I thought it was about time I started doing this since I’ve been getting more and more ARCs requests approved, and I’ve been getting review requests from publishers. It’d be nice to see for myself what I’ve been doing with my ARCs!
So here goes, I put all my data in excel and abracadabra’d this graph! woo!
Most of my ARCs are from surprise surprise Netgalley! I’ve been getting approved more and more, and one publisher actually autoapproved me, that feel so good. This year I started with a blank slate, I finished all my ARCs from 2018 in 2018, so I knew that everything I requested later was for this year.
I also got approved for a book on Edelweiss! That’s really a first, I haven’t done much on Edelweiss and just started requesting ARCs that seemed interesting to get a feel for the website. It’s not a huge book, but at least I’m making progress!
I’ve read quite a few ARCs already, I just haven’t had the time to write up reviews, I did on Netgalley, I’m just nog sure if I should post them on my blog (thoughts??)
So after getting approved for so many ARCs, I put myself on a ban. Then #reviewpit happened and I just kind of requested to review 4 books. It could have been so much worse I swear!!
Up until today, I’ve had a total of 22 ARCs, below are the ones I haven’t read yet, and the ones I’ve read and might post a review on my blog (some of them are definitely coming!)
In at the Deep End
The A-Z of Gender and Sexuality: from ace to ze
Descendant of the Crane
To Best the Boys
The Year After You
Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful
When Summer Ends
The Quick and Easy Guide to Queer and Trans Identities
And having read these ARCs give me the opportunity to add them to my State of the ARC Bingo! This is the first time I’m participating and I’m very excited. I haven’t added all of my books, I’m sure I could add more, but let’s just wait and see what will happen.
I’ve got quite a road ahead, but at least I’m making progress.. if I don’t keep requesting books that is.. Oh well, I’ll manage somehow! Have you read any ARCs that you’re really excited about, or did you see some I’ve read or planning to read you’re curious about?
Until next time,
