A Peek Into My Netgalley Shelf- Give Feedback pt. 1

Hey everyone!

Look, I know I’m kind of taking the easy route… and yes, I am being slightly (ever so slightly) lazy.

But I can’t come up with any other topics, let alone non-book-related, so we’re stuck with this. I’ve seen other bloggers do this, so I thought I;d give it a try.

Do you guys know what Netgalley is? It’s an online eARC service where you request titles that you’d like to review (for free) and if you get accepted, you have to review the book whenever you can. Be warned: if you don’t download the book before it gets archived, you can’t review it and your reviewed versus accepted percentage will go down! I made that mistake once. *hangs head in shame* But we’ll only get to a few today- so I’ll just get through my ‘give feedback’ shelf, probably.

Here’s my Netgalley shelf! >>>

These are books that I’ve downloaded but haven’t given feedback for yet. There are only two because just yesterday I made my monthly Netgalley sweep where I review all the books that I read in the past month, just to clean it out a little.

Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center

Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she’s seen her fair share of them, and she’s a total pro at other people’s tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own.

The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie’s old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren’t exactly thrilled to have a “lady” on the crew—even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie, who doesn’t seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can’t think about that. Because love is girly, and it’s not her thing. And don’t forget the advice her old captain gave her: Never date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping…and it means risking it all—the only job she’s ever loved, and the hero she’s worked like hell to become.

I requested this because of the cover (ooh!), the author (bestselling), and the synopsis.

Also, I requested it when I first got Netgalley and I requested, like, 50. So. Yeah. I was just requesting basically everything, haha. TIP: don’t do that. Literally. Bad idea, and you’ll be swamped once you get accepted for some. And yes, you will be accepted, so don’t make my mistakes, children.

Lily’s Just Fine:

I chose this book because the story is set in Scotland (I haven’t read many UK books that aren’t English) and the cover was enticing. Also, contemporary. I was slightly obsessed with contemporary when I requested this, but now I’m a bit worried that it will be too romcom-y and really cheesy. Oh well.

This was such a pathetic post, lol. I’m so sorry!! But we can do the rest later. Now it’s time to go read!

  1. Ohh.. I like hearing more about Netgalley because I have never used it and honestly don’t have much of an idea about what it looks like but I do think it is a super cool resource and love that people can be sent books!! AMAZING!!
    Lily’s Just Fine sounds interesting– I like the title. Plus it is set in Scotland– I love that!! I know what you mean about being worried it is to cheesy because I worry about that too but when you are in the right mood I find that I love a good cheesy story 😂
    Anyway I hope you enjoy these books!!

    1. You should try it! It’s all eARCs which don’t appeal to some people, but you can get accepted for books that you wouldn’t get a phys copy for!
      Yes, the Scottish rep is greattt! Ofc the good ol cheese is for brunch tomorrow! (Um idk what that was sorry haha)
      Thank you for the comment!!

  2. It’s not lazy!
    It’s just conserving your energy!
    These both look so good, and I honestly did the same thing where I requested so many, and hated the majority of them but was too scared to be mean?
