Book Tag, Books!, Signal Boost

Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Hey all, Dani here.

As it is rapidly approaching Christmastime, I figured it was time to do a few fun and festive book tags, and thankfully I was tagged for a couple and could rearrange my blog schedule enough to fit them in.

This is one of a couple holiday themed posts I was tagged to do by Amber at Step Into a Book World, so go check out her blog because it is awesome. Also, the original creator of this post is Jenn over at A Page of Jenniely, so go check out her page as well.

All right, let’s just jump right into the rules and then the questions.

THE RULES:

  • CREDIT THE PERSON WHO TAGGED YOU AND LINK THEIR POST

  • TAG THE ORIGINAL CREATOR AND THEIR POST

  • TICK THE ONES YOU’VE DONE

  • CROSS THE ONES YOU HAVEN’T

  • TAG MORE BLOGGERS!

Naughty

 

1.) Received an ARC and not reviewed it  

✔️

❌I honestly don’t know how to answer this one. There are a few ARCs I have that I haven’t reviewed…BUT, I am working on getting around to them. Some just take longer than others.

 

 

2.) Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

❌

 

I can honestly say that I try not to let it get down that low. Though currently I’m at like 70% and I’m not wholly pleased about that so I need to get moving on reading and reviewing some of them.

3.) Rated a book on GoodReads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)  

❌

 

Well, my Goodreads is under my birth name, not the pen name I use for blogging and publishing so I can’t promise a full review to come on my blog. 

4.) Folded down the page of a book

❌

 

Absolutely not! I’ve been known to give bookmarks to people I see folding down pages.

5.) Accidentally spilled on a book

✔️

 

This one is a little iffy for me because it isn’t an actual spill…more like a little dribble, you know a drop or two of water or something.

6.) DNF a book this year

 

✔️

 

Yep, one….King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard.

7.) Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it

❌

 

I buy books to read them, not to sit and look pretty somewhere.

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

✔️

 

Look, I like to give myself reading breaks from tasks like chores/cleaning or homework or whatever. 

9.) Skim read a book

❌

 

I know that sometimes it looks like I’m skim reading a book, but I have a pretty fast reading speed so no, I like to fully read my books. Now, I may skim through some places during rereads, but even then it isn’t all that likely to happen.

10.) Completely missed your GoodReads goal

❌

 

I usually have to increase my goal 3 or 4 times a year.

11.) Borrowed a book and not returned it

❌

 

No, though my brother’s dog didn’t chew up the cover of one of my library books once and I had to pay for a replacement copy.

12.) Broke a book buying ban

✔️

 

The only time I have truly succeeded on a book buying ban was when I was unemployed and therefore had no money to spend on books. So now I simply tell myself instead of a ban I am restricted only to books I have on my auto-buy or highly anticipated list. Everything else has to wait.

13.) Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about

❌

 

Not exactly, because I typically at least remember the main points of the books I’ve read.

14.) Wrote in a book you were reading

❌

 

Ugh, no! Well, unless it is a work book because those are meant to be written in.

15.) Finished a book and not added it to your GoodReads

✔️

 

Technically yes, but that is mostly because the book wasn’t listed on Goodreads at the time.


And that’s all for the post today. Since we are so near the holidays, I don’t want to specifically tag anyone, but if this sounds fun and you’d like to do it, then I TAG YOU! Have fun and Happy Holidays!
