I was in dire need of a break from ARCs these past few weeks, but it's time to jump back in the game! I had been reading a lot of discussion posts, advice, and comments from more seasoned bloggers (like here and here) about how we should never take advantage of the system, but it's also OK to cut ourselves some slack when it comes to review copies. I've taken it all to heart and I think a heavy dose of reason combined with the much-needed break has reinvigorated the reviewer in me. And what better way to tackle my pile than a challenge! I am hereby joining:
I've debated quite a bit if I want to focus on my "current" ARCs or my "neglected" ARCs. I am guilty of continually pushing aside my "neglected" ARCs because I'm embarrassed by how long ago the release date was for some of them -- but I'm adopting the philosophy of "better late than never" and also taking to heart feedback from some of my regular followers. So I'm going to mix things up and read whichever of my ARCs strike my fancy and I'm going to try really hard to let go of the guilt -- wish me luck!
