Book Freak Revelations is Joining #ARCAugust!

BFR (2)In efforts to try and catch up with all my review copies, I am joining ARC August! *cheers* For those who don’t know it yet, ARC August is a bookish challenge hosted by the lovely ladies of Read.Sleep.Repeat that aims to allow readers / bloggers to try and dominate their review copies (ARCs) within the month of August. And since I’m a little behind on my own pile, I knew I can’t let my chance of joining pass me by!

Since it’s my first time joining ARC August, I’ll be a little ambitious and enthusiastic, and share with everyone that I’ll be hoping to finish most, if not all of the following:


  • Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust
  • Warcross by Marie Lu
  • Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock
  • Words In Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
  • Forest of A Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
  • Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke
  • Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me by Broody McHottiepants and Carrie Dirisio

And since I’m a well-known mood reader, and I don’t completely trust myself to be able to push through with reading the ARCs I enlisted above, there is a high chance that I’ll also read one (or two) review copies from the following:

  • The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
  • Everything All At Once by Katrina Leno
  • The Authentics by Abdi Nazemian
  • This Is How It Happened by Paula Stokes
  • If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak
  • Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
  • Romancing The Throne by Nadine Jolie Courtney
  • Three Sides of A Heart Edited by Natalie C. Parker
  • Meant To Be by Julie Halpern
  • My New Crush Gave To Me by Shani Petroff
  • Perfect Ten by L. Philips
  • Finding You by Lydia Albano

  1. I love your book line up for this challenge, JM. I’m so jealous with Warcross!! 😆 I finished reading Words In Deep Blue last week and it was a great read for me & I’m excited for you to read it too.

    I’m also joining this challenge with a very ambitious TBR coz my unread ARC pile is crazier than crazy. 🙈 Enjoy #ARCAugust! ☺️

    1. Hi, Karla! Thanks for stopping by! It’s funny, I actually moved on to reading Warcross now, and I am loving it! Only 75 pages in, but Marie Lu’s one of my faves, so it didn’t come as a surprise for this one to be as good as her other books. And yaaay for finishing Words in Deep Blue! How was it for you? I’m planning on reading that one next. And by the way, good luck with your ARC pile. The stars know how much we all need it. 😆

      1. I’m not even surprised that you’re loving Warcross. I heard nothing but great things about it and I’m sooooo excited to get my hands on it once released. ☺️

        Words In Deep Blue was great! It’s my first Cath Crowley book & would definitely be not the last. You’ll surely enjoy all the bookish references in the book too. 😉


  2. That looks like an awesome TBR!! I read Just Friends and really enjoyed it! And I can’t wait for Warcross to come out so I can read that too! It sounds so amazing!!

    1. Hi, Em! Thanks for stopping by! I actually finished reading Just Friends last night, and I didn’t like it that much, unfortunately. I’m glad you did, though. It’s probably the type of book that’s usually a “hit or miss” with readers. But as for Warcross, I just started it this morning and I am loving it! 🙂

  3. Awesome stack you have there! I’m beginning to see the benefits of having a back-up stack as a mood reader myself *Le sigh* lol. I joined for the very 1st time & have so far read 1 galley & 50 pgs into my 2nd so not too bad. I’ll also be aiming to squeeze in Warcross, Girls Made of Snow and Glass & Brooding YA Hero *cheers* we can do this! 🙂

    1. I just know that there’s a huge possibility that I won’t be able to read all that’s included in my photographed TBR, so it definitely pays to be ready with back-up titles. And yay for Warcross, Girls Made of Snow and Glass, and Brooding YA Hero! Good luck with the challenge, and thanks for stopping by! 🙂


  4. Oh these sound like lovely choices! I am also joining. I wouldn’t say I’m excited about The Hollow Girl because the themes are very dark, but ‘m anticipating it and ready to read it. I am very excited about #NotYourPrincess.

    Which are you most excited about?

    1. Those titles both sound intriguing! Thanks for sharing, love! Out of my ARC stack, I’m most excited for Warcross (which I’m actually reading right now) because Marie Lu’s one of my go-to authors for fantasy / sci-fi books! Good luck with the challenge, and thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    1. Eeeep! Bea, I’m actually reading Warcross now, and I am loving it! Only 75 pages in, but Marie Lu’s one of my faves, so it didn’t come as a surprise for this one to be as good as her other books. Thanks for stopping by, and I can’t wait to see you again! 🙂

  5. This is an amazing line-up! Also, I love your bio! I went to culinary school before I, also, realized that books were where my heart truly was. Can’t wait to see your reviews on these books!
