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 .
