NetGalley: I’m not drowning yet
I joined NetGalley in 2011 or 2012 when I first started book blogging and at the time I figured that given my small blog I wouldn’t get any of these requests accepted so I may as well request a lot in hopes of getting one.

Since I’ve been taking book blogging a lot more seriously this year now I’m done with education and settled in at work I thought it would be no harm if I revisited the site.

That felt great.

Though I must admit the, uh, shelf was still pretty full.

I then requested a few.

So lets see what the current books are that I should be reading soon.

Where has 2017 gone?

How is it already almost July? I have no idea.

It took me way longer than it should’ve to write this because I had idea for what I wanted to include but the moment I came to typing my mind went blank.

Brilliant.

But I have succeeded and made a post, so keep reading to see my goals for this year.
