Thank you Donna @ Chocolatenwaffles‘ blog for tagging me! Anyone who hasn’t been over to her blog, it’s not about waffles – well not really (although she talks often about waffles) – but all about the best books out there. Go on then and take a look at her fab blog!

Auto-Approved: Who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they’re about?
This might sound like I’m singing the same tune again but Colleen Hoover for sure (although I don’t think she uses Netgalley). There are a few other authors as well like Linwood Barclay (requested on Netgalley with a wishbone even as his latest book Twenty-Three is not for review in Europe but nada), Tom Bale and Robert Bryndza.
Request: What makes you want to request a book that you see on NetGalley?
Well I detect some sort of a pattern developing by now and it goes a little something like this: I usually read a review of a book on another blog or on Goodreads and then I really want to read that one too. So I go over to NetGalley and request that book. At the same time I happen to check the other books in my favorite categories and then I see a familiar author name or an intriguing cover and I decide to click again (and again and again).
Feedback Ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?
Yes I do review every book, I have always reviewed all my reads on Goodreads so I continued to do so when I started my blog. I feel that it shouldn’t only be about the good books. I’m personally happy with a review from someone with a similar book taste who warns me about a book that wasn’t all that good too.
Badges: If you could create your own badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?
I don’t know this one. Maybe Master sleuth? Or Member of TBC (a supersecret book club).
Wish for It: What’s one book that you are absolutely dying to read?
I still want to read It Ends With Us but I’m kind of savoring the anticipation and waiting because it’ll be a long wait for her next novel and as long as I’ve not read it I have something to look forward too. It’s twisted psychology I know but it works for me.
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 received was All Fall Down from Tom Bale. So happy I was accepted and such a great read.
