State of the ARC #50


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 authors, 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.

Review or Feedback Sent
None because the last two months have been crazy and I have done ZERO reviews.

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 93%.

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

Happy Reading


  1. I have a ton of NG ARCs to go through as well. Hope you read faster than I can.

    1. I am in such a slump right now that even though I have tons of interesting ARCs...I want nothing to do with almost any of them.

  2. Essex Dogs! And The Tudors In Love hmm...

    Ooh the Ruins. Should I read it???

    1. It's okay, and I think you will like it even though you will get as pissed at all the adults as I was. I still like Madam way more.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
