Discussion | My ARC Shelves

Last month I saw a few of these great posts going around the blogosphere where bloggers shared their current ARC shelves and I thought it would be fun to join in as well!

This year has been a fantastic year for ARCs. I was approved for some of the most anticipated releases of the year on Netgalley, had all of my blogging dreams come true when I started receiving physical ARCs from UK publishers, and also had the opportunity to work directly with some authors. Needless to say, I’m incredibly grateful for all of the ARCs I receive but on the flip side of this success, there is also a mounting collection of overdue ARCs which I feel endlessly guilty about.

Like Destiny, I think that being transparent about what goes on behind the bloggers’ computer is a great way to show the reality of blogging life (lots and lots of unread books) and builds solidarity between us by showing you’re not alone in your struggle/guilt around ARCs!

State of the ARC | #4

State-of-the-ARC

State of the ARC is a monthly meme at Avalinah’s Books meant to motivate you to finish up all your long overdue ARCs (Advanced or Early Reader Copies).

I have been dreading doing State of the ARC this month because I have been failing so hard with my ARCs, especially since going back to university. November was not a great reading month for me so I’m super behind in general, and only managed to read 1 ARC! I’m really looking forward to January when Destiny will be hosting the readathon for overdue ARCs so I can really focus on my poor neglected ARCs.

Blogmas | My Netgalley ARCs

Blogmas | My Netgalley ARCs

NetGalley was not only my first introductions to ARCs but it was also, essentially, my introduction to the book blogging community! Since I joined earlier in 2017, I have learned a lot about book blogging, what ARCs are (this acronym took me ages to understand) and how to request them on NetGalley. I’m yet to receive any physical ARCs and that’s something that I’m hoping to work towards in 2018, but for now, I have lots of e-ARCs that I need to get through.
