Eating ARCs

Hi there!

Have you ever been on NetGalley and stared at aaaaaall the galleys, thinking "oh my god, I don't want to go through 30 pages to have something to read"? Have you ever gotten your Galley Grab newsletter and stared at the adult fiction galleys, and went "ummmm. I'll look at this later"?

Well, this is where I come in. Once a month, I'll be sharing a list of e-ARCs that have peaked picked piqued my interest, that are from popular authors or that I've seen recommended all around Goodreads/the blogosphere.

Ready? Here we go.

Aaaaand that's *cough* all. See you all next month for another ARC post! And please, if I've missed anything, let me know. Or just tell me what you grabbed/requested :)

Oh, and thank you for the NetGalley and Galley Grab folks for enabling people who don't live in the US to get ARCs. I don't think I can express my love for you guys adequately.

I read A Long, Long Sleep a few months ago from NetGalley. It was pretty good. I'm not usually a fan of sci-fi, but that one worked for me.

Is that a new cover for Spellbound? That cover doesn't look like the one I've seen floating around. It's still cool though.

Thanks for the post! It's nice having everything featured in one place.

This post is so full of win! I was wondering where people were getting Love Story from! I never look at the adult titles. Oops! THank you :)

I have Legacy, Wildefire, Forbidden, and Blood Red Road that I still have to read and I just grabbed Love Story and Possession. I probably won't get a chance to read Forbidden, Blood Red Road, or Possession though before they expire.

I've read Cleopatra Confesses and The Near Witch. Both were really good!

Thanks for listing these! I was approved for GG but haven't gotten a newsletter yet. I had the links for a few of their titles from off-newsletter, but Virtuosity or Clean, so I appreciate your linking to them. Hoping the first newsletter comes through soon...

Do they list all the previous titles available in the newsletter, btw? I hope so...haven't read a few of the others yet.

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

You. Are. A. Life. Saver!

This is the perfectest (not a word!) thing in the whole whole world!!!!

I didn't even know that Possession and Love Story were in the Galley Grab letter because I don't go through the adult titles!

Thank you for this amazingness (not a word!)

I want to buy you flowers, and chocolates, and of course books.
This is the most amazing post. Ever.
I'm following you now, cause your awesomeness is just epic.

I'm sorry, I just have to comment again! I've come back to this post 4 times since I first saw it.

I still don't understand how you got to be so intelligent. My mind is blown at your awesomeness!

This post is perfection. YOU are perfection.

Celesta said...

You are FANTASTIC!!! I've been trying to get my mitts on "A long long sleep" and "Love Story" for AGES! Love story wasn't that obvious on the galleygrab and Netgalley can sometimes be a butt when I am trying to search for something specific. Thank you SOOO much for sharing!!!!

Fic Talk said...

SO INFORMATIVE. Thanks so much for doing a post like this. I've got most of the books listed, but didn't know how good the others appeared to be until you mentioned them. Can't wait for next month's update!

Wow you are awesome! This post is great. How did you find Swear on GalleyGrab if it wasn't in the newsletter? It was one I was really hoping to read, now I can. Thank you so much!

supercalifragiliciousreads said...

love ur post! i just started blogging and didnt realized all the arcs you could get with book-reviewing until now!

DeSeRt RoSe said...

I'll be looking forward to your ARC recommendations. Since I get overwhelmed when I visit NetGalley and just don't know what to choose, they are so many interesting books there!!
Now at least I could focus on these.. Thanks :)

Read.Breathe.Relax. said...

I agree with you on so many of these- Like Spellbound, Ultraviolet and Angel Burn! Now that I see these books, I feel so behind on my reviewing! Agh!
