This year is all about knocking books off that ever-growing TBR pile. At least, in theory. It does, however, seem that I’m still NOT doing a very good job because I keep acquiring more books and reading shiny new ones.
ARC August Reading Challenge
This year I’ll join the ARC August Reading Challenge. I saw it late in the challenge last year and made a note to sign-up for this year’s challenge. So, here we are. My goal is get my reviews posted a day or two before the release day.
I have a lot of ARCs that I need to read. However I’m going to keep my ARC TBR limited to what’s coming out in August and September. Continue reading
Classics Club Spin #18
Alright, here we go! I decided to participate in The Classics Club Spin #18. I thought I was participating overall, but couldn’t find my list of 50 classic books. I mean, not that it really matters because I probably would still have 50 books on my list.
Anyway, how does the Spin work? It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Really. Choose 20 books from your Classics Club list that you have yet to read and post the list to your blog before August 1st. On the morning of August 1st a number between 1 & 20 will post and you’ll have until August 31st to read your Spin book and post a review. What!? How simple could that be? Continue reading
6° of Separation with a Twist
Hi all, this year I’m a blog host for Biannual Bibliothon. The Bibliothon runs from July 14th- July 20th, so mark your calendars. My host day is July 17th, so be sure to stop back by and link up your challenge post.

So, how does it work? Continue reading
The Votes Are In
Thank you to all that voted on the books I would read for the Make Me Read It and Bout of Books readathons and for the month of August.
The Make Me Read It readathon. It’s hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley runs from August 6th – 13th. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 months since the last Bout of Books and excited for BoB20, which will run from August 21-27. I’m sure it’ll be just as much fun.
Without further adieu, the breakdown. . . Continue reading
