  1. I'm excited about starting this. Hopefully, it will help me make a dent in my review pile ;) Thanks for hosting & happy reading!

  2. This is going to be so much fun. Thanks for hosting!

  3. Thanks... I actually have a lot of graphic novels that I need to get read this month. I am always requesting those since they are short.

  4. Yeah... I hope everyone has a lot of fun.

  5. Wow, are we redecorating? I like. Thanks for co-hosting Angie!

  6. I am so excited! I'm determined to sweep out those ARC's! Thanks for hosting it!

  7. So exciting! Thanks for stopping by my blog Angie! Happy may! YAY!

  8. Well... a forced redecorate. My other template just wasn't working right anymore. I should have a new one up in June.

  9. Yeah for May. Though there is a lot going on in the blogging world in May. I am getting caught up on my posts now so I am not overcome during the month.

    I don't know if I'll take part officially...I'm so bad with these type of things...but I like the idea and in general, I'm trying to get caught up on review copies. Most of my review books nowadays are from awhile ago since I don't take on a lot. I need to get through some of those though.

  11. I really try to not take on a lot of ARCs myself. I have enough books to read that are already published. LOL! I still wanted to help host the challenge though. I am shocked to see there are already 141 entries today alone. That's crazy!

  12. This comes at a great time for me, because I could fill a pool with all my ARC's (and not the kiddie sized stuff either!). Great initiative, I'm promoting it on my blog as well.

    And what, I was so lost when I came here, you redecorated :o It's a very clean site now, and so different to how it was! But change is good :)

  13. I will be getting a new design come June. I had to find one between now and then. The other one was screwy but once it stopped showing the blog title and the post titles I had to make an emergency switch! ! LOL!

  14. I'm working on my first review book now - finger crossed I'll get through most my list this month. Thanks for hosting - I needed this challenge, even if I resisted LOL :)

  15. Ok, when that starts happening, it really is time for something new! I'm already looking forward to your new design!

  16. It is fun to have challenges to participate in to get you motivated. I love that there are things to do every weekend too (the challenges). Hope you join us for the Twitter chat!

  17. Wish I had stumbled upon this earlier in the month. I need to catch up on so many projects, ARC's, other project reads and blog post.


  18. OH man such a bummer! It can be hard to get the info out to everyone... I tried to get the info out there too.
