I saw this tag on A Court of Books and Love and I thought it would be a great tag to start March off with since I have so many ARCs to tackle this month. This tag was originally created by Book Princess Reviews.
What’s the First ARC You Ever Received?
The first ARC I received was Bring Me Home by Bree Howland. I received the ARC from the author when I signed up to be part of the blog tour. This was a super exciting moment for me because it was my first ARC and my first blog tour, and it felt like a huge step in my blogging adventure.
What ARC Would You Sell Your Soul For?
Right now, I would sell my soul for an ARC of Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston. I loved Geekerella and The Princess and the Fangirl, and I can’t wait until I get my hands on Bookish and the Beast. I did send a request on NetGalley for this book, so fingers crossed that I get lucky.

Ultimate Question: To DNF Or Not to DNF an ARC?
I’m still relatively new to the world of ARCs, and so far, I haven’t run into any that I wanted to DNF. Generally speaking, I don’t mind DNFing books, so I think if I ran into an ARC, I wasn’t enjoying, I would reach out to the publisher and apologize and tell them that I’m not finishing it.
Name an Arc You DNF’d And an ARC You Could Never DNF.
As stated in my previous answer, I haven’t run into any ARCs that I wanted to DNF yet. One ARC that I could never DNF was Tweet Cute by Emma Lord. I loved everything about this book, and it was my first five-star read of 2020.
What ARC Did You Go Out and Buy A Finished Copy of After?
I went out and purchased a copy of Tweet Cute by Emma Lord and Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon. I loved both of these books, and I wanted to support the author and add them to my collection.
Which Medium Do You Get Most of Your ARCs In? (Physical / Ebook / Audio)
I get almost all my ARCs as eARCs from NetGalley. I don’t know how to go about getting physical ARCs from Publishers, but I don’t mind because eARCS take up a lot less space.
Give Bloggers One Piece of Advice Regarding ARCs (Receiving / Reviewing).
My one piece of advice when it comes to receiving ARCs is that it doesn’t hurt to hit the request button on NetGalley. You’re going to get rejected sometimes, and it’s disappointing, but if you don’t ask, you definitely won’t get the book. Just be careful and don’t go too crazy, because it’s easy to end up flooded and overwhelmed by all the ARCs coming in.
