The Bookish Naughty List Tag

83c193a6-7b15-40cd-84a0-008f3401c844

I saw this tag on Cleo’s blog. It’s a tag that interested me and I loved reading her answers so I thought I’d give it a whirl today. The tag was originally created by A Page of Jenniely. 

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it?

I have. Oops. Sometimes books come through the post that I haven’t requested and have no interest in reading. I’m very good at reading ARCs I’ve requested. So please let me off?

2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley?

I haven’t! Since catching up one year, I now have 98% on NetGalley. It makes me shudder a little bit to think of it too low.

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

No. I am not very good at using Goodreads if I’m honest. I tend to review here first and then remember Goodreads a few months later…

4. Folded down the page of a book?

Yes! When I was younger. Now I can’t do it to my babies.

5. Skim read a book?

Not an entire book, but parts of some. I confess.

6. DNF a book this year?

Yes. I have. It’ll come up on my feature The Ones That Got Away because I like to give a book a fair chance in case someone else would really like it.

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

No. I always intend to read the book. I’m guided by beauty sometimes though.

8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else?

Yes. As a teacher, my to do list is pretty extensive, but I think if I didn’t have a balance in my life then I’d be forever working.

9. Accidentally spilled on a book

Yes. It makes me sad inside. I dropped a book in the bath before… *shudder*

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal?

I always set it to something I know will be achievable. I don’t like failing!

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it?

Yes! Sorry…

12. Broke a book buying ban?

I have. I’m getting better though at sticking to self-imposed bans.

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

Not really. I quite often review a book the day or so after finishing it or the same day if possible (during my holiday time!) I like to write a review until the end so I don’t forget about it.

14. Wrote in a book you were reading?

Yes. As part of The Transatlantic Book Project I took part in last year, we annotated in the books!

15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads?

I have! It tends to be children’s books for work that I don’t add to my Goodreads!

Like Cleo, I’m not going to tag any specific bloggers, but feel free to join in and leave a link to your post! 🙂

  1. I didn’t do this post but it was interesting to read your answers. Sadly I have done many of these. I have forgotten a book and have had to go back to the book skim through it and even read a chapter or two to remember, the ending mostly – I find a lot of the book comes back to me when I do that. Oh, I’ve spilled, broken my ban and have a very poor rating on Netgalley (from my old blog 6 years ago). I am slowly working on getting the score increased. I use goodreads A LOT even when I stopped blogging tho. I love it there.

    Great post!
