State of the ARC #37


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 96%.

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

Happy Reading

  1. Hi there Sarah! So sorry I didn't get to State of the ARC in July, it was a bit hectic. Gosh, I need to see what my current Netgalley feedback ratio is! I'm definitely no where near 96%!

    I don't have that many Netgalley ARC's and mine are mainly from authors, publishers and blog hosts. I guess I need to pay a bit more attention to Netgalley though...

    Enjoy your August reading!

    1. Don't even worry about it! August was super hectic for me and I was MIA most of the month.

      I include everything here, whether the ARCs are from NetGalley, BookSirens, authors, publishers, etc. I used to use Edelweiss but was kind of disappointed in the selection so I have not been back for a long while. I posted August's State of the ARC tonight though, so make sure to take a look!


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