I have decided that I am going to dedicate my November to reading NetGalley approvals, a “NetGalley November” if you will. After seeing my selections for this month, you may say to yourself “but Amanda, some of these books were published months ago…” to which I would replay “why yes, yes they were.”
Boys and girls, I am the perfect example of how NOT to do NetGalley. Back in March when I discovered NetGalley, I did not understand how it all worked. Long story short, I went request happy and dug myself a hole that will take a year to get myself out of. We are talking 75 books people. I refuse to request my account be deleted and start over. I requested these book and in fairness to the publishers and the authors, I am going to read these books! I also realize that I was approved for some amazing books that I’m sure other bloggers were denied… Trust me, I have a lot of guilt over this, so I am trying to make it right. To motivate myself, I have even put a ban on myself from requesting any new ARCs until my NetGalley feedback ratio is at 80%… it is currently sitting at 11%. Wish me luck my friends, I am going to need it!
Here are my book selections for November 2016…
“NetGalley November” TBR:
» The Girls by Emma Cline
» The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
» And I Darken by Kiersten White
» The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
» Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
My Book Club’s November Selection:
» The Book Club Murders by Leslie Nagel
Ok, so cozy mysteries are not my typical reads by any means. This book was selected because the majority of the members of my book club live in Oakwood, Ohio, which is where the author is from and also where the story is set. We shall see how this goes…
Which books are you planning on reading in November?
Have you read any of the books on my TBR? What did you think?
