STATE OF THE ARC MEME
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). You can track your reading progress and link up with your own post. Most commonly it comes out on the 30th of every month.
Hello and welcome to another State of the ARC meme! This is my 6th time participating and I’m glad to say that by joining along in this monthly meme, my feedback ratio on Netgalley has slowly but surely gone up!
My goal for July, ARC wise, was to read at least 6 Advanced Reader Copies. Doing so would have made my feedback ratio percentage on NetGalley rise to 60(ish)%. Last month I didn’t request any books, which helped me raise my percentage a bit!
Another goal I wanted to have this month, was to have less DNF’d books than the ones I finished. Enough dilly-dallying though, let’s get into it!
The ARC’s I received this month were:
- Harbinger by Emme DeWitt; What interests me the most about Harbringer is that the main character is a banshee. I’m actually seriously intrigued and a little frightened by the cover for Harbinger. I wonder what will happen! (This one was a READ NOW)
- The Shadow Minds Journal by Kia Carrington-Russell; There were mentionings of shadow-beings in the books’ synopsis, so obviously I had to download it!! (This one was a read now)
- Era of Undying by Emilie Knight; The author approached me and since the synopsis is so interesting I thought I’d give this one a go! I’m actually pretty excited about Era of Undying.
- Seventh Born by Monica Sanz; I’m extremely curious about Seventh Born because the title is something I’ve actually always been curious about ever since I watched a movie as a young’n. The seventh child of a seventh child in my mind, always holds some sort of power. Hopefully that’s the case with Seventh Born!
