Welcome to yet another installment of State of the ARC meme. Though I was not able to stop myself from requesting new ARCs, I am happy that I actually managed to read a few ARCs this month. So without further ado, let’s get to the business 😀
Current state of the ARC
If you can notice, I certainly have made some progress right? The big number change in NetGalley overdue arcs is because I sent feedback for almost 10 books I am not more interested. And trust me, it felt good 😀 Since I joined Edelweiss too, the number is quite increased (like 1%? ), but I am quite selective for Edelweiss and anyways most of the time I get rejected 😀
Bricks Knocked Down
okay, so I read 4 NetGalley ARCs and 3 of those were backlist and one was 2018 release. Also, I finished 2 review copies.
The Marriage Pact was my first read of the year and it was quite good. I really enjoyed it. Breaking Up is Hard to do was another fun and light-hearted read. Meet Zippy was actually a review copy and it was a children’s book.
In the works
I am yet to review all these three books. Kartikeya was a review copy but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected. Spin the Golden Light Bulb was an awesome middle-grade and I am glad I read it. 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank was the longest graphic novel that I ever read. It was good overall.
I am currently reading The Upside of Falling Down and quite enjoying it so far. The main character is amnesic and I just hoping for her memory to come back. I want to see what will become of her after that 😛
Let’s get motivated
There are actually 4 NetGalley ARCs on my TBR list that I going to release this month. But I know I can’t read all of those. I also need to read a few review copies. I am hoping to read at least 4 of these.
That’s my State of the ARC in February.
