Gideon the Ninth | Tamsyn Muir
post image

August TBR! I'm doing a monthlong readathon called #arcaugust to catch up on upcoming releases that I picked up at #bookexpo ; these are all coming out at the end of August or early September. Currently reading the tagged book and it's a really hilarious fantasy read so far!

Skyrimir I LOVE those bookends! 6mo

It got a little dark, a little weird outside here in Chicago, but without glasses to look into the sky, it seemed more like some clouds rolling in than a spectacular astro event. TBH, I think the cover of this book looks more like an eclipse than anything I saw today. Really looking forward to this one. #TotalEclipseOfTheArc #ARCAugust #eclipse @BethwithBooks

My local libraries ran out of eclipse glasses, but I did snag some terrific ARCS at this year's annual American Library Association conference. It's hard to choose the ONE I'm most exited about, so I chose these four that actually create a bit of #spinepoetry. Help @BethwithBooks spread the ARC ❤️ by sharing the ARC you're most excited about. #TotalEclipseOfTheArc #ARCAugust. Tag us both; I'd love to see what you all are fired up to read!#eclipse

PatriciaU My librarian friends and I have never had so many angry people in the library at once as the hordes after the elusive eclipse glasses. Numerous f bombs dropped, being accused of lying, being asked "can't you just slip me a pair in secret?" Teachers leaving in tears because we couldn't provide glasses for their whole class. It's been crazy! 2y
Suelizbeth @Lola MMD book club will be reading Young Jane Young as the October pick. I've heard good things about it and I'm looking forward to reading it, although not as an ARC. @BethwithBooks 2y
Lola @PatriciaU I just don't understand people getting angry at the library/librarians about this. And people saying that the libraries should have "planned better" and gotten more glasses. Bunch of ingrates. ? Seriously people, go home and make a pinhole camera. 2y

Lola @Suelizbeth I really liked A.J. Fikry (much to my surprise) so am really looking forward to this-I almost chose it as my "one". How do you like the MMD book club? I have thought about joining. 2y
Suelizbeth @Lola I like it very much. The community is warm, intelligent, welcoming and Anne Bogel is great at choosing books and leading the monthly discussions. It's one of the best online book communities that I know of. 2y
Lola @Suelizbeth Good to know! I love her What Should I Read Next podcast http://modernmrsdarcy.com/new-podcast-what-should-i-read-next/ 2y

I found this book much more enjoyable than book one. It's still not one of the best YA fantasy series out there, as it's not original enough, but it was a fun read. #ARCAugust

Yeah_I_Read I can't wait to read this one! 2y

All ARCs come with the caveat that things can change between the ARC and the final printing/publication. I always have a slight fear that something significant in the story will change and I'll miss something major, but it's not enough to stop me from reading them. There's a clear mistake on this page, which I'm sure has been found and fixed by now, but anyone else with an ARC catch it? #ARCAugust

seebiscan I'm looking forward to this one! Can't wait to hear your thoughts! 2y

Wow what a book! This had me gripped from the first page right until the end and what an ending! If you thought I Found You was dark this is even darker and creepier. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy psychological thrillers. #20BooksofSummer #ARCAugust

Andrew65 Love Lisa Jewell books. 2y
nickimags @Andrew65 Me too she's one of my favourite authors 😊 2y

Happy #BookLoversDay #20BooksofSummer #ARCAugust
The weather here in Jersey, Channel Islands has been wet cool and so dull. A perfect excuse to snuggle up with a cuppa and Lisa Jewell's latest book.

Just saw #arcaugust and really need to participate. I am soooo behind on my NetGalley reading. This is what I'm reading right now, written by a psychologist and Holocaust survivor. Out September 5.

Jennick2004 What exactly is NetGalley? I've seen it mentioned a lot but have no knowledge of it! 2y
Lissa00 @jennick2004 it is a website that publishers use to grant bloggers, librarians, reviewers, etc access to digital advanced copies of books. I have a very informal blog and have been using NetGalley for several years:) 2y
Jennick2004 Awesome thanks for the info :) 2y
