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 August Challenge

Reading Challenge

hosted at Read. Sleep. Repeat.    Sign- up here

You really need to go to the sign-up page just to read the conversation Octavia has with us. Here's the basics.

If you’re like me you are probably up to your ears in ARC’s and review request. Scratch that. If you’re like me then at this point there is a giant pool somewhere filled with all the ARC’s and review request you currently have.

Type up a post just saying you’re participating then add your link in the linky below! The post can be as detailed (how many ARC’s you have, etc.) or as simple as you want just make sure your mention this post so other people can join! At the end of ARC August I’ll use to pick a winner. See! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! So go on! Start sorting through that review pile, get that post written, and sign up!

Yes, I've got a pile to go through but most of it is upstairs and dinner is on the stove. I have no idea how many I'll get to but my goal is four reviews posted. That winner she's mentioned? $20 gift card for more books!
