State of the ARC: August 2020

State of the ARC is a monthly meme at Avalinah’s Books (temporarily hosted at All The Book Blog Names Are Taken) 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:

  • 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.
  • Include the link to this post, or the current State of the ARC post. You can use my State of the ARC image too.
  • Don’t forget to visit all the other people in the link-up and comment.
  • And most importantly – have fun!

I think that July ended up going better than expected for ARCs! It might have been a pretty slow reading month for me, but at least most of what I read was ARCs!

My goal for August is to read the one ARC I have that comes out in September plus at least two of my past due ARCs.

    AH! I’m jealous you have the new Emma Lord book. Tweet Cute was one of the cutest things I’ve read al year. Can’t wait to see what you think 😊. I like this meme, I’ll probably start doing it once I start to collect more ARCs!
