Clean Sweep ARC Challenge 2014

Are your ARC’s stacking up? Have published dates come and gone? Are you feeling like you need to get those piles under control? Are you avoiding NetGalley and Edelweiss? Or maybe you want to get ahead of your summer ARCS to make time for the beach? I answered yes to all but the last two of those questions - mainly because I don't do beach time and even though I am drowning under review copies I'm definitely not avoiding Netgalley & Edelweiss. I need to though, my ARC habit is way out of control so this is me trying to catch up a bit and being too desperate to wait for Netgalley November!
