State Of The ARC - March 2019

I saw this State of the ARC meme over at Avalinah's Books blog in January 2018 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 March I blogged my reviews of these ARCs:

(The Pianist Of Yarmouk review will be blogged on the 31st March.)

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.
I knew March was going to be a busy reading month, but hadn't realised quite how long a book Empires Of Dust was going to be. It was easily equivalent to three of my 'normal' length books so I have slipped a little and have an overdue! It's The Other Americans by Laila Lalami which I'm looking forward to reading next.


No State Of The ARC would be complete without checking out the additions to my ARC stash. Only seven again this month. That's fewer than I read so yay me!!

Here are March's new arrivals
