Hello everyone! How are you today? I hope you’re having a lovely day 🙂
December is upon us so I thought it’d be fun to do a Christmas tag! I found this on Jackie’s blog @bookishcoffeeblog and had fun reading it and wanted to do my own. The creator of the tag is over on Jenniely’s blog.
It’s time to see if I’m in the good books or on the naughty list.
- 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!
Received an ARC and not reviewed it
Actually it’s funny I’ve neglected my Netgalley account until recently where I’ve become more active on it again and found books I still hadn’t reviewed (some of these I read but not reviewed, others I hadn’t even read yet). So definitely done this.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
I’ve just scraped through with 65% rating!
Rated a book on goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
Nah, I’ve never said anything like that. On Goodreads I just write whatever or even nothing at all. On my blog, if I feel like it, I might write a small paragraph.
Folded down the page of a book
I’m gonna say yes to this. I used to do this when I was younger but don’t anymore but I’ll still count it as a yes.
Accidentally spilled on a book
I may have dropped crumbs here and there from food but never spilled anything. I’m very cautious of that ’cause I know I’ll feel so sad if that ever happened haha.
DNF a book this year
Hmmm this isn’t technically a DNF but kinda is (I don’t know). I did put down a book because I wasn’t in the mood and also because I read it soon after I finished the tv series so I wanted something new.
I’m gonna go with yes but not because I wasn’t enjoying it but wanted a new story.
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
I’ll admit it a beautiful cover draws me in. I know they say don’t judge a book by its cover but you can’t help but be drawn if they cover is so pretty.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)
ALL. THE. TIME. That’s just me, an easy yes.
Skim read a book
I am guilty of that but it happens mainly when it’s a non-fiction book. I do find myself skimming or trying to read more quickly then needing to backtrack and reread.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
Not in the previous years but I feel like this year I might miss my goal as I need to read like another 30 books before the year is out to reach it!
Borrowed a book and not returned it
I’m pretty good at always returning books and don’t really borrow much to begin with as I have so many books I already own that needs to be read.
Broke a book buying ban
I’ve never put myself on a book buying ban…maybe I should haha. I’ve been pretty good with buying books and only get them if I really want to read them.
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
Again if I do review it’s normally in that moment otherwise I don’t start a review in general in case something like this happens.
Wrote in a book you were reading
I’ve never written in my books, if anything I write it on a sticky note to put in the book.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
There are books on my Kindle that I haven’t added to Goodreads (that’s all I’ll say lol).
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
I don’t really borrow books much as I have so much to read on my shelves already and even that keeps piling up.
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
If someone wants to borrow and read one of my books I don’t say no. Not many people borrow my books anyway so it doesn’t matter.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
I don’t really borrow other people’s books so I’ll say no to this.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
I feel like one of my cats have found it lying on my desk and I swear they do it to get at me. It’ll end up with a bite mark or rip. You can tell what books I have read as there might be a bite mark in the corner. They know to target my books I swear.
Sat on a book accidentally
I just sit down sometimes without properly looking down and have sat on a book or two. I leave books all over the place.
Okay everyone let’s see….my final total is:
I think I have just snuck in and secured my place onto the good list this year. Not bad I’ll take that!
Feel free to do this tag as well, I love doing tags like these!
Until next time…
