Review Copy Clean Up for August


 
Review Copy-Clean Up is hosted by 
Celene @Nyx Book Reviews and Vicky @Books, Biscuits and Tea

I participated in the first Review Copy Clean Up and had a blast, 
so I have decided to join the fun again.
 I encourage you to sign up and join in the fun. (click image to link up)

My Goals :
Read and Review:
  • Innocent Darkness by Suzanne LaZear
  • Skylark by Meagan Spooner
  • The Uninvited by Heather Graham
  • City of Demons by Kevin Harkness
  • Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
  • In a Fix by Linda Grimes
  • Every Day by David Levirthan
  • Dream of Me by Jennifer Froelich
  • Blackwood by Gwenda Bond
  • The Angry Woman Suite by Lee Fullbright
  • Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
  • The City's Son by Tom Pollock
  • Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout 
  • Undead by Kirsty McKay
  • Too Many Cooks by Shirley Ann Wilder
  • Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay


It looks like a lot, but with a couple of read-a-thons I am confident I can meet and surpass this goal. Wish me luck and stop back to check my progress. I will update this post once a week with my progress and provide a link on my Sunday Post each week. 

Accomplished (finished reading and review to post this month):

  • Innocent Darkness by Suzanne LaZear
  • Skylark by Meagan Spooner
  • Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
  • In a Fix by Linda Grimes
  • Dream of Me by Jennifer Froelich
  • Blackwood by Gwenda Bond
  • Seawitch by Kat Richardson
  • The Uninvited by Heather Graham
  • City of Demons by Kevin Harkness
  • Every Day by David Levirthan
  • Too Many Cooks by Shirley Ann Wilder
  • Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
  • Undead by Kirsty McKay (review to post Sept. 1)
  • The Angry Woman Suite by Lee Fullbright
  • The City's Son by Tom Pollock (review to post Sept 8)
15  ARC/review books!

I also read the following personal books this month for review on my blog:
  • The Reckoning by Alma Katsu (review to post Sept. 6th)
  • Isolation by Dan Wells (review to post Sept. 3rd)
  • San Diego: 2014 by Mira Grant (review to post Sept. 7th)
  • Destined for An Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost (review to post Sept. 10th)
  • The Truth About Lord Stoneville by Sabrina Jeffries (review to post Sept. 13th)
  • Last to Die: A Rizolli & Isles Novel by Tess Gerritsen (review to post Sept 14th)

I had a really good time, although I failed to attend the twitter parties and I am sorry I missed them. I did however read all but one review book on my list and I am delighted by my accomplishments. I feel great about having read 21 books and writing all of the reviews up. 

Thanks to our hosts Celene and Vicky!!!!

Thanks Leanne I finished Innocent Darkness and my review will post next week...all I will say is that it wasn't steampunk and the cover is wrong, wrong, wrong for this book but awesome on its own.
