State Of The ARC #21

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 […]

State Of The ARC #20

I finished September with 14 ARCs left to be read.  October, or ARCtober, as I like to think of it, was a smashing success. I’ve continued to reduce how many books I’ve requested, while reading as many ARCs as I could. In fact, I managed to halve my […]

Monthly Wrap Up September 2022

September was a relatively busy month. While addressing my health issues, my doctors decided to change up some of my medications, which caused side effects including crippling fatigue, making it hard to function. Luckily this wasn’t until closer to the end of the month, so I still managed […]

State Of The ARC #18

I finished July with 18 ARCs left to be read.  I spent quite a bit of time reading ARCs in August, but I’m feeling a bit dejected. Although I have no one but myself to blame, I broke even on my ratio this month. I read 11 ARCs […]

State Of The ARC #17

I finished June with 20 ARCs left to be read.  Devoting time to ARCs is now becoming a habit each month, and while I’m still getting approved for a bunch, I’m finding myself requesting less (but not fully on a requesting ban). It’s very heartening to see progress […]

Monthly Wrap Up June 2022

June was a busy month for me, and it was still pretty stressful. I’m so grateful for my friends and good books, because they’ve kept me from completely falling apart. In other news, America officially sucks and I’m so embarrassed to live here. Reading has become an escape […]

State Of The ARC #16

I finished May with 25 ARCs left to be read.  June was an amazing reading month for me, and I really focused on reading ARCs, since I was becoming a bit overwhelmed by how many I had. My ratio went from 88% to 91%, and I was able […]

State Of The ARC #15

I finished April with 30 ARCs left to be read.  In May, I got approved for 10 new ARCs, bringing my total to 40. It got out of control, and I started feeling super stressed about it. So instead of getting overwhelmed, I devoted some serious time to […]

State Of The ARC #14

I finished March with 21 ARCs left to be read.  In April, I got approved for a whopping 18 new ARCs! Despite focusing heavily on reading ARCs this month, I naturally fell a little behind my intended schedule of reviewing books the month before they’re published. I managed […]
