Hello again my bookish friends! I saw this book tag from Kris at Bostonbookreader and thought — it’s short and looks fun, so why not do it. Not like I don’t have a ton of reading to do, or reviews to finish… Anway, let’s get to it!
- Credit the person who tagged you and link their post
- Tag the original creator and their post
- Tick the ones you’ve done (BOLDED)
- Cross the ones you haven’t (ITALICIZED)
- Tag more bloggers
1.) Received an ARC and not reviewed it. — I may be extremely behind, but I always review ARCs when I receive them for that purpose. The ones I get from giveaways or book festivals … I may or may not review them, but I’ll definitely and eventually read them.
2.) Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley. — And I just requested and got approved for more… I’m now down to 47%.
3.) Rated a book on GoodReads and promised a full review was to come on your blog. Since I started my blog May 2017.. I would have to say no. I’ve been really good at adding my reviews even if it’s really late
4.) Folded down the page of a book — NEVER!
5.) Accidentally spilled on a book. — Also, NEVER. I don’t put my drinks any where near my books for this reason.
6.) DNF a book this year — So far this year, NOPE.
7.) Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it? Of course! I love pretty book covers so I probably have a few of these.
8.) Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) All the time!
9.) Skim read a book — Not the whole book, but I have skim read a chapter or two… then I ended up going back and rereading haha.
10.) Completely missed your GoodReads goal Guilty! I always start with a big goal and about half way through the year when I’m a bit behind, I lower it down. Last year, I had originally planned on reading 100 and then changed it to 80. Just so much other stuff happened that I didn’t have enough reading time.
11.) Borrowed a book and not returned it. Does it count if I didn’t want to borrow it, but my friend wanted me to read it?!? Cause she lent me her book in high school and I told her I would read it eventually… Well we went off to college, started adulting, and I still have not read that book. I don’t even know where it is.
12.) Broke a book buying ban All THE TIME!!! I don’t even know why I torture myself. It never works haha.
13.) Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about — Maybe a few weeks and even a month, but not forever. I have a basic draft and some notes on what I want in my review and then I edit until I like the way it sounds.
14.) Wrote in a book you were reading — Yes.. but not since high school. Part of my homework for English class was to analyze and annotate the books we were reading. It was actually fun.
15.) Finished a book and not added it to your GoodReads — I may forget for a few days or so, but I eventually add them.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!!!
