The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme that runs from Friday to Thursday in which bloggers answers a book-related prompt. It’s a great way to provide some insight into yourself and introduce yourself to some great new blogs.
I use Netgalley, mainly because I keep forgetting Edelweiss even exists. However, I’ve recently decided to hold off on requesting ARCs, unless it’s a book I’m actively anticipating. Why? Because I have way too many ARCs and not enough time to read and review them.
It’s a little bittersweet, because I usually get approved for books on Netgalley. It’s hard to let that go. But I have to think about my scary-long TBR and give myself a break.

This post was really short, so I feel like I should add something. I know! How about the “Welcome to the Black Parade” music video?
Much better. So, where do you get your ARCs from? Do you get any? How do you feel about ARCs? Let’s have a discussion in the comments!

I haven’t requested any ARCs (yet), cause I think it’d just add pressure to my reading and blogging. Since I’m a big mood reader and deadlines make me want to hide, I’m probably making the right decision. Plus I’m an international blogger and based on what I’ve seen on Twitter that’s not ideal.
Congrats on finding the superior way to end a post. And thanks for sharing my post!
Haha! Thanks! Yeah, international readers/bloggers/reviewers really get the short stick when it comes to ARCs. I wish there was a way to ensure ARCs are evenly distributed.
For me, ARCs aren’t my favorite because of the deadlines and the time limit you have to read and review the book. It makes me feel forced, but it just depends the kind of reader and reviewer you are.
I’ve come to agree with this. I’m a mood reader and I didn’t realize how much pressure it is to read and review ARCs before they’re released.
