I was tagged by the amazing Meghan @Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog!
- Link back to the tag’s creator Kourtni @Kourtni Reads.
- Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
- Answer the questions the best you can. If you don’t use NetGalley, you can substitute other sites or places where you get books!
Tag a few people to do this too.
1. Auto-Approved: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
I actually have a few for this one. Basically all of my favourite authors belong in this category. I will read anything by them, no matter what it’s about. Those authors are:
- Victoria Schwab,
- Leigh Bardugo,
- Rick Riordan,
- Patrick Ness,
- Neil Gaiman,
- J.K. Rowling.
I’m sure there are a few more of them out there, but these are the first ones that came to my mind.
2. Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
The first thing that draws me to a book on NetGalley is the cover. I’m a sucker for beautiful and interesting covers, so I would obviously check those out first. Then there is the fact that I may have heard about the book from someone, which makes me want to request it as well. But my biggest reason for requesting books is if they sound interesting and like something that I would enjoy, otherwise there is no point in requesting it.
3. Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
No, I don’t review every book I read. I obviously review the ARCs and review books that I receive, as I’m kind of obliged to do that. Other than that I review the books that I feel like reviewing, the ones that I have a lot to talk about and the ones that I feel like raving/ranting about
(depending on my enjoyment of it). If I don’t feel like reviewing a book, I won’t. I just don’t see the point in forcing myself to do that, as writing the review would be more bothersome than rewarding. (Disregarding that statement when it comes to ARCs and review books.)
4. Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
I actually have no idea?! I don’t feel like I need my own badge, so I haven’t really thought about it before. Maybe a badge with my blogs logo?
(Though I would need a blog logo first.) I honestly don’t know…
5. Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
There are literary a ton of books that I’m dying to read. These are just some of them, none of which I actually own
(I do need to get my hands on them soon).
6. 2018 NetGalley Challenge: What was the last book that you received as an ARC that you reviewed? If you’ve never received an ARC, what’s the last book you reviewed?
The last ARC that I reviewed has been The Uploaded by Ferrett Steinmetz, do check out my review for it! This is not the last ARC that I received, but I have been behind on my ARCs for a while now
(nobody is surprised really, I’m usually behind on everything) and I have been trying to catch up.
