Time to confess all of my bookish sins…
I saw this tag on Secret Library Book Blog and thought it looked fun especially as I feel like doing some fun tags this year 🙂 It was originally created by A Page of Jenniely and was supposed to be about being on the Christmas naughty list for book sins. As ever there are rules which are as follows:
- Tag & link the person who tagged you
- Tag and link the creator of the tag.
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done (Or just put yes or no)
- Tag another 10 people!
If you’ve not been tagged, go ahead and do it anyway!
As you well know I don’t enjoy tagging people so I won’t be doing that, and the link to me or the original creator would be nice 😉 Although it is a more book blogger than just reader tag, please do still take part if you like it, and let’s see how many naughty points I (and you) get 😮
Bookish Naughty List Tag
1.Received an ARC and not reviewed it? Yes
Oh dear, but this is true. I first fell behind with the ARCs when I took too many from NetGalley and then went through a time where I couldn’t review any books for a bit. You maybe didn’t notice as I managed to fill in my blog posts with other content or kids books but sometimes that’s because it’s taking me time to read a fiction or non-fiction book. Apart from a couple of NetGalley ARCs still unread and unreviewed I also have a couple of physical books which are a few months overdue 😮 …though I do review them…eventually!
2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley? Yes now, before No
I had this a while ago when I had taken out too many, I ended up with 56% for a while. But now I’m happily above that figure and it’s never going to go down again as I barely use NetGalley anymore 🙂
3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)? No
I only rate books when I’m also adding a review.
4. Folded down the page of a book? No
No way! I could never do that, I love books too much to damage them in any way (unless it’s a personal notebook) and how terrible are you people who do 😡 lol
5. Accidentally spilled on a book? No
No, I’m a bit of a worrier and never keep my drinks near my books in case this happens.
6. DNF a book this year? No
Well not so far no. I try to finish all books, although last year I did give up on one (but I also didn’t bother marking it as ‘currently reading’ so nobody knows which book it is 😛 )
7. Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it? Erm…no?
Do people do that? I have bought a book because it looked beautiful/amazing, but I had to be interested in reading it to buy it.
8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)? Yes
I’m kinda guilty of doing this a lot when the plot becomes good.
9. Skim read a book? Yes/No
I skim read through the geology and glaciology parts of The Fight For Everest 1924(for reasons I explained in my review), but usually no.
10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal? Yes/No
Yes I failed last year’s Goodreads Reading Challenge but I only just realised how to mark books properly, and if I’d marked all of the picture books as ‘read in 2017’ I would have passed it…silly me
11. Borrowed a book and not returned it? No
I’ve never done this, although I’ve been a bit late in returning something years ago, I don’t like to leave it lingering these days and just return the books to the library or a friend whether I’ve read them or not.
12. Broke a book buying ban? No
No, because I’ve never put myself on a ban in the first place 😀
13. Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about? Yes
Although I’ve never technically started a review and left it, I have read a book a long time ago and then forgot to review it for a long time. When I came back to it I could only remember half of the details and a general gist of how I felt reading it…I still wrote the review without the book though (as it had expired on NetGalley 😮 ) Weeks later I got hold of a copy and read back the book (thankfully wasn’t a long one) and the amazing thing is, my review was still good enough anyway and I haven’t changed it 😛 lol
14. Wrote in a book you were reading? No
No, only in a workbook type book but never in a reading only book (unless you count old school books for English Literature where we were told what to write and where? Though those books were already filled with pencilled in notes so that doesn’t really count).
15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads? Yes
Yes, yes, very guilty! I list the books I’m reading but the short books or picture books I keep forgetting to add…I’m notoriously late with anything on Goodreads, oops!
So…I’m guilty of about half of these bookish ‘sins’! And if you’re guilty of any of these why not tag yourself or let me know in the comments below what you’re guilty of? 😛
So how did you do with this fun tag? Are there any other ‘sins’ you can think of? Let me know on the comments, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
