State Of The ARC - July 2018

I saw this State of the ARC meme over at Avalinah's Books blog in January and thought it would be fun to join in.

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 July I blogged my reviews of these ARCs:

We've got the new excitement of a nine-spot Bingo game to play with our ARCs for the rest of this year too. Here's the topic grid with my choices so far:

ARC with your favourite colour cover
ARC of a debut book
Your oldest ARC
#ownvoices ARC
A nonfiction ARC An overdue ARC
ARC with sensitive social issues
A fluffy and happy ARC
A new-to-me genre ARC

My Entangled Lives review (Spoiler: tis brilliant!) is due to publish on the 1st of August with my thoughts on The Promise (as close to fluffy as my reading is likely to get!) following on the 4th.

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.


No State Of The ARC would be complete without checking out the additions to my ARC stash. I might have got a bit carried away this month!

Here are July's new arrivals

My next State of the ARC will be blogged on the 29th August.
