State of the ARC

State Of The ARC #25

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 13 ARCs left to be read. 

March turned out to be a really hectic month for me, and I didn’t get as far with my ARCs as I was hoping to. I definitely didn’t do very well with requesting less books, since there were a bunch of really good books that I needed to request (obviously). I even got approved for some of them, including a few that I have been really looking forward to reading. And while my ratio went down a tad to 94%, I have read and reviewed all of my ARCs through the end of May, so that feels pretty good! I have high hopes for a more successful April.

I got approved for 9 new books in March:

  • Tasty. Healthy. Cheap. by Kevin Tatar
  • Tarot Therapy by Leona Nichole Black
  • The Witching Tide by Margaret Meyer
  • Lone Women by Victor LaValle
  • The Book of Witches by Jonathan Strahan
  • Don’t Want to Be Your Monster by Deke Moulton
  • Jews in the Garden by Judy Rakowsky
  • Paper Cuts by Ellery Adams
  • Murder at the Pumpkin Pageant by Darci Hannah

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

  • Tasty. Healthy. Cheap. by Kevin Tatar — see my review here.
  • Once More with Feeling by Elissa Sussman — see my review here.
  • Lone Women by Victor LaValle — see my review here.
  • Paper Cuts by Ellery Adams — see my review here.
  • The Wind Knows My Name by Isabel Allende — see my review here.
  • Tarot Therapy by Leona Nichole Black — see my review here.

Here are the ARCs I still have to read:

Which ARCs are you excited about this month? Have you read any of the ones on my list?
