If you’re a book blogger, you’re probably familiar with NetGalley. If you’re not, I’ll quickly explain what it is: it’s basically an online library for ARCs, or Advanced Reader Copies, of books soon to be released. The general rule is that if you request a book and you’re accepted, you get to read and keep it in return for an honest review.
Book bloggers tend to have a love/hate relationship with NetGalley. It’s amazing because anyone who is anyone can sign up for free; there’s no strings attached, they don’t ask for high numbers of followers; literally anyone who likes to talk about books can register. “So where’s the bad in that?!” I hear you ask. Well, let me tell you.
