State of the ARC is a meme hosted by Avalinah’s Books. The idea being to publicly shame ourselves as book bloggers for our paltry progress reading and reviewing all of the ARCs that accumulate. Ok, let’s start by going to NetGalley and seeing how many ARCs total I have listed as approved and not reviewed . . . ah, let’s just skip that. In a
rare common fit of madness, I requested (and received) a truly obscene number of ARCs scheduled for release between September and November. By my count, eleven books (twelve, if you count Some Dark Holler, released on August 28). I got a bunch of those months in advance, which means I could have started reading them in time to actually be ready to keep up with the releases came. Or at least a more responsible blogger could have. I was other occupied this summer.
