Clean Sweep ARC Challenge - May 2014


Last week I decided to participate in a summer long event which consisted of me challenging myself to read 40 books in 4 months. I am overly thrilled my this event and couldn't be happier about participating... and then I saw this month long challenge over at Kimba's Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I knew I had to participate in too. Here's my thinking process: I have a whole bunch of ARCs that I need to get to, it's only a month long, I have a week left of break, and I can add this on to my other challenge. I see that as an all around win in my book. 

What is the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge? It's a challenge to help motivate you to read and review as many ARCs/finished copies, provided by a publisher or author, as you can in the month of May. Each Saturday there will be two blogs hosting challenges and giveaways at their prospective blogs. There will also be one grand prize winner of a newly released book. This challenge is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews and Angela's Anxious Life. You can sign up here.

Since I plan on adding this onto the event I'm already participating in I'll have more ARCs reviewed and read for this challenge than I initially anticipated. I'll be updating this challenge separately every Monday until the last Monday in May. I'll have a wrap up post when it's all over as well. I want to try to read and review at least 7 books for this challenge.

Note: I read Torn Away yesterday for this challenge. My review will be up Wednesday.

  1. I haven't taken part in a challenge like this before, but it sounds like a good motivator. Good luck! And I'm looking forward to seeing what you thought of Torn Away. I read it myself not too long ago and was really impressed with it.
