Here are my answers to a fun seasonal tag about reading and books, created on Twitter by @JennieLy.
I was tagged by Shannon T Mc Gee (thanks Shannon!). This is my first time being tagged like this, so I hope I’ll do it right!!
Now let’s jump into it. Have you ever…
Received an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) and not reviewed it – NO
I don’t do many ARC, and those I do I care about, so no I’ve never not followed through.
Have less than 60% rating on Netgalley – ?
