June 18th: Do you think Advanced Reading Copies are worth it?

I guess yes and no. I love getting an ARC and getting to read it sooner. I am so bad at waiting. And they do create good buzz too!

But I would love to get a book just as much after it has been published and give it as much love.

Any book I choose to read is a good book (well hopefully).

Ack so short again! But that is all I have to say :)

  1. I agree - ARCs can create buzz before a book is published. I think book sellers use them to decide if they want to order a book or not.

    1. Some do get buzz before they are even out as arcs too, buzz is crazy at times

  2. Yes & no for me too. It's fun to get them in the mail, but then there's added pressure to get them reviewed near the release date.

    1. I never get surprise ones so that is not a worry for me ;)

  3. I've started reviewing even my arc's a little later - about a week after publication. i used to do it a little early but they already get so much early attention and it helps keep the book out there.

    1. That is a good idea, and I so do not liek when people review 2 months before, that is just cruel

  4. I only request a few each month so I don't feel pressured. I usually stick with authors or series that I already liked but sometimes I find a book that I really want to read.

  5. I agree. I do love to get books no matter what but I do love ARCs when it is a series I enjoy!

  6. I think arcs fill a need for reviewers and early readers alike they do cause a buzz. I do prefer mine in digital now though. Great topic

  7. Yes and mainly no these days, I hate the pressure of having to review it. But still they're kinda nice!

    1. I never get that many so I never worry, but when I got more then it was stressful

  8. I do think arcs help generate interest and sometimes I'll take on a book I wouldn't normally if it's offered. :)

  9. I enjoy ARCs and when I fall in love with the book I like to buy a copy and have both sitting on my shelf. But sometimes they do sit there, staring at me, pressuring me to read them on time when I'm busy. So...yes and no. ;)

  10. If I get them as surprises, I like that b/c there aren't too many like that and I never feel pressured to read them for the release date, but only when I have time and interest.

    The ones I do request tend to come as eARCS and I try to read them around the release date, but don't worry if I do take a few extra weeks when I'm not in the mood at the time.
    I don't get any audio ARCs so those are always no-pressure listens.
    So, I guess I don't mind ARCs no matter how I get them. :)

    1. Same, surprises are surprises and not counted in what to read so they will get the time they need

      Delete
  11. I'm the same way. I still love getting ARCs, but these days I find it harder to read something far in advance. But it's nice to have that choice with books I'm super excited about :)

  12. I do love getting ARCs of books I want to read so I can post a review around release date. But lately I've been falling further and further behind.

  13. I really appreciate that authors and publishers give me free copies. Really helps me stay in budget. I don't get many eARC and even less print ARCs, but I get a ton from audiobook publishers.

    1. I could not buy as many as this. I would be mostly library based so I am really thankful too
