Monthly Wrap Up

State Of The ARC #5

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. Thank you to Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books for coming up with this super helpful monthly meme.

I finished June with 9 ARCs left to be read, and 1 that I had read and not yet reviewed. 

I got approved for a bunch of new ARCs in July. I’m caught up on reading books before they come out, and my ratio is currently 89%, so this is absolutely something to be happy with. Additionally, I earned a new badge for reviewing 100 books, which is a huge accomplishment!

I got approved for 10 new books in July:

  • Cold Brew Corpse by Tara Lush
  • Emperor’s Sword by Alex Gough
  • Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  • People Love Dead Jews by Dara Horn
  • Daughter by Kate McLaughlin
  • Roxy by Neil Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman
  • The 400-Calorie Mediterranean Diet Cookbook by Peter Minaki
  • Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
  • Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong
  • There Came a Contagion by Doug Ingold

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

  • Capture the Crown by Jennifer Estep — see my review here.

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

  • Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim — see my review here.
  • Emperor’s Sword by Alex Gough — see my review here.
  • Small Favors by Erin A. Craig — see my review here.
  • All’s Well by Mona Awad — see my review here.
  • The 400-Calorie Mediterranean Diet Cookbook by Peter Minaki — see my review here.
  • The Dating Dare by Jayci Lee — see my review here.
  • If the Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy — see my review here.

Here are the ARCs I still have to read:

  2. Cazadora by Romina Garber 
  3. Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia 
  4. People Love Dead Jews by Dara Horn
