Today, I feel like voicing my opinions and thoughts, and start a discussion with you all.
If you've been on Twitter, you may have seen some drama surrounding ARCs pop up on your feed. While I'm not here to talk specifically about that one issue, I am here to discuss my thoughts on ARCs in general, and how the book and blogger community should handle them.
Firstly, for those who don't know, ARCs are Advance Reader Copies, sent out to various reviewers well before a book is released. They are usually uncorrected proofs, with mistakes and maybe some elements missing (like illustrations, etc.). They allow books to receive early reviews to hype up the release.
