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!
- 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!
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.
