Hey everyone! It’s a Sunday and I thought what better day to try and do a fun little tag! We are super behind in tags, if you’ve tagged Mireille or I – we aren’t ignoring you, we super appreciate it and have them all written down. Just takes us awhile to actually get to them. I’m sure lots of you relate!
I did get tagged recently by the lovely Siobhan at Siobhans Novelties (Go follow her – she is amazing! I love her!)
- Link back to the tag’s creator: Kourtni at 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 Whos Books You Automatically Want to Read, regardless of What They Are About?
Oh goodness, so many. I can’t just pick one, so I’ll narrow it down to a few.
- Tricia Levenseller
- Sarah Glenn Marsh
- Derek Milman
- Dawn Kurtagich
- Victoria Schwab
- Emily Duncan
I want to keep listing!!!!
Request | What Makes You Want to Request a Book on NetGalley?
I’m not a HUGE fan of NetGalley – I was when I first started using it last year. I’ve since found that they favour US users and too many books are “wish only” for anyone outside of that. It’s quite frustrating. International bloggers get me LOL
Long story short – I don’t request very often on Netgalley anymore. I mostly use it to get my earcs from blog tours. However, if I do request an earc on there – it’s usually more likely to be a YA thriller or horror because I enjoy reviewing those before they are released or a debut author. Most of the time I don’t read the GIANT names before release – there are exceptions to this.
Feedback Ratio | Do You Review Every Book You Read? If Not, How Do You Decide What Books to Review?
EXPOSED! No, I try my best to keep up with everything and since Netgalley keeps a rating system, I don’t over-request on there. I keep it pretty minimalist overall. My rating is still usually like somewhere in the 70% range though.
Badges | If You Could Create One Badge to Display on Your Blog, What Would It Be for?
OOh wow, huh – of course I instantly draw a blank. Maybe a badge for being a Debut Author Supporter or LGBT+ Advocate. That would be cool.
Wish for It | What’s One Book That You Are Absolutely Dying to Read?
Right now? I recently got Ruthless Gods and Light at the Bottom of the World and they would’ve been my go-to answers. Oh! I’m really interested in Girls Save the World in this One and my request got denied because Penguin US hates me LOL
2019 NetGalley Challenge | What Was the Last Book That You Received as an ARC That You Reviewed? If You’ve Never Received One, What’s the Last Book You Reviewed?
That I have reviewed? Probably Tiger Queen by Annie Sullivan – You can check out that review HERE.
I can’t tag everyone but if I didn’t tag you this round – still considered yourself tagged if you’d like to do it!!!
