State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #13

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 February with 19 ARCs left to be read. 

In March, I got approved for 12 new ARCs, and so many of them were books that I’m really looking forward to. I’ve been working really hard on getting all the books read and reviewed at least a month before they’re scheduled to release, and I’m so proud of that. I read another 10 ARCs this month, although with all the approvals, my list only got longer. My current ratio is at 88%, which is a tiny bit above last month, but I’m hoping to get it over 90% in April.

I got approved for 12 new books in March:

  • Siren Queen by Nghi Vo
  • The Art of Prophecy by Wesley Chu
  • Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater
  • See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon
  • Our Lady of Mysterious Ailments by T.L. Huchu
  • Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
  • Upgrade by Blake Crouch
  • The Matchmaker’s Gift by Lynda Cohen Loigman
  • Murder at the Blueberry Festival by Darci Hannah
  • The Memory Keeper of Kyiv by Erin Litteken
  • Three Kisses, One Midnight by Roshani Chokshi, Sandhya Menon, and Evelyn Skye
  • Booked on a Feeling by Jayci Lee
