On My NetGalley Shelf

Hello we are nearing the end of this year so I thought it would be a good idea to see what’s left on my NetGalley shelf that I need to read.

I don’t request from NetGalley too often as I have other review commitments to get through and I feel bad leaving them on the shelf for so long. I only have four left so I don’t think I am doing too bad.

The Weight Of A Thousand Feathers by Brian Conaghan (Pub Jun 18)

feathers

“‘Funny how no one ever uses the word ‘love’ when discussing my case. I do what I do because she’s my mum. That pure and that simple.’
Bobby Seed is used to going the extra mile for the ones he loves, and he does it willingly. It’s up to Bobby to get Mum her pills, to help her up the stairs, to laugh her out of her pain. It’s up to Bobby to comfort his little brother Danny, to explain why Mum’s not like the Mum they remember.
One day, he’s asked to go further. Mum asks him the big question. The one many would find unthinkable. If he agrees, he won’t just be soothing her pain. He’ll be helping to end it.”

The Promise by Katerina Diamond (Pub Sep18)

promise

“When troubled teen Connor moves to Exeter from the US after a horrific school shooting, he finds himself embroiled in a world of popular kids and easy girls. Everyone wants to be his friend, but they don’t know about what he did…and they don’t know about his father.

As Connor’s life in England begins to unravel, DS Adrian Miles and his partner Imogen Grey are working up against the clock to catch a serial killer who dates his victims before he kills them. Determined to uncover the truth, Imogen is forced to act as bait – but will she take it too far and risk her own life?”

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley (Pub Dec 18)

hunting

“Everyone’s invited. Everyone’s a suspect.

Nine friends ring in the New Year in the remote Scottish Highlands.

As the curtain falls on another year, the celebrations begin.

The next 48 hours see the friends catching up, reminiscing over past stories, scratching old wounds. . . And guarding friendship-destroying secrets.

The clock has barely struck 12 when a broken body is found in the snow.

Not an accident – a murder among friends.

When a thick blizzard descends, the group are trapped.

No-one can get in. And no-one can get out.

Not even the killer”

A Curse So Dark And Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (Pub Jan 19)

curse

“Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall, is cursed. Forced to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he can only be freed by love. But at the end of each autumn he is transformed into a beast hell-bent on destruction, and after so many failed attempts, his kingdom and its people are barely holding on. 
Harper’s life has never been easy, but she’s learned to be tough enough to survive. She won’t let anything hold her back, not her cerebral palsy or her mother’s deteriorating health. But when she is sucked into Rhen’s world, nothing is as it seems. Powerful forces are standing against Emberfalll … and it will take more than a broken curse to save it from utter ruin.”

Have you read any of these?

My plan is to have them all read by the end of the year so fingers crossed!

    1. It’s a bit gutting when a request is denied, my most recent request was denied too and the email didn’t give a reason just contained the NetGalley recommended reasons for publishers to give 🤦🏻‍♀️

  1. Great article!

    Those books sound really interesting! Curious to hear what you think of them after you read them.

    I recently finished reading the sequel to You by Caroline Kepnes. The Lifetime series so was well adapted for TV.

    Currently reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Read about 60 pages so far, and so far it’s really good!
