BOOKISH NAUGHTY OR NICE TAG

naughty-or-nice-book-tag

I was tagged my Lili, over at Lili Star Reads and it looks like great fun, so I thought’d give it a shot. The creator of the tag is Jenniely and it is a tag to discover if you have been naughty or nice this year!

Rules

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you
  • Tag and link the creator
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
  • Tag another 10 people!

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it   – Not so far

I haven’t really requested a ton of arcs in the past because I wasn’t reading e-arcs at all and TBR and Beyond group reads kept me busy all the time.

2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley – No

I currently have 75% rating, but we’ll see how long it lasts *fingers crossed*

3.  Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) – Yes (constantly)

I’m terrible for this.  I have the best of intentions but intentions don’t get my reviews written *hides face in shame* Lots I go back to but ones that were just kind of ok for me, I usually can’t remember much about them – even a few days later.

4. Folded down the page of a book – Yes

I used to dog ear books all the time when I was younger.  I don’t feel remotely bad because it wasn’t all Trade Paperbacks and nice hardcovers.  Most of the time it was mass paperbacks (which I no longer read).  I don’t personally do it now because I spend too much money on pretty books *stares lovingly at bookshelves*

5. Accidentally spilled on a book – Yes

Oh god, yes.  I don’t spill because I’m drinking something – it’s usually that I knock over my drink and since my books tend to be all over the place – one gets hit and you hear me screaming like a murder has been committed.

6. DNF a book this year – Yes

I haven’t DNF’d that many.  There have been a couple though that I did stop for various reasons.

7. Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it – Yes

I’m guilty of a lot of this stuff, geez! I love the Barnes and Nobel Classic Collectors Edition and even though I’m in Canada and the shipping in INSANE, I still have managed to buy a good amount.  I see them more as decoration than anything else – though I do plan to read a few.  Some of them have such tiny print on the inside though, so I’d likely buy a better reading copy if I wanted to read some of the stories.

8. Read whilst you are meant to be doing something else (like homework) – Always

Of course, this seems like an obvious.

9. Skim read a book – Yes, a few

I don’t actually do this often but I will do this if I’m getting bored and on the verge of a DNF but I want to get through the rest of it.  I read enough that I get the general jist of it.  It’s extremely rare that I do this on fantasy or sci-fi though.

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal – Not yet

I’ve been doing goals for about three years now, I believe and I haven’t missed it yet.  I don’t set anything I will get too behind on or that will stress me out.  I’m usually over my goal by a bit.

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library – Eek, yes

I’ve lost books as a child, to my mother’s dismay.  I think, for a long time, I had some school library books lying around too.

12. Broke a book buying ban – Nope!

This is an easy one for me because I don’t go on bans, ever.  For me they don’t work.  I want to buy them more if I’m restricting myself so it just backfires horribly.  I buy a lot of books but I guess it could be worse *shrug*

13. Started a review, left it for ages and forgot what the book was about – Constantly

Oh yeah, big time.  I certainly don’t have a photographic memory by any means.  I even forget books that I loved and have to read them again.  I might remember the overall plots, but the small details that are still important and all the names – oh hell no.

14. Wrote in a book you were reading – Definitely  Not

My handwriting is AWFUL and no I’m not being modest.  It would stress me out so much to write in a book and it be all sloppy.  I don’t even show my book planners because it’s not all perfection like some.  I do think it’s really cool though to annotate and maybe someday I’ll bite the bullet and do it.

15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads -Yes

Rare, really rare and it’s almost always a graphic novel.  I’ll grab one and read it in an hour or so and then forget to put it in.

16. Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend – No

I don’t really borrow things period from friends.  It makes me nervous.

17. Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book – Not really

Most of my friends aren’t readers and if they are, then they only read “enlightening” Oprah Club books – so they side eye my YA and Middle-grade collection.

18. Broke the spine of someone else’s book – No

Read answer 16

19. Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged – Yes

My dog got a hold of a couple.  I have a safer spot now.

20. Sat on a book accidentally – Yeppers

I usually have a few on my bed, so yes.  

Results:  12/20 so I guess I’m a bad person LOL

Cute tag! I had fun doing one.  If I don’t tag you then please consider yourself tagged.  I never know who all to tag in these things. No pressure to do this, if it looks cool then great!

  1. YAS, thanks for tagging me lovely ❤
    Looks like such a fun tag do to.
    Loved reading your answers.

    I started to annotate in favorite books of mine of which I have multiple copies and I ended up loving it so so much. I always looked in horror when someone would do this in the past but it really has something nice to it I think. Now, when flipping through a book like that, I immediately come across favorite quotes and stuff like that and it's just awesome I think haha. You should really give it a go sometime!
