E-Arc Haul

Guys, Edelweiss has never been a great source of ebooks to me.  Both Mireille and I have been denied over and over for months – to the point where we had mostly given up.  We kept an eye on it for the stuff you could download for free without getting approved, since we never got approved.  Well. they seem to have changed their system because a lot of reviewers suddenly starting getting approved on the platform! Also, a massive change was Macmillian started letting Canadians request on the platform – before we couldn’t, so that was very exciting! At some point we’ll likely to a post on our experiences with both Netgalley and Edelweiss with tips and stuff but we are still a little new at it – especially with Edelweiss.

Anyway, I now have gone down the rabbit hole of e-arcs and am drowning lol Will I get them all done in time? Well, not all of them.  A couple are coming out really soon and a couple are backlist titles.  I’m super excited about a lot of these! All of these were obtained on Edelweiss. Enough jibber jabber, let’s get into the haul!

Ok, I know I said in my rant review of The Cabin by Natasha Preston, that I was beyond done with this author.  Then how did I end up with another book by her you might wonder? I requested this book forever ago, kind of forgot about it – I actually read The Cabin AFTER I had requested this book, so now I am in a pickle.  Do I try and read this one for fun and possibly have another rant review on my hands or do I just let it go? We shall see LOL

Like I said, I’m down the damn rabbit hole with arcs now and I’m not sure there is any help for me at this point. I’m not even going to bother trying to send up an SOS, it’s much too late for that – wish me luck!

Are any of these on your TBR or have you read any? What has your experience been with Edelweiss? Let me know below!!

  1. That’s actually less than I thought you’d have. I think we both got 4 of the same ones. (It’s sad that I can’t remember which ones I got recently.) And I already had a few of those from the publisher. I hope you end up loving everything!


  2. I’ve never actually used Edelweiss because I heard it was so hard to get approved for anything but I may just have to look into it. Netgalley on the other hand well, that’s just dangerous haha although I’ve not been to bad of late. I’d love to hear your thoughts on Gideon the Ninth, I’ve been eyeing that one up.

  3. *whistles* That’s an impressive eARC haul! I’ve always had horrible luck with EW, too, and I actually gave up requesting anything, because I was either flat-out rejected or told to request on NG. I’ve got a few things over there releasing at the end of the year, but they were To Download, which is where I spend most of my time now.

    I’m drooling over some of these, which I’ve had my eye on, like Gideon the Ninth and The GIrl The Sea Gave Back. I haven’t heard of some of these, but I’ll be checking them out. I might just have to give EW a second chance, too (though my blog is a teensy pip of a thing, so maybe I won’t have any luck with them either way lol).

    Good luck getting through all your ARCs!



    Congrats on being able to request/be approved for more! EW has definitely been a less approval friendly site in the past, even for a US person like me. Hopefully these turn out to be good reads for you. 🙂


  5. Congratulations on joining the EW+ rabbit hole! It is very deep. I’m a bit behind on my reviews and need to step it up. Some of the books you received look amazing. 😧
