Netgalley November Update & Authors for the Philippines

Typecast

Well we’re at the halfway point and I think I might make my target of 10, even with all the crazy that’s going on.

So far I’ve read five books, you can see the first 3 review below:

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson
The In-Between by Barbara Stewart
After Eden by Helen Douglas

Instead of making progress though I seem to have used Netgalley November as an excuse to request even more books. I want to say I’ll ban myself but that normally has exactly the opposite effect.

I have a week off in December, maybe I’ll extend the challenge. #positivethinking

How is everyone else getting along?

  1. Well done, you’ll definitely make your target! I read After Eden this week, no review yet though, and when I’ve logged onto Netgalley I’ve uploaded my reviews then logged off again otherwise I know I’d be clicking on ‘request’ again!

  2. I read After Eden Last Week and I have to say that for me it was just an OK read.
    I have read and reviewed 5 books for the challenge so far, but like you I succumbed to more titles on netgalley and now I am almost back where I started!

  3. Ha – I know what you mean about insituting a ban usually having the opposite effect. I’m the same way. At least you’re getting books read – that’s the most important thing, IMO. Great job this week!

  4. I have the same trouble Luna. I keep requesting more books. My post will be up later, but I’ve read 7 so far for this challenge. I want to reach 10 as well, which I think is doable. I also think I might try to carry on with my ARCs into December. Well done 🙂

  5. I’m trying to keep myself from requesting so many books… but it’s not working all that well. One thing I have been better at doing is vetting the books on Goodreads before requesting them because, quite frankly, I’ve come across a lot of crap books during this challenge.

    Good luck on your goals!
