One of my (newfound) favorite things about being a book blogger/semi-legitimate journalist is NetGalley.
I freak out over books in general, and not-yet-published-for-the-masses books especially. Every time I’m approved for a new NetGalley book, I do a little happy dance.
That’s not hyperbole. I dance. Every time.
So, every so often here at SeeSavRead, I’ll post a NetGalley Nooner- which books I’ve got piling up in my To Read account, which I’m currently reading, and which I’m superduper excited about.
First, the SuperDuper Excited About one:
I first heard about Jesse Andrews’ debut novel, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl, from That Cover Girl’s AuthorThoughts post. Brilliant cover? Check. Hilarious author interview? Check. Much capital-letter-texting to That Cover Girl when I downloaded the galley? Supercheck. I trust TCG’s book opinions implicitly (even if we sometimes disagree when LOVING/LOATHING some books), so I believe this is going to be a great read.
The Currently Reading one:
The Wild Book, by Margarita Engle. This is a good one. It is musical, almost. It reminds me, in a way, of one of my most favorite books: In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julia Alvarez. But, a review will be forthcoming this week, so I can’t spill much more than that now.
The Piling Up one:
I started reading this one, and highlighted the everloving mess out of it within the first three chapters. Kathi Lipp presents The Get Yourself Organized Project as an alternative to all the other Get Organized books out there, and I stand by her 100%. I haven’t finished it yet (or, ok, started any of the 21 projects she lays out yet), but I am really also pretty excited about this one.
These are just the first three of my fourteen current NetGalley books.
Oh, the dancing never ends.
