My Netgalley TBR is getting scarily large and most definitely out of hand. I keep getting approved for more and more books than I’m expecting so I haven’t been able to keep my feedback rate higher than 76% this year. It seems that as soon as I read a book I get approved for another. Oh well. I’m still hoping for yet another one I requested last night…
I have 4 arcs in my reading app right now (I use Overdrive because the new Netgalley app sucks let’s be honest) and besides those I have yet another 6 to be downloaded still. I’m particularly excited about the 2021 releases to be honest. Some of these have already been published but for whatever reason it’s being reprinted/published by some other publishing house and Netgalley UK had it available to request.
September was nice. There was a mix of great days and bad days; of spending time with family and friends, and even going to the beach for one last time this year. For once, it already feels like Fall and I’m seriously considering putting away most of my Summer clothes before November because it is cold, windy and just lovely outside. Let’s talk about books now.
I had a great reading month. I read a bit more than what I was expecting considering what I was feeling. I set a TBR in the beginning of the month featuring so many good books – new releases, arcs, sequels, buddy reads – and I was truly excited for all of them but eventually it made me feel so overwhelmed… So, I will not be making a Fall or October, though I do have a vague mental list of which books I’m planning to read (mostly thrillers, fantasy and horror).
BUT! I discovered a new all-time favorite, received and read an arc for one of my most anticipated releases & I even received my first physical arc!! (The Wolf and the Water by Josie Jaffrey, an Atlantis-inspired fantasy.)
