Mid-Month NetGalley Check-In – January 2022

It has been a very busy couple months since the last time I did a NetGalley check-in. I’ve been approved for a ton of new books, and these next few months are going to be filled with ARC reading as a result. You can see where I was two months ago in my last check-in post. My feedback ratio has dropped a bit more since then to 60%. I’ve completed 28 ARC reviews out of the total 47 for which I have been approved. I now have 18 unread books available to read on my shelf, which is the most I’ve ever had at one time. The reviews I completed in the last two months were Forging a Nightmare, Jade Legacy, Tethered Spirits, Daughter of the Moon Goddess, The Beholden, and Engines of Empire.

The books below are those currently needing to be read on my shelf. I plan to read and review the books in bold before my next NetGalley check-in on February 14, 2022.

  1. One of my goals this year is actually to reach the 100% ratio on NetGalley, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Currently my ratio is at 93% and I have 6 books to read and review. Since 5 of the books are getting published by the end of March, my goal is to get through all 6 by the end of April. My fear is that one of my 11 pending titles will get approved just as I finish reading one of my last few books! But if that does happen, I’ll manage!

    Best of luck getting through your 18 titles! I hope you enjoy them all!

  2. I’ve just got my reviews back up to 80% so the sun is to keep it there if I can. 😀
    I have just finished Circus Infinite and really enjoyed it although I felt the ending was a bit too neat. Happy reading

    • Ikr! It was a bit daunting seeing them all together but also really exciting because they all look so good. I think the first half of 2022 is definitely going to have some great reading with all of these. 🙂

  3. I’m at 49% and really struggling to raise my feedback ratio! I’ve been approved for some really great books so I’m not worried worried, but I’m doing my best to hit 80% by the end of the year!

    • I’ve struggled with my ratio, as well, but I’ve made some progress. I’m hoping to hit 80% by the end of the year too. I haven’t noticed the ratio impacting my approvals that much either. So, as much as I’d love to see the number go up, it hasn’t been that much of a hindrance.
