If there’s one thing I pride myself in, it’s supporting the authors of which I read and loved an Advance Reader Copy. It’s easy [and true] to say that we’re already being rewarded for our work [aka reading and reviewing] by having the opportunity to read the books early, but.. Sometimes I feel like supporting their work in other ways is important to authors as well. Which is why I try buying finished copies of the ARC’s I really loved. Try being the keyword. I have a list of finished copies I have yet to buy since money isn’t allowing it right now but I will eventually!
Anyway. What I’m trying to say with all that is.. I’m here to share the finished copies I bought after reading an eARC. [Or ones I have yet to buy but definitely will.] So this week’s topic is “Books I bought because..” and I’m making it.. “ARC’s I read and then decided supporting the author was definitely worth it!”.
All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out.
The first four books are all fantasy, and I love them all dearly for different reasons. The Beautiful has amazing writing, where Coral is a perfect-fitting puzzle. Feather features angels, which is one of my eternal weaknesses when it comes to fantasy. Sorcery of Thorns? Libraries! And then there’s the fifth, a science fiction book I didn’t expect to cherish as much as I ended up doing. I read ARC’s of all these books. The only one I have yet to buy a finished copy of is Feather and I will. I definitely will.
Here’s a bit more about the books:
The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh ~ YA Fantasy, slow-paced, gorgeous writing [review!]
Coral by Sara Ella ~ YA Fantasy, mental health, beautifully put together [review!]
Feather by Olivia Wildenstein ~ YA Fantasy, angels, very intriguing, broody character [review!]
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson ~ YA Fantasy, books!, a demon that stole my heart [review!]
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy ~ YA Sci-Fi, King Arthur-retelling, queer [review!]
These five are all contemporary novels and all important for different reasons, for different rep.
Here’s a bit more about the books:
100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie Emmons ~ YA Contemporary, temporary blindness, amputee [Review!]
My Whole Truth by Mischa Thrace ~ YA Contemporary, queer rep, own-voices – rape [Review!]
The Sky is Mine by Amy Beashel ~ YA Contemporary, abuse, rape, queer rep [Review!]
This Heart of Mine by C.C. Hunter ~ YA Contemporary, importance of donating organs, sass [Review!]
Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin ~ YA Contemporary, brutal, revenge of rape survivor, a-ma-zing [Review!]
Are you “in” the ARC-game? What are ARC’s you bought finished copies of?
If you don’t read ARC’s – what’s a book you considered buying multiple copies of simply for the sake of supporting the author?
What’s a book you really want to buy a finished copy of? Or.. What book would you buy a second copy of if you don’t read ARC’s?
Feel free to leave a link to your TTT so I can check it out!
