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 people! How are you? And how are your reading going? June was a lucky month for me and I hope that July would live up to expectations, too! I am particularly satisfied with myself this month because I managed to do quite good with my ARCs. As always, I could have done better (namely: I could have stopped the requests on NetGalley. I may be a NetGalleyaholic and I would try to work on it in July, I promise!). I really did a good job, if I can say so myself, but my Stats aren’t good yet, so I would keep the Box of Shame for some time, still.
My Current State of the Arc!

Bricks Knocked Down
This month I read a lot of ARCs, for my standard. Usually, I read 3 of them every month, given or taken, but this month I did good (I know, I said this at least a million times, I know, but it’s just that I am so happy about it!!!!). But back on tracks! I’ve read a total of 10 ARCs. Truth be told, one of them, Perfect World, was a manga and two of them were really quick reading, A Huntsman’s Fate prequel and A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns, but those are just details! I also loved most of them and liked all the others, so yay again!
I loved Even Money by Alessandra Torre, and I need the sequel right now, and The Great Hearts by David Oliver (I’ll write a review for this one as soon as I can, promise!), Rise and Run by RJ Plant, this was a great surprise, and We ride the storm by Devin Madson, and Redemption’s Blade by Adrian Tchaikovsky!
But I haven’t just done great with the reading parts! I managed to write some reviews, too! I wrote a review for some of the books I have read this month, but also some reviews that were overdue or for books that I have read previously! I wrote a total of 7 reviews: 2 overdue and 5 for books that I have read this month. And I hope to write some other reviews in July! I won’t post as much as in June because in July I would go on vacation for two weeks, but I hope to manage to post at least some of them!!!!
Let’s get motivated!
I don’t know what would I read in the next month, because I am quite in a moody mood, if this makes sense for you, but I really hope to read these three books! But more than get some reading done, I hope to manage to write a lot of reviews. A girl can hope, right???
And that’s all, folk! I hope to come back the next month with this meme and feel proud of myself!
And now it’s up to you! How was your month, ARCs wise? And do you participate in this wonderful meme? And… did you know the books mentioned above? Let me know!
