#ARCAugust Week 1 Update

August 1 - August 6

Book 1 - Fear the Drowning Deep
The Isle of Man mythology was something I haven't heard of, until I picked up this book. It's basically a darker version of The Little Mermaid (and it's genderswapped too!). So there was the insta-romance I had to deal with, but other than that, it was a fine read.

Book 2 - We Are Still Tornadoes 
A contemporary that takes place in college! And you usually have contemps that take place in high school, so this was much more relatable. The letter-writing format allowed me to connect with the characters clearly and their experiences over the course of their first-year resounded in me, too. 

Both ARCs were enjoyable and will be featured in ARC reviews coming in September and October. I took time after to read Golden Son, but the next book I'm reading is...


How is your #ARCAugust coming along?
