Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
Tag another 10 people!
If you’ve not been tagged, go ahead and do it anyway!
✔ Received an ARC and not reviewed it
I’m at somewhere over 50 ARCs that are “past due” so I feel like I should get 50 check marks for this…
_ Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
Despite how many past due ARCs I have, I have a LOT turned in as well, so I’m actually at 77%!! Not quite at that mythical 80%, but close…
✔ Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
And they probably never will come… Sometimes you just gotta let it go.
_ Folded down the page of a book
I’m much more the find a scrap of paper or a receipt to stick in there type of person.
✔ Accidentally spilled on a book
If you haven’t, then you’re probably not optimizing your time and getting the most reading for your buck! Where’s the “dropped a book in the bathtub” option? LOL
✔ DNF a book this year
I don’t even consider this to be naughty. Life’s too short to read bad books.
✔ Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Uh, yup. I mean, I collect different editions of Sense & Sensibility but always read the same beat up edition, so I’ll never read the ones I buy just for their pretty covers… So does that count?
✔ Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)
✔ Skim read a book
I’m doing this with one of the books I’m currently reading, because I’m trying hard not to DNF it but it’s going to end up being a 1 or 2 star read. It’s pretty much the only way I’m going to get through it without DNFing…
_ Completely missed your Goodreads goal
Not this year! I actually increased it once already and am on track to meet (or exceed) the increased goal. *superhero pose*
✔ Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
I mean, it got there EVENTUALLY. But there were a lot of late fees. Like… a lot. (We are just talking THIS YEAR, right?)
_ Broke a book buying ban
Only because I no longer set myself book buying bans…
✔ Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
See the “Let It Go” response above, LOL
_ Wrote in a book you were reading
Why would you do this? Maybe if it was a textbook or something? …No, still, whyyyy would you do this?
_ Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
Not this year! I at least mark it as “Read” and give it a rating (or mark it “DNF”), otherwise I might not remember I read it and will pick it up and read it again and get halfway through and go “Wait a minute… I’ve been here before…”
✔ Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
I mean, I’ll return it once I’ve read it… Which just might take me a few years…
_ Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
You can absolutely borrow a book! …Just so long as I’ve already read it first.
_ Broke the spine of someone else’s book
I am a breaker of spines, I will admit, but I am careful with the books of others.
_ Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
No, I take the jacket off and put it somewhere safe. Somewhere so safe that I never find it again.
✔ Sat on a book accidentally
Can anyone honestly say they haven’t? Come on.
There’s no rating scale, so I’m not sure how naughty that makes me! 55% Naughty?
That seems like Gaston levels of Naughty.
