Was I tagged for this two years ago? Yes, I totally was. Since this is the Naughty or Nice Tag, I figured I should come clean right away … you know, as a precaution. However, I really want to thank the orang-utan librarian regardless, because I love getting tagged (even if I am perpetually late) and their blog is absolutely top notch!
- Tag & link the person who tagged you.
- Tag and link Jenniely’s post, for she’s love to read everyone’s answers!
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
- Tag another 10 people. (I am going to skip this step and just invite anyone who wants to do this to go ahead and consider themselves tagged!)
Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✔
To start out, I want to say that I have never actually received a physical ARC. If we are taking eARCs into consideration as well though, there may have been 2-3 I didn’t end up reviewing. Look, I am not proud of it, but I didn’t enjoy them and didn’t even finish the books, which made me feel like I shouldn’t review them.
Have a less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
100% BABY!!!! I never thought it would happen, but I have been super diligent since I barely get approved anyway.
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
I don’t think so? Correct me if you remember that differently, but I can’t recall doing that.
Folded down a page of a book ✔
I don’t like having my books dogeared or bent, folded, otherwise altered … but I guess I have done it at some point. No denying it unfortunately.
Accidentally spilled on a book ✔
School books … yeah. (They were my own and not ones returned to the school after the term or anything like that). I hated it so much though.
DNF a book this year
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it ✔
Sometimes they’re just so pretty. I want them. And then … I never read them. Maybe I intend to read them, but just don’t end up doing it …
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like e.g. homework) ✔
Oh, I have definitely done that. So sure.
Skim read a book ✔
Again … school books … cause I could not care.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
I once adjusted a goal … but like a month before the end of the year and not because I was missing it by A LOT. So, I’d say that doesn’t count.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
Aside from the fact that libraries aren’t my biggest friends in my country because they have none of the books I want, I think the last time I borrowed something was in elementary school. They would not have let it slide if I hadn’t returned that.
Broke a book buying ban ✔
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about ✔
I don’t remember what book exactly that would have been about, but I am so sure it happened at some point. Although … I probably never started the review to begin with, I just put off writing it in general until I forgot.
Wrote in a book you were reading ✔
I have books where you’re SUPPOSED to write in them. So … I have! AND I was meant to do that!
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
If so, not on purpose and not that I can remember.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
Since I would never want anyone to do that to me, I would never not return a book. NEVER.
Dodged someone asking if they could borrow a book ✔
I know that I like my books way more pristine looking than the majority and if you want to have your book look well-read, that’s totally cool. But I want mine looking like they’re fresh off the press. And since a friend once had the contents of basically an entire pool dumped on a book she was borrowing from me and then tried to give it back to me like it was no big deal … I tend to avoid that stuff.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
I would NEVER!
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
Sat on a book accidentally ✔
Definitely. But nothing happened. No books were harmed in the process.
