State of the ARC #45


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.

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. I see this and just feel guilty lol. I'm so behind with NetGalley! It's scary!

  2. I was pleased with my ratio of %89 but yours puts mine to shame.
    Here's my April 2022 - State of the Arc

    1. Oh, definitely be proud of that 89%!! It took me ages to get here, and lots of willpower in the face of all the books I see coming out that I want RIGHT NOW. Thanks for stopping by!


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