It is already one week through ARC August and…I haven’t read a single book?? I have honestly been feeling a little book slumpy/book hungover since reading WARCROSS (I know, I’m talking about that book on literally every post this week I’m sorry I just love it so much!!) and not in the mood to read anything else, even though I have a WILDCARD ARC and so many other ARCs I could read. I just…ugh, I need a plan. A plan of ATTAAAAACCCKKKKKKkkk for ze books.
I recently started making a written record of the ARCs and eARCs I have, starting with my eARCs for this year and my eARCs that I still want to read from last year. I want to start knocking off some backlist titles as well as some titles from just earlier this year that I haven’t gotten around to yet.
So, my basic pattern plan, even though I can never stick to a reading schedule because I am a huge mood reader, is this:
2018 eARC–>2017 eARC–>physical 2018 ARC–>REPEAT!!
I am hoping this plan will aid me in getting out of my slumpiness and help me knock out a good number of ARCs before the end of August. Plus there’s Bout of Books during my BIRTHDAY WEEK in a couple of weeks and I plan to use my staycation to read the crap out of some books I’ve been meaning/needing to read.
Anyway. Here are some of the books I want to read for ARC August now with this pattern:
Honestly I really just want to take a break from reading for a couple weeks but I always feel so guilty about not reading. So maybe one of these books will catch my attention.
