It’s Time for the CLEAN SWEEP ARC CHALLENGE!
Rules: Read ARCs between May 1 and May 31, 2014. You don’t have to post the full review on your blog, just link to your Goodreads review showing the book as read, with a one- or two-sentence review. (Helpful because some publishers don’t want advance reviews published too soon before the publication date.) Also, participate in some challenges, and the usual start-up post with goals. (You can read the entire list of rules by clicking on the button at the top.)
Read at least 8 ARCs during the month of May. Here are some of the titles I want to read, but of course I don’t know which new ARCs may come my way before the end of the challenge! I’m waiting to hear on three more ARCs I’ve already requested, and I’ll probably request a few more before May 30. (Some of these are forthcoming; a few are older ARCs I’m behind on.) ETA:
The ones in red are the ones I really want to finish by the end of May, though I’ll be lucky to get through 10 of them.
ETA: I’m adding the date as I finish each one. Many of the reviews won’t post until after the challenge is over.
