Tired of scrounging the web for places that actually list interesting looking arcs that aren’t of just one genre that you don’t read? Don’t want to browse through Netgalley for the hundredth time searching for something to read? Then you’ve definitely come to the right post! Now a lot of these books aren’t as good as the bestsellers that would typically be on Netgalley or Edelweiss. So keep that in mind as you browse through these places.
Top 5 Places to Get ARCs:
*simply click the name of the place, and it should take you right to their website*
1. Book Sirens= a great place to request books, and they also have detailed graphics and charts of what kind of reader and how much of a reader you are. They also give you a helpful reading charts/status page on your profile that I find very cool.
2.Hidden Gems=an insane amount of romance novels are on here, but there’s also other genres that are available as well on occasion. This is a more ‘first come first served’ kind of thing tbh, you put in your request, but you don’t always get selected for the book you get, though I’ve had insanely good luck with most of my requests, though they send arcs through email as well.
3.Booksprout=yet another heavily romance genre arc place, but it also contains a good bit of fantasy, science fiction, and ya as well. I rarely frequent this place, but I definitely still check in at least twice a month to see what might be available from favorite authors..
4.Booksends=I literally just found this place, so I’m still testing it out. But it seems as though this is another one that you sign up by email, they send you links to arcs, and you select which ones you want. They provide mobi files for kindle, it appears, which is what I generally use anyway.
5.BookPerks=this isn’t an arc place, but it does send you some rather nice bestsellers and new releases that are generally discounted towards less than five dollars. Therefore, sorry I’m cheating with this one, but I felt it worth mentioning for those who are looking to save some cash.
If y’all could spread this list around, help share these sites so that others might be able to find it, that would be awesome. I get that there’s probably been a lot of these helpful recommendation lists for finding arcs, but almost every last one of them has recommended Netgalley and/or Edelweiss as the main place. This should be far more helpful than mentioning the same two old places that most people may already know about.
As such, I do hope y’all found this to be a helpful list. Let me know what you thought of it in the comments! And if any of the links don’t work, please don’t hesitate in letting me know! I’m slowly getting used to linking, lol.
Until next time,
