  1. I literally started screaming when I got an ARC of Girls of Storm and Shadow. I had requested to be on the blogger list months ago. I had been added, but I didn’t think i would receive any unsolicited arcs, as a small bookstagrammer. People in my timeline are getting ARCs. I’m thinking, maybe I can request one? Just maybe I have a chance. I decide I’ll write the email tommorow after school. I go to school, I get home, turn on my computer. My mum comes in “Sasha, there was a package for you” she hands it to me. I am expecting a book, so I open it happily. It is not the book I expect. It’s an ARC of Girls of Storm and Shadow. there, in my hands. I scream. A few days later, and email in my inbox inviting me to the bookstagram tour.
    Flash forward to now, I posted and squealed about it on my date, and I’ve been procrastinating finishing it for weeks.

      1. I usually read sporadically but really want to find the time to sit down and finish this one in peace with my candle inspired by it πŸ™‚


  2. great post btw!! Very jealous. I requested an ARC but bc I’m in the UK, they don’t have the rights here. I’ve looked around and idk who’s publishing it here but I’ll probably preorder it soon!

  3. I hope the author reads and appreciates the post, because I’ve not Googled McLemore to see who this person is…..

    Okay, back from Googling. I remember this author because they were talking about the title Blanca & Roja on Twitter. I think they were saying they should maybe use the English title? Perhaps I’m thinking of the wrong author….

    I would LOVE an ARC of whatever Sarai Walker’s next book is. Stabbity-stab for it.

    I was mega appreciative when Mimi Pond, who wrote the first-ever Simpson’s episode, agreed to do a Meet the Writer interview with me after I read her graphic novel Over Easy. I was so honored!

  4. I have not, but I can understand your excitement. So far I have not gotten any of my favorite author’s ARCs, even though I buy multiple copies of all her new releases (gotta have it in Kindle and hardback, and sometimes in Spanish too), so they wouldn’t be out a sale by giving me one.


  5. Wahhh, I love this story! Especially since it’s about Anna-Marie’s new book *-* I’ve not experienced anything this wonderful, but I was Netgalley-approved for two books from a couple authors I similarly adore and that was insanely exciting, so I can only begin to imagine how exciting this would be, haha.


I'd love to hear from you. Share your thoughts here!
