ARC Reading Pile: The Definitive List

My policy: I review ARC's mostly in order of publication date. Sometimes this has to change for various reasons.

Also for the ultra-observant, if a book mid-way down the list disappears, it means it's headed to one of my fantastic reviewers for review. Occasionally books don't get reviewed because for whatever reason I didn't get on with them. 

This is a non-picture post for reference only (I don't think many people will read it, but its good for me to keep this list updated )

Just out of curiosity - what does ARC stand for?

Advanced REader Copy. Mostly they are just a copy of the book in its published form. I try and get them before the release (and can sometimes review them before the release), but sometimes get them jsut after.

Sometimes I get a proof copy which is like the last copy before it goes to final publication. The covers are simple, illustrations are often missing and there may be the odd thing in the manuscript. Those are really cool. I don't let those out of my sight!
