#ARCSTRAVAGANZA: Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things


Oh, Memorial Day weekend always exhausts me since as many Americans know, that extra day off means, you try to squeeze literally everything you can and need to do into it so you can feel accomplished. Me = half asleep/half unconscious while writing this, so please, ignore anything that does not make sense. I’m blaming it on the holiday. But it’s Mondayyyyyyyyyyyy, and that means another glorious meme!

#ARCstravaganza is hosted by the wonderful ladies of YA and Wine – Krysti and Sarah – where each week, we showcase one of the best perks of being a book blogger – those glorious ARCs – on our blogs, Instagrams, or both! And when you participate? You’ll be entered to win a YA ARC each month! How cool is that? Find out more about it here!

I present this week’s feature ARC without further ado…


Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldredge & Carrie DuBois-Shaw

Pride and Prejudice meets Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot in this humorous and heartfelt debut about a loving, quirky family on the hunt for the mythical Sasquatch.

Hunting for monsters was never so awkward.

It’s bad enough that Samantha’s parents, charter members of the Northern Ohio Bigfoot Society, have dragged their daughter around forever, hunting for yetis. But now they’re doing it on national TV, and worse, in front of an aristocratic prep-school crew including a boy who disdains Samantha’s family.

But when he scorns her humble Ohio roots, she becomes determined to take him down. As they go to war, their friction and attraction almost distract them from the hint that Sasquatch may actually be out there somewhere…

I would like to thank the amazing, fabulous, amazingly fabulous Elizabeth over @ Bedazzled Booklover (it’s full of books and sparkles, and I mean, how epic is that?), because without her amazing help, there would not be this book sitting on my floor with my howling Bigfoot stuffed animal and glorious Finding Bigfoot DVD (yeah, I’m in that deep). We fangirled over this book together – her over the Pride and Prejudice love. Me…over the Bigfoot aspects (as you can so clearly see from the picture above). Um, FINDING BIGFOOT FOR YA. FINDING BIGFOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. *THE SQUEALS WILL NEVER END*

So when the lovely opportunity came up (aka Elizabeth sweetly messaged me), MY HEART. THE FEELS. I HAVEN’T STOPPED INTERNAL SCREAMING SINCE THE DAY THIS ARRIVED.

This isn’t out until August, but there is no way that this isn’t getting read sooner. Like, maybe today. XD It is a holiday, right?

Okay, I’m going to try and get some book chill right now. Wish me luck?

But once again, thank you so much, Elizabeth, for all of your help! ❤ And don’t forget to check out her amazing blog here! It’s full of such YA fun including reviews, tags, and other goodness. She also just started on Booktube this year, so double yay!!

What arcs do you have that you’re fangirling about? Anyone else fangirling hardcore about this book (I know Rendz & Birdie are! ;))?? What books do you not believe you got your hands on? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

      Ahahahahaha. XD No, no, I feel the same. I was so invested on whether or not there would be pirates for you in Blacksouls. XD But thankies! I definitely think the fangirling will probably hit new heights soon. XD
