Hello lovelies ! It has been a while since I last posted a discussion post, right ? Today I want to talk about Netgalley.
Netgalley is a website where book reviewers can read books before their official releases. They are usually called ARCs (for Advanced Reader Copies) or galleys.
Until a few weeks ago, I haven’t been interested in this website. Why ? Because you have a time limit to read these books. And I really don’t enjoy reading with a deadline. It’s feeling pressure over something that has always been a pleasure.
I think blogging is already enough pressure in itself haha ! I know you know what I mean !
Moreover, I am contacted via my blog or my bookstagram account so no need for another way, right ?
But lately, I’m changing my mind. I mean, I still don’t like feeling pressured while reading. But I now think that Netgalley can be really useful. It’s useful to us, bloggers, but also to publishing houses. It’s easier for them to contact book reviewers.
And it puts in light books that I wouldn’t have heard otherwise so that a plus !
But now that I have an account, I am struggling with it haha ! It’s not that easy to use !
