Auto-Approved: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
Typically I don’t look at a book unless the cover draws me in but I also give the summary a quick read and glance at the rating on Goodreads. I have started looking at other reviews but not very often.
Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
On Goodreads? Typically yes. My rating is currently 60% but that’s because I do wait until a little closer to the publish date to read some of the books. I am also behind on putting in one or two reviews for books I’ve read. I have DNF’d one or two books from Netgalley though.
Other than on Goodreads, no I do not review every book. I will rate them all but reviews take a lot of time and thought energy that I just don’t always have. It really depends on how I feel mentally.
Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
I really liked Kitty’s answer of genre badges! I also think badges for rating 10/20/50 books 4 stars or more would be cool if that makes sense?
Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
On Netgalley specifically, Jane Anonymous which comes out January 7th. I plan to read this on my flight to Vegas in January but it is taking a lot of self control not to read it now.
2016 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?
The last ARC I reviewed was Dare to Be You by Marianne Schnall. I have a review up on my blog if you want that check that out.
