I am doing yet another readathon. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but this is going to be my third readathon of the year! I’ve been really working on reading all my books that I already own and get my tbr right down and readathons really help me.
So here is my third readathon of the year and probably not the last. The A Very Arcish readathon is for mainly us serial net galley clickers, Aimal from Bookshelves and Paperbacks created this awesome month long April readathon for ARC’s that we’ve been meaning to read and review but haven’t got around to.
The readalong is from the 1st of April till the 30th 🙂
This list may be a bit ambitious but hey lets see if I can’t get all these read and reviewed asap. All photos go to the goodreads page.
Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor
Reggie Mason is all too familiar with “the Three Stages of Depression.” She believes she’s unlocked the secret to keeping herself safe: Nobody can hurt you if you never let them in.
Reggie encounters an unexpected challenge to her misanthropy: a Twizzler-chomping, indie film-making narcissist named Snake. Snake’s presence, while reassuring, is not exactly stable—especially since his ex-girlfriend is seven months pregnant. As Reggie falls for Snake, she must decide whether it’s time to rewrite the rules that have defined her.

It Started With Goodbye by Christina June
Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she’s stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF’s gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client). When Tatum discovers she’s not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela-slash-fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

The Inconceivable Life of Quinn by Marianna Baer
Quinn Cutler is sixteen and the daughter of a high-profile Brooklyn politician. She’s also pregnant, a crisis made infinitely more shocking by the fact that she has no memory of ever having sex. Before Quinn can solve this deeply troubling mystery, her story becomes public. Rumors spread, jeopardizing her reputation, her relationship with a boyfriend she adores, and her father’s campaign for Congress. Religious fanatics gather at the Cutlers’ home, believing Quinn is a virgin, pregnant with the next messiah. Quinn’s desperate search for answers uncovers lies and family secrets—strange, possibly supernatural ones. Might she, in fact, be a virgin?

The Sixth Event by Kristen Morie-Osisek
Eighteen-year-old Raquel isn’t eighteen anymore…
During Raquel’s first semester of college, she witnesses the end of the world, only to wake up in her old room at her parents’ house two years in the past. Even worse, it seems she’s the only one who remembers—until Chris Lyley, a boy Raquel always thought was a loser, tells her he remembers the catastrophe.
Before long, they both discover new abilities. They’re able to understand any language and teleport through time and space. If Raquel and Chris can figure out what caused the end of their world, maybe they can stop it.
Now to my physical copies:
The only reason why I haven’t read this yet is because I want to re-read Truthwitch first so I’m fresh in the story.
On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery,” a magical skill that sets them apart from others.
In this sequel to New York Times bestselling Truthwitch, a shadow man haunts the Nubrevnan streets, leaving corpses in his wake-and then raising those corpses from the dead. Windwitch continues the tale of Merik-cunning privateer, prince, and windwitch.
Release: January 12th

The Promise of The Child
In the far future man has spread out into the galaxy. And diversified. Some have evolved physically into strange new forms, some have become immortal. Some hark back to the old ways. We have built a glorious new future. One that stretches from the sleepy Old World, to new terraformed planets and Dyson spheres built around artificial suns. For as long as we can remember (and some have lived 12,000 years) we have delighted in a rich new existence. Yes there have been wars but we are content in our splendour. Art is revered, life is easy, death forgotten for many. But now there are rumours of a bid to oust the Emperor and a worrying story that our history is not as we remember it – not only man left Earth…
Some of these books were sent to me after publication date so I’m not too much or a monster for being late with reviews 😄 I went crazy on Netgalley last month because I finished my whole shelf I’ve read a lot of the requests already though so I’m happy I only have 4 to read right now.
8 books seems pretty reasonable for me to finish in a month and still be able to read new purchases.
Do you have any review copies to read? If you’re joining in for the readathon or even just reading any of the same books as I am I would love to know and talk about it!
