State of the ARC #12: how did June compare to miserable May?

My current State of the ARC…


May’s Progress…


Since my May State of the ARC, I have completed review copies! Yikes…

I also DNFed 3 review copies:

In Progress:

Right now, I have 15 review copies in progress.


I also acquired 33 new review copies (18 physical, 15 digital). I have completed 0 of the new additions. I wish I’d completed some of them, but honestly, I’m simply IMMENSELY relieved that this number is so much lower than it has been the last few months. For reference, I hauled 36 each in January & February, 43 in March, 47 in April, and 50 in May — so, I’d say my ARC ban (which only started in mid-June) is already making a huge difference

    1. I’m really interested in your thoughts on the kingdom!

    1. I hope your ARC ban helps! I’ve been having a much easier time since I stopped requesting ARCs so I can focus on catching up with my overdue ones as well as focusing more on my owned books. It’s also such a relief in terms of pressure.

      1. Thank you, love! I sadly failed pretty hard at the ban but I’m getting back to it this week and have some new ideas to help myself stick to it that I think will really help. Fingers crossed! I can only imagine how relieving it must be to be able to just relax and read what you want instead of freaking out over ARCs like I have been for the last while. 🙁 I did this to myself, I know, but sheesh.
