I’ve seen this tag popping on my feed many times this past week so when Lili @liliblissfulpages tagged me I was ready to dive in!
And let’s be honest today I really need something light to take my maind of “real life” problems.
Let’s get to the RULES
- Tag and link the person who tagged you
- Tag and link me (the creator) if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers – Jenn
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
- Tag another 10 people!
1.) RECEIVED AN ARC AND NOT REVIEWED IT √
One! Only one I swear. And it was not because I forgot to read and review but because I DNF.
2.) HAVE LESS THAN 60% FEEDBACK RATING ON NETGALLEY ×
Nope! Well above the 80% ratio!
3.) RATED A BOOK ON GOODREADS AND PROMISED A FULL REVIEW REVIEW WA STO COME ON YOUR BLOG AND NEVER DID ×
Nope! I’ve always given a fuul review when I promised.
4.) FOLDED DOWN THE PAGE OF A BOOK √
Guilty your honor! But these are tiny tiny creases in the book I swear! Just a way for me to recall some sentences or favorite scenes to reproduce in my reviews. Then I nearly iron everything out!
5.) ACCIDENTALLY SPILLED ON A BOOK ×
Never! See I am not that bad with my books!
6.) DNF’D A BOOK THIS YEAR √
Sadly yes. And it was one I wanted to read for years as it was so hyped but The Captive Prince was not for me…
7.) BOUGHT A BOOK PURELY BECAUSE IT WAS PRETTY WITH NO INTENTION OF READING IT ×
Ah no! Even if I am a cover lover the blurb has to seem interesting to have me buy the book. Of course a gorgeous cover will playa role in my buying decision but not the only reason why I’d buy!
8.) READ WHILST YOU WERE MEANT TO BE DOING SOMETHING ELSE (LIKE HOMEWORK) √
Can I answer …all the time??? I even hide in the loo, yes yes the loo or the lavatory if you’d prefer, as it is the only place my kids/hubs/dog won’t disturb me while reading. And even that the dog want to join in on the fun.
I think live is too short to spend it on chores when I have a very good book to read!
9.) SKIM READ A BOOK √
If I plan on DNF but want to know how it ends I will skim it to have an idea because I don’t like unfinished business!
10.) COMPLETELY MISSED YOUR GOODREADS GOAL ×
No! I had a 100 books goal and I am at 113 books read so far! So it’s been a success.
11.) BORROWED A BOOK FROM THE LIBRARY AND NOT RETURNED IT ×
Nope. Simply because I never go to the library…I know this will be my ruin but no library has books in English in my town (or rather that are not “The Great Gatsby”, “39 steps” etc.)
12.) BROKE A BOOK BUYING BAN √
Yes. I was on a book buying ban on November and broke the ban on Black Friday to buy Honor Among Thieves with a 50% discount!
13.) STARTED A REVIEW, LEFT IT FOR AGES, THEN FORGOT WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT ×
Never. Because I always write my reviews the day I end my read less I forget everything!
14.) WROTE IN A BOOK YOU WERE READING ×
Never, ever, ever!!!!!!
15.) FINISHED A BOOK AND NOT ADDED IT TO YOUR GOODREADS √
Yes. When I am on holiday I do tend to forget to add all the books that I’ve read.
16.) BORROWED A BOOK AND NOT RETURNED IT TO A FRIEND ×
As I rather am the lender than the borrower I can answer with NEVER!
17.) DODGED SOMEONE ASKING IF THEY CAN BORROW A BOOK ×
Never! If I don’t trust that person to take good care of my book I simply refuse to lend it. Pure and simple.
18.) BROKE THE SPINE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S BOOK ×
Oh Gosh no! I would hear the book scream for months!!!! What kind of a monster do you think I am?
19.) TOOK THE JACKET OFF A BOOK AND ENDED UP MAKING IT MORE DAMAGED ×
No! Neither the jacket that I will tenderly keep it safe nor the book itself as I’ve discovered book sleeves thanks to blogging!
20.) SAT ON A BOOK ACCIDENTALLY ×
Never! Once again I know that I sometimes fold a little the corners of my books but I don’t crush these poor babies with my glorious behind!
7 naughty and 13 nice… I’d say I am a nice girl and I am the first suprised!
I don’t feel like tagging anyone as I am too exhausted but if you want to do it consider you tagged!
Thanks for reading!
