State Of The ARC - August 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 August I blogged my reviews of these ARCs:

My Conrad Monk review will be blogged on the 30th August and my Angelica Stone review will follow on the 31st.

We've got the 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


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.

Here are August's new arrivals

My next State of the ARC will be blogged on the 28th September.

  1. You've done well with the ARC reviews and the bingo card is a good way to pick out some upcoming reads! The hard bit of course is not getting more in. I'm failing badly on this with my TBR as I just grabbed another pile!

  3. Nice bit of books you got there. I only received one this week from NetGalley, Wyoming Legend by Diana Palmer. I don't read much other than pnr but I love her books so I couldn't pass it up.
