Christmas is only two days away which seems completely ridiculous – almost as ridiculous as the fact it is two days before Christmas and I haven’t done a holiday book tag at all yet! That changes today!
I’ve been seeing this book tag everywhere and I just couldn’t resist giving it ago! I have this strange feeling I’m going to be on the naughty list this year…..
The original tag was created by the fantastic Jenn @ Jenniely and you all should definitely go and give her some love if you’re not already! Also a big thank you to Beth @ Reading Every Night and Kelly @ Just Another Book In The Wall whose own posts for this book tag inspired me to do my own!
Received an ARC and not reviewed it? ✔
Um, yeah. I’ve tried my hardest to read and review every ARC I request or receive but I have terrible time management and read by mood, which means I suck terribly at this.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley? ✔
Another yes. See above for the reason why. Whoops.
Rated a book on goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)?
Actually, no. I only review books on goodreads if I’ve written a full review on my blog. I feel like I need to have all my ideas written out and decided upon before I start rating how I feel about a book.
Folded down the page of a book?
I would never deface a book like this (anymore)!
Accidentally spilled on a book?
I haven’t as of yet but the year isn’t over yet and I am incredibly clumsy so….
DNF a book this year?
Nope! I’ve actually had a good run with reading this year (when I wasn’t in a slump).
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it? ✔
Only once. I have a special edition of Peter Pan and its beautiful with loads of things to touch and interact with but I will never touch it in case I break something.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)? ✔
All the time. I am the worst procrastinator.
Skim read a book? ✔
Yeah, usually when I’m trying to get to the end of my page before the train pulls in at my stop.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal? ✔
Borrowed a book and not returned it?
I would never! If someone did that to me, I would be heartbroken.
Broke a book buying ban? ✔
Every single time.
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about? ✔
…Let’s just say in a few days, you’ll be reading the result of this.
Wrote in a book you were reading? ✔
For school, yes, but never for leisure reading.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads?
Nah. I might add it late, but I’ll add it at some point.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend?
Same thing as before, I would be so sad if someone did this to me so no.
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book? ✔
Probably. Usually, children at work asking. I trust them but not that much.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book?
Never! I try my hardest not to break the spine of any book.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged?
Nope! I have however spend a day trying to protect a book from damage and then rip the jacket on the journey home from work. It was quite distressing.
Sat on a book accidentally? ✔
Yeah. I don’t always look where I’m sitting.
And the final score is *drum roll* …..
So I am on the naughty list – I called that one! It was very close though, I’ll have to do better next year! How many of you ended up on the book lover naughty list?
If you want to do this, I am tagging you! Drop me a comment when you’ve made your post so I can check it out!
