Naughty, or nice? This is the question. Jack tagged me, so let’s find it out!
Received an ARC and not reviewed it
Oh, for sure! Some of them were just truly terrible and I couldn’t even bear the thought of reading them, let alone come up with something coherent to say about them. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
As I confessed not so long ago, occasionally I go to great lengths to avoid the responsibility of reviewing books I was meant to read.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
Nah, not me! By some miracle I managed to score 73%. It took a lot of restraint though, because they always have something on offer I want to get my grubby hands on.
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
I never promise, and never explain. You can’t fail a promise you didn’t make, can you?
Folded down the page of a book
I do have some books with pages folded down though, because my friend loves doing this.
Accidentally spilled on a book
Sort of? I had a cat called Wesley who probably suffered from the cat version of ADHD and would pretty much fly around the room like Superman on cocaine. One time, he landed on my desk where I was colouring and somersaulted into my breakfast, kicking my coffee in my face and all over my book. It was fuckin’ spectacular.
DNF a book this year
Obviously. Don’t see how it’s naughty though?!
Bought a book because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Well, I always tried to convince myself that eventually I will read them, but yes… yes, I also have never really believed that lie.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else
Nah. I’m always meant to be reading. It did happen that I was working whilst I was meant to be reading. In fact, it does happen quite regularly, and I find it quite inconvenient.
Skim read a book
You bet! It usually goes hand in hand with shameless DNF cases, but sometimes books I really enjoy have boring passages.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
Nope! I never set unattainable goals. I have my boss for that.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
Apparently I borrowed a book from the school library and never returned it. At least, I can’t see another explanation for owning a book with the school library’s stamp in it…
Broke a book buying ban
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
Maybe? Fuck me, if I remember…
Wrote in a book you were reading
Nah. Books don’t have enough empty space to accommodate my sprawling thoughts and snarky remarks. I do love making notes on Kindle though.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
When I started reading books, Goodreads didn’t even exist, so it’s highly likely.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
Yes. She borrowed it from her library. Do I get double naughty points now?
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
Hell, yes! I had a friend who would not only borrow a book and then sit on it for ages, but also passed it around to other people and eventually returned them, looking like a fuckin’ lettuce.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
I’m not a monster.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ending up making it even more damaged
Sat on a book accidentally
Well, no, but I did trip over some, not even once.
Naughty: 10 | Nice: 10
Aren’t I just a well balanced bookworm?
Considering that I’m pretty late to this party, Christmas time is pretty much upon us, and most of you have probably already done this, I won’t specifically nominate anyone this time, but if you feel like having a go at this, let me know!
