#ARCAugust 2016 | Here Be The Books…

Oh boy, ARC August is back and I can’t wait to jump in. I’ve been falling terribly behind in both reading and reviewing this year and it’s about time I got caught up again. With that said, I’m going to post below literally every single book that is in my TBR pile at the moment. Obviously I’m not going to get through ALL of them in August, but I can at least hopefully make a good dent in the pile!

The Books


Here’s my current stats on NetGalley. As you can see, I’ve got a fair way to go before I hit the suggested feedback ratio percentage, never mind 100%. With that in mind, here are the ARCs that are currently in my NetGalley TBR:

  57. A Robot in the Garden – Deborah Install
  58. The Summer That Melted Everything – Tiffany McDaniel
  59. Thin Air – Michelle Paver

So, that’s all the ebooks from NetGalley. Here’s all the other ARCs that I have – either ebook or paperback:

  1. Girl In Pieces – Kathleen Glasgow
  2. Beast on the Broch – John K. Fulton
  3. Poppy Pym and the Pharoah’s Curse – Laura Wood
  4. Tell Us Something True – Dana Reinhardt

  16. Keep You Close – Lucy Whitehouse
  17. My Husband’s Wife – Jane Corry
  18. The Winner’s Curse – Marie Rutkoski
  19. Unrivalled – Alyson Noél

So, adding them all together, my current ARC TBR is 78 books. There’s no way I’ll be able to read that many in one month – unless I did absolutely nothing else and even then I’d struggle!

Along with trying to read the ARCs that I have, I’m also going to try and get caught up with my reviews as well. Here’s the reviews I still need to write up and post:

  1. In Real Life – Jessica Love
  2. Nina Is Not OK – Shappi Khorsandi
  3. With Malice – Eileen Cook
  4. The Inquisition – Taran Matharu
  5. Disclaimer – Renee Knight
  6. Lying In Wait – Liz Nugent
  7. Nevernight – Jay Kristoff
  8. Buy Buy Baby – Helen Mackinven
  9. The Killing Jar – R.S. McCoy

I also have numerous non-ARC reviews to write up, but I’m only going to focus on ARC reviews during August.

    • Yeah, I’m not expecting to get through all of them but I do a thing I’ve dubbed Sort It September which was inspired by ARC August and it basically means I get to focus on my ARCs for 2 months instead of just 1 haha. Girl In Pieces does sound so good. I’m hoping to pick it up early in the month 🙂
