I’ve been trying to request fewer titles each month in an effort to get a handle on my TBR and review commitments. I’m proud of myself this month as I only added FOUR more review commitments. There are just SO many wonderful titles available right now on NetGalley and Edelweiss that the temptation is great.
Here is my current NetGalley feedback ratio
(as you can see, I’m still teetering right at the 80% mark so I don’t dare get any more titles from NetGalley until I have a bit of a cushion. Having worked so hard to get the 80% badge, I refuse to lose it again…)
Notice that I reviewed two and got two more so essentially I’m just maintaining/ treading water. LOL
This should change next month as I plan to have a “Nothing But NetGalley” November.
Two that I got this month from NetGalley:
“Strangers at the Gate” by Catriona McPherson
“The Tenant” by Katrine Engberg
And two from Edelweiss:
“The Love Story of Missy Carmichael” by Beth Morrey
“The Woman in the Mirror” by Rebecca James
So, only FOUR more review commitments in OCTOBER.
But, being a weak bookworm…. I also purchased TEN new Kindle books from Amazon.ca in October (no self control…)
total expenditure = $ 23.91 Cdn. (not bad for 10 books!)
“Why She Ran” by Geraldine Hogan
(some of you might know her as Faith Hogan)
I thoroughly enjoyed her last book so was very excited to see this new one coming out on December 19th published by Bookouture.
If you’re interested, you can read my review of her last book, “Her Sister’s Bones“.
“Christmas at the Edge of the World” by Kate Hewitt
Kate Hewitt has been a favourite author of mine ever since I read her “Rainy Day Sisters“. (my review here)
This short Christmas novel is set in the Orkney islands in northern Scotland. “Christmas at the Edge of the World” is published by Tule Publishing and is out on November 4th.
I purchased this one after reading Carla’s review.
Any wonderful acquisitions added to your TBR?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Hope life is treating you with the respect you deserve.
