Netgalley Readathon & Challenge
I just came across this NetGalley challenge by The Library Looter & Anniek’s Library and I thought it couldn’t have come at a better moment in time. Here in California we are still having a mandatory Shelter in Place, that means I actually have time to read.
NetGalley has always been DANGEROUS for me. I want to read ALL the books, and because of it my NetGalley shelf gets quite crowded. I’m also a mood reader – which makes things even more interesting since ARCs can easily get shuffled to the bottom of my tbr. Having a challenge like this is hopefully an incentive for me to pick up a couple books from my NetGalley tbr next week.
The readathon lasts from Monday April 20 to Sunday April 26, and the goal is to read exclusively Netgalley titles during this time!
Additionally the hosts added a couple challenges as well:
- Read a hyped book
- Read your oldest title
- Read your newest title
- Read your longest title
- Read your shortest title
- Read an upcoming release
- Read a book with a pretty cover
Of course I’m not kidding myself thinking that I could finish all seven challenges next week, but even if I only read one book from my NetGalley tbr, it’s a success.
At the moment I have 12 titles on my NG shelf, and 7 are older than three month.
Here are the books I’m hoping to read:
Read a hyped book
A Bad Day for Sunshine Darynda Jones

Read your newest title
Dragon Unleashed Grace Draven

Read a book with a pretty cover

Read an upcoming release
Starbreaker Amanda Bouchet

How does your NetGalley shelf look like? Could it use some TLC? Do you have NetGalley goals, like reaching a certain feedback ratio?
