I’m so glad that Jenn introduced me to Net Galley, there is always so much excitement surrounding and when receiving ARCs and this website totally just sums up all those feelings in an awesome website (though I do wish it was more mobile friendly…) So when I was browsing for some book tags to do this morning, I found Ari’s blog The Daydreaming Bookwork (here) and decided I wanted to give this book tag a shot! And also plug for Net Galley again!
♥ Link back to the tag’s creator (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.
Let’s get started!
AUTO-APPROVED: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
Sarah J. Maas. I don’t care what she writes about I will read it. I probably would reread Twilight (cringe) if she rewrote because I have so much faith in that woman!
REQUEST: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
Honestly, not much. Hype is the biggest thing that draws me to a new book. I prefer to go in blind to books, I don’t even want to know the premise, just tell me that you thought it was a good book and I’m all there for it. There are so many different genres out there and it would be impossible for me to tell you which ones I loathe if I haven’t given them a shot yet!
FEEDBACK RATIO: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
Now that I am in the blogisphere world I really do try to. With that being said in an instance like And I Darken, I did not review it because Eden got to that bad boy before I did so I definitely wasn’t going to steal the review from under her; however, it makes it nice because I can still discuss with her and give you guys a little different variety if we hadn’t felt exactly the same (loved it! check the review here) about the book.
BADGES: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Gullible reader would be the best badge for me. I am TERRIBLE. I will believe exactly what the author expects me to believe and not think anything of it! This really does provoke some strong emotions when I get to some twists and turns in the stories but man does it make for a fun read for me!
WISH FOR IT: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
There are so many new releases that I am anticipating that I don’t know if I can even manage when they are released… Empire of Storms, Crooked Kingdom, Furthermore, Gemina, I really could just keep going…
2016 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?
I’m currently working on Once Confronted, an ARC from Net Galley, but the last book that I reviewed was An Ember in the Ashes (squeeeeeeee!) by Sabaa Tahir which you can see here.
