Naughty or Nice – Book Tag

Hello , you guys ! How is 2019 ? ( I hope yours is as bad as mine is . Yeah , I’m mean )

Firstly , even though I tagged myself to it I found it on Sofie’s post at Book a Thought . Check her out , she’s super cool ! ( Better than me , duh ! )

Okay , it seems we’ve got rules around here :

  • Tag the person who tagged you : Me
  • Tag the person who created it : Jenniely
  • Tick or Cross the ones you’ve done : I’ll use both .
  • Tag ten other people : Sure !

Received an ARC and not reviewed it   

Ofcourse ! I thought everyone had those ARCS in the corners . No ? NO ?? Is it just me , then ? Fine . But basically , I don’t really get them without wanting them but …well , you know , I just can’t get through some of them *nervous laugh * . I should reduce the ARCS I let go unread *hopefully* .

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley 

Big Reveal : I don’t use Netgalley . I sure have an account in there but Im too lazy to search up titles , then wait to get approved , etc . I solemnly swear to begin using it . I mean , you guys all use it and I feel like I’m living under a rock . Or in mars .

Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)

Nope . I hate those reviews that say , ” check full reviews on my blog ” . Guess what ? I just came on goodreads despite my favourite blogger telling me that it is a crappy book to see public opinion and you think I’m going to be clicking on your link ? I think it’s better to give your full review and then link your blog . Who knows , people might love your review style .

Folded down the page of a book 

…..Yes . I’m guilty of it * ducks behind a book * . It’s all accidental , I swear ! I sometimes get super agitated about books or I’m dying to burn the book…and I somehow end up folding the book at an angle . Or end up sitting on open books without realising . Come , you’ve all done it . Admit it !

Accidentally spilled on a book 

These are also accidental cases where I’m eating and suddenly those chunks of food appear out of nowhere in my book pages and…well , I have no idea how my food spills . I should stop eating while reading .

DNF a book this year 

I’m the proud DNF-er of so many books that I don’t remember any of it . Since I haven’t had time to DNF in 2019 , I’ll answer for 2018 . My 2018 reading was bad and I didn’t even add my DNF’s to goodreads . But here’s what I remember DNF-ing : 

  • Feversong by Karen Marie Moning 
  • Always you by Missy Jhonson ( I hope to take this one up again ) 
  • The Smallest Part by Amy 

Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it 

Hey , it wasn’t my mistake . Ask the person who designed it . A Thousand Pieces Of You by Claudia Grey was a book I bought only because of the cover , and nope , I didn’t have much interest at the bookstore but I read it anyway because later , my heart fell for the summary . Fell and broke . 

Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) 

Yeah , my study time officially consists of alternating between textbooks and fiction books .

Skim read a book 

Ofcourse  . I think I do that to all books . The descriptions of the place , the aromatic smell of their exotic food , blah blah blah  and oh , I told you about the wines in Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness . Yeah , I can’t tolerate them . 

Completely missed your Goodreads goal 

Last year was the worst year for my reading ever since I took up reading . I set my goal at 200 ( which is completely attainable ) , but I didn’t get a lot of time last year and I didn’t set goals this year . I don’t have much time this year either , which sucks .

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library 

Another Reveal : I don’t even remember having visited a library . I just discovered the town library in here 3 months ago but I still haven’t stepped in there because..well , I don’t expect to find much there . I live in a small town and the libraries in smalltowns always suck . 

Broke a book buying ban 

Nope , because I’m literally broke and I’m living off my parents’ money at the moment and it’s usually my mom who imposes the buying bans . 

Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about 

Yes . I always think , yeah I’ll remember all the stuff I want to write and then totally forget that I have a review to write . That’s why you never see reviews after it shows ‘read’ on my goodreads page . 

Wrote in a book you were reading 

I’m partially guilty of it , because I take notes on my textbook . I don’t think it counts here. SO , yeah , I hate writing anything on my fiction . 

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads 

I just told you I do that . What , like you’ve never done it before . I always end up being too lazy to add them to goodreads and now I have no idea what book I’ve read and what I haven’t . Bad life , I  know . 

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend 

This is a crime you should never commit or I’ll call the book police . It hurts so much to never see your book again , so I’d never inflict that on anyone . 

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book 

Nope . But not for lack of trying . People always have a way around my ‘dodging ‘ . But if you’re a friend of mine , please don’t borrow my books . I die every night thinking about if my book will get damaged at your hands . 

Broke the spine of someone else’s book 

Nope . Will never inflict that on someone either . 

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

I don’t have enough guts to remove it nor will I ever pull that on myself . 

Sat on a book accidentally 

All the time . I swear the books only appear when I’m already halfway to sitting . No , someone is plotting to make me sit on my books to damage them . 

Final Score: 11/20

I’m naughty , apparently . What are you ? 

I’d love to see you guys do it . I tag everyone that sees this post to do it . I dare you to do it without embarrassment . And if you’ve got time , I also dare you to do Why The Book People Hate Me – Book Tag , too . 

I like new friends , too . Let’s meet at: Facebook Twitter Instagram
