State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #7

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 started September with 14 ARCs left to be read. 

I got approved for 7 new ARCs in September. I struggled a bit with reading books before they came out this month, but really worked on it this month. My ratio is hovering at 89%. I’ve got quite a few due in October, especially early this month, so this month is going to be a busy one for me. Fingers crossed that I’ll finally get on top of everything soon!

I got approved for 7 new books in September:

  • Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins
  • The Book Binder’s Daughter by Jessica Thorne
  • Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee
  • Medicine in the Middle Ages by Juliana Cummings
  • The Wild Girls by Phoebe Morgan
  • Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer
  • A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow

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