State of the ARC #34


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.

Review or Feedback Sent

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. I don't really do ARCs but I do look forward to reading your reviews that may encourage me to pick up one or more of the books later.

    1. Once again I have big plans for the weekend while Eleanor has to be at her dad's house, and hopefully I can get them posted. I always try to make ARC reviews my priority but sometimes I have a few other reads that demand a review immediately and ARCs get shoved to the side.


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