State of The ARC #33


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.

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 91%.

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

Happy Reading

  1. Phew! I finally finished mine. :)

  2. You're always killing me with all the awesome history. I'm curious about so many of these including that pirate one...

    1. I ended up liking it far more than I thought I would, as I was completely unfamiliar with the pirate featured here. He was a bad bad man, as they were and still are. Still, a pretty decent read.


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