ARC August . . . . you game?

Oh hello friends *cricket noises* well whoever sees this, maybe there’s one individual left? Hi 👋 It’s your old pal Linz, and I’ve been MIA for I don’t know how long but

Besides my anti-social blogging behavior, I’ve decided August isn’t too late to start making some goals, right? Of course not! So in order to get my blogging/reading tail in gear I’m signing up for ARC August! I literally just found out about it’s existence a few days ago and am like “HOMG I have a million books from ALAMW (well the past three ALAMW’s shhh! don’t tell) that I’ve needed to read forever! Get to it Lindsey!” That’s where I’m at right now and it’s about time I start flying thru them and then post about them. The posting is where I tend to have trouble. LOL! Awesome way to book blog if you just read and then don’t post about it 😉 So, game plan–here are the titles I’ll be reading, not a lofty goal but fairly attainable. I’ll be excited if I get thru half of them:

– ARC Reading List –
*in no specific order*

This Savage Life – Victoria Schwab

The Serpent King – Jeff Zentner

P.S. I Like You – Kasie West

You Know Me Well – Nina LaCour & David Levithan

The Crown’s Game – Evelyn Skye

And I Darken – Kiersten White

🌟if I’m feeling super ambitious🌟

The Long Game – Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Wanderlost – Jen Malone
What Happens Now – Jennifer Castle

Signups are until July 31st here if you’re interested! Meanwhile I’m all

Hopefully by the end of August I might have more of my life together but I literally say this lie almost every month so…cheers! HAPPY READING! I BETTER SEE YOU ALL READING YOUR ARCs!!

Summertime Series

Hi All!!

FInishing this past weekend in the US as Memorial Day which is usually dubbed the unofficial, official start to summer, I’m going to try something brand-spankin’ new!

That’s right! It’ll be beach weather soon…well beach weather that lasts, vacation time, sunny days, and lazy afternoons; and what perfect way to spend this gorgeous time than to crack open that book for some fun, summer-y reads!

I’ve received and purchased a few copies of highly anticipated books and I decided to avoid the spoils and savor them on days I can enjoy them. Altogether I’ve chosen seven books (four paperback; three hardcover) and will spotlight them for the three big summer months: June, July, and August. Tentatively right now I’ll be completing two per month, depends on which month I decide to read the extra 🙂 Without further ado, I give you the picks for Summer 2014!

Alsooooooo I’m so so excited that on Saturday (5/31) I’ll be going to BOOKCON aka Power Reader day for BEA!!! I can’t swing it the whole time but I’m going to get a little taste–perhaps I can get more time next year but I’m very stoked to be able to go! Looking forward to networking, meeting up with some awesome bloggers–finally in person!–and score all the books I can!
