Gah, it's hard to explain how much I love Paramore's new album - it's so full of 80's pop and yet it remains true to Paramore's sound.
I've also been in love with Odette's first single "Watch Me Read You." It was one of my top tracks of 2017 and I'm still blown away by how beautiful it is.
Today, we're also starting State of the ARC - where I talk about how behind I am on my ARCs and make excuse for why I'm not through them yet. State of the ARC is run by Avalinah's Books. Read the official rules HERE.
I'll be honest - I haven't been great about keeping up with old ARCs, so this is my commitment to start catching up (I also have a challenge from The Herd Presents to finish 8 backlisted books this year, so I'm hoping I can combine these challenges and knock out some books). So here is where I was at in the beginning of the month.
This month, I read two books that weren't due yet to get ahead of the game so I can spend next month focusing on overdue books. Here are the two books linked to my reviews:
I also had to forego reading two books that I was no longer able to download. So since doing my initial count, I moved 4 books off my to-read shelf. I also was approved for one new book that isn't due for a few months. Today, my chart looks a bit more like this:
Hopefully next month I can start tackling those overdue books! Thanks to Avalinah's Books again for running this meme and helping motivate me to get working on my ARCs!
What have you been listening to lately? How many ARCs do you have to catch up on? And how do you motivate yourself to finish backlisted books?
