Teen Tuesday: Tenth Edition!

Hi. This will be quick.

This week I've read:

Finished Beautiful Americans by Lucy Silag
2/3 of Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Willow by Julia Hoban
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
1/3 Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas

So, yeah, EXCELLENT reading week for me. and 4/5 of those are ARC's which is just CRAZY. I've never been surrounded by so many ARC's in my life. I've been by so many ARC's that I've had a few questions:

How many ARC's do you usually get in the mail in a week, month, whatever? Also, how do you pronounce ARC? I've heard it pronounced like Arc/Ark and A.R.C/A-R-C. How do you pronounce it?Myself? I pronounce it A.R.C./A-R-C.

Okay, enough about that. This week I hope to get to:

Finish Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Finish Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin
Breathe My Name by R.A. Nelson
Pretty Face by Mary Hogan
Take Me There by Susane Colasanti

So, yeah. Arrivederci (That's Italian)



  1. Wow you read Willow? It looks so awesome.

    Alla prossima Kelsey.

  2. I pronounce it both ways. But usually I'm explaining it to people who don't know what it is, so I say Advanced Reader Copy :)

  3. I usually say the letters out, A-R-C, but I'm sure I've said it the other way at least once.

    Ahh, so jealous that you're getting to read Take Me There. It's definitely tops on my to-buy list!

  4. I usually either say it as a word (like ark) or I say the full title (or just advance copy). A-R-C just doesn't flow off the tongue, lol.

    How was Beautiful Americans? I so want to read it, but I can't get too ahead of myself in my reading pile, lol.

    As for many ARCs I get, usually a couple a week, so maybe like 10 in a month? But it also depends on the month. Jillian from Penguin is sending me a bunch of ARCs, so I'll be getting in one day what I usually get in a month, lol.

    Oh, and June was madness when I held that anniversary month contest. I had like over 100 ARCs (some of the same book) in my room to give away.

  5. I say A-R-C. It makes me giggle to hear people pronounce it as a word.


Good? Bad? Ugly? I don't care as long as you tell me!
