End of the Year ARC Check In

Okay so 2020 is just about over. Here’s how my ARC reading went….

This year was a trash fire all around. And that vibe definitely bled into my ARC habits 🙈 I really fell behind this year and one of my top reading goals in 2021 is to clean up this horrendous mess.

Here’s where we’re at –

Total ARCS Read in 2020: 57

⏰ – Late
📖 – Physical Copy
✏️ – Reviewed
✨ – New


Start of 2020: 19

End of 2020: 44
Current Feedback Ratio: 54%

…. So I more than doubled my ARC collection in 2020. And of the 44 books on this list – 21 of them are late ARCs. Which is awful. This is why a top goal of mine is to clear out my “late reviews”.
