WHAT’S THE FIRST ARC YOU EVER RECEIVED?

My very first ARC was in 2013, when I won my first Goodreads giveaway! It was Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler. I gave it 3 stars. I have not won a GR giveaway in over 3 years now. :-/

Afterparty

Crystal Kingdom by Amanda Hocking- 4 stars

ULTIMATE QUESTION: TO DNF OR NOT DNF AN ARC?

I will always finish an ARC. Even if it’s killing me and it’s hard to get through. I requested it and I feel that it’s my obligation to finish it. I’ve had some difficult ones over the years but always feel good when I’ve made it through.

NAME AN ARC YOU DNFED AND AN ARC YOU COULD NEVER DNF.

I always finish books. I’ll post one that I didn’t like at all.. then one I loved. 🙂

All the Little Lights

I gave this one 2 stars. I had such high hopes because there’s other books I love by this author. I disliked this one a lot.

A Man Called Ove

5 STARS!! I could never not finish this book. It’s so amazing! ❤

WHAT ARC DID YOU GO OUT AND BUY A FINISHED COPY OF AFTER?

Ohhh.. there’s a few…

A Man Called OveBeartown (Beartown, #1)Geekerella

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)

WHICH MEDIUM DO YOU GET MOST OF YOUR ARCS IN? (PHYSICAL/EBOOK/AUDIO)

I get 99% in ebook format. I’ve received like 7 in physical copies when I won Goodreads giveaways!

GIVE BLOGGERS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE REGARDING ARCS (REQUESTING/REVIEWING).

Don’t go crazy requesting! I know it can be hard. When I first started my Netgalley account, I just requested so much and became overwhelmed. I try not to request too many, if I know that I will not have time to read them all. For example, if you have a big project or something huge coming up in your personal life. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Be picky! Only request books that you know the author or think you will really enjoy. It’s always hard to read books when you have no interest in them. Just have fun. ❤


For the sake of catching up, I’m not tagging YOU! Yep, I’m taking the lazy way out. If you feel like doing this one, please do! It’s fun to look back. 🙂

  1. Oooooh, Leslie, your answers were so much fun to read! 🙂 I have done the purchase ARCs before as well – with Geekerella being one as well. And omg, SAME about Goodreads giveaways. I used to have so much better luck at them. I think I won one…maybe about a year or two ago? But since then, silence. XD Maybe now that we talked about it, our luck will become better? XD Thank you for doing the tag, and great post!! 🙂

  2. Haha I love your advice, I feel like everyone says that about NetGally! The first time I learned about NetGally it was someone telling how overwhelmed they were with all their requests being accepted at once. Then I saw lots of other people struggling with the same thing. I was so afraid to request ARCs and mess my self up that for the longest time I only requested “Read now” books and I would only do them one at a time 😂😂 I was probably way too cautious, but better safe than sorry!
