Summer ARC Haul!

Recently, I've been frantically emailing publishers on the hunt for some summer-reads. I was lucky enough to receive eight books this week ranging from dystopia to fantasy, children's to contemporary. The reason for this is mainly the fact that summer is when I get most of my reading done and power through book after book.

I saw a tweet on Twitter a few weeks ago about a brand-new publisher looking for a team of reviews. Yesterday, I finally became a part of that team - known as Team Fox - along with Jack(The Book Stop). I had so many books to choose from but, in the end, I limited myself to three - all very different - to read! I'm so excited to be a part of this brand-new team of Teen Reviewers and of course, getting another package in the post is something I love. The books I received were:

Look what I found! Two bloggers(Zoe and Amber) with a mention in
Diary of a Mall Girl! Congratulations, girls!
The Soterion Mission(Uncorrected Proof) by Stewart Ross
Soul Shadows by Alex Woolf
The Diary of a Mall Girl by Luisa Plaja
I also had three books from Nosy Crow:
Faerie Tribes: The Crystal Mirror by Paula Harrison
Baby Aliens Got My Teacher(Uncorrected Children's Proof) by Pamela Butchart
The final book in the Olivia Stage School series, which is going to be sent to the Blogoversary Winner who won the first five books in the series.

The book I was dancing-around-the-room excited to receive though was Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. I already had a copy from NetGalley of this on my Kindle and wasn't expecting to get a copy in the post. So, when I realised there was a package waiting for me from Bloomsbury, I was completely over-joyed. It is now happily sitting with 'Throne of Glass' as I'm completely in awe of how gorgeous the cover is.

I've also been spending a lot of time chatting to author Sharon Sant on Twitter about our mutual love of all things Peeta Mellark and decided to ask about one of her novels, 'Sky Song'. She then offered a review copy to me and I jumped at the chance. I can't wait to read this as it just sounds beautiful and I've heard nothing but praise.

I also have 'The Bone Season' by Samantha Shannon and 'Shipwrecked' by Siobhan Curham(All ready for the read-a-long on the 15th August - 30th on my Goodreads group 'Fandom Freak Out'). You can sign up to read with me and other bloggers here .

What ARC's have you received for the summer?
On a final note, I'd like to thank Nosy Crow, Curious Fox and Bloomsbury along with Siobhan Curham for the books I've received.


  1. *high five* Yay! We're both part of Team Fox! I got the same books but then I got a different book instead of Diary of a Mall Girl! Great haul! I have to get round to doing one as well! :D

  2. Ahh, I just wrote a long comment and then accidentally deleted it *sighs* -.-

    Team Fox sounds awesome - how do I join?! Thanks for the mention, I'm still on cloud nine with being in a dedication with Amber :D :D You'll love DOAMG and Soul Shadows. I received Crown of Midnight too - I can't wait to read it. Happy reading! <3

  3. Ahhhh! Crown of Midnight! I really want to read that!

    Diary of a Mall Girl sounds perfect for summer! :')

    Hope you enjoy all!
