The Netgalley Tag
Danielle @ Books, Vertigo, and Tea and Kate @ Backwards Bookshelf both tagged me in this super fun tag
last month awhile ago and I am so excited to finally get around to doing it! Be sure to check out these lovely ladies’ blogs because they are awesome!
- 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 are about?
Kurt Vonnegut is the one author that I would read anything he wrote, but since he passed away in 2007 I have think I have read nearly everything. As far as current authors, Tomi Adeyemi and Lindsay Buroker are both on this list.
REQUEST: What makes you want to request a book on NetGalley?
I’ll admit that I don’t often look through the books that are listed there anymore, I generally go looking for a book in particular. BUT when I do, it is all about the covers initially! I look at what’s available in my preferred genres and read the synopses of the books that catch my eye.
FEEDBACK RATIO: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
I review every book that I finish, but I do not write public reviews for books that I do not finish reading unless I found them problematic and felt strongly that I needed to share my experience. Because books can slow burn, I try to give it at least 30-40% before deciding to DNF. I am currently trying to catch up to my NG backlog before more approvals come in and ruin my feedback ratio lol
BADGES: If you could create one badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Diverse reads, for sure! I need to make more of a conscious effort to read more diversely and work a bit harder on my around the world reading challenge!
WISH FOR IT: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
Grim Lovelies by Meg Shepard. I legit would sell my soul for an ARC of this book but have settle for pre-ordering it and anxiously waiting until September.
2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: What was the last ARC that you reviewed?
Mirage by Somaiya Daud is my most recent NG review, but that post is coming on the 21st of this month so I suppose Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart.

As always do not feel obligated to do this tag if you do not want to!
Let’s go on another adventure together!
