My Approved NetGalley Requests (TBR)

My Approved NetGalley TBR (1)

good objects

Hey guys!
So over the weekend, I went really insane and requested about 10 titles from NetGalley. I’m usually used to rejections; I live in Lebanon and it’s really hard to find a publisher that approves reviewers living outside the US, Canada, Australia, or Europe. But I hit the request button anyway. I was a little pissed off, because of the out-of-region thingie, and I definitely did not expect my phone to go into berserk-mode on Monday and show me this:

Some titles were actually from publishers that are out of my region, which really surprised me. I was literally in tears; happy ones at first. But then frustration took over, because I had no idea how I was going to be able to balance my exams, actual books, and NetGalley ARCs, all at the same time. But then I took a deep breath, checked the Archive and Publication dates and made a schedule; I have two ARCs for this month, and the others will be read in July. Although I feel like shit for what I put myself through, I’m actually SO FRIGGIN EXCITED to read these titles. So here’s a list of books I requested and will be reading during these two months. I’ve already read and reviewed The Butterfly Project  and Sugar & Gold, both by Emma Scott. And I’m currently reading a historical fiction ARC.

Ready to Run (I Do, I Don't, #1)


Ready to Run

Jordan Carpenter thinks she’s finally found the perfect candidate for Jilted, a new dating show about runaway grooms: Luke Elliott, a playboy firefighter who’s left not one but three brides at the altar. The only problem? Luke refuses to answer Jordan’s emails or return her calls. Which is how she ends up on a flight to Montana to recruit him in person. It’s not Manhattan but at least the locals in Lucky Hollow seem friendly . . . except for Luke, who’s more intense—and way hotter—than the slick womanizer Jordan expected.Eager to put the past behind him, Luke has zero intention of following this gorgeous, fast-talking city girl back to New York. But before he can send her packing, Jordan’s everywhere: at his favorite bar, the county fair, even his exes’ book club. Annoyingly, everyone in Lucky Hollow seems to like her—and deep down, she’s starting to grow on him too. But the more he fights her constant pestering, the more Luke finds himself wishing that Jordan would kick off her high heels and make herself comfortable in his arms.

Falling for Trouble (Librarians in Love #2)

Falling for Trouble

Liam Byrd loves Halikarnassus, New York. He loves its friendliness, its nosiness, the vibrant library at the center of it all. And now that Joanna Green is home, the whole town sizzles. A rebel like her stirs up excitement, action, desire–at least in Liam.
Joanna never thought she’d have to come back to her dull, tiny fishbowl of a hometown ever again. She almost had a record deal for her all-girl rock band. She almost had it made in L.A. And then her deal went sour and her granny broke her leg . . . and now here she is, running into everybody’s favorite librarian every time she heads to a dive bar or catches up with old friends.
He has charm, he has good taste in music–and the sight of him in running shorts is dangerously distracting. But when he loves her old town and she can’t wait to check out, their new romance is surely destined for the book drop…

    Some great titles! NetGalley can be fun, especially when you go on a requesting spree. But then the consequences can make one super stressed out! I always set up a schedule and make sure I know what books I’m reading each month, which really helps! Have fun with you reading and good luck with your exams! ❤

    Having too many books to read is a problem. But a problem that I secretly love having. 😀 I just put like five books on hold and I know they will all arrive at the same time and I will have a slight meltdown all while basking in the knowledge that I am surrounded by beautiful books.

    FIRST OFF, ALL THE VERY BEST FOR YOUR EXAMS. I KNOW THAT YOU CAN KILL EM. Secondly, I totally get your frustration. All of the books that actually release in the U.S. A are released later in India. LIKE WAAAYYY LATER. And I’m like, “WHyyyyY?” 😂

    It always scares me when I get approved for a title on Netgalley, because I always go a little crazy and just request everything thinking there’s no way I’ll be approved for even a quarter of them. And then I get approved for almost all of them – and what’s worse, then I have to READ them. It’s hard, but I do this to myself!!
    These books look awesome, good luck!! 😀

    Netgalley does that to you all the time…you’re torn between being ridiculously excited but also crying because there are so many in a short time period. BUT YAYYYYYYYYYYYY! They all sound super good, Nadwa, and I can’t wait to see your reviews on them. Here’s hoping this will totally be the norm now for you and Netgalley! 😀 😀 😀

    Ohhh, I totally understand how you feel! It’s always so exciting to get approved for Netgalley titles but then you realise just HOW MANY books you have to read! I am still suffering and trying to catch up on all the books I’ve requested when I first signed up for Netgalley in MARCH. It’s hard but I’m managing XD
    I really hope you’ll enjoy all of these and don’t stress yourself out if you won’t manage to read all of these! 💜

    Haha, well I’m glad you got some books finally! Yeah, I’ve had this happen a little too but it’s usually requests I made a while ago and suddenly like three days in a row I get approved for one or two and suddenly I have a ton of books to read xD
