Reading Update: November 2018

Monthly Update | Nightcap Books

My goal for the end of the year is to catch up on reading ARCs and library books. This month I was good about not requesting many ARCs. I received four eARCs, and have read one of them. I’ve also slowed down on borrowing books from the library. In fact, I only have one book checked out right now, and I should finish it today. I do have hold requests on another four books, but even that is a lot less than I normally have.

Books

I’ve completed most of my reading goals this year! Still working on a few challenges, but I should be able to finish them over the next couple of months. I was pretty good about not requesting ARCs this month, but I did end up buying a bunch of books at a local book fair. It’s hard to pass up good deals on books, but I have no idea when I’ll get to read them.

NETGALLEY & EDELWEISS STATS

As of this month (September), I have been on Netgalley for one year. I rarely used it when I first signed up, but now I’m on there all the time looking for new books. In my first year using Netgalley, I reviewed 86 books. My goal is to have 100 books reviewed by the end of the year, and it looks like that goal will be met. I signed up for Edelweiss a couple of months ago, and haven’t started using it much. Hopefully, I get the hang of it soon and start reviewing more books from there.

Books and Coffee

I have met most of my reading goals for this year. I read a lot more over the summer than I had planned on reading. I have some new personal reading goals I want to achieve, but, first, I want to finish what I’ve started. So, that means I’m trying to be a little more focused on what I’m reading to check off some of the reading goals I’ve set for myself.

Weekly Wrap-Ups

This month I started doing a weekly update about the books on my radar. For a more detailed look at the books I’m reading, check out my weekly wrap-ups every Friday.
