So I had a 4-day work week, and that meant I really got through some of my NetGalley books!
If there is anyone over here who doesn’t know what NetGalley is, NetGalley is a website you can use to request ARCs, or Advance Reader copies. It has some of the biggest publishes and some really wonderful books!

While I really wanted to finish these books, I couldn’t. I was just a bit lazy and should have been more on top of things. They seemed interesting, and I plan on buying the History of Tarot Art. Overthinking About You by Allison Raskin, Clothes by XYZ were also interesting reads. With Clothes I faced a different issue; I couldn’t stand reading the Adobe version on my iPad. It was so glitchy I couldn’t stand it. I didn’t even get the chance to start Rapture and Melancholy; it was archived!

Blood and Fire by Kim Mullican
I think is an interesting story, but when I’m tired, reading a badly edited book annoys me!
Voice of Fire by Alan Moore
This seemed really interesting, but honestly the style of the first story put me off!
Longing & Be-Longing by Paulette Rochelle-Levy
This was just not my style of poetry at all! But I genuinely think others out there will like this!
Dead Girls Can’t Tell Secrets by Chelsea Ichaso
For this one, I’m just going to link up my review!
The Lost Sister by Alexa H. Michaels & Eleanor Elaine
Also, shamelessly linking up my blog post! This is also here because I forgot to post my review to NetGalley earlier!
Avidly Reads Poetry by Jacquelyn Ardam
The Gifts That Bind Us by Caroline O’Donoghue
Yes, I did write a review just so I could link it up here!
Not great! I have two NetGalley accounts!
I currently have a feedback ratio of 67%, which is 13% below the recommended ratio of 80%!
Given that I have been approved for a total of 161 books, with 108 reviewed, I need to read 21 more books to get to 80%!
This is even worse! I’m at 52%, with 297 books approved! I need to read 84 books to hit 80%, which seems kind of impossible at the moment!
My strategy is to try to read what I like and DNF what I don’t! I hate that when you say I won’t be reviewing this book, it doesn’t count towards your score, which is why I don’t do that! I go ahead and tell the publisher why I’m giving up at 20% (for example)! It’s harsh, but you did want my honest opinion!
