Netgalley Challenge 2013

April 3, 2013 Uncategorized 11

I’m a little late to the party, but I just found out about the NetGalley Challenge sponsored by Red House Books.  Basically, it’s designed to encourage bloggers to read (and of course review!) all those NetGalley e-ARCs and review copies we sign up for!  Since I have already secretly vowed to do much better on that front this year, joining the Challenge was a no-brainer (and it’s not too late to sign up!) 

I’m setting my goal at 20 NetGalley books for the year, which puts me in the Green Star level:

Green Star: Read 11-20 NetGalley books in 2013

 Since the challenge runs all year, I can count the NetGalley titles I’ve already read and reviewed:

  1. The Lost Prince (Call of the Forgotten #1), by Julie Kagawa
  2. The Runaway King (Ascendance Trilogy #2), by Jennifer A. Nielsen
  3. The Nightmare Affair (Arkwell Academy #1), by Mindee Arnett
  4. Spellbinding, by Maya Gold
  5. Oz Reimagined, edited by John Joseph Adams and Douglas Cohen

So I’ve made a good start toward meeting my goal!  I’ve got several NetGalley titles on my e-reader right now, too — The Sweetest Dark and The Rose Thorn and His Majesty’s Hope, plus a few titles for later on this year.

Wish me luck!

    Good luck with your goals! I have The Nightmare Affair on my TBR. Will have to check out your review.

    Good luck! I try not to sign up for more than I can handle…as long as I keep to YA lit, I do fine. It’s when I start getting heavier books that I have trouble keeping up!

      I’m trying not to sign up for more than I can handle, either… but sometimes I ask for several at a time figuring I’ll only get approved for one or two, and get all three. And sometimes I figure that it’s been over a month since I requested a title, so I’m not going to get it — and then surprise! I get approved.

    You’re off to a good start! NetGalley is worse than any candy store so these challenges are an excellent way to keep up.
