Last year, I discovered Netgalley and might have gone a bit crazy with it. This means I got some arcs that I didn’t really want to read. For example Skulk by Rosie Best was one I haven’t finished since last October (which I probably should let the publishers know I didn’t finish it… does anyone know the protocol for DNF ARCs?)
E-ARCs usually have a time limit to them so I panic and I usually have to force myself to read them. I feel like all I’m thinking about is the time left to read it rather than just enjoying the actual story. A big lesson for me: don’t request books you’re not really really excited for. Otherwise, you will have to suffer through reading them. Looking back now, I realise these e-ARCs could’ve been the reason for my sudden negative attitude in reading. And hence my reading block happened.
Anyways, after finishing Imposter by Susanne Winnacker (which has to be finished by 26th January… erg do you see what I mean?) I’m not gonna impulse request from Netgalley anymore.
Comment below your opinion about ARCs. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
