Was I Tagged? No! Does That Stop Me? Also No! | NetGalley Book Tag

I know what you're thinking. Jessica, isn't this tag from 2016? YES. Yet, here we are. What can I say? I'm trash for a good bookish tag. And this is one of the tags that I've always seen floating around in the community.

Tag Rules:
  • Link back to the tag’s creator (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

Auto-Approved: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?

I suck at picking just one anything. I'm too extra. So! Hm. There are a lot of author who'd qualify for this. Longtime favourites like J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, Cassandra Clare, Donna Tartt, Gillian Flynn, Michael Faudet, Cecily von Ziegesar, P.C. Cast, Kristin Cast, Amanda Lovelace, David Duchovny, Krista and Becca Ritchie, Marie Rutkoski, Leigh Bardugo, Taylor Jenkins Reid and A.G. Howard, are at the top of the list for me! (Me: list a handful of authors, Jessica. Also me: I'm going to list half of the authors on my bookshelf instead.)

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

To be honest, I don't think I have any set reasoning for wanting to request a book. Everything is rooted in my desire and personal preference, I suppose. It's either got an eye-catching synopsis, is in a genre I enjoy, penned by an author I adore or it allows me to stretch my shallow technique a bit by having a gorgeous cover. 

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

Oh, yes! I absolutely read/review everything I request on NetGalley. I have one of those insufferably determined personalities and it prevents me from having a low score re: my feedback ratio. I try not to DNF things on the site and I almost always write reviews on everything I read.

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

That's a good question! It kind of stumped me. I walked away from my draft of this tag because it may have rattled me a little. I think it'd be cool to create your own badges but I have no idea what mine would say. "Most likely to request 100 books in the span of a month" maybe? IT'S TOTALLY AN ACCOMPLISHMENT AND A TALENT.

Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?

With me being me, naturally my mind went to not one book but five. I'd LOVE to get my greedy little paws on Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare in the coming months. I think that is my most wanted title for 2020 releases. Or The Night Country by Melissa Albert. BUT, I've been pretty lucky and have ARCs of various upcoming titles I'm drooling over so I'm definitely not complaining.

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?

I feel like I've accomplished a lot this year re: ARC reviews. Yet, for some reason, I stumbled with this one! No, seriously. Dang. I had this, "Uh, what?" moment over this question because, for some reason, my brain hung up that 'gone fishing' sign again and I couldn't think of the answer to this one. Thankfully, Goodreads had me covered: Tarnished Are the Stars by Rosiee Thor was the last ARC I reviewed! (Well, as of me drafting and scheduling this post. This likely has changed.)

Because this tag is getting older, I'm doing the usual: anyone who wants to do this, consider yourself tagged!
