My #NetGalleyNovember Reading List @NetGalleyNov

NetGalley NovemberI know, do I really need a new reading challenge? Probably not, however I couldn’t resist joining in when I came across NetGalley November hosted by Em at emandherbooks  and Lisa at totandtales. So what is NetGalley November? Basically it’s a month long readathon where you focus on reading books on your NetGalley shelf. Whether you start with a shelf of books in single figures (but, let’s face it, who has?) or one with hundreds of books, the aim is to end up with a better NetGalley ratio then when you started, and of course enjoy talking about the books you read with others. And, at the end of November, when you’ve cleared some books from your NetGalley shelf, do you know what you can do? That’s right – request some new ones!

Em and Lisa have activities planned throughout November to help us maintain our momentum such as reading sprints and, always a favourite of mine, Book Bingo which this year will also feature a giveaway. To qualify, all you have to do is read a book that matches one of the prompts below. For more information check out the dedicated Twitter page @NetGalleyNov.


NetGalleyNovember StartAlthough I may not have that many books on my shelf, quite a lot of the ones I do have were approved ages ago – can anyone beat July 2017?

My proposed reading list is inspired by the Bingo prompts. Links from the titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads or – eventually, I hope – to my review.

A book published this year: Lily by Rose Tremain (Vintage)
Your oldest approval: Eureka by Anthony Quinn (Vintage)
Book beginning with ‘N’: Now We Shall Be Entirely Free by Andrew Miller (Hodder & Stoughton)
Your latest approval: The Red Monarch by Bella Ellis (Hodder & Stoughton)
Book with a green cover: The Room of the Dead by M.R.C. Kasasian (Head of Zeus)
A book yet to be released: Violets by Alex Hyde (Granta)
A book beginning ‘The’: The Diver and the Lover by Jeremy Vine (Hodder & Stoughton)
A debut author: The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal (Picador)
Most excited for: Two Storm Wood by Philip Gray (Vintage)

  1. I already have a lot of reading commitments for November, otherwise I would be tempted to join in with this challenge. I don’t have too many books on my NetGalley shelf at the moment but, like you, I have some that have been there for years – and I’m afraid I can beat 2017!
