State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #10

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 November with 9 ARCs left to be read. 

In December, I got approved for 6 new ARCs, and I was thrilled about it (as usual). I didn’t get to spend as much time focusing on ARCs as I wanted to, since I was focused on the Hanukkah readathon, the holidays, and getting through the pile of library books I had checked out before they were due. But … at least I managed to stay on top of reading the ARCs before their publication dates, which I’m counting as a win. My overall ratio went down to 91%, but it’s still over 90% so that’s good enough for me. Here’s to a fresh start and higher ratios in 2022!

I got approved for 6 new books in December:

  • Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May
  • A Sprinkle in Time by Dana Mentink
  • Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch
  • Mind Like a Diamond by Amanda Pavlov
  • Ashes of Gold by J. Elle
  • As Seen on TV by Meredith Schorr
  • Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins — see my review here.
  • Up To No Gouda by Linda Reilly — see my review here.
  • Mind Like a Diamond by Amanda Pavlov — see my review here.

Here are the ARCs I still have to read:

  1. Once More With Chutzpah by Haley Neil
  2. Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch
  3. The Dark Queens by Shelley Puhak
  4. Ashes of Gold by J. Elle
  5. One for Sorrow by Helen Fields
  6. The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
  7. Daughter by Kate McLaughlin 
  8. Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May
  9. The Wild Girls by Phoebe Morgan
  10. A Sprinkle in Time by Dana Mentink
  11. Home Field Advantage by Dahlia Adler
  12. As Seen on TV by Meredith Schorr
