The more I do them, the more I love them. No, I’m not talking about waffles, but tags. Yesterday, I discovered a new tag created by the wonderful Koutni at Kourtni Reads. I have a complicated relationship with NetGalley, so this tag is perfect for me!
- Link back to the tag’s creator (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
Auto-Approved: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
Based on my last reads, I would say Jenny Lawson. She could write about toilet paper being at war with makeup wipes and I’d read it.
Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
The synopsis. I have requested a few ARCs that later changed their covers so I make sure to browse and pick randomly to read as many blurbs as possible. I don’t trust cover on the website.
Also, there is one publisher that I check regularly and from which I requested lots of books just because I liked the first title they sent me. I trust them with my
Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
When I started, I only reviewed books if I had something to say about it, which means I did not review that many books! I was at loss about what to say, how to say it, and how to express my feelings. Now that I am starting to gain experience, I enjoy jotting down thoughts for every book I read and review them, even a month later.
Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Furiously reading. I would give it to all readers to wear proudly on their blog to remind them reading is a hobby and a pleasure and take the pressure off, and as a reminder of their love for reading when they’re stuck in a slump.
Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
Only one??? 404 ERROR
Okay, to stay on the NetGalley theme, this week I requested a book after weeks of fast. Following publishers on Twitter is a terrible idea. As soon as Bookouture announced Helen Pollard’s new book was up on the website, I “virtually” run over there to grab my ARC. By the way, thank you for approving, you have my eternal love.
I adored The Little French Guesthouse, and I am hoping to enjoy my second stay at La Cour des Roses.
2016 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 I reviewed was Good Girl Bad Girl. I am so behind on my reviews for NetGalley, it’s a shame. I am trying to solve the issue during this long weekend but I also need to catch up on Suits…
