Last month I posted about the current state of my NetGalley queue, so I’d like to do the same this month. I’m trying to be pickier about the books I request, sticking to requesting only the books I’m really, really excited about.
I am sad to say that I had my first NetGalley book archive before I submitted a review. My first and hopefully last! In all fairness, I watch archive dates closely, and this book had no archive date listed. Maybe understandable, but still annoying.
