NetGalley

Feed Your Readers, the NetGalley Challenge

Duration: Monthly

How to Participate:

The NetGalley Challenge is designed to not only get you to read your NetGalley books, but to also advertise your reviews for others to see because after all, that's what NetGalley is all about.

Though you may pop in/out at any time, the NetGalley Challenge will run on a monthly basis so you are able to see progress being made.


1. At the beginning of the month, post any/all of the following:
a: How many books on your NetGalley shelf
b: What books are on your NG shelf
c: What your Netgalley feedback ratio is

2. During the month, read the NetGalley books that you can AND update your post with your reviews. (You can do this after each book or wait until the end of the month.)

3. At the end of the month, update your post and with:
a: What books you read
b: Link(s) to your review(s)**
c: Your updated shelf count
d: Your updated books to read
e: Your updated ratio

Then start a new post for the next month!


But Wait, There's More

Do you ever get so caught up in your reading that you don't want to stop to write your reviews?

Thinking about that, it was decided we need a "Review Weekend", once each month, set aside to write those reviews you've been not doing in favor of reading!

Review Weekends will vary randomly each month and is meant to be a time set aside to review. Take one, or both days and get caught up on reviews so you can spend the rest of the month reading!!

The next Review Weekend is set for July 21/22



**When linking your reviews, please link only to the book(s) here at GoodReads. At this time, linking to a personal blog is not allowed. Thank you!

I've been reading so many books to fit the TT challenge, and mostly buddy reads, that I haven't read a single NetGalley book yet this month. Yikes!
I usually read in order from oldest to newest, but I don't really feel like reading my oldest... decisions decisions...

(yes, I'm procrastinating... lol)


message 30: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3351 comments Haha...I keep trying to read one off my newer list so it doesn't end up on my "older than 3 months" shelf, then one off my older list to try to catch those up. I'd do better with my plan if I stopped requesting new books, but I requested more again today. I really need to try to focus on reading these more.

Kristie | 3351 comments I got my first auto-approval from Amazon Publishing UK! :) I almost picked up In Her Shadow just because I can. lol Then I thought I have far too many on my shelf right now and a few still pending. I should probably put the brakes on. I'm never going to be able to review all these in a timely manner.

Karen - Mine would all be on that shelf too if I wasn't still requesting! I have 8 on there now, which is more than enough, and The Widow's Watcher will be moving over there tomorrow. So, half of my books on each shelf.

And fun fact, the author of this book thanks the author of Monstress, Vol. 1 Awakening (Monstress, #1) by Marjorie M. Liu which I also have from Netgalley! I don't know, I think it's interesting :D
