Netgalley TBR | May 2020

Although previously talked about this on my blog, I decided to do a specific post only about my recent Netgalley haul. As you may or may not know, I recently went ham while requesting my Netgalley arcs. To be honest, I wasn’t active for a long time and my feedback rate was quite low so I ddn’t think I’d get approved for most of these. Interestingly, I got approved for a lot of books and although I’ve already read a few, there are still a lot more to get through.

The main problem is not ony Netgalley books, it’s also books from publishers and other amazing books on my tbr that are coming out. You all know the saying: so many books so little time! And it couldn’t be more true for me since at the moment (and also for the next many weeks) I will be busy with exams, work and other stuff so I don’t know how much time I’ll have for reading.

Even though I joke about having a lot of books to review, I am very grateful for receiving so many books. So thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with so many books, hopefully I read and review them soon. This is my Netgalley tbr:

Live Like Legends by Kate Cornell

Expected publication: June 1st, 2020

This book isn’t technically a tbr since I just started reading it this morning but I still decided to list it here. So far it’s pretty interesting and as I’ve already said in one of my previous posts, it’s a fantasy YA romance and I haven’t read one of these in a long time.

Up Close and Personal by Kathryn Freeman

Expected publication: June 12th, 2020

Although I was planning to read this a while ago, I still didn’t. It’s a pretty interesting story since is about this famous celebrity and his bodyguard. My last review is also a book about a female bodyguard and I quite enjoyed that theme so I believe I will love this as well.

A Duke, the Lady and a Baby by Vanessa Riley

Expected publication: June 30th, 2020

To be honest, when I was requesting it I thought it would be a cute and funny regency romance. But only after I was approved I realized it deals with much more difficult topics. The reviews are mixed and a lot of people said it wasn’t what they expected but I do have to see for myself.

A Sunset in Sydney by Sandy Barker

Expected publication: July 3rd, 2020

Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to read this in time before the publishing. I can be a stupid little girl at times and I didn’t realize this was a third book in the series. I sometimes start books without reading the description and I wonder what would happen if I started this, not knowing it’s a third book.

Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen Children’s Stories) by Jane Austen and Gemma Barder

Expected publication: June 9th, 2020

I don’t think I’ve ever read or seen Pride and Prejudice which must be a shock because it is a classic. But I have to admit I’m not really a fan of classics, probably because they remind me of high schools where we had to read about 15 of them in a school year. But since this is a book for children I believe it’s going to be interesting. Plus, there are illustrations and they look really cute!

ROMeANTICALLY CHALLENGED by Marina Adair

Expected publication: July 28th, 2020

This is also a contemporary romance (who’d say lol) and it’s set in Rome which I think I’ll find interesting. It’s also about a woman who swears off men because everytime she falls in love her s/o leaves her and after that finds his true love. Isn’t that the wackiest synopsis ever. I think this is going to be super funny and I can’t wait to read it.

If there are any books here that you’ve already read please comment down below your opinion (spoiler-free please!). Also, if you’ve recently read or purchased any interesting books be sure to share them with me. I’m always looking for good books to read.

By the way, I must admit I hate this new post editor. I just cannot work with it. It’s much more difficult than it was before (I spend an hour only editing this post). I’m so disappointed.

Happy reading!
