Wow, May is already here. Does anyone else feel like 2018 is absolutely flying? Maybe it’s because I’m counting down to June. Either way, I really can’t believe it’s already May! Before I get into this, let’s recap what State of the ARC is all […]
Tag: State of the ARC Meme
Well, there goes February...
I’m going to come right out and say it. I’m not happy with my progress this past month. While I did a LOT of work on improving my posts, Bookstagram account, Pinterest boards, and so on, my blogging and book reviews suffered. Luckily, I only have three books that I must read this month as they are to be published. I plan to use this longer month to get caught up on some reviews that have been sitting, and get a bit ahead in my ARC reading.
Just a note in case you haven’t heard of this; the State of the ARC Meme is hosted by AvalinahsBooks. Go check out her website for further information if you’d like to join! It’s a great way to get some motivation to tackle those old ARCs that have been weighing down your TBR stacks.
Are you ready to see the ugly truth? I don’t think I am…
I'm hoping you all know what this gif is from...
If not, then you may be missing out 😛 Anyways, before I share my stats, I wanted to note my ratios and overdue numbers. My Netgalley feedback ration took a few steps up. Last month I was sitting at 53% because I was approval-dumped. This month, it climbed a few rungs up to 55%. My overdue numbers increased by 2 which–it is what it is.
My Edelweiss feedback ratio went down 1% to 39%. Luckily, I didn’t accrue anymore overdues!
Requests I’ve received from authors haven’t changed much. I haven’t been accepting requests for a bit, hoping I’d be able to tackle more of these, but I’ve been a bit behind in general, so I’m just trying to maintain on all platforms. I did end up accepting a new request for an author that I have reviewed for a few times before so I just couldn’t turn her down! My feedback ratio is sitting at 43% and dropped 2% since I took on another ARC. My total overdues have stayed the same.
Lastly, publisher requests have changed a bit. I’m sitting at a 50% feedback ratio, and my overdues have stayed the same.
Upon seeing all of that chaos, my stats don’t look so bad. It’s mainly when I put them all together when the nasty shows. Either way, I’m really hoping that March will prove to be a better month for me. I despise getting behind on things, and that’s all that I’ve felt lately!
At least I was able to get through seven ARCs. I was also reading a lot of other books for the Beat the Backlist Challenge. So, that hasn’t always been helping my stats. But sometimes, it does with older ARCs.
How did your month go for State of the ARC?
