State Of The ARC - April 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 April I blogged my reviews of these ARCs:

(My On Wilder Seas review will be blogged on the 30th)

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

Awaiting Reading

Read / Reviewed / Blogged

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 which almost equals the number of ARCs I've read so I'm pleased with that. Plus, the overdues have dropped from 5 to 2.

Here are April's new arrivals
