State of the ARC wrap up

State of The ARC – March Wrap up

I stared a new series TBR series in 2022, one is my State of the ARC posts. I will do two posts a month; a State of the ARC TBR post and a State of the ARC Wrap up post.

These State of the ARC posts are to keep me accountable on all the ARCs I am so privileged to receive. I want to get that Netgalley rating back up to the coveted 80% as well as tell you all about some of the amazing books that are coming out each month.

This is my monthly Wrap up, its aim is to see if I read and reviewed the books on my list, how many new ARCs I received and if I managed to bump up that Netgalley percentage in any way.

On the 1st of March 2022 my Netgalley percentage was 56%

Net Galley Percentage

At the End of the Month my Netgalley Percentage is:

56 %

I read and reviewed :

7 ARCs

I was accepted to read:

8 New ARCs

That is a net of -1!

I also have 2 arcs that I am still reading and hopefully I can finish them in the next few days! Maybe nibbling a little more off the percentage. One of the ARCs I was due to read was also shifted to a blog tour spot for April so that eased my TBR a little. April is also a somewhat quiet month for ARCs for me so I will hopefully be able to clear a bit of my back log too!

My Review

The City of Dusk
Tara Sim

eARC
Release Date: 22/3/22

About the book:

The Four Realms—Life, Death, Light, and Darkness—all converge on the city of dusk. For each realm there is a god, and for each god there is an heir.
But the gods have withdrawn their favor from the once vibrant and thriving city. And without it, all the realms are dying.
Unwilling to stand by and watch the destruction, the four heirs—Risha, a necromancer struggling to keep the peace; Angelica, an elementalist with her eyes set on the throne; Taesia, a shadow-wielding rogue with rebellion in her heart; and Nik, a soldier who struggles to see the light— will sacrifice everything to save the city.
But their defiance will cost them dearly.

Wild and Wicked Things
Francessca May

eARC/AudioARC
Release Date: 29/3/22

About the book:

In the aftermath of World War I, a naïve woman is swept into a glittering world filled with dark magic, romance, and murder in this lush and decadent debut.
On Crow Island, people whisper, real magic lurks just below the surface.
Neither real magic nor faux magic interests Annie Mason. Not after it stole her future. She’s only on the island to settle her late father’s estate and, hopefully, reconnect with her long-absent best friend, Beatrice, who fled their dreary lives for a more glamorous one.
Yet Crow Island is brimming with temptation, and the biggest one may be her enigmatic new neighbour.
Mysterious and alluring, Emmeline Delacroix is a figure shadowed by rumours of witchcraft. And when Annie witnesses a confrontation between Bea and Emmeline at one of the island’s extravagant parties, she is drawn into a glittering, haunted world. A world where the boundaries of wickedness are tested, and the cost of illicit magic might be death.
