- Tag & link the person who tagged you (um, no one)
- Tag and link me/this post (if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers!)
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
- Tag another 10 people! (I don’t think I even know ten people!)
Received an ARC and not reviewed it: Yes, but’s that’s only because I like to review books closer to their release date. I should work on that.
Have a less than 60% feedback ratio on NetGalley: Unfortunately, the answer to this one is yes. And that’s because of the same answer above. I’m also behind by one book. Sigh.
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did): I can honestly say I have never done this. I don’t really write reviews on Goodreads, and if I do, it’s the same thing you would find on my blog so…yeah.
Folded down the page of a book: Yes. When I was younger. It leads to tearing and ripping on my part so I stopped doing it.
Accidentally spilled on a book: No, thank goodness. Now other people have spilled on my books and I have never forgiven them. But yeah, not me.
DNF a book this year: That’s a big affirmative.
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it: Yes. I have an illustrated copy of The Hobbit that I got purely for the aesthetics.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework): Um, yes. Almost all the time. I mean, who needs sleep?
Skim read a book: No. I dislike skim reading. If I generally dislike a book enough to be tempted to skim it, I just stop reading.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal: Yes, though I met it this year. Go me!
Borrowed a book and not returned it: Never. Libraries are sacred places. You should always return your books!
Broke a book buying ban: Am I breathing? Then yes, yes I have. And I will continue to do so to the point that I will ban myself from doing book buying bans.
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about: Nope. I tend to sit down a write a review as soon as I finish the book so I don’t forget what it is I was reading.
Wrote in a book you were reading: I can honestly say I have not. Have I thought about it? Sure. That temptation usually passes me by.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads: In my past, yes. My Goodreads from years past is a mess. I am much better at keeping up with it now. Of course, this means I’m posting what I’m reading on both Goodreads and The Storygraph.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend: Only once. And I am bound and determined to get that book back to her. I just saw her a few months ago too! I missed my golden opportunity!
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book: No. But that’s because I just outright say no.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book: Nope. At least, not that I can remember.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged: Yes. But my cat did it. I have since learned to put the dust jackets back on the books when I am not reading them.
Sat on a book accidentally: Of course. Who hasn’t? Liars, that’s who.
My score is 11 out of 10, so I’m naughty, but also nice? But mostly naughty. Guess I’m getting coal in my stocking this year!
If you would like to do this tag, go on and give it a go! I had a lot of fun doing it. It’s always amusing to admit you forgot to give a book back.
Ha. Ha ha.
