Time to answer some QUESTIONS REGARDING NETGALLEY!

Tag - Award

I don’t even want to know how many tags and awards I’ve been missing out on. I simply haven’t had the time to keep track of everything and.. I feel so bad about it too. Here’s me making an effort of catching up, even if it’s only one tag at a time. I really don’t like squeezing multiple into one post so yeah.

In saying that, please, if you tagged me for something and I haven’t done it yet, please poke me and poke me and poke me so I will?!

Anyway! For this tag – The NetGalley Tag – I got tagged by Avery @ Red Rocket Panda – thanks, Avery! I remember doing this tag last year as well – September, to be exact – so it’ll be fun to see how my answers have changed.

Reading these questions, I do think there could’ve been more questions. Better questions – especially since it’s called the NetGalley Tag. In saying this, if you have any questions on how I handle NetGalley myself, feel free to ask!

THE RULES

♥ 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.

THE QUESTIONS

Lifel1k3 (Lifelike, #1)>> AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?
Oh boy, only one? Yeah, NO. Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas, Marissa Meyer, Becky Albertalli, Brigid Kemmerer and Holly Black. Jay Kristoff might be added to this as soon as I’ve read Lifel1k3 so.. we’ll see!

>> REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?
Right now, I definitely take a look at the publication date first. I don’t want to drown in release dates and have those pressure me. Then I check the cover and blurb; if I like those – or at least like the sound of the blurb – chances are I’ll be requesting the book. I’ve gotten very picky with my requests though. Sometimes my own books need to come first.

>> FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?
I absolutely review every book I get through NetGalley. I haven’t skipped one so far and I’m hoping to keep that up. Apart from that, I usually don’t review sequels I read. I simply don’t really feel the need to? And if a book was simply “meh” and has me unable to explain why it’s meh, I sometimes skip reviewing as well. It all depends, I guess.

>> BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?
I’m definitely going with Avery on this one because a genre-related badge would be epic! That way we can show off what genres we prefer and publishers can easily see how many books we’ve already read and reviewed in said genre on NetGalley.

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air, #2)>> WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?
JUST GIVE ME THE SEQUELS. I needneedneed Wildcard, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix, Children of Virtue and Vengeance, The Wicked King, Rage, Kingdom of Ash and Queen of Air and Darkness! The list isn’t.. that big.. Right?

>> 2017 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?
In 2017? That would be All the Wrong Chords by Christine Hurley Deriso.

THE TAGGING

I’m honestly tagging each and every single one of you so you better own up to this! No ignoring you just read this because you don’t feel like it! Like, simply copy/paste the link to this post in a draft and get back to it when you do feel like it. It’s what I do. And also how I save up on a whole ton of tags so maybe that’s not the smartest move..

What’s the sequel you absolutely need right now? Like, RIGHT NOW?

  1. All the Wrong Chords, oh man, I had forgotten about that one. So, fun story about that – my dad was talking to me one day last… fall-ish? And was like, “I reconnected with some of my high school classmates on facebook last week and learned that one of them writes YA books! You should see if you recognize her name!” and he tells me, and I’m like, “OMG, I have an eARC of hers!” and we were freaking out over what a small world it was. And then I hated everything about her writing and DNFed it so fast I didn’t even log it on goodreads, just netgalley. Whoops. Lmao when he asked me later I was honest and he just laughed and was like, “Yeah, I didn’t say she wrote GOOD books…”

    1. Well.. I don’t know whether to burst out laughing or pity you right now. At least she didn’t come up to you herself about her book?! Like, that would’ve been totally awkward! 😛
      *I obviously didn’t really like it either since I 2-starred it but I did finish it. Although.. Let’s blame me and my DNF-refusal..*

  2. KINGDOM OF ASH!!!! PLEASE!!!! FOR ONCE MAKE TIME GO FAST!!!
    *gasp* Did you see the cover for Kingdom of Ash 0.0 It is literally gorgeous! I’m so excited but so scared …. oh gosh.
    I’ve never used NetGallery nor do I have an account…… maybe I should??? But I am soo scared of asking for things XD

    1. YES. AMEN. THAT. I NEED IT.
      And the cover is so prettyyyyy. I can’t wait to add it to the others and be all *drool*. I’m so going to drool all over them.

      Haha, NetGalley is way more impersonal than Edelweiss is when it comes to requesting books. NetGalley is a simple “click whether the cover, content, author or something else got you interested” or multiple of those options and then request. Edelweiss gives you the option to state why exactly you want a certain book – getting declined THEN hurts my soul every single time. Do not recommend if you’re heart-broken easily over getting denied things, haha.

    2. I’m already drooling just looking at what I can’t yet have. (I’ve already pre-ordered it, #notevenashamed)

      I’m really tempted to give Netgallery a chance. More so, if the process is as simple as you say 😀

  3. A sequel I need right this second is Vengeful by V.E. Schwab. I loved Vicious so much and I can’t wait to read what happens next!!
    Oh and Kingdom of Ash. I need that one asap… but like. I don’t want it. Because then the series will be over and I’m not ready for that 😅

    1. I haven’t read Vicious yet. Nor do I own it. I do own the ADSOM-books? But.. haven’t read those yet? I REALLY SHOULD, RIGHT?!

      I feel your pain. I’ll need something to cure that hangover up front or I won’t survive?!
