The NetGalley Tag

IT’S TAG TIME!

Thanks to Kaleena @ Reader Voracious for tagging me in this! I know it’s been about three weeks since you tagged me (oops…), but I’m still doing it! Still giving it a go!

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 ARE ABOUT?

VE Schwab, hands down. I’ll read literally anything that she writes. Anything.

 

REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?

I usually start with the summary, checking to see if it’s something that appeals to me. Then I look at the author, and if the summary wasn’t my thing but I do love the author, then chances are that I might give it a shot anyway. Covers don’t matter much to me with ARCs, so that doesn’t get factored in.

I do also check to see if there’s any hint of the book having LGBTQ+ characters since that really matters to me. I’m particularly interested in non-contemporary f/f stories, and like to read and review those when I can.

 

FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?

I don’t review every single book, but I review close to all of them. Since I rarely DNF books, that’s not an issue, but if the book is a single star read, it’s a toss-up whether I’ll review it to talk about everything that made it such a bad read for me, or whether I’ll move on, saving my time and energy for books I enjoy.

Luckily, I haven’t found a single star read through any ARCs yet, so my feedback ratio is close to 100% (or will be, when these scheduled reviews are posted; trying to post ARC reviews within a month of their release date from now on).

BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?

It’s not something that NetGalley could ever verify, but I’d love a badge for all the books I’ve read in one sitting! I’m a book monogamist, and I rarely take more than a day to finish unless life is hectic. It’s really cool but also a little wild how many books I’ve read in one sitting.

 

WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi! I still haven’t had a chance to read it and I’M DYING TO.

 

2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: WHAT WAS THE LAST ARC THAT YOU REVIEWED?

The House in Poplar Wood by KE Ormsbee, on August 15th! I tried to read a lot of physical books in the last two weeks of August so I didn’t have to take a giant pile of books with me to school. I’ll be reviewing The Darkdeep next, and Outrun the Wind soon!

 

I TAG…

Anyone who wants to do it! I feel like I tagged a lot of folks for the quote challenge, so I’ll leave this super open-ended.

    • It’s hard not to be drawn in by covers, but I really try to put the summary first, plus anything I’ve heard about it from other bloggers. A nice cover is a bonus, but especially on eARCs, not a huge deal.

      And haha, I’ve always been like that! I like committing to one thing and just getting it done. Makes me feel accomplished lol.

  1. Oh lovely answers for this tag! I haven’t read everything V.E. Schwab has written just yet, so far I have read the ADSOM series and This Savage Song, but damn. I admire her and her writing so, very much and I want to read everything she writes for sure!
    I hope you’ll get to read Children of Blood and Bone soon, it was a brilliant book, definitely worth the hype 🙂
    (and…three weeks, you’re quick, I have tags dated back from 2015 I haven’t gotten to. You’re good hahaha)

  2. “I’m a book monogamist, and I rarely take more than a day to finish unless life is hectic.” ME TOO. I envy people who can read multiple books at a time and over a long period, but I honestly can’t let a book go until I’ve finished, and I refuse to pick up another one until I do. Great tag! I loved all your answers! ❤
