The #NetGalleyNovember reading challenge is over for another year and it’s time to see how I did.
I managed to read seven books from my NetGalley shelf (see below) including my oldest approval, The Labyrinth of the Spirits. You can probably work out why it was my oldest approval when I tell you it was over 800 pages long. Links from the book titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads or to my review. My thanks to the publishers who provided me with the review copies via NetGalley, some of them a very long time ago…
My Father’s House by Joseph O’Connor (Review to follow)
Death to the Emperor by Simon Scarrow
Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver
The Weather Woman by Sally Gardner
Forest of Foes by Matthew Harffy (Review to follow for blog tour)
The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The Sentence is Death by Anthony Horowitz
Unfortunately, although I read the number of books I targeted my feedback ratio didn’t increase by as much as I’d hoped because of new approvals, mostly for blog tours. And I didn’t manage to complete all the squares on the #NetGalleyNovember Bingo card. However, I very much enjoyed participating in the challenge and sharing my progress with the other bloggers taking part. My thanks to the Neverending NetGalley team for organising the challenge once again.
Once again I’ve joined the NetGalley November reading challenge, a month long readathon where you focus on reading books from your NetGalley shelf and – hopefully – increasing your feedback ratio as a result. You can follow the progress of all the participants on Twitter and Instagram.
Although I don’t have that many books on my NetGalley shelf and I’ve worked hard to get my feedback ratio as high as possible, some of the books that remain on my shelf have been there for a really long time. Since 2018 in the case of the oldest one.
As we’re just over half way through November I thought I’d review my progress so far. I’m pretty pleased with the fact I’ve already read four books and I’m part way through the next one, although it’s over 800 pages so I may be here for some time. Links from the book titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads or to my review.
