Recent Netgalley Requests – Apr. 2020

Hi there friends!!

So, we are almost through April now…. what the heck is happening? Time is flying by so quickly. It is also SO PAINFUL that its beautiful outside but all the parks and whatnot are closed. Who would have thought the world would come to this? I actually miss the outside?? I never really liked being outside that much (wow that sounds so pathetic πŸ˜‚) before but now that I’m not allowed to go out…. I want it! But, on the positive side, with more time spent inside it means more books are being read and I do love to read so its not all complaints from me.

I thought it would be fun to share with you all my most recent requests on Netgalley, what they have approved me for, and sadly what I have been DECLINED. Also, can be talk about the feelings you get when a book is declined? I take it like a personal attack almost LOL I felt okay when my first one was declined as I had been approved for so many, so I felt it was fair. BUT THEN I got 3 books in a row declined and I have to say – I felt a little salty about it.

Anyways, I have gotten over it now hahaha. Hopefully I can work on my salty attitude towards declined books in the future as Im sure there will be many!

Overall, I am happy with how Netgalley is treating me. I have read some fabulous books off it and keep getting a pretty steady stream of books!!

  1. I also have The Woman Before Wallis and I’m excited to dive into it! I was declined for a book a couple of months ago and then Netgalley sent an email that it was available to Read Now and I was so excited. Until I went to get it and I couldn’t read it since they had already declined me haha Oh well πŸ˜‚

  2. I don’t get declined often but I do get declined. I find that it’s mostly certain publishers, so I just try to avoid them. Even ones that give the whole β€œit’s not you it’s us” (approved too many requests, looking for certain readers, etc..) – I still avoid. I figure there is too many books and too little time, so I will go with the publishers that want to work with me – like the Harlequin imprints – Mira, Park Row, and Graydon House – I love their mystery/thrillers and their PR people are great to work with ❀️
