#NetgalleyNovember

The last half of November kind of kicked my ass. Between all the busyness of my birthday, Thanksgiving break, my phone dying, and then just yesterday having to deal with a damaged windshield has been a lot. Didn‘t get to participate as much as I wanted in #NFNov or even my own goal of #NetGalleyNovember. Looking forward to #WinterGames next month though! #NamasteNovember #NovemberStats

Eggs You did very well despite the distractions 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2w

Trying to clear the backlog for #NetGalleyNovember.

This was... disturbing!

Silvie accompanies her parents on an experimental archaeology field trip. With her abusive father, it was never going to be an easy week, but things become progressively darker.

I‘ve loved several of Sarah Moss‘s longer novels so approached this with high expectations. Although initially unsure, I was drawn in and it will haunt me for a long while.

TrishB I found it haunting too. 3w
RachelO @TrishB Finding it difficult to leave behind! 3w
batsy Yes, haunting is the right word. So good 3w

Mehso-so

⭐⭐

Not for "dones" who don't return to the church.

If you are someone deconstructing your religion and still find yourself on the side of evangelical Christianity, I think you might get something from this book. If you find yourself bordering on something between Christian and Agnostic, I wouldn't recommend.

Didn't get to post my #BookReport on Saturday. Was a busy week! I finished reading The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids series. Might keep my eye out for some of the adjacent series to collect as well. This week I can focus on my ARCs for #NetgalleyNovember #NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Woohoo!!!! Congrats on completing the series 🎉🎉 3w

#BookReport @Cinfhen
Finished 7/9 and am halfway through both of my #NFNov #NetgalleyNovember books. I should be able to finish those tomorrow. I am hoping I can finish out the rest of the Bailey School Kids series next week as well. Only 10 more to go.

Cinfhen Ohhh, thanks for reminding me about my #NetGalley ARCs 😜 1mo

Do you suck at finishing NetGalley ARCs? I decided to catch up on my embarrassingly past due ARCs this month and make it a #NetGalleyNovember feel free to join me. Also 4 out of 5 of these work for #NFNov so if you read a lot of NonFiction check out the tag! #GratefulReads #LookingForwardToReading #tbr @rsteve388 @Clwojick @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 🙌🏻📚 I‘m behind on everything!! 1mo

EKonrad I‘m always behind!! I can‘t ever seem to catch up because I keep requesting more! Lol 😆 1mo
MatchlessMarie @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @librarianryan @ekonrad Glad to know I'm not alone 😂 luckily I think 5 books is manageable for me 🤞 1mo

Apparently I get anxious when my #netgalley unreviewed-approval list gets long. Like I‘m letting down the publishers that approved me. Does this happen to anyone else?

RachelO I‘ve banned myself from any more requests until I‘m over 80% , I over-requested at the start and never caught up. And yes, definitely feel bad about it! @MatchlessMarie is doing #netgalleynovember this month, if a hashtag might give you a push! (edited) 1mo
MatchlessMarie @RachelO thanks for reminding me! I need to post my tbr. Most of mine will also work nicely with #NFNov 1mo
rsteve388 1 pt! Good Luck! 1mo
rsteve388 Hey have you signed up? I don't see your name listed in my Google sheet that's attached to the form? 1mo
EKonrad Yes, same here! But it doesn‘t stop me from requesting more and more titles! 🤦🏽‍♀️ 1mo

Only 2 days late!!

This is my #weeklyforecast - I will review Anton‘s next book before #readersfirst start sending me grumpy emails or decide to blacklist me. Enjoying it so far 👍

And have a 4 hour round-trip by train on Saturday, so Pratchett on audio and Treasure Island!!! as light reading, both physically and mentally (it‘s exceedingly silly!)

Cinfhen Those ARCs are both delightful and torturous!! I try to keep up but sometimes I just fall far behind 🙄😬 1mo
RachelO @Cinfhen Yup! My NetGalley heap never recovered from my over enthusiasm when I first signed up 😬📚📚📚 1mo
MatchlessMarie @RachelO same. I'm trying to make next month #NetgalleyNovember so I can finally remove my shame 😅 1mo
RachelO @MatchlessMarie Glad to know I‘m not alone! It‘s a good idea - I might join you and see if I can nudge my rating up another 5%... 1mo
