I’ve been trying to curtail my greed when it comes to requesting digital ARCs. I have SO many review commitments that I fear I’m not doing them justice by posting my reviews way after the publication date.
So… for the entire month of August 2019 I have added only FIVE more review commitments.
Here is my current NetGalley feedback ratio:
Three from NetGalley:
“The Fortune Teller’s Promise” by Kelly Heard
Published this coming October by Bookouture, the blurb is what attracted me to this title from a ‘new-to-me’ author.
“The Truth Behind the Lie” by Sara Lövestam
Published August 2019 by Minotaur Books, the blurb had me hooked… though I’ve never read anything by this author before.
“Woman in the Water” by Katerina Diamond
This one is due to be published in November 2019. Published by Avon, it was the blurb that attracted me.
And two from Edelweiss:
“The Boatman: and other stories” by Billy O’Callaghan
Published by Harper, I requested this short story collection when I saw it was written by Billy O’Callaghan. I read one of his novels, “The Dead House” last year and really enjoyed his writing.
“The Woman in the Park” by Teresa Sorkin and Tullan Holmqvist
This thriller is published by Beaufort Books and it was the blurb that interested me enough to request it. I’ve never read anything by these authors before.
So, that’s IT for AUGUST 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 TEN new purchases from Amazon.ca
My total expenditure was only $ 14.11 Cdn. Not bad for TEN titles. I can never resist a bargain. LOL
How was YOUR month of August? Any wonderful acquisitions added to your TBR?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
Note: I scheduled this post in advance as I underwent major surgery on Aug. 27th and will be in hospital for a week. I may be very tardy when it comes to responding to comments. Please forgive me.
