I saw this tag over on my friend Cora’s blog (Tea Party Princess) and thought it would be super fun to join in!
Now, I go through phases with NetGalley! There are some months when I use it all the time and request EVERYTHING and then there are other months when I’m never on there. I haven’t been on and requested anything for a long time, so it’ll be interesting to see the answers to this tag!
Auto-Approved: Who is one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they are about?
Just one author? Gosh, Melinda Salisbury… let’s be real. You all knew that was coming! But if I can list others, Sara Barnard, Leigh Bardugo, Matt Haig. The list does go on a while!
Request: What makes you want to request a book on NetGalley?
An attractive cover? A book my friends are reading? An author I love? An interesting title?
Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
I try and write something about EVERY book I read because I think that’s the fairest way to do it. Some reviews will be LONG but others will just be a few words – it just depends on the book and my feelings about it. It’s a bit like my book reviews. I like to review every book in SOME fashion.
Badges: If you could create one badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Oh man, who knows?! I am not a prolific user so I’m not even sure what badges there are available!
Wish For It: What’s one book you’re absolutely dying to read?
I have not been on NetGalley for a while, so I don’t know what’s available. HOWEVER, I do know that I have ‘How Do You Like Me Now?’ by Holly Bourne waiting to be read and I am VERY curious about that, so I may need to dust my kindle off and get that read!
2018 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 book I received on NetGalley was ‘How Do You Like Me Now?’ by Holly Bourne… however it is unread (I will change this over this Summer holidays though!). The last arc I reviewed on NetGalley was ‘Me Mam, Me Dad, Me’ by Malcolm Duffy (which I also reviewed on my blog, check that out here)
And there you have it! The NetGalley tag. I think what we’ve learned is that I don’t use it enough for ARCs, and that I need to read the books that I have on there. I will read Holly Bourne before Summer is over (I have said it now, so it needs to happen!)
Do you use NetGalley?
What gems have you found on there?
Do you prefer a paperback or an ebook arc?
Let me know your thoughts in the comment! If you fancy doing this tag, go for it!
