I had A Guilty Moment recently, as I looked back at my seasonal TBRs and realised quite a few of the books that I’ve never quite got round to reading were ARCs. Thankfully, there’s an annual summer event for miscreants like me: so here I am, reporting for ARC August.
February is here, bringing with it a month-long event hosted by Benjamin of Literature & Lofi. The premise is super simple: only read books written by women. And yes, I know, that’s not exactly unusual round here but I’m always ready to help balance years of male domination of my favourite genres. So what will I be reading this month?

Let’s get this 2022 show on the road, huh? Usually, Fun for Monday is all about…
Back in May, I took the Wyrd and Wonder challenge prompts and reworked them as a book bingo for anyone fancying a reading challenge. Of course I couldn’t resist doing the same for SciFiMonth! If you’re looking for a way to structure your TBR or just love filling boxes and entering a giveaway, look no further…
20 Books of Summer is an annual challenge hosted by Cathy of 746 Books. This is all about reading and reviewing your backlog over the summer – just set a target of 10, 15 or 20 books and declare a TBR (you can always change it later). In spite of 2021 being my year of no goals, I’m taking part as usual with an achievable goal of 15 (which is what i said last year, then spent the summer rereading instead, ahem).
My reading has been all over the place this year – I read nearly as many pages in February as I did in March and April put together – so committing to a reading challenge is arguably a daft idea. But I can never resist Cathy’s call for 20 Books of Summer, and this year is no different!
I sometimes hear fellow bloggers complain that they struggle to finish series, and I think ‘ah, what a shame’ and ‘huh, I don’t do that’. And then Caitlin of Realms of My Mind devised the Great Series Read Project to tackle all the series she wants to finish and I realised… I’ve been kidding myself.
