As you all know my Netgalley ratio is one of my bookish goals this year (and has been the past few years). It’s not one I’ve been good at, so I really need to concentrate on this one. I’ve written about my backlist in four other posts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4). It’s been almost a year since I wrote a post like this and it shows, haha. Today is my Netgalley Backlist Part 5. Let’s take a look!
When I wrote Part 4 my feedback ratio was at 56% and I thought it was bad. I’m not at 46, so it can get worse, haha. I’m not up to 252 book approved and 115 feedback send. So I’m up to 137 unread books (last time it was 61), so it’s gotten really out of hand. I have quite a few tours coming up, but this is awful, haha.
Miracle Creek – Angie Kim
Mysteries and thrillers have been interesting me, but I have to say I’ve never thought to read courtroom dramas. I love when books take place in small towns, because that always makes the interactions between characters more interesting. This isn’t a book I’ve seen around much, but it still has me curious.
Nocturna – Maya Motayne
I’m a big fan of fantasy books and Nocturna sounds like an interesting read. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where a character is a faceshifter. That definitely makes a story interesting. I’ve heard some good things about this and the sequel releases in April, so I have a little time to catch up!
Our Stop – Laura Jane Williams
It’s an interesting concept that you can fall for someone you only see on the train every morning. Our Stop sounds like a romance that has a lot of potential to be a lot of fun. As a romance lover this one definitely caught my eye.
The Hive – Barry Lyga & Morgan Baden
Science fiction is something I really want to read more of and The Hive sounds like just the book for me. Social media is a big part of our lives, but what if you get sanctioned for a comment going viral? It’s going to be an interesting take on what could happen with social media in a different world.
Heartwood Box – Ann Aguirre
I can’t believe I forgot about Heartwood Box, because thrillers are something I’ve really been enjoying lately. Another one that takes place in a small town and I have to say this definitely sounds creepy. This one will have to be put higher on my list.
The Grace Year – Kim Liggett
The Grace Year is a book I saw everywhere when it released near the end of 2019. A lot of people loved this story and I’m honestly surprised I haven’t gotten around to this one yet. So many friends have read and loved this book. Part of me thinks I waited, because it’s hard to read a book when it’s so hyped.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January – Alix E. Harrow
The Ten Thousand Doors of January is another book that I’ve seen around everywhere and hear nothing but amazing things about. Also look at that stunning cover! And when a character finds a strange book you know it’s going to be an interesting ride.
The Love Solution – Ashley Croft
This is one of the books I actually forgot about. The Love Solution has some mixed reviews, so it’s going to be interesting to see where I end up on the scale. I love reading about family and sisters, but I have a feeling this one may be a bit more complicated.
So those are the next 8 books on my Netgalley backlist. It’s sad, but I actually forgot about a few of these. Have you read any of these? Any I need to start with soon? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
