Hi everyone! I found this tag over at Dani’s firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
♥ 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?
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. 🙂
Thanks for reading! Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week.
