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

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.

April was a wonderful month for ARC reading! I gave five or six of these books a full five star rating and I don't think any book got below a three.


No State Of The ARC would be complete without checking out the additions to my ARC stash. Twelve new books during April, but thirteen read so I am pleased with that.

Here are April's new arrivals

    1. It's weird how books seem to come in waves of several really good followed by several average. I don't know if it's me or them!

    1. It took most of 2018 to get the numbers right down and now I'm determined to stay on top of the pile!

  5. You are like me, I have no overdue ARCS. I am so anal. Now my own TBR pile..let's not discuss the pile of books I preordered and received on release day that are unread. LOL You had an awesome month. I've got about 13 ARCS pending on NetGalley but none that release before June.

    1. Lol, yes, there's all the books in our spare bedroom because they won't fit on the bookshelf :-/
      But it is a very small bookshelf!
