Hi everyone! I have been meaning to make this post for like, weeks now. I’m going to make it now and people are going to be like “But Amber, you’re like, a really slow reader, how are you supposed to read all those books by June 24th?”.
Well, dear reader, we can all have dreams.
One thing that I like to do is make sure I’ve read at least one book by an author before taking an ARC, unless, of course, they’re a debut author. For example:
Those were also three of my favorite books.
Those three titles I read in 2015 and last year at BEA (which I’ll be doing a very weird recap post of later this week, I know, I know, I know), I happily grabbed all three of the ARCs.
“So how’d you like the follow-ups, Amber?”
Ha, we’re not going to be discussing that. I did start Silvera and Niven’s sophomore novels. Progress?
Okay, back on topic, enough rambling. Probably.
~All The Books I Hope To Read~
So, ideally I would read all these books, however, I don’t read fast and reading on my Kindle is the way to go. So my reading schedule is essentially this:
When The Moon Was Ours, History Is All You Left Me, Aftercare Instructions, all of which I’ve read partway through. Followed by Afterward, This Adventure Ends, When We Collided, I Believe In a Thing Called Love, When Dimple Met Rishi, The Lies About Truth, 99 Days or Fireworks and then Pointe if I have time.
I know, I am ‘so’ ambitious.
How do you go about getting ARCs from conferences? Do you pick up non-debuts if you haven’t read an author’s book before? Do you pick up whatever sounds good or an author that’s getting a lot of talk? I want to know.
