I had set aside April to catch up on my TBR of ARC’s. I seem to have accumulated quite a few in the last few months, and it was time to catch up on them before the release dates in April and May.
What i didn’t know, was that April was being dubbed ‘ARC Attack’ month. I heard about it on Twitter to start with, and when i started to look in to it, released it had been set up as a read-a-thon for April which is simply to read as many ARC’s or early finished copies as possible within the month.
Considering this was my original plan for April, i figured i may as well join in and update my progress as i go along. I wanted to set aside April because i have a lot of time off work this month which will give me plenty of time to be reading, along with that, i have so many book events which i’m sure will spur me on to read even more.
I had a TBR set up for this month, i don’t usually make TBR’s for myself, but when i needed to be picky about what ARC’s i was going to get to, i knew i needed a rough guide of what i was going to read. So my TBR is:
- Birthday by Meredith Russo
- The Meaning Of Birds by Jaye Robin Brown
- Meat Market by Juno Dawson
- Furious Thing by Jenny Downham
- The Million Pieces Of Neena Gill by Emma Smith-Barton
I’m not under any illusion that all these will be read in April. It’s actually highly unlikely that it will happen. But i’ll be prioritising the releases coming up. Also i have our LGBTQ+ Book Club pick to read this month which is Girls Of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan, so i know that will take me a little bit of time to get through.
You can join in the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #ARCAttack. The idea of ARC Attack isn’t just great because you are reading what really needs to be read (and for some people, seriously lowering your TBR), but it gives you a great chance to find out what new releases are coming soon and maybe find some books that you didn’t know about! So definitely join in the conversation on Twitter.
What’s on your ARC Attack TBR?
