State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #21

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 October with 10 ARCs left to be read. 

November feels like it just started, and it’s already over. I tried my best to stay on top of ARCs, but it feels like no matter how many ARCs I read, I got approved for more than I could get through. And just before the month ended, I got approved for 3 new ones. So that brought my ratio down to 95%, which is still pretty good. I’m planning to get through the rest of my 2022 ARCs and continue to make some good progress on my 2023 ARCs in December. Plus, I have some books that I’m really excited about on my ARC TBR.

I got approved for 10 new books in November:

  • Planning Perfect by Haley Neil
  • Extra Witchy by Ann Aguirre
  • Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute by Talia Hibbert
  • Spice Road by Maiya Ibrahim
  • Six Sweets Under by Sarah Fox
  • Tear Down the Throne by Jennifer Estep
  • No Quiet Water by Shirley Miller Kamada
  • The Déjà Glitch by Holly James
  • On the Savage Side by Tiffany McDaniel
  • Rivers of London: Deadly Ever After by Ben Aaronovitch

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