It feels like I haven’t done a book tag in ages! I was recently tagged to do the NetGalley tag and I figured now was the time to bring them back to the blog! See my answers below to learn more about my love/hate relationship with NetGalley! Also, thank you to Morrisa @MorrissaReads for the tag!
- 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.
Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
Shaun David Hutchinson. I literally jump for joy when I see he has a new book coming out and I honestly don’t even read the synopsis until after I’ve added it to my “need-to-read-ASAP” list.
What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
When I first started using NetGalley, I would request anything that looked cool and interesting based on the cover or synopsis. Now that I understand how NetGalley works and considering my limited amount of reading time, I usually only request books that I’ve heard about by authors I’ve read before that I know I really want to read!
Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
As mentioned above, when I first started using NetGalley, I didn’t know about feedback ratios or any of that fun stuff and I was mostly just trigger happy when it came to requesting. Now that I understand how it works, I read everything that I requested and got approved for. I may be a little behind, but I’m slowly trying to work my way to up to reading everything on my list and getting my ration back up to the appropriate 80% or higher!
If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
Hmm. Probably the trigger happy badge haha! This is definitely more of a shameful idea, but it would be pretty hilarious to see how many books people requested in the spur of the moment and have still neglected to read!

What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
Artemis by Andy Weir! I loved The Martian and I can’t wait to read what’s next from him!

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 recently received and read Girl In Snow by Danya Kukafka! I haven’t reviewed it yet, but I’m currently working on writing that up as we speak!
