A few days ago I made a judgement call that would force me to get back into reading in a manic way. I went on Netgalley and requested a bunch of books. I’d banned myself from doing this ages ago. But, I’m not a depressed bean anymore. I’m excited about life and moving forward and I missed reading. It’s one of the biggest most magical parts of my life and I wanted to give myself an even larger incentive to read then ever.

I really didn’t know what I was expecting when I did this. I’ve been reviewing a bit lately and I just wanted to see what would happen and boy has it been an interesting line of approvals so far.

Also, I’m so incredibly grateful to Netgalley and all the publishers that approved me to read all these amazing titles. THANK YOU!!!

Books Requested and Approved:

Mayhem by Estelle Laure

That cover my goodness! I saw it and had to request.

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

  1. I did the exact same thing. I didn’t think I’d get approved because I was not active for a few years and my feedback rate is a bit low. I thought wrong because now I have 8 netgalley arcs to read 😂😂

    1. Yeah, it’s curious how that works. My ratio was above 80 and it’s at 75% now with all the approvals. So for me it’s not so bad. I’m definitely not gonna request again till I’m back to above 80%. Just to keep some semblance of sanity.

  2. I also have a ton of Netgalley ARCs waiting for me. I used to try my hardest not to DNF a book so that I could give a full and honest review, even if negative. But if being a librarian taught me anything, it’s that there just isn’t enough time to waste on books that don’t keep my interested! So among all my recent Netgalley books to review, there have been a few DNF’s LOL. I hope you get through plenty of these and love them!
