May Clean Sweep ARC Challenge is hosted by
Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer and ME!



For the fourth year in a row during the month of May we will be challenging you to get those advanced reading copies read!  These can be e-ARCs, finished copies, audio and physical ARCs (regardless of release date).  As an added bonus, you will be able to schedule advanced reviews and free up your time to enjoy the warmer weather.  To make things fun there will be 24 hour Readathon (oh, God, what have I gotten myself into?) and a grand prize for a 2016 release!


So roll up your sleeves grab your brooms and check your NetGalley stats, Edelweiss haul, and those books you’ve meant to review in your TBR pile..  because it’s time to make a CLEAN SWEEP!
