New Rules! - MUST READ!

Hey everyone! Harmony and I were talking the other night, and we wanted to try and start a new idea with the 1 ARC Tours.

First of all, if you are still going to be apart of tours, please fill out the form at the end of this post. We have a list of members now, but we need to get it updated! If you don't plan on being on any more tours, please don't fill out the form. Even if you already sent us the e-mail with your information, please fill out the form! (Also, remember that the tours are for the US and Canada only.)

Next, we're going to test out a new idea.

-You have one week to read the book after it's sent to you. This will be tracked. I'm going to have all the addresses on file. You'll e-mail me at onearctours[at]yahoo[dot]com to get the address of the person after you on the tour list.
-When you send the book out to them, you'll also e-mail me to let me know.
-When that person receives the book, they'll e-mail me at onearctours[at]yahoo[dot]com to let me know, and I'll send them the next address on the tour, etc.
-Whether or not you are posting your reviews will also be tracked, so make sure you're still doing that!
-If you have any questions about this process, please leave them in the comments or e-mail us.
-This new process will start with the tour The Witchy Worries of Abby Adams and continue to all tours that have started after that.
-A note from Erica: When you guys are signing up for tours, PLEASE leave your email address. It takes time to make checklists, and even more when I have to go searching for emails. If you repetitively are not leaving an email address, you will stop being put on tours.

Here's the form! Please make sure you fill this out if you're a member or want to be a member. :)

Tensions of Opposite by Kristina McBride

It’s been two years since Noelle disappeared. Two years since her bike was discovered, sprawled on a sidewalk. Two years of silence, of worry, of fear.

For those two long years, her best friend Tessa has waited, living her own life in a state of suspended animation. Because how can she allow herself to enjoy a normal high school life if Noelle can’t? How dare she have other friends, go to dances, date boys, without knowing what happened to the girl she thought she would share everything with?

And then one day, someone calls Noelle’s house. She’s alive.

A haunting psychological thriller taken straight from the headlines, The Tension of Opposites is a striking debut that explores the emotional aftermath of a kidnapping on the victim, and on the people she left behind.
Here's the list for this tour:

The Reckoning - Kelley Armstrong

Our next tour is for The Reckoning by Kelly Armstrong.

My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal.

But normal is one thing I'm not.

For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother—who just happens to be a sorcerer—but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.

Not normal.

My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us—permanently.

Definitely not normal.

And finally, I'm a genetically altered necro-mancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.

As far away from normal as it gets.

Here's the list for this tour:

1. Sandy
2. Erica
