State Of The ARC - March 2020

I saw this State of the ARC meme over at Avalinah's Books blog in January 2018 and thought it would be fun to join in. It's temporarily being hosted at All The Book Blog Names Are Taken.

The idea is to keep track of all the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) books I've got awaiting reading and reviewing, and to make headway through the overdue pile. For my State of the ARC, I am including all books sent to me for review whether they are pre-publication copies (as ARCs should be) or simply review copies of books already available publicly. I don't include books that I have purchased myself, book exchange swaps, or free downloads.

In March I blogged my reviews of these ARCs:

Here's my State of the ARC numbers as of today:

Awaiting Reading

Read / Reviewed / Blogged

Overdue

NetGalley

10

2 R

5

From Authors

2

0

0

Blog Tours

3

1 R / 1 RRB

0

From Publishers

2

0

0


RRB (Read, Reviewed and Blogged) essentially means those book reviews are completed and I'm just waiting for their scheduled blog post date. That red 5 overdue isn't good.

No State Of The ARC would be complete without checking out the additions to my ARC stash: 11 new books this month to match the 11 I read, but I'm still behind on my NetGalley reading so this is too many!

Here are March's new arrivals

  1. Don't beat yourself up about the overdue pile-things are so crazy right now! Normal routine seems to be out the window for most of us!

    1. I'm terrible for stressing about overdue reads - it feels like having forgotten to do my homework!

  2. I like the Drinkwater covers! The use of colour is great and I'm sort of curious about it.

    1. I enjoyed the ideas in Drinkwater's shorter story, Helene, so am looking forward to seeing how he extends this world through the Lost Solace series

  3. I've never participated in this meme but I'm thinking I probably should! My ARC pile is a bit f a disgrace...

    Good luck with catching up on your overdue reviews! Everything else seems to be in hand. If it makes you feel better, I have more than 5 overdue that I'm trying to prioritise but the pesky mood reader that is me makes it difficult!

    1. My ARCs were in a real mess before I started State Of The ARC and it took me the best part of a year to really get on top of them. I'm having a bit of a wobble at the moment, but generally thinking about ARCs at a set time each month has done the trick!
