2018 Netgalley Challenge

2018 Netgalley Challenge!

I'm giving myself a challenge this year! I'm so sick of having unread netgalley arcs sitting on my kindle, and having a low rating on the website for the lack of ratings. So, I have around 100 books left to get through, not counting the future approvals, that I want to read this year and get my score to 100%!! If you are in the same boat as me, join in and we will together try and read all of the ARCS! :)

The rules for the 2017 New Release Challenge are simple:

Books have to be released and reviewed in 2017.
Other challenges can be used as well, if you are participating in the Netgalley / Edelweiss challenge or in the COYER challenge, books can count towards more than one challenge, as long as the ones you use for the 2017 New Release Reading Challenge qualify to the other rules.
The minimum length for a book to qualify is 100 pages, it can be in any format though, physical, e-book, ARC or audiobook.

The New Book Release Challenge is open from January 1st through December 31st 2017, and sign-ups are open until February 15th 2017.

You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, you can link to your review on Goodreads or Booklikes instead – so don’t be shy!

Review: Blaze by Richard Bachman (Pseudonym), Stephen King

1202644 Summary from Goodreads:

He's got a plan.

But he hasn't a clue...

Clayton Blaisdell's capers are strictly small time until he meets George Rackley. With Blaze's brawn and George's brains, they pull off a hundred successful cons. Then George plans the one big score every small timer dreams of: kidnapping the infant heir to a family fortune.

The trouble is that by the time the deal goes down, the brains of the operation has died. Or has he?

Now Blaze is running into the white hell of the Maine woods with a baby as hostage. The crime of the century just turned into a race against time...

"King's brilliance is in making his readers root for the kidnapper" Daily Telegraph

"An essential missing piece in King's oeuvre... compelling" Independent On Sunday
