I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

ARC Reading Challenge

I know I said I was going to be more selective in what challenges I joined but this is reading my review books and I'm doing that anyways! The scary thing for this one is seeing how far behind I am on my reviews!

This challenge is being hosted by

Teddy Rose at

So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.

Challenge information and sign-ups are here.
Challenge runs from Jan 2 to Dec 30.

List ALL the ARCs you have right now then add to the list as you receive them. Cross off the ones you've read & reviewed. There are three levels based on how many you do, I'm going for the Gold. There's more but that's the basics.

Q: Some of the books sent to me for review are final copies. Do they count? I hope so, they're on the list. - all of them count, see comments =)

Books arrive from authors, GoodReads, LibraryThing, publicists, publishers and for blog tours.

Thanks for joining the challenge. I use the term ARC loosely, any book a publisher or author gives you with the expectation that you review it, counts.

Reviews posted before Jan 1, 2010 do not count.

I hope you enjoy the challenge!

I understand about the review part but it's nice to have it all out there so I know just how far behind I am!
