2018 NetGalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge #NGEW2018

My Second Reading Challenge this year is one that I won’t be hammering but is one I’m hoping will help me clear up a small section of my TBR…those pesky NetGalley books I have lingering around! I stopped requesting random NetGalley books early last year when my TBR started looking like a monster that wanted to attack me! I now only request books by favourite authors or books on blog tours. I do still have a few books lingering from my trigger happy days that I need to read and clear off so I’m hoping this challenge will help me. I am so determined to clear my TBR a little this year!

This challenge is hosted by Bookish Things & More if you want to join in. I will list books on this page as I read them with links to reviews as they go up. I currently have 25 books on my TBR from NetGalley, it would be nice to clear them all off through this year. Wishful thinking? Maybe but I can set out positively right?

Challenge Guidelines

  • The challenge will run from Jan 1, 201 – Dec 31, 2018.
  • Anyone is welcome to join. You do not need to be a blogger, just post your reviews and come back every month to link them up.
  • Any genre, release date, request date, length, etc. counts so long as it came from Edelweiss or Netgalley.
  • At the beginning of each month there will be a roundup post for you to add your reviews.
  • If you forget to link up one month it’s not a problem just add your reviews next month.
  • If you would like to move up or down levels that is completely fine and at your discretion.
  • If you have any questions tweet me @BookishThings or e-mail bookishthingsandmore@yahoo.com!

I'm BrizzleLass, I am a bookworm and my book blog BrizzleLass Books is where I share my love of books by writing reviews, sharing guest posts from authors, interviews and even the odd bookish giveaway! I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. My personal blog BrizzleLass.co.uk is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me.

  1. Cool challenge! Like you mention, I was also a trigger finger. I have at least 2 handfuls of books on Netgalley waiting for reviews, but I’m not sure about the challenge. Will read more and maybe hop on. Good luck, Claire. Happy reading!

  2. I’ve been having trouble with NetGalley and Edelweiss – my feedback ratios are 98% and 100% respectively, but I have months old requests that are still pending. Many of my requests just disappear after the book is published or archived. Anyone else having this problem?
