State of the Arc #2

Happy Saturday, friends! 

Last year I shared my ARCs weekly, but that was starting to feel like a bit much and made me more guilty than motivated to finish anything. I’m hoping a monthly post will be better for me. Therefore, I’ll be trying out State of the ARC, hosted by Avalinah’s Books !😁

I totally missed doing this in February (whoops!!)

Anyhow, let’s see how this month is… 


Feedback Ratio: 81%

468 Approved  |  379 Feedback Sent

So, since January this percentage has gone down by 2! Mostly because I haven’t been reviewing things… but I’m trying to catch up! 
I also need to stop requesting things all the time haha. 


Monthly Update…
