Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read

This week's question: Craziest thing you'd be willing to do for an ARC you are dying to read (aka what would you doooo-ooo for that ARC you want? *think of the Klondike bar music*

To be honest I'm kind of ambivalent about ARCs because I'm a mood reader. It's great when I'm allowed access to something I'm interested in on Netgalley, but I try to keep my requests selective because if they pile up the reading & reviewing becomes more of a stressor than a pleasure. Also if I don't get access to an ARC, oh well, it'll be released eventually. That being said, there are always new releases I'm dying to read and right now these two top the list: 


I was lucky enough to get chapter samplers for these two books the last day of NYCC, it's only made me more anxious to read the rest. Uprooted seems to only have a selective few physical ARCs, I'm hoping it'll go up on Edelweiss at some point. It comes out June 30. JUNE! BEA 2015 will have come and gone by then.  Shadow Scale may only have a very limited ARC release due to the popularity of Seraphina (an excellent book).

Nevertheless, for these ARCs I'd be willing to do any social media promotion Random House asked, and as for going extreme lengths, I wouldn't say no to holding a advertisement in Times Square for a few hours, perhaps in costume. I'd fit right in with all the Elmos, Spidermen, Naked Cowboys, etc. wandering around there.

I'm totally with you on the mood reading! I don't do so well with ARCs because I request it and then when I'm approved a week later I might be feeling something totally different. Insane answer! Times Square? You're brave! :P Old follower!

Here's my F&F!

Dressing up and holding a sign is a great idea :-) . . I am like a child at Christmas on NetGalley and am trying to wean myself away from it :-)

Ha ha there's nothing wrong with that. Actually writing this has compelled me go through the catalogues so…It's ok if the release date is months away! is what I tell myself.

Yes! That's exactly why I tend to be particular. I hate to DNF also, which I acknowledge is silly, but it's how I feel.
