State of the ARC [31]

State of the ARC is a monthly meme hosted by Avalinah at Avalinah's Books! It's an opportunity for readers to catch up on their long overdue ARCs, but right now I'm using it to keep up with my upcoming ARCs instead. It helps me stay organized! Edit: State of the ARC is currently being hosted by Sarah (All the Book Blog Names Are Taken) while Evelina is on hiatus.

*there's conflicting information about this book's release date

So June REALLY snuck up on me! πŸ˜… I'm going to be behind all month! Are any of these on your TBR? What do you think of my ever-expanding list of books to read? I'm honestly finding it a tad overwhelming right now, and should probably slow it down on the requests. It's just so hard not to click on them when they pop up...


  1. June 1 was a monster. I hope you can make a dent by the end of the month. Good luck!

    1. IT WAS! SO MANY JUNE 1ST RELAESES! 😰 I've been getting back on track, so I should be caught up by the end of the month. *fingers crossed*

  2. One Last Stop is one I've had my eye for awhile!

    1. I loved Red, White & Royal Blue, so I have high expectations for this one!

  3. I'm cringing because I haven't got to One Last Stop yet and I never let ARC's go past release date without reviewing. But it'll probably be another couple weeks before I can get to it. Oops!

    1. LOL. Ummm, well. I've let a LOT of June ARCs slip by without reviewing them, so I'll be playing catch up all month. πŸ˜… I hope we both love One Last Stop!

  4. You have a lot of great-looking ARCs lined up! I'm especially looking forward to Blood LIke Magic and You've Reached Sam!

    1. I want to read them alllll, but I know I'm not going to be able to get to every single one before their pub dates.
