Wrap Up | January 2019

Wrap Up | January 2019

Thanks to January’s late-a-thon, 2019 is off to a pretty good start. Although I’ve been horrifically busy with my PhD application and starting a new job I was able to get a fair few overdue ARCs finished up as well as (finally) posting to a reasonably consistent level. Thank you to all of you who have been cheering me along my PhD application journey and leaving such ace comments on my posts this month 💚

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!
