WRAP-UP POST: 2013 NETGALLEY KNOCKOUT CHALLENGE



Three months ago, I signed-up to participate in the 2013 NetGalley Knockout Challenge hosted by Goldilox and the Three Weres. At the time, I had quite a lot of books for review in my NetGalley folder, and took up this challenge as motivation to finish them all as close as possible to their release dates. During the past three months I requested and received more books for review from NetGalley and ended up with more books than what I had at the start of this challenge, as well as one other non-NetGalley book I received for review. So, without further ado, below is a complete list of books I received specifically for this challenge (you can link to the Goodreads descriptions for all these books in the right sidebar of my blog).


A Cat Called Dog ~ Jem Vanston
Chasing Hope ~ Kathryn Cushman
Crazy Rich ~ Jerry Oppenheimer
Data Runner ~ Sam A. Patel
Hindsight ~ Sarah Belle
Ink (Paper Gods, #1) ~ Amanda Sun
Jumper ~ Jeff LaFerney
Notable (Awkward, #3) ~ Marni Bates
Oddkins ~ Dean R. Koontz
Pharaoh ~ David Gibbins
Plague Ship ~ Leonard Goldberg
Rumor Central, #2 ~ ReShonda Tate Billingsley
Streaks of Blue ~ Jack Chaucer
Scorched ~ Mari Mancusi
Whistling Past the Graveyard ~ Susan Crandall


As you can see, I’ve added a lot of books to the list of books I had at the start of this challenge. You can view my original post for this challenge here. Of course, these weren’t the only books I read and reviewed the past three months, but at least now my NetGalley folder is much emptier.

My thanks goes out to Christen who set-up this challenge and thus motivated me to not let my NetGalley books pile up on me. I hope she’ll have another challenge for us soon!

Good job. I think that even if you get a few done and reviewed. It's a good thing to get rid of the old, and make room for the new. I didn't knock off as many as I wanted. Oh well.
