We’ve all been there.
You’re happily reading a review of a book you are interested in, then all of a sudden you encounter a word you have never seen before.
So I made this list specially for you!
Let’s get on to the slang!
TBR: To Be Read. Usually this refers to the list/pile of books people still need to read. (These lists tend to be never-ending!)
ARC: Advanced Reader Copy. This is a digital/physical copy of a book gifted to readers to read and review before the release date of the book. Some of the most popular sites to find ARCs include Netgalley, Edelweiss or Booksirens!
DNF: Did Not Finish. Readers usually use this when they give up on a book and decide to not finish it, due to it not being enjoyable for them. Some people DNF a lot, some people rarely give up on a book, it depends from reader to reader!
RTC: Review To Come. Reader’s usually say this when they have finished the book and their review is yet to come.
Ship: When you ship two people, it means that you think they should be together romantically. There are many ships out there that don’t exist in the actual books!
YA/MG/NA: Young Adult, Middle Grade, New Adult. These are a few of the different age groups books are aimed at.
Book Tour: A promotional event arranged to expose a book to readers.
WIP: Work In Progress. A manuscript an author is currently working on.
MC: Main Character. The protagonist(s) of the story.
I hope you learned something new today! Put your new knowledge to good use and happy reading!❤
Till we meet again
