Two weeks into our ARC April reading challenge and we are as predicted, NOT STICKING TO OUR TBRs. We thought we would give an update because you need that kind of thing when you have unreliable reading habits.
Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai
- Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen
- This Is All Your Fault by Aminah Mae Safi
- The Mall by Megan McCafferty
- Lobizona by Romina Garber
So, I actually did binge Girl Gone Viral in three sittings (so you know it was good), but the other two ARCs I’ve started since then are really mood reading picks (plus publication date consideration). But, I’m currently half way through Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo, and it’s amazing how illustrative Acevedo’s words are in this novel told in verse. The other one I’m working on is A Taste of Sage by Yaffa S. Santos, which is a romance [gotta keep the palette balanced]. Unfortunately, I haven’t spent too much time reading ARCs this last week. I’ve been burning through audiobooks since I’ve been doing a lot of sewing.
- Something to Talk About by Meryl Wilsner
- More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn
The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler
- Chasing Lucky by Jean Bennett
- Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon
So I DNF’d the Tourist Attraction. It was not holding my attention and I realized that I literally did not care what was happening which is usually my threshold for when I decide to DNF. But, aside from that I have not stuck to my TBR at ALL. No one is shocked. I did pick two up other ARCs. I read Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From by Jennifer De Leon & I started You Had Me At Hola by Alexia Daria. Both of these ARCs have Latinx main characters and I recommend both! I hopefully will have a full review for at least one of them. Also, CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE COVER FOR YOU HAD ME AT HOLA? A WORK OF ART.
How are you doing with your April reading goals?
Thanks for reading!
xoxo, Bree & Tree
