NetGalley November is hosted by Em at emandherbooks and Lisa at totandtales. 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!
Here’s an update on how I’m doing so far… I was especially pleased to finally get around to reading my oldest outstanding approval.
For more information check out the dedicated Twitter page @NetGalleyNov.
My proposed reading list was inspired by the Bingo prompts. Links from the titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads or, where indicated, to my review.
