The lovely Amy is keeping me on my toes this week, by tagging me in another fun book tag. I love it. Please return the favour by keeping her busy with likes, comments, follows or just having a look through her awesome blog A Court of Crowns and Quills.
- 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?
Phew, so glad this isn’t a timed tag because that list is quite long. But, I think I’ll try to narrow down to my top 5 (random order).
- L.J. Swallow/Lisa Swallow
- Kristy Cunning/C.M. Owens
- Joely Sue Burkhart
- E.M. Moore
- Rick Riordan
★ REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?
Quite a few different factors play a role in this one. When browsing through the available titles, I usually go by the genres I like the most. Other times I’ll be looking for a specific book, based on reviews from other bloggers. Then again when browsing I might come across something I don’t usually read, but where the blurb and cover makes me interested.
★ FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?
This one is actually misleading, because I’ve reviewed 100% of the books I’ve downloaded. However, today I was approved for a book that got archived today and thus, I couldn’t download it – but it still counts in my % it would seem.
★ BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?
I’m going to have to copy Amy’s reply to this one: “I’d like a badge to show my most reviewed genre so publishers can see what genres I like to read the most” – I too think that would be quite the handy badge to have. And probably even creative with all the different genres out there.
★ WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?
I am very excited to read the last book in Their Vampire Queen by Joely Sue Burkhart – which will be called Queen Takes Checkmate as well as the last book in The Dark Side by Kristy Cunning – which is called One Apocalypse.
★ 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 was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of, was Sweatpants at Tiffanie’s by Pernille Hughes. Ironically, I did receive that one through NetGalley and it turns out, that even though she’s born here in the UK, Pernille (like me) has Danish roots. Talk about instant bonding 😛
That’s a wrap!
As always there’s no pressure on doing the tag, if you don’t feel like it. Also, please let me know whether or not you like doing tags & nominations. That way it’s easier for me not to spam people who aren’t interested in doing it.
