My Netgalley Moods

When I first started book blogging I told myself be careful of Netgalley. Don’t get overwhelmed with ARCS. I am a total mood reader and also one of the worst things you can do is give me any kind of reading deadline.

I’ve mostly kept to that and appreciate any ARCs that I do get but my relationship with Netgalley can definitely swing like a pendulum between moods.

  1. I’ve never been on net galley because i only receive hard copies for review, but i can imagine how addictive it must be having so many options at your fingertips! I didn’t realize it sends you a weekly email either…

  2. Ha! This sounds exactly like me 😀 I try really hard not to request books but yet, here I am supposed to be reading a book a month ago and I still haven’t gotten to it 🤦🤦

  3. I feel like every time I read a post about Netgalley, it always makes me want to stay away solely because of the deadlines bloggers feel pressured to read in time by… and then that already existing TBR. Maybe one day. And I don’t think I’m ready for that rejection either. By the way, is there ever any Diary of a Wimpy Kid arc included? For that, I might change my mind.
