Naughty or Nice Book Tag

Posted December 23, 2019 by Kim in Discussion / 1 Comment

It’s been ages since I did a book tag post, but when I stumbled across the Naughty or Nice Book Tag one on Alex’s blog I knew I had to do it. Without even looking at the prompts, I’m going to just go ahead and assume I’ll be a naughty reader this year. Let’s find out!

The Rules

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you
  • 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!

The Tag

Here goes nothing! This should be fun.

Received an ARC and not reviewed it  ✅

Guilty. My eyes are often bigger than my reading capacity. I’m not proud. 

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

I’m sure I have at some point, but not this year. I’m floating right at the suggested 80% even though I have a lot of unread/unreviewed books. Like, A LOT. 

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

So, so many times. I’m terribly inconsistent when it comes to writing reviews.

Folded down the page of a book ✅

I’m sure I have with an ARC or two along the way. 

Accidentally spilled on a book ✅

Just ask my copies of The Right Swipe and Say You Still Love Me. I didn’t even get them home before The Great Coffee Incident occured.

DNF a book this year ✅

Several, actually. I’m an unapologetic DNF’er. If I’m not feeling a book, I’m not going to force myself to read it. 

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

Oh I am so very guilty of this. Multiple copies of Harry Potter — does it count if I’ve already read the book but not THAT particular copy — and every single used book sale/store I’ve visited. 

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

More often than I should admit, I’m sure. 

Skim read a book

I might skim a scene or two if it seems wordy or insignificant, but if I catch myself doing it more than once or twice I’ll just stop reading. It’s a good sign I’m not into the book. #moodreader

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Not recently. I mean, to be fair, I haven’t yet met my goal for 2019, but it’s manageable and there are still several days left. Other challenge reading goals, however? So guilty. 

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library

Heck no. I love libraries too much to do that. Late? Sure. Never? No. 

Broke a book buying ban 

I’ve only ever done one book buying ban and I made sure it was super specific. I don’t like setting myself up to fail, so when I did it I said it was only for *physical* books. 

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

Yes, yes I have. One of my goals for 2020 is to write reviews sooner after finishing a book. Even if it’s a short review. 

Wrote in a book you were reading

Aside from maybe when I was a kid? No freaking way. 

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I’m borderline obsessive about updating my reading on Goodreads, so I don’t think I’ve ever done this. It’s actually the only place I consistently update my reading.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

Not that I can remember. I wouldn’t want someone to do that to me, so why would I do it to them?

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book ✅

I’ve really tried to loosen up when it comes to lending books this year. I have several friends at work who read romance and I want to encourage that. I’m pretty generous at lending ARCs, but not finished copies. I am who I am. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Broke the spine of someone else’s book

What do you think I am? An animal? Of course not. 

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

I don’t read many hard covers, but yeah… I’ve definitely done this a time or two. 

Sat on a book accidentally ✅

Weird question, but I guess I probably have once or twice. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I certainly haven’t sat on a book intentionally. 😂

The Verdict

With a score of 11 naughty and 9 nice, I can safely say I was a naughty reader this year. Not the naughtiest, but still naughty. 😂

I Tag

Anyone who is interested! I hope you’ll link back to me so I can see your answers if you decide to do it. 😉

  1. Great list you have there. And loved getting your answers. Those ARC’s are so difficult to keep track of, I am always forgetting to read them. I am building up a personal library, so there are some books I am not sure I will ever get to. Maybe someday
