NetGalley Knockout Challenge!


I stumbled upon this great August reading challenge and it seemed perfect for the back-to-school month! I have a lot of really great digital review copies from NetGalley that I would like to get read and reviewed so...why not?

Here's the deal from the host's blog (Goldilox and the Three Weres):

Pledge to read those books from your Netgalley and Edelweiss egalleys during the month of August by entering your blog on the linky below!

The books you read do not have to be released in August. They can be already released, released in August, or released later than August.
So...I don't actually know how many books I will get read in August as I'm starting a new job (YAY!), but I'm totally willing to give it a go! (And some expire VERY soon!!) Here's my list of NetGalley books that will be on the challenge TBR list:

  1. Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Schultz
  2. The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coates

Hahahaa...seeing that list all written out...OUCH.  They are in pub date order, so that is generally the order that I try to tackle them in, but this time I'm in pursuit of new books for my high schoolers so I'll probably start with the ones I think will most appeal to them. :)  My GOAL will be to read at least 15 of these in August. Lofty? Perhaps...

Wow, I thought my NetGalley list was huge. Now I don't feel so bad about the amount that I have lol. Good luck with your goal. You can do it!! :)

Lol, yeah...this post was a bit...EMBARRASSING to write and post. I'm SO far behind...and usually I don't look at the whole list at one time because it's so overwhelming!

Firstly, I just want to say your blog design is gorgeous! I love it!


Also, your list is long, but don't feel too embarrassed! I'm sure all of us (I know I have!) have let ours get away a bit! - My review pile isn't so big, it's all the books I have bought over the past year, sitting in my shelf unread that is embarrassingly messive!


Good luck :) New follower!
