State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #4

State of the ARC is a monthly meme temporarily hosted by Sarah at All The Book Blog Names Are Taken meant to motivate you to finish up your long overdue ARCs (Advanced or Early Reader Copies). This is its original intention, while some bloggers have tweaked it a bit for their own purposes, such as just keeping ARCs in order by due dates. Or you can just be a hot mess like me who sometimes misses publishing dates (or ignores them altogether) and needs a way to stay organized on what has been read, reviewed, or is still begging for attention.

I finished May with 16 ARCs left to be read, and 1 that I had read and not yet reviewed. I’m so proud of the progress that I made in June! My ratio is currently at 90%, and I couldn’t be happier.

I got approved for 2 new books in June:

  • Flavors of the Sun: The Sahadi’s Guide to Understanding, Buying, and Using Middle Eastern Ingredients by Christine Sahadi Whelan
  • The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik

I posted the review I didn’t get to from last month:

  • The Library of the Dead by T.L. Huchu — see my review here.

These are the ARCs that I read but haven’t reviewed yet:

  • Capture the Crown by Jennifer Estep

These are the ARCs that I read and reviewed, with links to my reviews:

  • Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid — see my review here.
  • For the Wolf by Hannah F. Whitten — see my review here.
  • The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin — see my review here.
  • The Doomsday Book of Fairy Tales by Emily Brewes — see my review here.
  • This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron — see my review here.
  • Flavors of the Sun: The Sahadi’s Guide to Understanding, Buying, and Using Middle Eastern Spices by Christine Sahadi Whelan — see my review here.
  • Where It All Lands by Jennie Wexler — see my review here.
  • Half Sick of Shadows by Laura Sebastian — see my review here.

Here are the ARCs I still have to read:

  1. Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim
  2. Small Favors by Erin A. Craig
  3. The Dating Dare by Jayci Lee
  4. All’s Well by Mona Awad
  5. If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy
  6. Cazadora by Romina Garber
  7. Before We Were Blue by E.J. Schwartz
  8. Sisters of the Wolf by Patricia Miller-Schroeder
  9. The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik

This monthly post has been helping immensely, so stay tuned next month to see future progress!
