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 […]

State Of The ARC #19

I finished August with 18 ARCs left to be read.  I’ve set a goal for myself to have my ARCs read at least a month in advance, and I’ve managed to successfully do that with my NetGalley ARCs this month. Plus, since slowing down on requesting, I’m starting […]

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 […]

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 […]

State Of The ARC #13

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 […]

State Of The ARC #12

I finished January with 18 ARCs left to be read.  In February, I got approved for 11 new ARCs, and I can’t wait to read them all! Fortunately, I got a bunch of ARCs that I’m super thrilled about.  I’ve been mindful of the due dates, and have […]

State Of The Arc #11

I finished December with 12 ARCs left to be read.  In January, I got approved for 11 new ARCs, and so many of them were books I was really excited for. However, I didn’t read nearly as many ARCs as I was hoping to, although I did get […]
