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.
Hi everyone! Today I’m really, really excited because this is my first installment… is this the right word? of this meme! I love this idea and I need this, like really, really need this! So here I am, and I hope that this meme would help me get ahead of my ARC pile before it decides to eat me whole!
My Current State of the Arc!

Ok, you can see it for yourself, but I have to state the obvious: that’s not good! I have to write a lot of reviews that are due, and I have a lot of books to read, too. I have a long way to go, but I can do it!
Bricks Knocked Down
This month I have read 2 books and posted the review for one of them. Ok, 50% is not bad, right?! And I DNF one and wrote to the author about that. So I have 2 done and one to go, plus all the other reviews that I have to write, but hey… one step at a time! Anyway, the review of Fire and Bone is the one online, so you may know that I liked it, in the end, even if this book gets me confused a lot. It was a rollercoaster, to be honest. And I hope to write soon about 19 Souls because it was a good thriller, not the best ever, sadly, but not bad and I was hooked up pretty quickly by it.
Also, I wrote a review about one of the ARCs I’ve read in December: Killer Fashion.
Let’s get motivated!
Ok, the next month I really hope to do better and write some review… like the one for 19 Souls and at least an overdue review for one of the books I’ve read some time ago. Also I really hope to read these guys, because I am really excited about them!
I know I’ve said this already, but I am really happy to participate in this meme and I really hope it would help me to keep track of my ARCs, and maybe also help me to be more consistent with them and to defeat the overdue pile!
And… have you ARCs to read? Are you always on time? Or you do like me and let them accumulate on their own???
