My aim for #NetGalleyMonth was to clear my shelf and get a 100% ratio. I did request a few books during the month and some aren't out until October/November. So whilst I've done a lot of reading, those reviews are scheduled for nearer their release and I've fell behind a little bit on reviews recently! Still though I read them, left feedback via NetGalley and achieved the 100% ratio that I wanted.
It's incredibly easy to just request every book you see, but I'm being very selective in future with review copies so I can concentrate on purchased books. I don't want my NetGalley shelf to become daunting as it can leave you almost resenting the quantity of books you have got to read. Below is the image of the books I had to read at the start of the month, then listed below are the ones I requested during the month.
