Step One: Face the Problem Netgalley-style!

Don’t people always say that the first step in overcoming a problem is to accept that you have a problem? Well, as a reviewer, the bane of my existance are unread Netgalley books. They are so easy to request – their wonderful catalogue is just a click away. You can request as much as you want, and more often than not you get accepted.

Fast-forward a few months: you’re buried alive by Netgalley files that just don’t get read.

I severely cut down on my Netgalley requests after a few months, but a few sneak in anyway. As of today, I have a total of 28 unread Netgalley books. Overall I don’t think that’s so bad – the bad thing is that I still have ARCs of 2011 releases *hangs head in shame*.

I’m going to list them all here as a reminder that I still have to read these books, old to new.

  1. A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
  2. The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
  3. Lost Voices by Sarah Porter
  4. Infernal Devices (???)
  5. A Clockwork Christmas by VA
  6. Dead of Night by Lynn Viehl
  7. Interrupted by Rachel Coker
  8. Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazaer

So how many unread Netgalley books do you have? Have you read any of these books? Which one should I read first?
