ARC August hosted by Octavia of Read, Sleep, Repeat is a challenge to catch up on reading those ARCs and author review copies. She’s also giving away a $20 gift card to a book dealer of the winner’s choice at the end of the month.
Here are the author review copies that I need to catch up on during this event. It will be a challenge to get these plus the ones done for the Beat the Heat Readathon, but I’m on a mission to get back to reading! Reading is my time to reset and recharge and as a busy mom, I need it, I foresee a lot of late night reading in my next month!

August 19th-25th is also the time for the Bout of Books 8.0 Readathon. I enjoyed the last Bout of Books and you know I’m a sucker for readathons, they are the motivation I need to get back to reading. Here’s more info about the Bout of Books:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team.
After all these reading challenges and readathons, I’m going to need a Sit Down and Write Write-a-thon being hosted by Michelle of Stories Inside which will hopefully be at the end of August.
Are you participating in either of these events? Do you enjoy reading challenges and readathons? Happy reading!
