12 Days of Tags – Day 1 – Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

I have been AWFUL at keeping up with Tags lately.  I know I don’t HAVE to do them, but I WANT to do them! I have about 20 in my backlog that I keep putting off for whatever reason, so I have decided to bust them all out in 12 days! Can I do 20 Tags in 12 Days?  Stay tuned!!


Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

I was actually tagged twice for this, so I get to knock out 2 of my 20 tags in one post!  I was tagged by Whitney @ Whit Reads Lit and Siobhan @ Novelties. Both these blogs are awesome and you should go check them out! Also they both have amazing blog header pictures and I am slightly jealous!

RULES:

  • 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!

Received an ARC and not reviewed it

❌ ✔️

I got a couple ARCs while I was at Denver Comic Con but they were given away with no expectations, and I made no promises to review them.  So I have received an ARC and not reviewed it, but its under acceptable circumstances.

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

Somehow I have a 110% rating on Netgalley.  It says I have only been approved for 10 books but I have sent reviews in for 11.  I am not sure how that happened because I have only reviewed the books they gave me to read.

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

I have plenty of books I have rated but not reviewed but I have never promised to review them, so my hands are still clean!

Folded down the page of a book

✔️

I am completely guilty of this

Accidentally spilled on a book

✔️

Been there done that

DNF a book this year

✔️

I know I have, but for the life of me I can’t remember which ones?

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

✔️

I have bought a lot of Pride and Prejudice editions that are too pretty to read.  I have a couple boring copies that I use as reader copies!

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

✔️

ALL. THE. TIME.

Skim read a book

I don’t actually have the ability to do this.

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

This is only the second year I have had a Goodreads goal.  Last year I made it by reading a bunch of Children’s books, so I lowered it this year, and I am on track to make it!

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library

I have borrowed a book from a friend and not returned it, but never the Library! They charge fees!

Broke a book buying ban

No, only because I have never been on a book buying ban!

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

✔️

I am going to give this one a check even tho I have never actually started a review and not finished it.  I am, however, guilty of putting off my review and then forgetting what the book was about.

Wrote in a book you were reading

✔️

I have only done this once.  I bought the book and decided I was going to take notes in it, but it ended up being to much work and I got bored and never finished the book

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

Since I started using Goodreads I have added every book I have read!

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

✔️

Yup, I borrowed Name of the Wind from Jordan and never gave it back.  He is the only person I have done this to.

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book

I am not overly protective of my books and I would love it if I had a friend I could lend books to, but most of my friends aren’t readers.

Broke the spine of someone else’s book

No, only because I don’t really have anyone that I borrow books from (except from the one random book I never returned to Jordan!)

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

✔️

Yes! This is why I don’t bother taking off book jackets anymore, they get just as damaged (if not more) when I leave them off of the book

Sat on a book accidentally

✔️

In case you haven’t noticed I am not that particular about the condition of my books, so this has happened more than once.

My Final Score: Nice: 9.5, Naughty: 10.5

I am almost exactly half and half, leaning just a bit toward the naughty side.  I am honestly surprised I didn’t have way more “Naughty” answers!


I Tag:

As always, don’t feel obligated to participate! But, if you do, let me know so I can check out your answers!

    1. I haven’t counted recently but I probably have about 15 copies? And my Netgalley secrets is that I only read the “Read Now” books so I am ready to read them when I request them so I don’t get a backlog of any sort. Also a lot of the ones I have read were Graphic Novels or Children’s books so they were quick reads and quick reviews

  1. So many times I was going, “Same!” I have received so many ARCs and while I am around 80% reviewed there is about twenty or so I haven’t. Some of them weren’t my fault because I checked like a day later and they archived them so I couldn’t download the books. Most of them are my fault though. I have been way more selective with the books I ask for.
    I never miss my Goodreads goal because I always change it to being lower about two months before if I think I won’t make it.
    I have about two books my aunt gave me who knows how long ago and I am afraid of giving them back. Some books I don’t know where they came from…

    1. That really sucks!! They should give you a decent amount of time before they archive it!!! I don’t miss my Goodreads goal because I read a bunch of my Niece’s picture books, so thats basically the same as changing the goal 😂😂

  2. I cannot get over the fact that you are a p&p collector, too! Do you also collect p&p retellings/ mockeries, or is that just me? I think I own something like 50 different versions now… it’s a serious issue that I don’t honestly have a problem with!

    1. I collect retellings for sure! I don’t know if any of the ones I have would count as mockeries? Unless by mockeries you mean “copies” and not “books mocking P&P”? I have Pride and Prejudice the wild and Wanton edition where they turned it into a steamy romance novel 😂 It was awesome! I only have about 25 P&P books/retellings (it looks like more in my blog header picture but that is because there are other Jane Austen books in it) but I would love to get into the 50s!! I am working my way there 😀

  3. Hahaha there’s something going on with NG. I have 100% even though I have one book not reviewed, so soon I will be above 100%. I don’t have the ability to skim read either. I just end up not grasping any of the info and then having to go back and read the page again, which wastes even more time lol.

    1. Thats good that it is a universal issue and not just something with my account! Tho I kind of hope they don’t fix it 😂 I like being at 110% 😂 Thats exactly what happens to me! I loose too much when I attempt it that I don’t even bother anymore!

  4. Whoa, 110% on Netgalley! That’s amazing! My percentage is sadly only 55%. Lol! That’s awesome that you only had a handful of naughty habits though! I also read while I’m supposed to be doing other things as well, and have sat on my books a few times by accident. Hahaha. ❤

    1. Haha I have no idea how that happened! It should only be 100% … but don’t feel bad about the 55% most of mine are kids books and the few that aren’t were “read now” books so I was ready to start them when I requested them, so there was no risk of losing interest later!
