Don’t ask me how, I don’t freaking know. I didn’t even realize it was this much until I freaking listed all of them on one page. Holy crap. It was almost like I reviewed an ARC a day, which I didn’t since I know a lot of these ended up going up on the same day. Someone please tell me to do better at checking what days I already signed up for. Posting three / four blog tour posts on the same day is tough to remember. I mean once I get the confirmation email I already have it scheduled but I don’t always set up the post until the night before – my own downfall, really. I need to do better.
I may need to take a hiatus from blog tours haha. This is bad.
Did this make a good enough dent in my list of ARCs? Apparently not, since the last time I checked I apparently have over 200 that I was approved for total. Not including the ones that I received personally from Shelf Awareness giveaways that I haven’t cataloged in my spreadsheet yet. I’m slacking, fam. Slacking.
So clearly this doesn’t include the ones that I got physically that I never ended up adding to my ARC spreadsheet, so this is definitely off by a few, but ugh yeah. This is crazy, fam. I should totally make a separate spreadsheet for the blog tours that I’m doing since that’s what most of my ARCs are coming from, and that’s why the other section is so big. Honestly I’m considering things overdue as the publication date already passed, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I got it before it was released. Like there are a few on Netgalley that came out years ago, and I only got accepted for them this year, so are those technically overdue? Oh whale.
You know what? I’m just gonna be proud of myself for being this amazing. I’m freaking amazing, and clearly this mini-hiatus is paying off, so cheer for ya girl, fam. I did great. Yes, I freaking did.
Time to go back to sleep now.
