Netgalley & Edelweiss say no!

Hello readers!

I saw a post like this a while ago, and thought it was so interesting. As a reader outside of the UK and the US that reads almost exclusively in English, a lot of books on Netgalley and Edelweiss are limited – in case you don’t know, some of the most requested books on Netgalley aren’t possible to be requested by people outside of the US/UK anymore.

  • I couldn’t even request Girls of Paper and Fire on Netgalley, really, so Edelweiss was my only chance, and I was swiftly denied this wonderful book. I mean, I probably will eventually buy it because THAT COVER, but still, very disappointed.
  • Tangerine sounds atmospheric, vintage-feeling with a hint of glamor crime novel. It also looks like a perfect summer mystery read. But oh well – I got declined both by Netgalley and Edelweiss, so maybe the universe just doesn’t want me to read it. But I will! …maybe.
  • I wanted to read Daughter of the Burning City so badly, but it just didn’t happen. I will get it this year still, because it still sounds amazing and I desperately want to read it!


  • Jar of Hearts is being so, so talked about, and it sounds like a fabulous read. I love thrillers,
  • Isle of Blood and Stone I actually got on sale on Amazon Kindle! Yessss
  • Ace of Shades sounds so amazing and intriguing, but I got denied on Edelweiss and not even allowed to request on Netgalley. I will probably buy the book at some point… I think.

  1. My understanding was that Netgalley (not sure about Edelweiss) removed the request option for international users because publishers aren’t legally allowed to send books to countries where they don’t have territorial rights. But then Netgalley started up some international country-specific sites to make it easier for users to find books available in their countries? I don’t know if that’s helpful or not. 😦
