State of the ARC #7 – February

This is my first time participating in this meme, so let’s go ♪(┌・。・)┌ It’s not gonna be really fancy because I’m still getting used to this, but maybe I’ll figure out how to make it fancier later.

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.

Rules of State of the ARC:

  1. Mention that you’re linking up with State of the ARC @ AvalinahsBooks, which is a fun way to share our ARC progress, challenges, wins, woes and mishaps.
  2. Include the link to this post, or the current State of the ARC post. Y
  3. Don’t forget to visit all the other people in the link-up and comment.
  4. And most importantly – have fun!

Let’s start! First, I would like to happily announce that I am actually caught up on NetGalley – my next ARC comes out on the 13th on March, so plenty of time to read it. (The same can’t be said for my non-NetGalley ARCs… but hey, progress.)

My current NetGalley feedback ratio is: 67% (woooh! I really want to reach 80, but this is still pretty good)

Total NetGalley ARCs received in February: 5
Total NetGalley ARCs read in February: 10
Total author ARCs read in February: 0 :(((

(I also have two requests pending on NetGalley…)

38108325Favourite ARC this month: The Queen of Ieflaria by Effie Calvin

5 stars: Starlings by Jo Walton; DROPKICKromance by Cyrus Parker (2 + 1)

4 stars: Time Will Tell by M. Ullrich; Changing Loyalties by Nicole Field; Hearts Like Hers by Melissa Brayden; Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen (4)

3 stars: Remembering Majyk by Valia Lind; Embrace by Megan Derr; the witch doesn’t burn in this one by Amanda Lovelace; (3)

Did Not Finish: Aerie by Jon Keys (1)

Overall, this was a good month – 3 books rated 5 stars, and 4 books rated 4 stars out of 10 is pretty good, right? February was also a true ARC-reading month for me because I don’t think I really read anything else other than these (which is why I might not even make a separate wrap-up post, honestly).

Current number of ARCs:

  • NetGalley: 9
  • Author: 4

March is also IndieAthon, but hopefully all of my ARCs are indie so they’ll fit into the theme nicely~

How many books did you read this month? Also, are you participating in IndieAthon next month?
