Bookish Naughty or Nice List [Blogmas]

The prompt of the day for this was book covers with red and green. I’m terrible at taking my own photos with the current camera I have so I thought I would do a book tag instead. I stole this tag from Ali @ Tea and Turned Pages. This may be my favorite book tag of the year because I can share whether I’m naughty or nice when it comes to books.

Here are the prompts! And I left a clean one down below so you can do this yourself if you feel so inclined.

• Received an ARC and not reviewed it

Oops. I have had authors send me copies of their book like without asking for it, and then I never get around to it. I have also had it happen a few times on NetGalley. If I ask for a copy via NetGalley or groups where indie authors are looking for reviews, I do my best to review the book. Except when I went on a request binge on NetGalley and requested a Christian romance, and I’m not religious so I didn’t read that one. I just left a vague review because I didn’t want my ratio to drop. Yikes, add another naughty thing to my list.

• Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

🚫

I’m currently around 80 %. I have worked so hard on my ratio because it was low for awhile. Right now I have 20 books to read on there with about 6 pending so we will see what happens soon. But for now, I’m doing well with this.

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

We are only human, right? I did this moreso when I was writing reviews for fun, and I did not have a blog. Now I try to do reviews whenever I can because I want to be honest about books I’m reading while also sharing my reviews with more people. I do it for my blog, too. I enjoy sharing my thoughts on books which is why I finally decided to do a blog this year as an actual venture I’m trying to stick with.

• Folded down the page of a book

I know, I’m a monster. I’ve done it to library books, which is worse. I am trying to get better so I have like 1200 bookmarks all around my house and in books so I’m forced to use them.

• Accidentially spilled on a book

I have done this with food, drink, and sneezes. The worst was last year when I was pregnant and was eating a tangerine and the juice squirted all over a brand new library book. So I had to blow dry the pages and flatten it out so the book wasn’t ruined. Now I try to be extra careful in general. Sometimes Ever tries to chew on my library books, but I keep them out of his reach for now.

• DNF a book this year

Ummmm… I’m guilty of this. I don’t have much to say except I’m more busy now with Ever so when I have time to read, I wanna enjoy what I read fully. I will force myself to finish books sometimes, but I’m learning DNFing is my friend too.

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

🚫

I don’t understand the hype of having 5 different copies of the same book just because they look nice. If it works for other people, awesome. I’m just too broke to do that.

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

✅✅✅

I’m still supposed to be preparing for grad school deadline in like eight days, and I’ve been to anxious so I’m reading all of the time instead.

• Skim read a book

Books can get boring, but I kinda wanna know what happened. So I skim read.

• Completely missed your Goodreads goal

🚫

I’ve hit my goal the last few years I’ve done it, and I’m proud of myself for that.

• Borrowed a book and not returned it

🚫

I would be mad if this happened to me, so I would never do this to anyone else. I forgot to return a library book when I moved to a new town, but when I moved back I returned it immediately. So I guess kind of but not really?

• Broke a book buying ban

Back when I had money to buy books, I would do it all the time. Now I just use the library or get free ones from Kindle.

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

🚫

Once I start writing a review, I have to finish it all of the way or I’d be annoyed with myself. I just knock them out as soon as I’m able so it’s fresh in my mind and I don’t have to do it later when I forget pertinent information.

• Wrote in a book you were reading

We used to have to annotate certain books when I was in college. I don’t do this now though.

• Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

🚫

I’m not a monster! This would bother me way too much. I’m anxious just thinking about it.

I’m am a lot more naughty than nice. Yikes. Guess I’ll be getting coal this year…
