NetGalley Update #1 March 2018!

Hi all! I have a new style of post today which will hopefully be the first post in a series of posts!

I’m going to be periodically posting updates on the state of my NetGalley account and all the books that I have to read and hopefully this will help highlight all the great books which are due out! My NetGalley TBR has expoded this year and continues to do so (someone should probably stop me requesting so many!) I currently have 8 books to read and for this post I’m going to be posting a short synopsis, the link to the goodreads page, the genre, the release date! Most of these (if not all of them) are Crime or Thriller books which are the genre that I tend to read but if there’s anythign special about a book I’ve requested then I’ll leave it below! I tend to read my NetGalley books in order of release date but if you have any of these that you think I just need to get to sooner then just let me know!

Exhibit Alexandra – Natasha Bell

37564592Genre: Crime/Thriller

Release Date: 08 March 2018

This follows the disappearance of Alexandra, a mother and a talented artist, and the story of her husband Marc as he copes with the process of hopefully finding her again. He of course discovers things aren’t as they seemed with Alexandra and he begins to realise he may not have known his wife all along. The most interesting part of this story is that this is all told from Alex’s perspective.

I requested this because it sounded like a really intriguing and right up my street as another crime thriller novel. Obviously I was also intrigued by the fact that the main character and title has the same name as me plus its set in North Yorkshire which isn’t far from where I live!

Catfished – Stella Bixby

Release Date: 02nd May 2018

Rylie’s life is a mess right now; been cheated on lied to, homeless and unemployed. The perfect solution to all her problems could be in the job of Urban Park Ranger until a dead body turns up in a Catfish trap on her first shift. The lead investigator ends up being her first love and she seems determined to prove herself, especially when the murder is pinned on the wrong man.

This is different to my usual dark thriller reads but I decided to pick it up as I’ve seen a lot of people mention how great cosy crime reads are and this sounded like a soft introduction into the genre; mainly because this seems more like a contemporary mixed with a crime/thriller book!
