3rd Annual ARC August Final Update

ARC August was created by Octavia at Read. Sleep. Repeat. The point of this tag is for us readers and bloggers to get through that stack of ARCs that has been building up. 

So... the ARCs I read this week...

*sigh* Nope. Nothing this week. I even failed in posting my reviews of Legacy of Kings and Illuminae this week. 

How do I feel about this?


I just finished The Assassin's Blade, you have no idea how much the above gif represents how I feel. My heart is somehow broken and soaring at the same time. In fact, I'll be spending the rest of the weekend binge reading this series. Who's with me?!

Here are the ARCs I did read for ARC August:

Just need to edit this review and then it will be posted within the next couple of days.

ARC August was so much fun, and I'm so glad I did it. I didn't tackle as many ARCs as I wanted to but oh well! It was great getting to know a lot of the people who participated in this as well. I would definitely do this again. 

How did you guys fare this month?


  1. The Throne of Glass series is SO good! I hope that you enjoy it and don't get it spoiled at all! I'm excited for Riders and I'm glad that you liked it! I loved her Under the Never Sky series! I just bought Mechanica last weekend (even though it wasn't out yet, but I didn't know that!) so I hope that I like it better than you did! Good job on your list of ARCs you got done! :)

    1. I'm really enjoying it so far, I'm so glad I can finally understand what everyone is talking about! I love Veronica Rossi, she is an amazing author.

      As for Mechanica..not for me but I hope you enjoy it!

  2. i still think you did a great job on ARC August, regardless that you didn't read any this week aha. i didn't participate this year, but maybe next time?

    throne of glass > everything! no regrets! i cannot believe queen of shadows is coming out in (basically) a day!! *wailing noises* i am not ready for this.

    i've heard so many great things about illuminae; excited to see your review :D xxx alexandra @ twirlingpages (

    1. Thanks! I'm happy that I got at least this many done. Hopefully, next year I'll do even better.

      I'm really loving Throne of Glass even though Maas is breaking my heart. I don't think there is any way to be emotionally prepared for this.

      Illuminae is absolutely amazing. I'll try to have that review up asap =)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. YAY You've started Throne of Glass. Queen of Shadows is officially here and I am officially relieved :) 5 ARCs is a great amount! Congratulations :D

    Here's my update if you're interested!

    1. Thank you! Throne of Glass is just tearing apart my feelings haha. I can barely talk about them because they have me so mixed up.

      Thank you!
