I did the unthinkable.
All the fellow book bloggers warned me against it.
I had so much control initially.
Where did it all go?
Now, I’m just a girl
Faced with multiple NetGalley titles.
Racing against time
Trying to finish them all.
Forget the cringe-worthy attempt at writing in the previous paragraph. When I first started blogging, I made a rule for myself–always request only 2 or 3 titles at once in NetGalley. I even followed through with it for a while. Until recently.
I’m on a self-imposed book buying ban due to lack of shelf space and shelf-control (pun intended). I wanted to focus on eBooks until I got a bigger book shelf. A few weeks back, I logged in to NetGalley, and my resolve flew right out the window when I saw all the books.
This is my shelf right now:
I’m so excited about reading all these pretty books!
I had 7 initially, but I finished 2 of them.
The 5 books on my TBR, the first of which I’m currently reading are:
- Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden
- I feel Bad: All Day. Everyday. About Everything by Orli Auslander
- See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt
- The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness by Paula Poundstone
- Best Intentions by Erika Raskin
I loved the synopsis of all these books and I can’t wait to read them all!
The next time I use NetGalley, however, I’m definitely going to stick to the rule–request only two or three books.
If you listen closely enough, you can hear my resolve breaking.
Have you read any of these books? Do you go on a spree on NetGalley ever? Let me know in the comments!
