Clean Sweep ARC Challenge May 2013


The challenge dates: May 1 to 31st. 
Yes! Another Reading Challenge to help me clean up my bookshelf.  So what is this new challenge all about?   
The goal: to read and review as many ARC's as we can. We will have fun challenges each Saturday hosted by some wonderful bloggers and a prize for two luck participants at the end of the challenge. So gather your ARCs and your brooms and lets have some fun! -From Kimba

I honestly thought I had 5 to 8 ARC sitting on my over crowded bookshelf ...until today.  I just went book by book and low and behold I have 18 ARC on my shelf.  What the ??  When did these get here!?
And check this out!  Some of them are out and have been for a year now.  LOL!  One of them has been made into a movie and is out on DVD already!  I hope that one still counts.
So don't laugh but here is my list of ARC's in no particular order.
 ARC A Different Sun by Elaine Neil Orr
ARC Here I Go Again by Jen Lancaster
ARC Oleander Girl by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
ARC Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi
ARC The Barbarian Nurseries by Hector Tobar
ARC The Calling by Armstrong
ARC Bewitching by Flinn
 ARC Indiscretion by Charles Dubow
ARC The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggach
ARC The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln by Stephen L Carter
ARC Three Strong Women by Marie NDiaye
ARC The Twelve Tribes Of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
ARC The Crown of Embers by Carson
ARC Nobody’s Secret by MacColl
ARC Unremembered by Jessica Brody
ARC Under Shifting Glass by Nicky Singer

ARC Fish Finelli by E.S. Farber
ARC The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat
I know right!  Who was I kidding thinking there were only 5 here?  
 Ok since I am reading a book club book of the month and I am working a ton right now I am going to try my best *fingers crossed* to read 4 books off of this list.  One a week!  Two YA and two non-YA.  I don't know.  I think I'll just grab and go.  
And you want to know the crazy part of this challenge?  When I am posting my wrap up post I will be in NY at BEA getting way more ARC than is humanly possible.  Or at least trying to!  I need to read at least half of this before BEA so I can make room for more ARC's.
I love how this challenge will also go toward my Off the Shelf Reading Challenge as well. 
Wheew!!  Sooooo....wish me luck! 


Are you planning on joining this challenge too?  What ARC are you going to read?
