AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?

Most the stuff I request on Netgalley is Thrillers. So I’ll usually go for authors I know. Ruth Ware has become an author I’ll always request on Netgalley. Also Riley Sager has become an auto-request author.


REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?

I always go for thrillers. So I’ll go for books I see people are talking about and said they said they really enjoyed. I also will request books from authors I’ve read from before and really enjoyed. Sometimes I’ll request books if I hear a friend talk about it.


FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?

Netgalley Ratio
I don’t review every book I read. I do for Netgalley. I want to work on getting better at doing more reviews though. I usually review books that I feel I have a lot of thoughts on. I will do this with books I like and books I don’t like. I usually don’t do DNF reviews.


BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?

I would like a badge dealing with genres I read. I would like to know how many different genres I’ve read and reviewed. I think that would be really fun.


WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?

Lock Every Door
Top of my list is Lock Every Door By Riley Sager. I am so excited for this book! It is on Netgalley right now. I did end up requesting it but the publisher said right now those copies are only for journalists. She did say if I do have a book blog I could possibly get a copy close to publication. So hopefully that ends up happening. *Fingers crossed*


2018 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?

King of Fools

King of Fools By Amanda Foody is the last book I received. I have not read it yet. It is part of my March TBR.

My Squirrel Days

My Squirrel Days By Ellie Kemper is the last arc I just read and reviewed that I got from Netgalley.

Anyone who uses Netgalley! I would like to see you do this tag.

March Owlcrate Unboxing

Hey guys! I thought it would be fun to do a little something different on my blog today. My boyfriend recently bought me a subscription to Owlcrate. I was super excited because I really wanted to subscribe to the April box.

I’ve gotten two boxes from Owlcrate in the past. I really enjoyed both boxes a lot. I do love seeing how far Owlcrate has come. Plus I love the exclusive book covers and that the books come signed. It really makes the subscription worth it. So now Let’s dive in! Continue reading “March Owlcrate Unboxing”
