Mid-Month NetGalley Check-In – March 2022

I’ve been trying to do better. I really have. I swear I haven’t been requesting as many books, but I’ve been (luckily) getting approved for most of what I request. So, despite my best efforts, my feedback ratio hasn’t changed much. I’ve been approved for a ton of great new books, including some of my most anticipated releases of the year. I’m pretty excited about it even if it means reading them on a faster schedule to get the reviews done before publication. I read and reviewed five books, and I’ve been approved for eight new books in the last month. I’ve also read two more books whose reviews haven’t been published yet. You can see where I was last month in my most recent check-in post. My feedback ratio thankfully managed to climb one percent to 61%. It went up as far as 63% at one point, but after a few new approvals it dropped back down again. I’ve completed 37 ARC reviews out of the total 53 for which I have been approved. I now have 23 books available to review on my shelf, which is once again the most I’ve ever had at one time.

The books below are those currently needing to be reviewed on my shelf. I plan to read and review the books in bold before my next NetGalley check-in on April 15, 2022.

  1. There are some brilliant books on here and a few that I need to try and find!!! It took me a determined effort to get my review rating above 80% but once you’re there, it’s not too difficult to keep it. Keep reading and you’ll get there.

    • Yeah. I’m hoping after I finish a slew of them in the next few months I’ll get there. I have mixed emotions every time I get a new approval. lol. I get excited, and then I think, damn…now my percentage will go back down again. 🙂 I’m sure I’ll get there, though. And in the grand scheme of things I guess its not that big of deal since the whole point of having above 80% is to get approved easier, and I’m not really having difficulty with that at the moment.
