I have decided to try something different for my monthly to read list. Instead of listing out specific books that I may (or most likely do not) get to, I am going to give myself monthly challenges instead. Last month I decided to do 30 books in 30 days. You can read about that here. For February I have decided that I am going to work on my NetGalley books. I need to get my review percentage up to 80%.
I actually have not been on NetGalley for very long. Even so, I have 15 books that I need to review. Most of the books I have are non fiction. I tend to read fiction when I read non fiction, so I will have some non NetGalley books read at the end of the month also. I am guessing there will be a lot of Patricia Briggs.
In order to get 80% of my backlog finished I would need to read 12 books in February. Since these are mostly non fiction books I do not see this happening. I think a more realistic goal will be 8 books from my NetGalley account. This will also probably mean that there will be another NetGalley catch up at some point later this year.
Some books I expect to finish this month are
Sugar by James Walvin (already started)
Educated by Tara Westover
Mentalligence by Kristen Lee (already started)
Don't Rush Me by Jackie May (already started)
Quirky by Melissa A Schilling
The Future of Humanity by Michio Kaku
Brain Food by Richard Cornish
Timekeepers by Simon Garfield
Even if you are not big into non fiction, I am sure to have some other great reviews this month. As you can see from above I tend to read multiple books at one time.
