NetGalley Book Tag


My TBR pile is crushing me and I am drowning in beautiful e-ARC’s. I think it’s time to do the NetGalley Book Tag.

The rules

  • Link back to the tag’s creator (Kourtni Reads)
  • 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?

M.J. Arlidge. When Love Me Not, the latest book in the Helen Grace series, was published, I was outside of the bookstore waiting for it to open to get my hands on a signed copy. I love Arlidge’s writing style, the short and fast chapters of his books and the character of Helen Grace. I can’t wait for his next book to come out and I would gladly read everything he ever decides to write.



What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?

I’m not going to lie.. I judge books by their cover. When browsing through NetGalley I look at covers that catch my attention and I read the description of the book. When the description sounds like something I would enjoy, I request the book.

Also sometimes I request a book that I’ve heard a lot of good things of on Twitter or other blogs. When people who have the same taste in books as I do write adoring reviews about a book, I get curious and I want to read it for myself.


Feedback ratio

Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?

I try, but I don’t always succeed.. I try to review as much books as I can, but sometimes I can’t seem to find the time. I do review all the ARC’s and e-ARC’s I get. But I sometimes forget to review the books I buy myself or I get from the library.



If you could create your own bagde to display on your blog, what would it be for?

This is a hard question.. I think I would create a badge for books I’ve read in one day. Sometimes I just enjoy a book so much, I can’t put it down and I keep on reading until I finish it.


Wish for it

What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?

So many books.. So little time..

I can’t wait to start reading some of the books I’ve bought over the last few months. Red Queen, A Court of Thorns and Roses, The Cheerleaders, S.T.A.G.S… Also my pile of books from book boxes is growing fast. I plan on first reading my e-ARC’s and after that I want to start on my other books.


NetGalley Challenge

What was the last book that you received as an ARC that you reviewed?

The latest e-ARC I’ve reveiwed is An Elderly Lady is UP to No Good by Helene Tursten and you can read my review here.

  1. I also judge by covers when looking at NetGalley. There are so many listed titles and the layout isn’t conducive to skimming quickly without opening 900 tabs. I am sure I’ve missed out on a lot of cool books as a result.
