So I was tagged by Mani’s Book Corner to answer these questions about Netgalley and since I am an avid user of Netgalley and it’s one of my favorite topics I figured I would do it right away. This Tag was originally created by Kourtni at Kourtni Reads.
- 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 tag too.
AUTO-APPROVED: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they are about?
Sherry Ficklin, Laini Taylor, Holly Black, Alexandra Bracken, Pintip Dunn, KL Slater, Jennifer L Armentrout, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Leigh Bardugo, Mary E. Pearson, Ally Carter, April Genevieve Tucholke. That’s pretty much my top authors, but I’m sure there are a bunch I left out.
REQUEST: What makes you want to request a book on NetGalley?
The cover, if it makes the “Most Requested” list, the synopsis, if I recognize the author. Oh, and of course, if one of my blogger friends recommends it! Basically anything that makes me think it might be good!
BADGES: If you could create one badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Hmmm… how about the quality of my reviews. All they seem to care about is the numbers, but what about the quality of the review? Basically the way they could track it is if people thumb it up or down.
WISH FOR IT: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
Muse of Nightmares, White Stag, Black Wings Beating, Blanca & Roja, Little White Lies, Shadow of the Fox, Girls of Paper and Fire, Wicked King. Basically all the titles I’ve gotten denied for that are on my #bookishwish list. (Pssttt… if anyone wants to fulfill one of these #bookishwishes I would love you forever.)
