Tackling the TBR Week 12: Mar 22 - Mar 31, 2020

My TBR has been out of control for YEARS. Then in January of 2019 I started tracking weekly my true reading/acquiring habits, and voila! I have been able to keep on top of things a little bit better. I may never get below 1,000 books, but at least I won't be topping out over 5,000! When a book cover is linked, it goes to the review here on my blog.

I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!

If you read these posts often, you will recall that it's usually just a boring list of numbers. I am trying to make it more interactive and show off what I am reading and potential treasures I am finding.

I am not really surprised by this slight increase. I mean, we have been home for about a month now (one week of Spring Break, then three of no school), I can spend far more time perusing Kindle Unlimited even though I have literally HUNDREDS of unread books on my physical shelves and Kindle right now. OI.

Any of these catch your eye? Have you already read any? Let me know!

Happy Reading!

State of the ARC #22

State of the ARC is a monthly feature hosted by Avalinah's Books.
All the rules can be found at the link provided. I am temporarily hosting for Evelina until she is able to get back into it. So, until then, thanks for joining me here!

Links go to Goodreads, unless I have finished the review. The majority of the ARCs I receive are through NetGalley. Some have also 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.

Awaiting My Attention: 0

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% even with two NetGalley ARCs due (Tombstone and Race Against Time), and The Girls Are Gone waaaaaaaay overdue. Now that I am back in the swing of things, getting those reviews done will be priorities.

How have you done with your ARCs in the last couple months without State of the ARC around? Did you keep posting your own, or are you just starting back now?

I am so excited to be helping out, let's talk ARCs!

Happy Reading

Stacking the Shelves #88

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc.

Kindle Unlimited
10126170 32600750. sy475  27261466. sy475

Might as well take advantage of the trial before it expires; almost none of the books on my TBR are ever available on KU. The Great Circus Train Wreck is the only one that was actually on the list before this little spree 😐😐😐

I guess I was in the mood for other man-made disasters that might end okay for some people, seeing as how the 'president' has fucked up the one we are living beyond repair.

What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!
