Clean Sweep ARC Challenge!

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog!! Today I'll be talking about an ARC Challenge I made the decision to participate in today. I have a pretty big ARC pile that I've amassed over the past year or so, and I want to make a dent! This challenge seems perfect for doing just that. 

Here are the rules and other tidbits of info :
  • Link up here at the Caffinated Book Reviewer
  • ARCs must be read in the month of May
  • ARCs can be in any format!
  • Post a start up post
  • You don't have to review the book, but just have a link to goodreads showing the dates read and a two sentence review. 
  • To do this, friend Kimberly on goodreads here
  • Twitter party using #cleansweeparc on May 18th at 7:30 PM (EST)
  • Post your results!
I also want to give a shoutout to czai over at The Blacksheep Reader! I always seem to find and learn about readathons from them, and that is where I learned about this one! Thanks czai. :)  

Without further ado, here is my TBR for the Clean Sweep Arc Challenge!

1) Weregirl by C.D. Bell
I cannot remember the last time I have read a book about werewolves. In fact, I don't think I have ever read a book solely focused on werewolves since Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver series. This might not be the "best thing ever" but I am ready to have some fun and read about some werewolves.

2) Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl
Royce Rolls seems like a blast! The book follows Bentley Royce, one (fifth?) of her family's reality tv show, which is the equivalent of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Bentley is ready to live her life, but decides to save the reality show she despises in order to keep her family together. This is described as a "laugh out loud funny romp" and it better deliver!

3) The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
I think this is the ARC I am by far looking forward to the most! Everyone seems to love this book, including blogger friends and real life friends. I need to read this book ASAP, as I'm sure I will love it. Let's hope this sci fi doesn't disappoint!  

4) Hello, Sunshine by Leila Howland
Hello, Sunshine is about Becca after she is rejected from every college she applied to. Looking for a fresh start, she goes to LA in order to pursue an acting career. I'm not completely invested in reading this, but I'm a intrigued. Now that I've actually committed to a college, I don't think that the book will hit too close to home for me.
5) Two Summers by Aimee Friedman
With summer fast approaching (yay!) I am in the perfect mood for this book. From what I remember, this book follows a girl whose summer is told in two different perspectives. Basically there are two ways this girl's summer could have gone, and we follow both of them. One is in France and the other one is at her home.

So five books is actually pretty big for me when it comes to TBRs, because I rarely stick to them. I'm a massive mood reader, but I am determined to read these! I'm planning on reading five different books other than these in May; I hope I get to all of them!

Are you participating in the challenge? What ARCs do you still have on your TBR?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Good luck to everyone participating!

Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!


  1. I've been seeing Royce Rolls over at booktube a lot but it doesn't really sound like a book for me. I hope you enjoy it though. I'd also love to read your thoughts on The Diabolic. I'm still not sure about that one. Good luck, Genni!

    1. I can see why! I just recently watched a video about Royce Rolls and I figured why not add it to my TBR. Thanks! I hope I love The Diabolic and I'm not too disappointed. :)

      Good luck to you too!

  2. Good luck with the challenge! I liked weregirl. It wasn't the best thing ever but it was a solid read. Hope you like it!

    1. Thanks Greg! I'm totally find with a solid read. :) They always spring me back after a book hangover!

  3. I love the cover for Weregirl. I love shifter novels so I'm sure it would be right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it.

    1. I completely agree! I find it to be stunning. :) Thanks Kirstin! If you ever read it, I hope you enjoy it as well!
