I have not exactly been shy in admitting my addiction to e-galley sites like Edelweiss and NetGalley. I request far too many titles, and really struggle to get them read in a timely fashion. So I was really excited when I saw a mention of NetGalley November on my Bloglovin’ feed, and knew I needed to participate. I’m not going to go into full details of the challenge – it’s probably pretty self-explanatory, anyway – but instead am going to use this post as a way for me to keep track of my goals and progress.
As with any other read-a-thon or challenge, I’m going to create a goals post – which will be this post – and shall also do a progress post as well. Since this is a month-long challenge, those progress posts will go up each Saturday, since I don’t do any other posts on the weekends. Hopefully those will keep me on track and actually help me get through some of my e-galley backlog!
The organizers of this challenge have set up four different levels you can choose from in terms of how many e-galleys you want to read. Because I also have some library books to get through, I’m going to set my goal at the Hard Level, which means my intention is to read between 11 and 15 e-galleys. I’m honestly not sure how this will go, since last month I read a grand total of three books, but since I do have a five-day break for Thanksgiving, hopefully I can manage.
If any of you are participating in this challenge, let me know! I’d love to help prod you along and cheer on your successes, and would welcome anyone willing to lend me support as well.
List of NetGalley Titles to Choose From in November:
Obviously I am not going to get all of these read, and may deviate from the list a bit, but figured this was a good starting point. I threw in some MG, some paranormal, some contemporary, some fantasy, and even a nonfiction memoir, so have a nice mix of genres to choose from. We’ll see how it goes, at any rate. Wish me luck!
