4th Annual ARC August: Week Two Update


The second week of the 4th Annual ARC August Challenge, hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat, is now over. This week I just wanted to get to one ARC because I like mixing my reading up during this challenge. Not sure how this upcoming week will look as I have crazy bookish plans that involve adding a new shelf to my library and moving others around, which is already taking up all of my free time. If I don’t manage to pick up an ARC for week three, I will be skipping the update. My full review for the following book will be posted closer to the release date.

ARC August Read #3:

Title: The Lovely Reckless

Author: Kami Garcia

Publication Date: October 4, 2016


I wish I could say Kami Garcia’s The Lovely Reckless is a winner, but I really struggled to get through it. The protagonist came across as very privileged and spoiled, which made it difficult to connect with her emotionally. I may have disliked the love story even more than the protagonist. Everything moved far too quickly and had me rolling my eyes more times than I can count. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

      1. probably yes. This will be the third and the last one this summer for me. Thanks to BookTubeAThon in which I read mostly graphic novels I’m now 13~ books ahead of my Goodreads challenge and that allows me to read a 1000+ page book and to listen to 40+ hour audio book (:

  1. Oh shoot! Sorry this was such a disappointment. At lease Jinx was there to listen and share you displeasure. =) I’m not too fond of spoiled privileged characters, either. Thanks for taking this one for the team. More thoughts after your full review…

    1. It really was and the more I think about it, the more I dislike the book. Not a good sign. Jinx is such a comfort, very attentive, especially when I have food. Yeah, I don’t think you’d like this one either, but if you do read it, we could totally complain about it together.
