State of the ARC | #7 The Dreaded Reading Slump

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).

Whilst January was a great start to the year for me in terms of catching up with my ARCs, my February reading hasn’t even come close either in terms of my ARCs or my reading more generally. As of today, I have only read two books and am less than 20% of the way through my third book (which I’m definitely not going to have finished by the end of the month, which is tomorrow!)

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 💚

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).

Welcome to the first State of the ARC of 2019 and, thanks to Destiny’s late-a-thon, my ARC reading is off to a pretty good start! I’ve also received some amazing ARCs recently so I’m very excited to see how my State of the ARC progresses throughout the year!

January TBR | #Late-a-thon edition

Hello, new year friendos!

I have honestly been so looking forward to my January TBR for the past few weeks because it meant that the late-a-thon would finally be here to rescue me from my overdue ARCs. Destiny knows what we all need to get our 2019 off to the right start.

I’ve been incredibly fortunate to receive some excellent ARCs throughout 2018 and I have been feeling super guilty about how long some of them have been waiting for me to read and review them. I’m hoping that the late-a-thon will serve its purpose of helping me catch up on those pesky overdue ARCs, meaning that I can finally review them (sorry authors and publishers!) and move onto my more recent ARCs.

State of the ARC #5 | The Last ARCs of 2018

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).

Usually I don’t post my State of the ARC until the beginning of each month, but after seeing Evalina’s last State of the ARC of 2018 and shared with us all the new bingo sheet for 2019 I couldn’t believe I hadn’t planned to do a State of the ARC wrap-up! Instead of the review I had planned to write today (which definitely has nothing to do with the fact I didn’t get round to writing it…), I’ve decided to post my next State of the ARC a few days early and combine it with a little recap of my 2018 ARCs.
