#ARCAugust 2019 Sign-Up


ARC August is an annual event hosted by the lovely ladies at Read.Sleep.Repeat.

The rules of ARC August couldn’t be simpler:

  • Any Advanced Reading Copy (digital or physical) counts as part of this reading challenge
  • No blog is necessary to participate
  • Use the hashtag #ARCAugust on social media to check-in

There’s no pressure, you set your own target.  It’s just about having fun and getting through some ARCs. And on the subject of fun, there are other activities running alongside the main challenge.

I’ve signed up again because it’s the perfect motivation for me to focus on the NetGalley titles and other ARCs I have with publication dates in August plus books I need to read for blog tours this month.  I’ve kept my target realistic (OK, relatively realistic) at just six ARCs.  Clicking on the title will take you to the book description on Goodreads or my review.

  1. I do have an ARC of the Tracy Chevalier so would qualify to take part. But I’m already doing 20booksofsummer and falling behind on that score. Plus I’m so tempted by women in translation month. There are way too many interesting challenges and events in August!!

    1. Haha, I’m behind on 20 Books of Summer too (only finished eight so far) and none of the books I’ve selected for ARC August are on that list unfortunately. I know the “rules” for 20 Books of Summer allow us to amend our list but I like to try (probably foolishly) to stick to my original list.


  2. I’m so useless at challenges, but I have read This Mortal Boy by Fiona Kidman and listened to her speak about it on BBC Radio4. I’ll try and slip in my review amount all my August reads of women in translation! We’ll there is a challenge I do like to participate in, it fits perfectly with my reading philosophy so isn’t really too much of a challenge. 😊
