Hey friends! Today I have a State of the ARC meme post.

It’s been a while since I’ve last done an ARC update. I’m both nervous and kind of excited, I know that I started reading a couple of ARCs a couple of months ago, but since then I’ve honestly had no will to continue and finish them. Continue reading

Hello! Welome to my eighth (8th) State of the ARC meme post! I was especially excited about September since September, in my mind, launches the start of so many new beginnings. Maybe because grade-school in Canada starts in September. Which means reconnecting with old friends, and starting new friendships!

Yes, I was pretty excited about September this year, haha.

My one and only goal for September, ARC-wise, was to get my Netgalley Feedback Ratio (FBR) up to 65%. I ended August with a 61% FBR, and just wasn’t satisfied with that. So let’s see how I did this month!

Forward, my friends! Continue reading

State of the ARC #6 | July ’18

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!

I told myself that I wouldn’t request any arcs this month… I already have enough to last me a long while, and believe me, I am working on it. This ARC pile I have is continuing work in progress. Yet there are too many interesting books out there! Too many! ..So I ended up requesting a few books. The ARCs I happily received this May are:

February was an exceptionally good reading month for me. I was hoping that march would be a similar month for me ARC wise. Yet March proved to be the exact opposite of what I hoped it’d be. Which I am laughing about now since I wanted to have another good reading month. I guess it wasn’t in the pages for me! (See what I did there?) Continue reading
