What do we do with ARCS?

What do we do with ARCS?

Recently I had a major book clearout to try and find space in my bedroom, literally books were taking up every surface. On a good day am okay with that but on a bad day? well it was getting quite annoying not being able to put my make-up or perfume anywhere as literally every shelf, drawer, and even my wardrobe was filled with books! NOT CLOTHES or anything else! I had all my clothes folded (not neatly) out on the banister at the top my stairs.. I also had a feeling if they fell one more time because there was so much my mum was going to get a black bin bag and throw everything away which is why I decided to have a book clearout..

A few things I want to point out before I carry on with this..
  • Any books I have received from authors/publisher will NOT be added to the list!
  • Any ARCS I have are defo defo defo not added to the pile!
Snoop
(See even Snoop likes me for pointing that out!)
 
I contacted my local library and they said they weren't accepting any new books and I know alot of people will say to me bring them to your local charity shop.. but  the problem with that is my mum and I counted it all up and I've spent well over £300 in the last couple of years on books I've never read, will never read or couldn't get into which is why I had an idea to do a car boot sale.. It's a win win situation someone gets a brand spanking new book cheap and I get money for more books! See what I done there? Awesomness! ;)

But there remains to be one little problem... ARCS.. I have a alot ARCS, I will never sell ARCS, I will never give them away for all the money in the world because it's like a sacred thing for authors and bloggers.. I mean do ya how special you are if you receive an ARC way ahead of the book publication date? Pretty darn special in my head! :)

Wow Cool

So what do I do with them? I CANNOT send them back to the authors or publishers because quite frankly I ain't a millionaire to send that many books back and I can't do giveaways with them because that would cost alot of money to! So what do I do with them???

What do YOU do with ARCS when you're finished with them? Do you give them to other bloggers? Do  you swap them LET ME KNOW! Leave a comment below... pretty please??

About the book:
 
 For rock star and notorious bad boy, Krit Corbin, addiction is part of his nature - and women have always been his favourite obsession. But that's the life of a lead singer in a band. He can have any woman he wants - anywhere, anytime. Well, except for one…

Blythe Denton is used to being alone. The minister's family who raised her have never accepted her as their own, and made sure she understood just how unworthy she was of love. So when Blythe finally gets the chance to leave, she takes it and moves into an apartment building with a loud upstairs neighbour who keeps throwing parties all night long.

During one such party Krit opens the door to find his new neighbour standing there. Blythe wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay. Blythe is nothing like the women who usually parade in and out of his apartment, but Krit can't resist her.

Determined to win Blythe over, Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet.
 
Review:

Bad for You is not my favourite book by the author, although I cried, I laughed and I smiled so Abbi Glines definitely did something right! I was annoyed with the writing as at times it seemed really simply written like it was aimed at a younger reader. I was left feeling tired even though I do love the characters and halfway through the book I did a little cheer because it was like yay Abbi's back! The writing definitely got back to Abbi's normal style and I was addicted till the end!

Krit and Blythe will remain a fab Abbi Glines couple. All in all a thoroughly enjoyed book once I got into it. My highlight through the whole thing was hearing about Marcus and Low and their little boy!

About the book:

Sawyer Vincent is still heartbroken over his breakup with Ashton Gray - made worse because he lost her to his brother - but Lana McDaniel thinks she might just have a cure. Lana's lived in her cousin Ashton's shadow all her life, but now she's taking the lead and is determined to make Sawyer her man. But can she be sure that Sawyer's not just using her to get back at Ashton? And what if Sawyer sees through her new sexy version of herself and discovers the shy, geeky girl she used to be?#

Book Review:

Another hot, addictive, toe-curling, gasping romance book from the amazing Abbi Glines!

Reading Beau and Ashtons story I thought nothing could get better but I should have had more faith in the auhors writing as The Vincent Brothers was just as good if not better... okay just as good we'll stick with.. no ones hotter than Beau...

I couldn't get enough of Sawyer and Lana's story and literally couldn't put the book down! It was a feeling of simply reading page to page! If you haven't read these books or any by this author I suggest you check her writing out as it's addictive!

Sawyer and Lana finally get their happy ending after everything they've been through and I'm so happy for them! I couldn't believe the author added a few extra chapters of 4 and 5 years later. I love when that happens in books and you get to catch up with the characters.

Abbi Glines makes you cry, laugh and smile all at the same time while reading her books but most of all she makes you thoroughly enjoy the story your reading and there really isn't anything better than that. These characters will remain with me forever. They touched my heart especially Lana! I <3 them!

About the book:
  It started with a spark...

Everything changed when I met Dominic. My heart had just been broken, split into jagged fragments that can jigsaw together to make me look enough like a normal, happy person.

Dominic has shown me a kind of abandonment I've never known before. He takes me down a path of pure pleasure, but of pain, too - his love offers me both lightness and dark. And where he leads me, I have no choice but to follow.

Book Review:

First she followed him.. then she sat at the window, ate ice-cream and watched him and then that's basically how the book continues. I'm not going to lie at the start of the book there were times when I thought "what the hell am I reading?" I couldn't help though carrying on reading.

It's a good book and eventually I know I will read the rest in the trilogy although I don't know when that will be they are in my TBR list.

Rating: ★★★★
My Copy: I receuved a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
 
About the book:

You can’t get into St Jude’s Academy unless you’re gifted, talented and supremely rich. New girl Alyssa is on a scholarship and feels like an outsider - she's not even that smart, apart from her photographic memory (and that's cheating, right?). Then one day her room-mate Lily is found floating face down in the lake. It looks like suicide, but, torn apart with guilt and grief, Alyssa is convinced that things aren't as they seem. Soon a jolted memory puts her on the trail of a sinister secret that might hold the clues to Lily's suspicious death. But Alyssa is in too deep, and she's being watched . . .

Book Review:

Love love love this book! Intriging, mysterious and thrilling! This is the perfect read for any reader wanting to sink their teeth into a good book! With every twist ans turn you are gripped until the very last page and with the very shocking events that occur Lucy Carver will keep you up all night long reading!

The press release stated it was first in a new YA series so I am super excited to read the next book! (Wonder when it's out?)

Alyssa is one character that kicks ass and I absolutely love her and Jack together... but I can't help but love Tom and Jayden to!

Jayden just sounds dreamy! (so does Jack!) but he has to get rid of the staffie first before he becomes my book boyfriend! It's a deal breaker! If not I choose Jack!

I'm quite sad Alyssa will be on her own now with no Paige or Lily... even though she does have Jack it's not the same! Ya need some girl friends!

This is possibly the first book in a series to have gripped me this much since Jana Olivers The Demon Trappers and that is a major thing to say! :)

Read this book now... although perhaps leave the light on.. I know I did!

About the book:
 
Sinclair Jeffries thought she knew what she was getting into when her zany, gay friend, Jesse Eddington, talked her into portraying his girlfriend during his parent's anniversary party on Huntington Beach. That is, until she met Reed, Jesse's sexy as hell older brother, and ends up getting much more than what she'd bargained for.

Reed Eddington assumed his future was settled until he met Sinclair, his brother's so-called "girlfriend", but the raw, sexual tension between them is hard to ignore. As he watches their ruse from the sidelines, he finds himself wanting to uncover more than just their amusing little facade.

Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 18+

Book Review:

To start at the beginning this book was good and the need to know how it ended kept me reading till the end. That said though I believe the description of this book on Amazon.co.uk should be edited and should include more information about the involving nature of this book as I know if I had have known what it included I would NOT have downloaded it.. free or not!

I do believe however if the psycho stalker (who randomly came out of nowhere) bit hadn't of been in it the story itself would have been enjoyable... even though it is a bit of a mind fuck to be honest!

If you're like me in any sence and don't like books that don't have a final set ending then this book isn't for you. The author is good though no doubt about it because the physcho stalker is still on the loose and didn't die to Sinclair and Reed aren't safe! So the authors has definitely made me want to continue reading to see what will happen and hope they all end up happy but... I don't think it's in my heart to continue and I think it honestly would mess with my head to much and scare me.. :-/

About the book:

Meg's life has taken a turn for the perfect. She is the envy of millions with her drop dead gorgeous husband, their two beautiful sons and her new mansion in Henley. Her celebrity PA days are over. But desperate to keep up with her rock star husband, Johnny Jefferson, she uproots her perfect family and moves back to LA.
 
Meg has to learn to live with her new celebrity status and the insecurities of her old life, which keep reappearing. Under the paparazzi flash of an A-List party, complete with red carpet, champagne and canap├ęs, Johnny's rock star past catches up with him and Meg's worst nightmare becomes a reality…

Book Review:

It was absolutely an amazing feeling being back in Meg and Johnnys world, especially now since they have little Barney and Phoenix! It was so good reading the end bit from Jessie's point of view and she liked to *live dangerously* sounds like someone else I've read about before... ;) I can't wait for the story to unravel and to see what happens next!

I'm hoping that when Jessie arrived and Johnnys was late he wasn't out for a drink... and really hoping he doesn't turn to booze, drugs or women but I think he will... I really hope now! *bites nails* Oh please Johnny NO!

My only problem with this book was it was far to short.. :(

About the book:

Her brother's best friend. A list. A love story.

After ending a horrible, scarring relationship, Vivian embraces her freedom by making a sexual bucket list. When her brother's best friend, Liam, finds it, sparks fly and hearts open.

Can Vivian heal one steamy encounter at a time?
Book Review:
I am so glad I came across this book! Once I read what it was about I knew I just had to read it! I love Vivian and Liam although the whole way through the book all I could hear in my head was Richard Gere shouting Vivian from Pretty Woman.
I think we should all take a leaf out of Vivians books and write a sexual bucket list! ;)
This authors writing can easily become addictive and I can't wait for book 2, the authors writing is hot, sexy and absolutely amazing! We've all been there with the crush on your brothers best friend but... who actually ever gets them? Well... Vivian gives hope for all!

My Copy: I borrowed a copy of this novel from +Megan McDade 



About the book:
 
They say be a good girl, get good grades, be popular. They know nothing about me. I can’t remember the night that changed my life. The night I went from popular to loner freak. And my family are determined to keep it that way. They said therapy was supposed to help. They didn’t expect Noah. Noah is the dangerous boy my parents warned me about. But the only one who’ll listen. The only one who’ll help me find the truth. I know every kiss, every promise, every touch is forbidden. But what if finding your destiny means breaking all the rules? A brave and powerful novel about loss, change and growing up, but most of all love.

Book Review:

Pushing the Limits has got to be one of my favourite books of 2013! It was absolutely incredible!

Noah & Echo's stories are so emotional and interesting which will keep you wanting to read more and more. Their own struggles, hopes and dreams will make anything want a happy ending for them. The pull you feel between these two characters is amazing. I loved how it flitted from both of them to give you every angle, thought and emotion.

The whole concept of this book totally amazed me, it is something that will stay with you months after reading.

Echo's strength in the end when she walks into the canteen with her scars showing is inspiring. I was crying and laughing from the very first page. The one moment that broke my heart was when Noah broke down and said he wanted his parents back, it tore my heart to shreds.

This authors writing is incredible, I will definitely be picking more up by her in the future.
