Since I’m trying to find content to post so this blog isn’t just Top Ten Tuesday prompts, I decided to go through my next ten NetGalley rejections and talk about them. I’m finding it’s fun to see which ones received rejection and how I felt about them later.
Lucky Caller by Emma Mills: I was sad I didn’t get approved for this one because I love Emma Mills books. I ended up reading it after it was released and enjoyed.
Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim: I liked the first book, Spin the Dawn, but Unravel the Dusk disappointed me a lot. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t get an early copy.
Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan: I read this after it released, but I don’t remember it well. I must have enjoyed it enough to read book three!
Hearts, Strings, and Other Broken Things by Jacqueline Firkins: After reading this, I wish I hadn’t even bothered. So disappointing. I just don’t like an version of Mansfield Park.
Hood by Jenny Elder Moke: I attempted to read this one after its release, but I didn’t get very far before I gave up. Again, maybe there’s a reason NetGalley rejects my requests XD
Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston: Even though I didn’t get to read an early copy, I pre-ordered this book and devoured it in a day. I love Ashley Poston’s books!
The Deck of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman: I wasn’t a huge fan of her first book, but I wanted to give book two a try just in case. I should have just skipped this one. It was not my thing.
Paolo Santiago and the River of Tears by Tehlor Kay Mejia: Since this is a Rick Riordan Presents book, it’s still on my list to read once the entire series is published. I may never catch up with these books.
Quintessance by Jess Redman: I have no memory of requesting this book, but after rereading the synopsis, I added it to my Goodreads TBR. Someday I’ll get to it!
Traitor by Amanda McCrina: After this came out, I started it but wasn’t as interested as I thought so I never finished it. Maybe I’ll try it again sometime.
As of this month, I’ve been rejected on NetGalley 69 times and approved 103 times with 90 reviews sent. I have several pending that I’m sure won’t be approved since it’s been months since the books were published.
