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. I sometimes find a book or two via Edelweiss or BookSirens. Others 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.

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 95%.
How are you doing with your ARC goals? Let's talk ARCs!

I've not been on NetGalley for months. It stressed me out so I just kinda ghosted. I'm sure that will affect my chances if I ever decide to use it again but it is what it is. 95% is really good!ReplyDelete
I have been trying to stay away for a while. I typically go on when I get a message from a publicist or publisher inviting me to read something. Otherwise I have to stay away because it is so dangerous!Delete
