I got my first ARC!

I'm so excited. I feel so priviledged to read something that hasn't been released to the public. I know some of the more seasoned book bloggers do this all the time so its like no big deal. However, I just got my first two ARC novels and I'm excited!

Thieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot by Jodi Compton
(TBR July 26, 2011)
This is the sequel to Hailey's War which I never read. I hope I will be able to enjoy this book without reading the first. Gangster girls, can't wait to read this! Seems like it will be a good summer read. Which I'm going to be doing a lot of since all my shows have recently shown their season finales. Speaking of, who all saw The Vampire Diaries finale? How good was that!? Prediction, Damon and Elena fall in love this coming season. Anyways,  that is another topic.

Hassie Calhoun: A Las Vegas Novel of Innocence by Pamela Cory
(TBR June 1, 2011)
I enjoy novels about young people chasing their dreams which it seems like this book is about. Plus it begins in the 1960s in Las Vegas which I think is a great time and location for a singer. I'm putting together my list of books to read this summer. This is the first summer in years where I'm not in classes. Other than studying for the GRE, I have nothing to do this summer other than read and write (and drive 2000 miles to Denver, CO. CAN'T WAIT). Anyways, these two books are on my summer reading list along with:


Very light and fluffy reads this summer with so much drama going on in the world, it's nice to read these kinds of books where the biggest drama is a first kiss or a dad marrying his young girlfriend. I love to escape into the teeny booper world as my hubs calls it.

Question: WHAT IS ON YOUR READING LIST FOR THE SUMMER?

congrats on getting your first ARCS! How exciting!! I was actually sent my first ones last week, but they've been delayed in the post which is *so* frustrating!

Congrats on the ARCs. It is definitely exciting to get something early. It's even better when you first see the book in stores and can say you already read it. Feels very exclusive. Or tell a non-book blogger you have an early copy and they will be all over you about it.
