State of the ARC | #8

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).

March was an unexpected ARC month for me as I had a lot of new release ARCs due for release this month. Thanks to January’s Late-a-thon providing me with a way to catch up with a lot of my overdue ARCs, I was able to get my ARC reading (mostly) back on track just in time for many of my new releases. Thankfully, this month’s reading was went much better than last month’s reading as well so it was a great reading month all around!

As of the end of March I am also going on a new release ARC break, with the exception of the four new releases I have coming up in April and May. Although being approved for new release ARCs and getting to read them ahead of release is massively exciting and something that I am always, always incredibly thankful for I have found it making reading a bit stressful lately as well as taking over my TBR’s. I want to start focusing more on the books I own as well as books from the library.

WWW Wednesday | 30th January 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

This week started off as a great reading week but ended up with a bit of a reading slump due to some issues I’m having with one of my current reads. I’m also pretty tired from juggling working part time, studying, writing my PhD applications and trying to have some other sense of life outside of these things. Finding time to read is hard and my brain is very tired!
