Hello everyone! I hope your day is going well. For me, since I tend to queue my posts, I hope it’s raining by the time this has been posted. I’m actually currently on vacation, doing some family stuff. I’m not actually in my home town at all. I’m 8-ish hours away actually!
As you can see by the title of this post, this is my first Arc August Update! I figure I’m doing pretty well actually. Let’s see how I’m doing.
I’ve read two of the five books on my list as of a few days ago! I have three books to finish. When I sit down and set out to read an arc book, I get anxious (anyone else that way??) I want to like the book I’m reading, but there’s always a chance that I won’t, and that scares me. I just never know whether or not I’ll like it until I start reading.
The books I’ve read are:
- How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karole Cozzo (my review)
- Everything You and I Could Have Been If We Weren’t You and I by Albert Espinosa
I’m going to try to get a review up for EYAICHBIWWYAI by before the end of August.
The three books I have left to read are genres that I’m very excited to read!! Yes, I said genres. Not titles, or authors…I mean genres.
Risuko by David Kudler, is a fantasy novel set in the Historical Times (lol), but I don’t know from what exact time, or this is such a fantasy novel that the author has chosen to make his own world playing off our own. Nevertheless to say, I’m just excited to read Risuko in general. Especially so, because the cover for this book has a silhouet of–I’m assuming– the main character, and they’re holding a sword!!!!
Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon is a YA Contemporary Mystery. I feel like there’re so many good YA Mystery books that I’m missing out on–so if you have any recommendations, I’ll gladly take them under consideration. — What I remember about the synopsis of this book is that the main characters best friend is a murderer, and for the last few years her town hasn’t let her forget it. I can feel the bullying from the town already! I’m not too excited about that; and I’m also not excited about the fact that there’s a secondary character (I don’t know if he gets a POV in this story) who teaches the MC to rock what she already has.
Resurrecting Sunshine by Lisa A. Koosis is a YA Sci-Fi book. I’m not too sure about this one but the cover (it’s so pretty) drew me in to check out the book, and since the synopsis sounded interesting enough, I’ve decided to give it a try. I suspect that I probably won’t like this book, but that’s okay!
Maybe the heat of the undying sun has me wanting to seek out genres I don’t normally read. And I mean the sun is totally glaring down on this town during the day. Today was almost 30 degrees Celsius, and tomorrow (when this posts) it’s supposed to go down a few degrees, but I don’t know….
I have a question for you all; if you don’t mind: for those of us participating in ArcAugust2016, how are you doing in your challenges?? Are there any set backs, or are you powering on through?
Thank you so much for reading my post! Good luck to us all!
