State of the ARC is a monthly feature hosted by Evelina at Avalinah's Books - and now me, too! I took over temporary hosting duties back in early 2020. A couple months ago Evelina asked if I would like to co-host and of course I said yes! If you are new to the meme, you can check out the guidelines HERE.
Links go to my review. The majority of the ARCs I receive are through NetGalley. Some have come from publicists, or were offered to me from a publisher who specifically approved me for it on NetGalley; I will always note in the review how I acquired the ARC.
January was terrible in terms of reviews - I did none for ARCs. But I have at least FINISHED many, so that is a plus. Now I just have to get out of this reviewing slump and these numbers will look much better in February.
Valcour - April, 2021
The Founding Fortunes - January, 2020
I have tried to read this book for over a year. it is not the book or the writing or anything of that nature. I have come to the conclusion that I have simply burned out on reading about the same men over and over. The book is fantastic and I highly recommend it, I just need a break from the Revolutionary War. I will come back to it in the future.

When I first started blogging my monthly State of the ARC I felt like I was drowning in ARCs. My main goal was to get my NetGalley feedback ratio above 80% and thanks to this meme, I slowly but surely clawed my way up. At my highest I was at 97%. I am currently at 92%.
