January was declared NetGalley month and here is how I did.

      January was declared NetGalley month round up.

Red house books had declared January to be NetGalley month. So I  declared myself entered.

Between January 1st and January 31st, I was challenged to read as many NetGalley books as I possibly could!

 I aimed high and said I would attempt to read 15 NetGalley book in January.

I got off to a slow start and didn't get to 15, I admit I got side tracked with some erotic short stories and went a bit mad buying and reading loads of them this month.
My reading total for January is 31 books.....
but only 9 of those were NetGalleys.

These were the 9 books.

This was a lot of fun and if I am very honest I am a little disappointed that my NetGalley total is not higher but I kept just saying to myself "just one more then I will read a Netgalley one" the only problem was I didn't specify which was the one more!! The question of the hour is.. would I do this again?? Yes absolutely I would, there is something very appealing to me about reading for a challenge I can get very competitive and, as I found with the shot stories, I can get very obsessive too. So I guess the next time I sign up for a reading challenge that is for a specific type of book, like this one, I will have to be better prepared and not get side tracked but who I am I kidding I loved reading all those book this month the fact they all weren't NetGalley books doesn't stop being thrilled I read 31 books in one month!! would have been so cool if I could have said they were though wouldn't it!!
