What’s On My Netgalley Shelf #1 | Someone Please Stop Me

Hello again honeybees! Today I’m giving you a look at all the books waiting to be read and reviewed on my Netgalley shelf, which honestly is way more than I anticipated. This post is not an ad for Netgalley, but 100% sponsored by my bad coping mechanisms.

I think this is a pretty shelf explanatory post (yes, I’m THAT person in quarantine) so let’s just jump into it.

Blazewrath Games by Amparo Ortiz

Release Date: October 6, 2020

Why yes, I am still screaming about this one. I somehow got chosen to be a host on the upcoming Caffine Book Tour and when this hit my inbox I DIED. I’m getting blessed with these Latinx ARCs this year and I’m so thankful! I look forward to reading this Puerto Rican fantasy with dragonssss!!!!

Roaring by Lindsey Duga

Release Date: August 3, 2020

When Entangled Teen pitched this as The Great Gatsby meets This Savage Song on their Instagram, I rushed to Netgalley and requested it. I love those two books! Gatsby is especially meaningful to me, and I didn’t know I needed a mix of these two books until right now.

The Photographer of Mauthausen by Salva Rubio, Illustrated by Pedro J. Colombo and Aintzane Landa

Release Date: November 11, 2020

The cover of this one got me. The illustration has so much worry and I was pulled in by the mystery of it. This seems like it could be very hard hitting, and I’m excited to read it very soon. This is a retelling of the true story of a photographer who was imprisoned in a concentration camp and takes pictures that can prove the Nazi war crimes.

Vitality by Crysta Levere

Release Date: August 25, 2020

Oh, this book. What good things do I have to day about it? Well, the cover is pretty. I started reading this one and am trying to read as much as I can before I DNF. Paranormal romance is my one true love but this morbid and grotesque book missed the mark entirely. I had high hopes but was very disappointed and disgusted, to be honest.

Ever Cursed by Corey Ann Haydu

Release Date: August 1, 2020

I was supposed to be on the FFBC tour for this but well, you know what happened to them. (Please, for everything that is good and just, don’t work with them when they decide to reopen). Anyway, the publisher still sent me the ARC and I’m still planning to read and review it. If I remember correctly this is about witches and a sapphic romance? Possibly.

Sia Martinez and the Moonlit Beginning of Everything by Raquel Vasquez Gilliland

Release Date: August 11, 2020

In all honesty, I saw my last name and was drawn to the book. Then I read “for fans of Aristotle and Dante” and I never pressed a button faster! This book just sounds so fun but with important themes, and I’m excited to read about Sia’s adventures with aliens and immigration.

And thatโ€™s that folx. Do you have any of these ARCs? Is there any on this list youโ€™re excited for? Have you been requesting too many things on Netgalley or buying too many books too? Please do tell!

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post. Please consider following for more posts like this! You can also find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Goodreads, buy me a cup of coffee on ko-fi, or you can buy books I no longer want on Depop. Thanks again for reading! Bye for now honeybees.

Love, Destiny

        Ooh, what’s ARC August? I haven’t given up on my stack, it’s just that I can’t stop clicking request and they keep sending me lovely shiny books despite my woeful feedback ratio! Wonderful problems ๐Ÿ˜‰

        I agree, itโ€™s a great problem to have! ARC August is a readathon/reading challenge where people commit to reading as many ARCs as they can. So really it just depends on what you have on your shelf. I have maybe 8 so my goal would be 8 books. I have a friend with 40 unread ARCs so her goal would be as close to 40 as possible
