Conspiracy theories and the #20BooksOfSummer

Yet again NetGalley and Kensington Books appear to have been conspiring against my original plan for the 20 Books of Summer. They seem to "get" me and when Kensington sends me a pre-approval notice for something? I jump at it. It doesn't seem to matter if I already have a plan in place ... or if the book is the third or fourth in a series that I then have to find the earlier installments of and marathon read .... which is what happened the last time.

And it's happened again.

This time I'll be diving into the Henry David Thoreau Mysteries by husband-wife writing team B. B. Oak. I've always been a Thoreau freak and we all know by now that I love a good mystery. I'm already 20% in to the first in the series, Thoreau at Devil's Perch, just from the bus ride to work tonight and so far I'm loving it! Luckily my library has the second book and the third is already waiting in my Kindle app thanks to NetGalley.

Aren't they pretty???

So my new goal? To read at least 15 of my original 20 Books of Summer. At the rate I'm going it could happen ... if I block NetGalley & Kensington from my inbox.


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one that has NG books that have disrupted my 20 Books of Summer... but after all a good book, is a good book!

    1. I've tried really hard to ignore NG's general emails and to not go on looking for anything. I have 2.4 GB of epubs alone waiting to be read ... not to mention shelves full of actual books and over 200 books in my Kindle app. But when Kensington sends me a pre-approval notice I just can't help myself!
