I don’t have a set list of books I want to read just yet and am just going to try to read as many review books as possible during… Read more »

Better Late Than Never ARC Challenge Kick Off!

Hello! Today is the official kick-off day of the Better Late Than Never Challenge. I am challenging myself to read ARCs that are older than 6 months old.

I also have a list of ARCs that I have already read but haven’t had a chance to review yet. I am making my own challenge within a challenge to get myself to write those reviews and get those off my plate. I usually… Read more »

This challenge is a way for us to get some of those books off our plate. This challenge is specifically for ARCs whose book… Read more »
