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.

  2. 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.
