If you’ll remember, I vowed to NOT have a very big bookhaul this time. I’ve been attempting to control my over-large TBR by planning out my reading month and, most importantly, NOT adding to my every growing list of review commitments.
Well…….. my reading plan was very successful. I read eleven books in April.
BUT !!!! my book haul was almost as large as it was before!
My weakness is appalling!
I completely forgot to factor in that I had already requested some titles from NetGalley that I hadn’t heard back from yet – which have since been approved.
AND some lovely publishers sent me NetGalley widgets for titles I just couldn’t pass up:
Thomas & Mercer/Amazon Publishing UK
sent me a widget for “The retreat” by Mark EdwardsSimon & Schuster sent me a widget for “The Lido” by Libby PageSt. Martin’s Press sent me a widget for “She as the quiet one” by Michele Campbell
and, I’m taking part in a book tour in August with Rachel’s Random Resourcesso, I had to get the book “The Cheesemaker’s House” by Jane Cable for the tour
and the ever generous Thistle Publishing sent me “The woodcutter” by Shaun Bainesand… I had a
huge fail severe weak spell when I visited Edelweiss to find that the following book was a Download Now title for me. As I had read her debut novel and loved it, I couldn’t help but take them up on the offer of “A double life” by Flynn Berry
Can you believe it???? NINE more review commitments!
After I had vowed to have no more than two….
Hope I do better next month……….
so I’ll have to fit in at least one short story. I choose
“The text” by Claire Douglas (40 pages)
My Goodreads Challenge is coming along nicely:
