August TBR (Disneyathon and ARC August!)

August TBR

I may have bitten off more than I can chew.

This month, I want to participate in two challenges:

  1. ARC August, where you try and trim down your TBR and read as many ARCs as you can (more info here)
  2. The Disney-readathon, where you pick a team and try to complete challenges to earn points (more info here)

I know that I won’t be able to reach all my goals, but I’m going to spend the next month trying.
