What I’ve Read
So I applied to read a couple of books on NetGalley not really expecting to get approved for much. Just kidding I got approved for all of them! I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, I am absolutely thrilled about it! I definitely have plenty of books to read this year already! I just got so used to getting rejected because my account was newer, though I’ve recently gotten my rating above 70% so I guess that probably had something to do with it.
I also have to say how much I seriously love Amazon’s Prime Reading program. I’ve had a Prime membership for several years now and love my kindle, but they have really stepped up their book loaning program. I’ve found myself borrowing a ton of books, primarily non fiction and classics, but there are quite a few newer releases on there as well.

I wanted to make special note of the review I linked for The Bear and the Nightingale. It’s a book I just finished this month and am beyond thrilled that I got the opportunity to read and review it from the publisher. The review basically sums up my thoughts on the book and I definitely recommend it.
