Final #ARCAugust Update

I’m pretty happy with how many ARCs I managed to finish in August.  Especially since I also did the Make Me Read It Readathon and none of those were ARCs.  I managed to finish 9 books and started a 10th.

Here is what I managed to read.



The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan    I gave this book 4  1/2 stars. I loved the blood magic and the Romani culture.

The Mask of Shadows by Linsy Miller   I gave this book 4 stars.  I loved the action and gender fluid character, but was confused a bit by all the people, times, and setting.  The second half of the book was easily 5 stars though.

The Third Kiss by Kat Colmer  I also gave this book 4 stars.  I loved the curse and demons.


We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards   I gave this one 4 stars for the strange story that was hard to put down.

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley   I will be reviewing this one closer to the release date, but I really loved it.

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel   This one got 5 stars from me.  It was a fast paced book full of cool myths (harbingers of death and beekeepers)



They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera  5 stars for an amazing story that broke me.

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows  I gave this book 4  1/2 stars.  It was hard to put down at times and I loved the dragons.

Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon  3  1/2 stars for a cute romance.


Those were the ARCs I managed to finish.  All but one have been reviewed here on my blog already if you want to find out more.  I will be doing an August Wrap Up post soon that includes everything else I read.

Did you participate in ARC August?  If so, comment below and let me know what you read.  Are you looking forward to reading any of these books?

  1. I added they both die at the end to my TBR bc I heard one of the MC was Puerto Rican. I’m Puerto Rican so that made me so happy and it sounds so cute. Congrats on finishing all those books :)))
