going to help you make a dent in that pile and vice versa! The first twitter chat will be April 11th at 8:00pm EST time. Use the #ARCApril hashtag.

My goal is to read as many books as I can. I'll review when I can, but my focus is more on getting them read. Realistically, I should be able to get about 15 books read from NetGalley and Edelweiss. Here are the books that I'll definitely be reading because they're scheduled already on my calendar for review or for tours:

Camp Boyfriend (Camp Boyfriend, #1) Camp Payback (Camp Boyfriend, #2)   
Exile (Exile, #1)   

Here are other ARCs that I need to read that I'll pull from once I've read what I need to for each week:

   Shattered Secrets (Book of Red #1)
   Bewitched in Oz
Grace and the Guiltless Fool and the Dragonox: A Prequel to A Tale of Light and Shadow  

UPDATE: These are the books I manged to read for this challenge (click on the cover to see my review, if available):

The Geography of You and Me  Anyone But You: A Modern-Day Spin on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (Twisted Lit #3)   

So I could have done better, but I still did decent. This doesn't include all the non-ARC books I read for tours and such. According to Goodreads, I read about 27 books in April. That's a pretty crazy amount, so I can't feel too back about not getting as many ARC's in there. Now on to May...
