State of the ARC #3 – ARC August a Bust

State of the ARC #3 – ARC August a Bust

Thank you so much to Avalinah’s Books for hosting this meme – and a HUGE thank you to Louise @ Foxes and Fairy Tales for reminding me to post for August. I know that Evalina is still on vacation and I’m so happy that she is enjoying her time! But I still wanted to make sure that I could talk about the lack of progress that I made for ARC August.

  1. Before I Disappear – Danielle Stinson
  2. Comeback – Lyn Ashwood & Rachel Rose
  3. The Corpse Wore Stilettos – M. J. O’Neill
  4. Into the Wildbarrens – Christian Sterling
  5. The Lady Rogue – Jenn Bennett
  6. How the Light Gets In – Katy Upperman
  7. The Year I Left – Christina Brae
  8. All the Bad Apples – Moira Fowley-Doyle
  9. Don’t Say a Word – Amber Lynn Natusch

So I’m still really debating on whether or not I should still accept regular review requests, or only sign up for blog tours and read those ARCs. I haven’t made a decision yet clearly, but I know that I seem to be able to read the blog tour ARCs more than the others. Not sure why. It’s definitely not based on the content at all. I think it’s just because I have an actual deadline that I need to have my review post for, and that makes me want to make sure I don’t half-ass my reading and review of those ARCs. What do you guys think?

Also thank you so much to Evalina for teaching me how to make this infographic with Infogram because without her, I wouldn’t have been able to figure it out. She’s seriously the best, so be sure to recognize that.

As you can probably see, my Netgalley ratio is dismal, and I need to work on it. Same as Edelweiss, and I’m sure that they absolutely hate me right now. I swear I’m going to get it together!

There may be some on here that I didn’t end up adding because they were pretty recent additions, so I’ll have to do that. I’ll keep you updated on my Sunday posts and these posts, so stay tuned for that!

See you for another State of the ARC post in September!

    1. Ugh you’re seriously the sweetest! I’m telling you, I think it helps to be on blog tours because then I have to read them. And usually I get some really good ones through blog tours that I end up liking so it works out for me. Oh gosh yeah I need to stop requesting Netgalley ARCs until I get it down again. Infographic is from Infogram if you want to try it!

  1. I’m feeling you so hard on this — esp that infographic I only get ARCs through NG and I’ve just recently got on Edelweiss but that site gives me the biggest headaches LMAO. But yeah, I’ve stopped requesting coz I’m such a mood reader and deadlines give me hives. Haha I enjoy participating in blog tours though! I think in that case it’s a much bigger commitment and there’s more expectation? But also blogging with others about it might help motivate me? I don’t know what it is but it kicks my ass in gear!

    1. Oh gosh yeah I don’t go through Edelweiss because I don’t know how to get approved, and I need to make sure that I read stuff on general. I think starting off with the Read Now choices on Edelweiss may help eventually get approved for stuff. At least that’s what my plan will be eventually lol.

      Ahh Dini, you know I’m a mood reader as well lol. And I’m glad you like to participate in Blog Tours! Those are my favorite so much omg. I think I totally get what you mean about blogging with others! I totally, totally get it 😀

      1. Haha yeah, I really wish Edelweiss was easier to use. It’s funny that some people have said it’s easier to get approved on there? But don’t know how long they’ve been using it! Will give it a try at some point when I’m not drowning in overdue ARCs 😅

    1. Thank you! I definitely am trying to keep up (I just need to stop requesting as much all the time lol). I appreciate it so much ❤ I enjoy most of them for the most part. There are a few that I ended up not liking but it may just be a case of it's me, not the book. I think that's going to be my line now lol.

  2. Don’t worry, Edelweiss really hates me. It’s like once in a blue moon, I’ll actually get an accepted and read a DRC, but any other times, I’d get denied like there is no tomorrow. I also read blog tour ARC’s quicker than anything else, possibly because there is a deadline or something like that.
