I, like many of you, love checking out NetGalley often, in the hopes of snagging those highly-awaited titles. It's a real life-saver for those with e-readers of any kind. Even if you're like me, who doesn't own anything compatible with the formats that NetGalley requires--who would read a couple ARCs from computer. I love NetGalley. Just a few reasons for you guys to join and start requesting those titles, here are some YA/MG titles that have been added.
This is kind of like an "ode to" NetGalley. I may continue on this, and post something like this every few months. Even going through the lists again, I picked up a couple new titles that I've just requested. For the record, I have read two novels via NetGalley so far. :)
Sorted from most recently added to NetGalley.
The links go to GOODREADS. You'll have to search for the titles yourselves, via NG.

How does NetGalley work?
After registering and logging in to your NetGalley account, you are free to request titles at your will. The respective publishers will then receive the request, and either accept or decline that request. When accepted, you will be given the option to download galley, read preview, etc. You can either use any of the accepted programs for the galleys, or plug them into your e-readers (no idea how). After reading, you can choose to review the book. Follow the links. It's not too difficult.
I've been declined for a title. What am I doing wrong?
I was declined many titles, repeatedly for some of Harper Teen's titles. I emailed straight to Harper Teen--this is what Callie (Marketing Associate) said:
When NetGalley subscribers request a title, the only thing that shows up for me is their name and company. Therefore, if your blog name is not included in the company field in your profile, I have no way of knowing if you’re a blogger. Since I am only able to approve a limited number of requests, I’m not able to approve those where I can’t tell if it’s for a blogger or reviewer.
If you update accordingly and re-request, I can approve you.
The popularity of the title will also account towards whether you will be accepted or not.
I can tell you that other than Harper Teen, every other publisher has accepted for YA titles.
Please comment if any of this was helpful, or if I introduced you to a new book, or alerted you of the available of a book that you're anticipating. Editing this post was annoying. Just sayin'.
