Tag: NetGalley Book Tag

Hi everyone! I found this tag over at Dani’s blog@mousaibooks.com. I enjoyed reading through her answers and thought this would be a good tag to do this morning because I won’t be doing Breakfast and a Book. I wasn’t tagged for this one, but please check out her blog and post at the link above.

Rules:

♥ 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 whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?

I’d have to choose Jodi Picoult, Jamie McGuire, Katherine Arden and Debbie Macomber to name a few. Those are the first that came to mind.

-Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?

It’s almost always the cover, title and author that pull me in first. Then I read the blurb and decide from there. With that said, I’ve become much better with the trigger finger. It’s way to easy to get on NetGalley and start requesting book after book and I don’t want to be bogged down. I still have a few to catch up on from early this year. Yikes!

Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?

I used to, until NetGalley started allowing you to choose to not leave feedback if you don’t want to. If I don’t have a whole lot to say, sometimes I’ll just post a short review on Goodreads and then won’t post to my blog. It just depends. Reviews can take a lot of time for me because I struggle to write and sometimes I just want to read without having to worry about it.

I try VERY hard to read every book I start, even physicals, but I’ve finally accepted that there isn’t enough time to waste on books that you just can’t get into. Sometimes you just have to move on.

Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?

Maybe a few badges for the reading challenges I’m doing this year?

Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?

I’ll go with Jodi Picoult’s new book, A Spark of Light. I requested it on NetGalley, but never did get an answer back–which was weird. Then someone said it was just for the first chapter anyhow? Hmm…I’ve never seen that before.

2017 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 is The Doggie in the Window by Rory Kress. You can see that post here.

I Tag:

I’m going to just tag a few people. This is always hard because I know some people don’t do tags and some don’t read ARC’s. Some of you may have already done it, and no pressure to do the tag anyhow if you don’t want to. 🙂

  1. This is a fun tag. My answers would be nearly same except I don’t get many choices of authors being from outside your country so nowadays I don’t go by authors. I pretty much see the cover read the blurb and request.
    Thank you for nominating me 😘💜♥️

  2. This is a fun tag! Annnnddd it’s not too long, so maybe I can do it?! Thank you for tagging me! 💗 I was approved for the new Jodi Picoult, and I received the whole book. I’m not sure why some only received a sample? I wish you had gotten it too, and I have my fingers crossed you still get it. I’ve gotten a couple books recently less than a week before they are due. I want to have your NG self control because then I’d have more time for tags and memes, which is my goal! I am getting there slowly! Thank you again, my sweet friend. Xoxo 😘

    1. I hope you do it! I thought of you because I know you read a lot of ARC’s. ❤ No pressure though! I know you’re so busy. 😁

      How awesome that you received a copy of her new book! Excited to hear your thoughts! I don’t know if I’ll get it, but it’s okay if I don’t. I’ll just get it when it’s published. I just love her! I’ll watch for your review, dear friend! 😘❤❤❤

  3. I love your answers. I also like the option not to review. I have started books and just couldn’t get into them. I would just send back that I didn’t finish it and not review, but the new option is awesome.
