The Hallotober Tag

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2

Hey guys! I honestly can’t believe we are in the middle of June right now. I swear June 1st was just yesterday but we’re almost at the end and July is fast approaching. I can’t get over how quick this year is just flying by. It needs to slow down.

Anyway, I have seen this tag going around on youtube and saw some blogger friends post it as well so I thought I’d hop on board and do it. I honestly forgot that I did this last year but I’m excited to do it again! I feel 2019 has been a bit of a difficult reading year for me. I’ve read 38 books so far. I feel this has been a decent reading year. I’ve had some books really stand out and others I haven’t really enjoyed. I also just got out of a bit of a reading slump which I’m glad that’s over with. I do feel I’ve read some enjoyable reads this month so that makes me very happy. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag #2”

Negalley Header.png

RULES
¬ Link back to the tag’s creator: Kourtni at Kourtni Reads
¬ Thank and link back to the person who tagged you: I wasn’t tagged but got this from Mel @ Mel To The Any
¬ 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!


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.


I Tag:

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

I haven’t watched anything in November yet but hope that changes.  Anyway let’s dive in and see what movies I actually did watch. Continue reading “October Movie Wrap-up”

Destiny’s Questions

What was the first book you reviewed, and what star rating did you give it?

 

1 Eleanor & Park

So I honestly don’t remember the first book I ever reviewed. I’m sure I could go on goodreads and find that out. I decided to do the first book I ever reviewed on my blog. That is Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell. You can find the review here.

Would you rather DNF a book, or give it a poor star rating?

I honestly rather DNF a book. I don’t like giving books poor ratings. It’s such a crappy feeling when I don’t like a book. I hate when it was something I was looking forward to.

Where do you primarily acquire your books from? (i.e. specific bookstore, library, Amazon, etc.)

I have to say I do usually order books from amazon. I will also go to Barnes and Nobles. I also really like walking to the library so I’ll go there as well.

Have you ever/would you ever name a pet after a bookish character?

I have never named my pet after a bookish character. I can see myself naming a pet after someone from a book though. I’m still not really sure who I’d name the pet after though.

Is there a song that makes you think of a specific book?

Gemina

When I first read this question I didn’t have an answer but the song from Gemina By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff just popped into my head. I believe the song is from that one. It’s the oh yeah wanna lick your lollipop song.

What was the last book to make your mouth water with its food descriptions?

Destiny, I was just telling you that Anna and The French Kiss By Stephanie Perkins had me craving crepes. I was dying for one the other week. I still haven’t gotten one and now I want it again lol.

What was the last blog you followed? Give them a shout out!

I am so bad at this. I honestly don’t remember the last blog I followed. I am sorry 😦

Do you like BookTube? If so, who are your 5 favorite BookTubers?

Yes I do like BookTube. I do have a couple of favorite youtubers whose videos I try to watch when I go on.

Here they are:

  1. BooksandLala
  2. Emmmabooks
  3. Readbyzoe
  4. ChapterStackss
  5. Jadeyraereads

I think I’m going to do a post soon about my favorite youtubers. These are just a few of the people whose videos I try to watch when they upload. I do have others I really like as well. Plus I haven’t been watching as much lately.

Is there a bookish theme you refuse to read about, or a genre you won’t touch?

Um I don’t think so. I mean I’m willing to give everything a chance as long as it interests me. Sure there are some books I know I don’t want to read just cause I’m not into what they’re about.

Bookish candles: burn them or preserve them?

I currently own one bookish candle. I haven’t burned it yet. I feel I probably will once it gets colder out. I love burning candles.

What was the last book you hauled?

I ended up recently hauling The Last Time I Lied By Riley Sager and Somebody’s Daughter By David Bell. I went to their book signing event last Wednesday.


My Questions

  1. If you could meet any author who would you meet?
  2. What is the last book you regretted buying?
  3. If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?
  4. What book made a really big impact on you?
  5. Where is your favorite place to read?
  6. If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?
  7. Which bookish character do you look up to and why?
  8. If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?
  9. Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?

You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?
