After some research I did about six months ago when I first started receiving ARCs, I learned that some publishers like it when you post ARC reviews around a month of the book’s release, which is what I’ve observed most bloggers do. I used to do that too.
Then after some more digging around the blogosphere, I read some comments on other posts (this happened a long time ago, so I sadly can’t link the post for you guys to see) where some people including librarians, booksellers, and non-bloggers, prefer it when people post ARC reviews the same week the book is released. They feel like some ARC reviews get posted so early that by the time the book’s release week arrives, they forget all about the book.
That is why I try my best to post ARC reviews on the week the book is released. I can’t always do that since sometimes life gets in the way, but that is my policy now after reading the comments on that particular post (I still hate myself for not saving that post so you guys can look at it too).
My question is, when do you post your ARC reviews? What is your opinion of what I said above? I want to know!
