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

(My review of Women Of Power in Anglo-Saxon England will be blogged tomorrow)

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

RRB (Read, Reviewed and Blogged) essentially means those book reviews are completed and I'm just waiting for their scheduled blog post date. None overdue!

No State Of The ARC would be complete without checking out the additions to my ARC stash: a slightly overwhelming 21 new books this month. Oops! I think book hoarding must be my emotional comfort blanket!

Here are May's new arrivals

    1. I've already had a five-star read from the new haul, the Marcus Aurelius, with several four-stars too. Well pleased!

    1. I've been pleased with the diversity of books coming up for blog tour reviews and on NetGalley recently :-)
