I wanted to share the books on my TBR list that I have received from NetGalley.
At NetGalley you can request to review books, and if you are accepted you will receive a digital copy for free. You will not always be accepted (especially if the publisher has reached the limit of copies to give out), but the more books you review, the higher your chance of being accepted is. You are also under no obligation to review a book and there is no time limit either. The only thing you have to do is download the book before it is archived because once it is archived you can no longer download and review it. Even though all the books I received from NetGalley are mysteries and thrillers, there are tons of categories to choose from including general fiction, young adult, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and nonfiction. The books on my TBR list from NetGalley include:
Bring Her Home by David Bell: I have started reading this book. In Bring Her Home, Bill’s daughter Summer and her best friend Haley disappear and days later they are found in a park.
