I admit that I’m a real ‘greedy guts’ when it comes to books. I collect them in both paper and ebook format. I love to have a stash of unread titles that provide me with untold pleasure in the form of anticipation.
That being said, I have been attempting to curtail my acquisitions. Why? Well… I have 195 outstanding review commitments.
See my Goodreads shelves:
So… for the entire month of July 2019 I have added only FIVE more review commitments.
Four from NetGalley:
I received “The Beach at Doonshean” by Penny Feeny from Head of Zeus via NetGalley in order that I can participate in their blog tour on August 26th.
I received “Gretchen” by Shannon Kirk from Thomas and Mercer who have granted me pre-approval for all of their titles on NetGalley.
I received “Silent Night” by Geraldine Hogan from Bookouture after being invited to read this title by the author.
I received “Black Rock Bay” by Brianna Labuskes from Thomas and Mercer who have granted me pre-approval for all of their titles on NetGalley.
And from Edelweiss, I received approval for one title:
“The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae” by Stephanie Butland published by St. Martin’s Griffin.
Curiously, I was declined for this title some time ago, and suddenly, it was available for download. I cannot imagine why…
So, that’s IT for JULY as far as review commitments go. Well done me! (when you are as greedy as I am, five new titles in a month shows great restraint LOL)
I did however complete SIX new purchases from Amazon.ca :
The three titles in this set include:
I missed out on “Secrets of Willow House” by Susanne O’Leary when it was offered on NetGalley so I was delighted to buy it in Kindle format for only $3.99.
“The Lady” by Judy Higgins was on offer for only $1.29
“The Ghost Tree” by Barbara Erskine was on offer for only $ 1.99
“Watch Her Die” by Deborah Lucy was on offer for just .99¢
“Bridles Lane” by Johanna Craven was FREE so this purchase was a no-brainer. LOL
How was YOUR month of July? Any wonderful acquisitions added to your TBR?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
