Since I decided on Tuesday that it’s time to bring some more festive feels to my blog, I’ve decided to kick off Tag Thursday with Jenniely’s Bookish Naughty Or Nice Book Tag! I’m sure the majority of you already follow her by now, but if you haven’t seen her posts, you should definitely check it out! Her content is top and her graphics are always gorgeous and absolute goals 😍I wasn’t tagged in this one but I saw it on Jenn’s page and then I saw Sammie did it too, so I thought I’d jump aboard too. So, let’s get to it!
- Tag and link the person who tagged you.
- Link back to the creator (Jenniely).
- Tick or cross off the ones you’ve done!
- Tag 10 people!
✘ Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✘
Shots fired! I repeat, shots fired! Gah, my guilt alone would send me straight to the naughty list but it’s kind of comforting to know I’m not alone in this. I’m still doing my best to get them all read though!
Have a less than 60% rating on NetGalley
Booyah! Earlier this week I had a 76% rating but since I got approved for several more books yesterday I’m back down to 74%. My goal for the end of 2019 is to get to 100% but… realistically I think I’m going to try hitting 80% 😅
✘ Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) ✘
Okay, alright, I know I have a million reviews to catch up on! I’m very well aware. And yes, I feel guilty each time I look at the books I’ve read and haven’t reviewed yet…
✘ Folded down the page of a book ✘
Yeah, I’ve done this before. I still do it sometimes especially when I’m in a rush and can’t find anything to wedge into my book before stuffing it back in my sleeve or bag, but I make it as teeny-tiny-microscopic of a fold as possible!
✘ Accidentally spilled on a book ✘
Omg, I was going to say that I’m still nice, but … I just got mad flashbacks to the time my water bottle SPILLED in my bag and The Cruel Prince was sitting in there (unprotected 😭) and… Water got into the spine… and it was painful!
DNF a book this year
If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know that I don’t DNF books. It’s still something I’m “working” towards doing but I still haven’t gotten there yet. There’s one book that has been stuck on my “currently reading” list since February (I’m looking at you Goldfinch) as I went through a terrible slump then, but I’m hoping to finish it before the year ends! Or something… soon…
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Surprisingly, no! I mean, I’ve bought books purely for its pretty cover/spine but I always intend to read the books I buy! It might not be tomorrow or even in a month’s time or… well, you get the point. But I always want to read them!
✘ Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) ✘
Or like… Work? Y’know, the thing I have to do every day to earn the money I need to spend on said books 😂
✘ Skim read a book ✘
Skimming a book when I have the strong urge to DNF is how I usually avoid DNF’ing so yeah, I do this just a little bit…
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
I’m quite pleased to know that I’ve kicked major Goodreads Reading Goal ass this year! I’ve never read so much in one year in my life, but it’s all thanks to the strong influence of the book community 😍 I’ve read 196/90 books!
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
I’m assuming these questions apply to our whole reading life span but surprisingly, I’ve actually always returned the library books I borrowed when I was in school! Sometimes they’d be late AF, but they’d always go back! 😇
✘ Broke a book buying ban ✘
Oh heckin’ heck. Yeah, me and book buying bans do not jam. I think the longest I’ve managed to stick to a buying ban was like… One month?! And it was probably the longest month ever 😂 Wow, I sound hella spoiled haha!
✘ Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about ✘
I mean, I have a notoriously terrible memory. Often times I can’t even remember a thought from the morning or the day before so… yes, this happens. Quite often unfortunately 🙃
Wrote in a book you were reading
Nup, I’m not about that life lol I spend way too much money on my books to write in them (because there are no libraries here!). I know people do and that’s fine for them if that’s what they wanna do but… Not for me, thanks 😊
✘ Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads ✘
Yuh, this used to happen a lot, especially if I wasn’t reading on my Kindle. It still happens sometimes but less often now since I started this blog and became more active on Goodreads!
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
Well, this isn’t a problem because I have almost zero friends IRL that read and the ones that do read are too far away for me to borrow books from 😂
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
See above because again, I don’t have friends that live close by who read (or read the same books I do)!
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
OMG NO. Do I want to die? I don’t think so 😂😂😂
✘ Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged ✘
Why is this tag making me relive horrible times?! Yes… It has happened and the book has never gone back to the way it was before I accidentally spilled water on it 😢
Sat on a book accidentally
No. I always look before I sit 😂
FINAL TALLY… AM I BOOKISHLY NAUGHTY OR NICE?
10 Naughty & 10 Nice… Which means I’m neutral? Well, that was anti-climactic… 😂 Haha
It’s okay if you don’t like tags or don’t feel like doing this one. No pressure at all! Also, even if you’re not tagged and want to do it, consider yourself officially tagged! Don’t forget to link back so I can see your answers 😉
