So I don’t do a ton of challenges, but when Netgalley revealed that they were hosting a reviewathon I knew that I wanted to participate. I am trying to schedule my Instagram posts better, but I also have been steadily working on my ARCs for a while now. I’m basically already doing the challenge as a book blogger, but hopefully these prompts will help me get a little more structured.

Netgalley’s #Reviewathon Weekly Challenges

Week 1: Show off your TBR (To Be Reviewed)

I don’t typically make TBR lists and tend to mood read, but these are the books that I hope to read between 7/22/19 and 8/30/19. I have a lot of review copies to get through and am glad that this challenge is making me look at what I will probably be reading over the next month.

So this list is a little ambitious because it’s 14 titles and I typically only read about 8 to 10 a month. The other thing is that they’re not ALL titles that I got from Netgalley, but most of them are and I’m not going to neglect my non Netgalley ARCs just because of this challenge, so I decided to include them anyways. I am most excited for  The Bone Ships, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, The Furies and Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts. I think it will be interesting to see how many of these I actually read and which ones I liked best. I never actually set a TBR, so this should be fun.

 

Let’s Chat!

Are you participating in Netgalley’s Reviewathon? What books do you plan on reading for it? How tall is your ARC pile? Are there any books on this list that you also plan on reading?

  1. That’s a LOT of review books to get through. I was confused by the review dates you included until I realised you are probably using the American style of month/day/year? Maybe easier for your non American readers of you wrote the month in words?
    Good luck with the rest of the reviewathon…

    1. Yes, American style month day year. I forgot that Europeans don’t use that same method. Thank you for recommending writing the month instead because I do have many international readers. It’s a pretty ambitious list! I have been reading review copies the last two months and have read 7 books that still have yet to be released or reviews published. So I have been reading ahead a bit, but I still have so many fall ARCs to read!!!

  2. That’s a lot of books! I already read Mother Knows Best, which I liked a lot. I think I am going to add to my TBR the bone ship, cover looks so awesome:))) good luck with your challenge:))))

    1. Thank you! Mother Knows Best was an unsolicited ARC, so it’s probably one of the books that is least priority. I started reading The Bone Ships already, I couldn’t help myself from reading it as soon as I had it in my hands!

  3. I am also participating in the Reviewathon and I posted my TBR on Instagram. I think I have 27 or so Netgalley reads to finish so this is a perfect opportunity to get them read. Follow me at mommyincolorreads to see some of what I’m reading. Great list!

    1. I’m curious as to why NG is doing this challenge? Have they done one before and I missed it? I wonder if publishers have complained that there are too many ARCs not being reviewed? Lol

      I’m not participating just because 1) my instagram is a non existant mess and 2) I have my own calendar lol. But I can’t help but wonder why they are doing it…

      1. Well I’m basically ALWAYS doing a reviewathon, so it’s just great promotion for my blog and my instagram ahaha.

        I think they’re doing it to try and get a mass amount of reviews to pour in! Also, did you see the error this week? Where it said you couldn’t download or review certain titles because the content wasn’t finalized? I thought I lost 3 review copies that I hadn’t downloaded, but thankfully they fixed it!!

      2. I didn’t but I don’t have anything pending or to download so I probably wouldn’t have. I only have one or two books pending and they are on Edelweiss. I’m glad you didnt lose them

  4. Yeah. I’m wondering if TBRs have gotten out of hand. When I returned from my hiatus.. I worked my butt off to get myself out the gutter lol. If they had done this back in like Feb? Outside of the Instagram thing, I might have joined in. But I’m guessing something has gone awry. Funny too that this and the Twitter reading rush has started at the same time lol.

    1. I think it’s fun regardless! I love to have a reason to theme instagram photos or work on my Netgalley titles. I have a lot that I need to get through. I wish I had read more about Netgalley when I got the account in 2014 because in the beginning I treated it like a library and basically requested anything that looked halfway decent and have wound up fighting that ratio ever since.

      1. I also use Edelweiss, and I’ve been getting some ARCs that way. I’ll check out your post, but print ARCs are more difficult. Not everyone wants to pay the postage to send a book across the globe.

      2. Print ARCs are a problem for people who live internationally for sure. Edelweiss seems to be more accessible for international people. Kaleena from Reader Voracious has a few great guides on Edelweiss that really helped me get approved more often than I had before. If you want I can find them and link them. She also does this Readers around the Globe series and interviews international bloggers and talks about how international bloggers struggle with ARCs and also just cultural stuff.

      3. They were very easy to find. So Kaleena is a wonderful person and very helpful with the community. She actually runs Flapping Pages, which I can’t believe I forgot to mention, which is an International ARC program to help more ARCs get into the hands of Own Voices readers, or just International bloggers in general. I will also link that below. I linked the main page of Reading Around the Globe, which has links to each post within it and also has instructions on how to participate if you want and at the bottom it has resources for International bloggers. The last thing I linked is the Edelweiss guide, which really helped me figure out the site and also helped me get a lot more approvals on there than I ever had before.
