Morning, book nerds!
Can I mention we have only 2 weeks until Christmas? I’ve been counting down the days, and I can’t fathom how quickly the holidays are speeding up so quickly.
I wanted to save this post for my 12 Days of Blogmas. But since Teagan and Jess from Fiction No Chaser tagged me, I couldn’t resist. I’ve been waiting for a Christmas-themed tag! And it’s such a great one. Thank you, dearies!
- Tag & link the person who tagged you
- Tag and link me/this post (if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers!)
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
- Tag another 10 people!
The List | Check It Twice
Received an ARC and not reviewed it
Thankfully, I’m pretty good with finishing ARCs on time.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley ✔
LOL, I have a NetGalley account, but I haven’t used it yet.
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) ✔
Honestly, I have so many reviews saying “RTC” that I’m surprised someone hasn’t bothered me yet.
Folded down the page of a book ✔
I used to be bad with this habit. But now, I just use bookmarks.
Accidentally spilled on a book ✔
I spilled some water on my hardcover copy of A Darker Shade of Magic, and I still feel horrible.
DNF a book this year ✔
I don’t see DNFing as a bad thing though. I’ve given a lot of time to books that didn’t keep me interested. I need to DNF more titles.
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it ✔
My most recent book purchase is the collector’s edition of Throne of Glass. So you know my answer.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) ✔ ✔ ✔
I pull this off almost every week. I am such a procrastinator that I’m surprised I’m not behind on everything in my life.
Skim read a book ✔
Obviously, I can’t skim an entire book, but if there are sections that are boring, or I want to find out what happens to a particular character, then I definitely skim.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
Well, if you give me a few more weeks, then perhaps, I’ll fail this year’s goal. I’m about 2 books behind. 😭
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
Since my local library doesn’t always update its book collection, I rarely use it.
Broke a book buying ban ✔
I am not a measly peasant (more likely, I am), so book bans do not concern me. So the answer’s yes. 😅
Started a review, left it for ages, then forgot what the book was about ✔ ✔ ✔
I believe I have about 3 or 5 reviews in my Draft’s folder that can wholeheartedly agree with my statement. I am horrible when writing reviews.
Wrote in a book you were reading
Neva. Never. Never. Textbooks, sure. Well, okay, there was one mandatory school book I wrote in and informed the next readers they’ll be utterly bored as I was. But other than that time, I usually don’t.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
One of the only reasons why I use Goodreads is to update my lists.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend ✔
Okay, I can explain. Truly, I can. I borrowed several books from a former friend who has refused to talk to me, so how can I return the books?
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book ✔
ALL THE TIME. No one else touches my babies. No one.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THAT?! I can’t break my own.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged ✔
Why must this tragedy happen? You’d think that it’d be safe. But no. Life is cruel, and it aims to hurt my babies and their jackets.
Sat on a book accidentally ✔
I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I am such a stickler for keeping my books in excellent condition.
My Final Score: Nice: 6, Naughty: 14
Am I surprised? Not a single bit.
You know the drill. If you don’t feel up to doing this tag, don’t feel like you must do it since I’ve tagged you. If I haven’t tagged you, and you want to do it, go ahead! Either way, if you do, link back to my post! I’d love to see your results.
