I was tagged by Melanie from meltotheany to do this tag! Thankyou so much angel! This tag was created by Jenniely’s blog, and I thought since it’s CHRISTMAS EVE (what the fuck!) this is the perfect time to do this little tag. Lets get into it!
➽ 1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it
Uhhh …. yes. And I feel VERY guilty about it and I WILL work on it in 2019. Sometimes the date for release just passes and I haven’t read it yet and then I get super overwhelmed and don’t do it … it’s so bad and I’m so ashamed. Luckily, I haven’t done this in a while.
➽ 2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
Nope! Mine is currently at 75%. I don’t use Netgalley much though.
➽ 3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
YES SO MANY TIMES IT’S RIDICULOUS. I really don’t like writing reviews unless I’m in the mood for it so sometimes it just doesn’t happen
➽ 4. Folded down the page of a book
Yeah I dog ear my uni books because I need to save the pages to pull quotes and things for the exam.
➽ 5. Accidentally spilled something on a book
I don’t … think so? I feel I would remember. I don’t eat/drink when reading. If I have done this probably only water.
➽ 6. DNF a book this year
YES. I used to not do this but this year I decided to just dnf books I’m not liking and it’s great. The last book I dnf’ed was The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock
➽ 7. Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Ahh … no. I don’t really have much money for books so if I’m getting one I’m reading it for sure. And most the time I buy books I’ve already read.
➽ 8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)
Oh so many times. Especially with audiobooks because I tell myself I can do two things at once.
➽ 9. Skim read a book
Yes! I do this all the time if I get into a characters chapter I don’t like
➽ 10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal
I haven’t ever done this before, but I think I’m going to miss this years which will be the first.
➽ 11. Borrowed a book and not returned it
Yes. Once I borrowed a friends book for ages and only returned it years later …. and I have also lost a library book once (EEK)
➽ 12. Broke a book buying ban
I don’t do these so no
➽ 13. Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
SO MANY TIMES. The review of Little & Lion in particular haunts me because of this. I think I need to reread so I can review it.
➽ 14. Wrote in a book you were reading
I’ve written in uni books with pencil and that is my LIMIT. My writing is so messy I’m too scared to annotate my books even though I like the concept of it.
➽ 15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
Fanfic? yes because it’s never on Goodreads. But actual books? Heck no I need the reading challenge numbers.
➽ 16. Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
Yeah, same story as above. It was The Death Cure whoops
➽ 17. Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
YES BECAUSE I DON’T TRUST PEOPLE. Last time I lent a book (Leah on the Offbeat) it came back with a creased dust jacket and I’m still mad
➽ 18. Broke the spine of someone else’s book
No way I’m not a monster
➽ 19. Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
Nah I don’t own many hardbacks anyways and if I do have one I protect that jacket with my LIFE.
➽ 20. Sat on a book accidentally
I feel this is definitely a yes. I always have random books lying around so seems likely.
That is the entire tag for today! This was so short and sweet I love it. I feel I may definitely be on the naughty side but I’m trying to be good!
If you’d like to do this tag, feel free to consider yourself tagged. I’d love to see your responses to these questions.
until next time!
