YAY!!

On Tuesday I listed some MG reads I am looking forward to.  Yesterday I got one of them in the mail--I had won it in a contest! 

I love requesting and getting ARCS, but I love winning them even more.  You see, when I win one, the pressure to get it read and reviewed in a timely fashion is off.  This January I made myself a goal to not request ARCs but I could request them from NetGalley.  Well, that was before there were quite so many publishers on there and before I started getting auto-approved for things.  My Nook feels heavy with all the great ARCs I have!  But the problem with egalleys is that they expire after a certain amount of time.So, if I really want to read and review it I have to get on it! 

When I win a book the pressure is off and I can read and review it without a time limit.  But this one, I might just bump to the top of my TBR because I am so excited to get it read!

What's at the top of your TBR today?

  1. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks which will be published on May 22 and is the first of 4 books I have with May 22 release dates. It is only on top because Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock which releases May 8 hasn't gotten to my house yet. I love Amazon Vine but should look at publication dates more closely before requesting an ARC.

    1. Amazon Vine sounds so cool but I already feel like I have too much "assigned" reading! The catch 22 of book blogging!!
      And four May 22 books?! Wow, good luck!! Read on!

    1. I am so excited for it but think I am going to wait for this summer to read it. The cover makes me think that it would be a good summer book!
