That Never-Ending NetGalley TBR

So…like many bookworms, NetGalley is both a blessing and a curse for me! It’s an amazing way to get hold of some incredible books prior to publication, which, as an ex-bookseller, is something that I really missed about bookselling, and it means you can get involved in the whole hype of a new book in the run up to its release and help to influence others to try it! However, this also means that there are lots and lots of tempting books available for you to request, and it’s so easy to go a bit crazy requesting books! When I first got NetGalley I would request books I just slightly fancied, but I found that I just couldn’t get into them or find the motivation to read them over exciting books that were already out, so now I try so hard to only request books I know I’ll read and want to push to the top of my TBR. I feel like I owe the publishers to at least attempt to read the book, as they’ve so kindly sent me a copy, so I like to try to do each book justice! So, this month I decided that I was going to draw a line and start using NetGalley more efficiently – only choosing books I really want to read, prioritising them by publication date to an extent. I always make sure that I give a shout out to every book I’m sent on my Instagram or Twitter, then once I’ve read it I try to review it as soon as possible on here! If I love the book, and you follow me on Twitter, I’m very sorry for how obsessive I can get!

So, without futher ado, here is my current TBR on NetGalley (pictures to come!):
