Monthly Wrap Up

State Of The Arc #6

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 July with 12 ARCs left to be read. 

I got approved for a lot of new ARCs in August. I’m still caught up on reading books before they come out, and my ratio is currently 88%, so this is absolutely something to be happy with. I’m going to try to get a little more ahead with my ARCs, especially since there are some on my request list that I’m seriously hoping get approved.

I got approved for 7 new books in August:

  • Travel Hacks by Keith Bradford
  • Murder at the Christmas Cookie Bake-Off by Darci Hannah
  • Tristan Strong Keeps Punching by Kwame Mbalia
  • Love, Chai, and Other Four-Letter Words by Annika Sharma
  • Patient Zero by Lydia Kang and Nate Pedersen
  • The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
  • From the Jewish Provinces by Fradl Shtok

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

  • There Came a Contagion by Doug Ingold — see my review here.
  • Cazadora by Romina Garber — see my review here.
  • Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia — see my review here.
