You may have seen my tweet the other day about hosting #ARCApril in order to clear down some of my own ARCs. I’m super lucky that I get sent early copies of books by publishers but working full time and having a social life do get in the way of my reading time. I also have a lot of books that I have bought myself that I also want to read. Therefore, I wanted to use April to read only ARCs and early finished copies. Most of which are coming out in April or afterwards.
Unfortunately, #ARCApril had been previously used by some bloggers back in 2016 and I was asked to change the name. Therefore, thanks to Connie, #ARCAttack was born and will be going ahead in April instead of #ARCApril. If you are going to participate, please use #ARCAttack instead of #ARCApril.
So, what am I reading for #ARCAttack, I hear you ask? Well, I have a few books that I do want to read and I’m going to try my best to read them. I am starting a new job in April so I am a little worried that will affect my reading as I’ll be settling into that but I do get an hour for lunch every day so that’s an extra 30 minutes of reading time in the day which I plan to read in. We’ll see, I’m just going to try my best!
Without further ado, here are the books I am planning to read for #ARCAttack…
These are in order of importance to me. The top two books are coming out in April and the bottom two books are released in May, but I want to read all of them. I especially want to make sure I read A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder because I have been saving it since July to read it closer to its release date in May.
- Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds
- Viper by Bex Hogan
- A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
- Romanov by Nadine Brandes
Both of these books are coming out at the beginning of April so I really need to get a move on with them. I am thinking of starting The Princess and the Fangirl prior to April if I can just to give myself a bit of a head start on my list of books to read in April as there are so many!
- The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
- The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
ARCs Now Released
Now, if I do get through the above books then I want to move onto ARCs that I received that are now out in the world because they deserve it. I wish I had a super reading speed that allowed me to read 30 books a month, but unfortunately I was not blessed by the book Gods with that talent. It’s unlikely I’ll get to all of them, but I can try!
- The Antidote by Shelley Sackier
- The Truth About Keeping Secrets by Savannah Brown
- Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
- The Girl King by Mimi Yu
- The Familiars by Stacey Halls
- Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye
So that’s my list of books to read for #ARCAttack leading to a total of 12 books to read in April. I mean, that’s a lot for me so I do really doubt that I will read that many, especially when so many of them are a decent size but I would really like to give this a go and I hope you’ll get involved too!
