I always love participating in tags, so I figured why not try to actually come up with one? This was admittedly a lot harder than I thought it would be, but it was also a lot of fun!
- 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?
Let’s see… Veronica Roth, for sure. Suzanne Collins although she hasn’t released anything after The Hunger Games. Jodi Picoult (I still need to read a lot of her books though), Victoria Aveyard, Ellen Hopkins, and Suzanne Young. I could probably add a few more, but I’ll stop haha
Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
Because of the way NetGalley is set up, it’s usually the cover that first draws me in. But I read the description that’s listed and sometimes a few of the reviews that are there too. If I like all of that, then I’ll request! I also request books that I see that I’ve been hearing a lot about around the blogging community or that I’ve been looking forward to.
Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
I review everything I read unless it’s a reread. It seems kind of pointless to review a book that I’m rereading, since rereading it means it’s a book I really loved and therefore a review would probably be pretty biased. 😛
Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
I’d have a badge for having no self-control when it comes to requesting books on NetGalley…
(Also this question was hard so I’m mad at myself.)
Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
There are so, so, so many. I’ll try to limit myself to three: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst, Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill, and Silver Stars by Michael Grant.
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?
Best Left in the Shadows by Mark Gelineau and Joe King. You can check out my review here if you want to!
