If you’re not sure what Netgalley is – crash course ahead! Netgalley is a website where anyone can go to sign up and request books for review. Different publishers have different criteria, so not all requests will be approved, but it’s also a great tool to see what releases are coming up and a way to discover books you might not have come across otherwise.
Thank you to Birdie Bookworm for including me in The Netgalley Tag!
| The Rules of the Tag |

- 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.
| The Questions |
AUTO-APPROVED: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
Oh, good. We’re starting off with an easy one! Hands down, Garrett Leigh. Her books have a way of crawling inside me and staying there. Her characters are so haunting. She’s the queen of angst.
REQUEST: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
Aside from the author and publisher, I look at genre, and then the blurb. If it’s a second chance romance, there’s a good chance I’m in!
FEEDBACK RATIO: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
Well…I plan to review every book I read, but it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes I request a book on a whim, and then when I go to read it, I find it just wasn’t for me. Nothing to do with the plotting or writing – sometimes it’s just my mood. In that case…not always.
BADGES: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
I’m not creative enough to come up with a badge! I much prefer admiring other people’s creations. 🙂
WISH FOR IT: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
Hunted by Meagan Spooner. I was so diligent in checking Edelweiss for this book that had the cops shown up at my door to arrest me for stalking, I probably would have tossed my wrists out and told them to take me away. I can’t wait for this book. (Ooops…maybe I shouldn’t have said Edelweiss?)
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?
The last ARC I read and reviewed was The Bridesmaid and the Bachelor by Kris Fletcher, and I loved it!
