It’s been a busy three days when it comes to galleys!  Thinking that I’d only be approved for one or two if I was lucky, I requested a whole ton of books on Netgalley earlier this week.  Then, as I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business and trying to do the job that I actually get paid for, my phone started blowing up.  Seriously, notification after notification was rolling in and I had no idea what was going on.

I had a constant flow of emails from Netgalley, which was so unexpected!  Not only was I approved for five galleys that I’d requested, but I was invited to read Alice Hoffman’s new book!

I’m already knee-deep in The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash, so, what’s next?

What’s next in your reading queue?

It’s been a great week for galleys!  I just finished Jamie Howard’s The Feeling of Forever, which was amazing and will live on in my heart for a long time.  (My review will be up soon.)

Next up are these six from Netgalley:

I’m excited about all of these titles, but particularly Madly (I absolutely adored Knox’s Truly when I read it two years ago) and Seven Days of You, which I had listed on my top ten anticipated debuts of 2017 list.

I’m abandoning the idea of carefully planning out what I’m going to read.  It always fails.  I only ended up reading one of the books I listed on my last book queue, so here we have three books I’ve currently checked out from the library.  Three books that I will almost certainly finish.  (Three books that it would be really unusual for me not to finish.)  Three very different books.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown // Outsider in the White House // Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares

What are you planning on reading next?

So, I guess I didn’t do too badly in my challenge to myself.  I flew through both Winter and The Bell Jar, but Time’s Edge proved elusive once again.  I’m taking that one off my list.  It’s just not happening right now.

Here are three books I’m going to try really hard to finish over the next two weeks or so!

– I have had The Kite Runner since 2012, when I accidentally stole it from my aunt’s friend.  She lent it to me, and then I moved halfway across the country and forgot to give it back.  And the worst part is I never even read it! So I am committing to reading this book and taking it back next time I go home.
– I have also had The Keeper of Lost Causes since about 2013 or so.  I bought it with some Audible credits I needed to use up, and I have never listened to it.
– I got an ARC of Another Day months ago, and shortly after finishing, bought Every Day (which actually comes first).  And, as with the books above… I still haven’t read it.  Maybe it’s good now, because I’ve forgotten just about everything that happens in Another Day.  I won’t spoil myself, at least.

I have a feeling that the goals I’ve set for myself might be a bit too lofty.  We’ll see.  Wish me luck!

I completely failed at the book queue I posted a couple weeks ago.  I’ve read several books since then, but only one of the three that I’d planed on. So here it is again.  My commitment to read these three books over the next two weeks.  It’s going to happen this time.  Seriously.  Probably.  Maybe.

Winter by Marissa Meyer
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
