It’s a new month and I wanted to take another look at my NetGalley and ARC situation! I haven’t been ahead on ARCs lately but I’m also not really behind….
Most of the ARCs I have on my NetGalley shelf are older, like from the beginning of the year, mainly January, April and June. I’m really proud of myself because I’ve only taken on two new ARCs (!!!) and haven’t browsed NetGalley in a hot minute. I’m trying really hard to squeeze in my backlisted reads and my partner copies rather than requesting new books.
My rating did go up one point since my last update so that’s good! I read and reviewed two ARCs since I last shared my NetGalley shelf which helped me get a little bit ahead, so I’m hoping I can keep that up and knock out another one or two before my next update.

Still On My Shelf
1) His & Hers
Pub Date: July 28, 2020
I just got this as an audiobook through NetGalley’s new app (which is shit, by the way) and I’m looking forward to picking it back up. I actually started it later in June and only got like three chapters in, but so far the narration was on point. It used three narrators; his, hers, and the killer’s, which uses a really creepy voice disguiser. This has gotten some seriously rave reviews from my favorite bloggers so I knew I had to snag this one up, and I’m really looking forward to finishing it! I even have it on my August TBR!

Okay so I got an email from my friends over at Wednesday Books (the geniuses behind Wicked Saints) and when I saw this was an upcoming gothic romantic fantasy I absolutely could not say no! First of all, the title is cool as hell. Second of all, gothic? Yes. Always. Third of all, romance? HELL yes. Seriously this one sounds so good and I’m really excited about it. I want to wait to read it until closer to release date, at least in January or something, which will give me time to catch up on my other ARCs!

I requested this one at the end of July and haven’t heard back yet, but I looooooove the premise of this and I’ve really been enjoying historical romance lately so I would love an ARC of this. If not, I think I’ll probably just get it when it comes out! I read another Lenora Bell novel awhile ago, For the Duke’s Eyes Only, and I absolutely adored it. This sounds like the perfect mix of romance and a touch of gothic spookiness, so I’m really looking forward to the start of this new series from her!
Not much has changed since my last update! I was able to knock off a few of my newer ARCs, which was great, so now I just need to be able to knock off the ones from the beginning of the year!
I’m planning on reading His & Hers this month and I don’t have any ARCs for August or September, so I’m planning to add at least one backlisted ARC per month until I’m caught up! I technically only have four for the January-July months so that ~should~ be easy….. keyword here being should.
What ARCs are you on the lookout for? What are you looking forward to most in the next couple of months?
