Top Five Places to Get Arcs: That AREN’T Netgalley or Edelweiss

Tired of scrounging the web for places that actually list interesting looking arcs that aren’t of just one genre that you don’t read? Don’t want to browse through Netgalley for the hundredth time searching for something to read? Then you’ve definitely come to the right post! Now a lot of these books aren’t as good as the bestsellers that would typically be on Netgalley or Edelweiss. So keep that in mind as you browse through these places.

Top 5 Places to Get ARCs:

*simply click the name of the place, and it should take you right to their website*

1. Book Sirens= a great place to request books, and they also have detailed graphics and charts of what kind of reader and how much of a reader you are. They also give you a helpful reading charts/status page on your profile that I find very cool.
2.Hidden Gems=an insane amount of romance novels are on here, but there’s also other genres that are available as well on occasion. This is a more ‘first come first served’ kind of thing tbh, you put in your request, but you don’t always get selected for the book you get, though I’ve had insanely good luck with most of my requests, though they send arcs through email as well.
3.Booksprout=yet another heavily romance genre arc place, but it also contains a good bit of fantasy, science fiction, and ya as well. I rarely frequent this place, but I definitely still check in at least twice a month to see what might be available from favorite authors..
4.Booksends=I literally just found this place, so I’m still testing it out. But it seems as though this is another one that you sign up by email, they send you links to arcs, and you select which ones you want. They provide mobi files for kindle, it appears, which is what I generally use anyway.
5.BookPerks=this isn’t an arc place, but it does send you some rather nice bestsellers and new releases that are generally discounted towards less than five dollars. Therefore, sorry I’m cheating with this one, but I felt it worth mentioning for those who are looking to save some cash.

If y’all could spread this list around, help share these sites so that others might be able to find it, that would be awesome. I get that there’s probably been a lot of these helpful recommendation lists for finding arcs, but almost every last one of them has recommended Netgalley and/or Edelweiss as the main place. This should be far more helpful than mentioning the same two old places that most people may already know about.

As such, I do hope y’all found this to be a helpful list. Let me know what you thought of it in the comments! And if any of the links don’t work, please don’t hesitate in letting me know! I’m slowly getting used to linking, lol.

Until next time,

Top #5: ARCs On My TBR Shelf

Since everyone is doing their Top # Whatever Tuesday, I figured that I would jump on the bandwagon with a bit something different. My Netgalley has about 10/15 books to read, and my Edelweiss has a few as well, but I’m just picking from my Netgalley account.


These are four of the ones that I’m most excited four, though I am disappointed that the Ruin of Kings is a sampler only. I hope to get the whole book at some point, and not just the first few chapters!

Drumroll for the #1 Anticipated ARC on my Netgalley please!:

How to Fracture a Fairy Tale

I was so excited to receive this one! I might have squealed when I got accepted as a reviewer for one of my top most favorite authors, and the introduction is by another favorite author! I’m hoping to start this one soon!

So what are your top five ARCs? Let me know in the comments, because I’m really intrigued to see what other people manage to pick up.

Until next time,

Book Spotlight: The King’s Daughter Trilogy


Welcome to another Book Spotlight! This one comes with art from a trilogy that I was provided by the author! I plan on reading these very soon, once I thin down some of my other arcs, as I’ve gotten quite a few with release dates that I desperately need to read! Alas, schedules can be quite challenging, as I’m beginning to find out!

This is not the first trilogy done by the author. She’s also written the Golden City trilogy, which I adored, and the Overseer series which is also waiting to be read. She’s written numerous short stories, as well as regular novels. Who is ‘she’ you might ask? Well, she is Jeanette Kathleen Cheney, and she is a talented writer as well as one of my favorite fantasy authors!

For those who have never read this author, I highly recommend it. Not only does she write strong relatable characters, but her fantasy worlds are definitely unique and entertaining!

You can find her series here:

Goodreads: The King’s Daughter Trilogy

Facebook: Jeanette Kathleen Cheney

Amazon: The Amiestrin Gambit

{Hint: it’s only 4.99 currently on Amazon for book one! Also, if the links don’t work, please let me know, as I’m rather new to linking things. Thank you!}

This is on my top ten list to get to in the near future and I greatly look forward to it! I hope to have perked your interest as well!

That’s all for now, however, and I’m off to go read some of those ARCs that I just mentioned!

Until next time,

Books I’m “Planning” On Reading

So I’ve been gone awhile, and I’m attempting to play catch up with reading because I’ve only read a small handful of books this past month. Pitiful compared to the start of the year, really, but to be fair I’ve been busy working on writing my book than I have reading, and I’m almost done writing which means that next month will be filled with books, A Wrinkle in Time movie, and more books! I’ve worked out what books I really want to get to this upcoming month, and I have all of them I just need to start reading them!

Books I’m Planning On Reading:FirstRow




I have all of these books, either on my laptop, kindle, or in physical form. Four of these are ARCs to read (Dragon’s Realm, Ride On, The Price Guide, Song of Blood) so they go first! Then after those, I can work through my eight Library books that I have, and then go through there. Who thinks that I’m going to be able to read all of these in a month! Yeah, I don’t think so either, but a girl can dream…
