Follow-Up to “Do ARCs Make You Important?”

I wanted to do a follow-up to my post a few days ago titled “Do ARCs Make You Important”. I shared that post on my Instagram account and received a fairly substantial amount of feedback via comments and DMs. I thought it would be cool to share some of this because conversation is important and this feedback gives that post some dimension; it’s not just me talking AT you. I will be sharing quotes and bits and pieces of all of the feedback because I’m ok that it’s known that some supported me and some were quite upset with me. That is ok. That is what makes us all unique and wonderful and beautiful.

Do ARCs Make You Important?

I have really been wanting to dive into this topic for awhile now. There’s lots of talk about ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) on Instagram and Twitter. ARCs are an uncorrected copy of a book that a publisher or author sends you BEFORE the publish date. This means you get to read the book, and hopefully review, before everyone else gets their hands on it.

My February 2020 TBR

It’s that time again where we pick our books to read for the next month. I don’t know about you, but it’s really hard to choose a reasonable list for one month. I do it because it’s fun, but I also know that it usually changes. I get super distracted by new books coming out- don’t we all? I am really truly going to try to stick to this list because they are all supposed to be amazing books, but I do have some ARCs coming that may push one or two of these out of the way. We will see! I’ll give a brief list below of my reasoning for each. Be sure to leave a comment with your list or if you’ve read or plan to read any on my list!
