Netgalley Knockout Challenge: Kick-Off Post


Netgalley Knockout is a reading challenge for the month of August hosted by Goldilox and the Three Weres. The goal is to "knockout"some of the egalleys we have laying around from Netgalley and Edelweiss. As I am only a member of Netgalley, I will be focusing on those galleys, but I am also including some of my indie galleys/ARCs because I have quite a few of those I want to get through as well and they are just as important to me. 

Here is a list of the egalleys I have piled up. There is no way I'll be getting through them all,, but these are ones I would like to finish or get to this month. This does not reflect my entire review queue as I am overwhelmed with it at the moment. I've recently closed Wickedly Bookish to review submissions in order to catch up on what I've gotten behind on while dealing with our current family emergency. The order of this list is in no way meant to suggest priority of one book over another, although some will be completed first because I am involved in a corresponding book tour.

Thank you to Netgalley and all the authors who have provided me with review copies of their books. You all are wonderful and I promise I will get to you!!!
