My Netgalley/Edelweiss Shelves are a Mess {Pt. 3}

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these… and there’s a reason for that…

Because for a while there, I was getting denied left and right, back to back. It was coming to the point where I got my Netgalley percentage rate… thingy was at a whopping 99%.

So you know what happens when that happens? I just start requesting for the fun of it thinking I’ll never be accepted again and I might as well just try, right?

Wrong.

So, story-time over, let’s look at my disaster we call my shelves.

The Line Between – Tosca Lee || Not a big story here: I had just set my gaze on one of her other books I own- The Progeny… it was a true impulse request.

Ragnarok Unwound – Kristin Jacques || This was one of those read now books on the site and the cover is really pretty… keep in mind at the time no one was accepting my request don’t judge me.

Spin the Dawn – Elizabeth Lim || I requested this one when they decided to start accepting me again T_T Look, there was a lot of hype with this one and truly I wasn’t thinking they’d accept my request and they did, but #noregrets

Never Contented Things – Sarah Porter || I’d read her previous book Vassa in the Night a while agobut this premise is so up my alley. Two siblings entrapped by faeries, sibling relationships in general, pretty cover… yeah.

Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan  || I’m actually on the blog tour for this! So… look forward to that?

The Raven’s Tale – Cat Winters || To everyone who went through that goth phase in middle school for me and highschool where we were weirdly obsessed with Mr. Poe… I may have gotten out of said phase, but my love for Poe is infinite. 

Dealing in Dreams – Lillian Rivera || Again for family relationship and badasss older sisters willing to do the worst to keep their loved ones safe, it may be sapphic I’m not sure but I hope?

To Best the Boys – Mary Weber || This was an impulsive request and it’s something I think I can enjoy at least at a banal level. But the premise does sound promising.

The Red Labyrinth – Meredith Tate || See above answer

Blood Heir – Amélie Wen Zhao || Hell yeah I jumped on the bandwagon when Negalley glitched and made this available to everyone. NO REGRETS. But I was highly anticipating this anyways, Anastasia retellings will always sell me, just a heads up.


Descendant of the Crane – Joan He || Chinese-inspired Game of Thrones. That’s it.

With the Fire on High – Elizabeth Acevedo || If I haven’t shoved The Poet X in your face, GO READ IT?? ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS OF 2018?? So… I damn near cried happy tears when I got this one.

Romanov – Nadine Brandes || Another known fact: huge Anastasia fan. That’s it.

The Missing Season – Gillian French || The premise reminded me of Sawkill Girls, but less queer. Yet, I really liked the premise of Sawkill Girls, so it’s on the positive quadrant that I’ll enjoy this.

The Wise and the Wicked – Rebecca Podos || Magical realism! Premonitions! Death? Family! All sounds like my jam! Hopefully it makes me cry.

The Language of Fire: Joan of Arc Reimagined – Stephanie Hemphill || This is told entirely in verse, which is a solid denominator in me requesting it… but again, I wasn’t getting accepted for anything, so… I went trigger happy.

Hello Girls – Emily Henry & Brittany Cavallaro || I make this known often, but Emily Henry is one of my favorite authors. And though I didn’t really care for Cavallro’s A Study in Charlotte book I stopped at book one, I still have faith that this duo will blow my mind. 

Sixteen. Books. SOMEONE SAVE ME. But on the plus side, my Netgalley Feedback Ratio is at an even 80%

So… how’s your shelves looking? Do you have any of these? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I’m too scared to request more than about five at a time, and I’m still trying to figure out Edelweiss! I currently have just three books on my NetGalley shelves- The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer, Out East by John Glynn, and The Invited by Jennifer McMahon. But I’m SUPER PUMPED to read them!

  2. I am so far behind in my ARC reading that I’ve taken to only requesting books that I really REALLY want to read. Which is still way too many. The oldest books in my Netgalley/Edelweiss queue are from 2013. Yes…six years old. I’m working hard to read everything ‘current’ (a year or less) and then catch up on my old stuff.

    I did a lot of the same thing when I first started … just requested left and right because I was getting rejected so much. Then they started coming in and now it’s hard to keep current with new books and still get reviews of old books out there!

  3. I always request books, thinking I’m going to be rejected. I’m just cynical that way. Which is why I’m always surprised and often let out an “oh no” when I do get an email saying I was accepted. There are so many amazing sounding titles here, so I guess there is a bright side to letting loose every once in a while? I have Dealing in Dreams that I need to get to and am really looking forward to it. Happy reading (and hopefully not stressing too much with these)!

  4. GIRL I think everyone squealed hard with that NetGalley glitch. I also grabbed a copy too before they changed it. I also got Spin the Dawn as well 🙂 both of them sound freaking amazing! I also got another ARC you’ve mentioned that I fangirled hard about the other day
