The ARC Reading Challenge
My pile of ARCs/review copies is teetering dangerously, so this seems like an obvious challenge for me to join. Thanks to Teddy Rose for hosting this challenge and giving me extra incentive to get to my pile of ARCs - definitely a smart idea for a challenge! =)
Here are the (abbreviated) rules:
1. Make a list of all of the ARC's that you currently have and/or are on their way to you.
2. If you have:
1-3 ARC's then pick at least one to read and review for this challenge.
4-6 ARC's then pick at least two to read and review for this challenge.
7-9 ARC's then pick at least three to read and review for this challenge.
10 or more Arc's then pick at least 4 to read and review for this challenge.
Okay, first up we have the list of shame - all the ARCs/review copies that have piled up because I am a free bookaholic with big aspirations:
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
Songs for the Missing by Stewart O'Nan
The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
Homegirl by Judith Matloff
Franklin and Lucy by Joseph E. Persico
Far World Water Keep by J. Scott Savage
The Glimmer Palace by Beatrice Colin
The White Mary by Kira Salak
The Painter from Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein
Heavier Than Air by Nona Caspers
In the Country of Brooklyn by Peter Golenbock
Okay, so that's...11. That means I've got to pick four for the challenge. I definitely hope to fit way more in, but I'll give priority to these four:
The Wednesday Sisters
Franklin and Lucy
Far World Water Keep
