Raider of the Lost ARCs

Raider of the Lost ARCs: Round #1 Recap

So, back at the end of May I posted about my TBR/Review copies game, Raider of the Lost ARCs. I intended to have monthly rounds but as I said in my June wrap-up, June was a bit of a flop for me, so round one actually ran from 1st June – 31st July 2020. I’m pretty happy with my progress this round and I’m excited to roll for another set for August.

First roll: 4 + 5 = 9
Narnia (light blue) = fantasy [A Song Below Water]

Read AND Reviewed! 1* added to Narnia.

Second roll: 4 + 2 = 6
Hufflepuff = yellow cover or featuring an animal [honestly, bit of a stretch but I’m hoping Sisters of Sword and Song does because there’s an animal on the cover]

Read AND Review scheduled! 1* added to Hufflepuff.

Third roll: 1 + 2 = 3
Hill House = horror [Pan’s Labyrinth]

…Not read.   BUT I did allow myself a ‘cheat’ and wrote a review for a back list title I’d already read that fit the prompt (Adaptation – Malinda Lo 💻 [NG])
