I can’t wait to answer these questions!!

Questions:

1.) Received an ARC and not reviewed it   ✔️
I cannot tell a lie, I’ve been a bit naughty with this one. My to be read list is a wee bit long but I promise that I will definitely do the review.

2.) Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley    ❌
I’m a newbie to the book reviewing game so I actually don’t use Netgallery and only found out about it with the tag…. eeek!!

3.) Rated a book on GoodReads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)  ❌
Nope!!! I don’t review all of my Goodreads books on my blog so I don’t think I’ve ever made that promise.

4.) Folded down the page of a book  ❌
Blasphemy!!! Sacrilege! I literally cannot stand seeing dog ears! Get a bookmark people or use a sheet of paper. I think I would probably cringe and my body would stall out if I tried to do this!

5.) Accidentally spilled on a book  ✔️
I’m a bit clumsy so I’m pretty sure I’ve water, juice, coffee, tea or something on a book before. OOPS!!!!

6.) DNF a book this year ✔️
Yep!! There are just some books I thought would be interesting but I could not finish! The story just wasn’t there. It’s a book for somebody but not for me.

7.) Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it ✔️❌
Yes and no…. Those Bookbub deals are so amazing sometimes that I can’t pass up the deal. I purchase these books with some intention of reading it but know within myself that they aren’t priority books and I may not ever get to them.

8.) Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) ✔️
Most DEFINITELY! YES!! I’m always game to escape via a good book! I say I need more time for everything else blah blah blah but really if it comes down to it reading wins!!!

9.) Skim read a book ❌
Nah I don’t think so. I either read it or nah.

10.) Completely missed your GoodReads goal  ✔️
I’m happy to say that this year I made my GoodReads goal!! Woot! Woot! But last year……… chile I missed it completely!

11.) Borrowed a book and not returned it ✔️
Yes but… in my defense I tried to but the person was like oh you can keep it! So technically it was a gift.

12.) Broke a book buying ban ✔️
Umm YESS!!! When I see a great book deal, especially on a book I’ve been eyeing for a while, I’m going to buy the book. Truth be told it’s really hard to stick to a book buying ban when there are soooooooo many amazing books out there!

13.) Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about ✔️
Yeah… I have. I don’t completely forget what the book is about but I may forget some details I thought were important so I end up having to either reread the book or get the audiobook and then write the review.

14.) Wrote in a book you were reading ❌
No I only highlight certain things and then make notes in my notebook. Wait does highlighting count? Hmmm…..

15.) Finished a book and not added it to your GoodReads ❌✔️
Kinda. I may not add it immediately but sometimes it shows up as a recommendation and I’m like heeeey I read that book and then add it to my GoodReads.


9 Checks!!! Aye yi yi! I think I’ve hopped onto the Naughty list with this one. Eek! It’s a good thing I did this after I got my presents because Santa might have turned around and headed back to the North Pole had he seen this. Lol! This has been pretty fun actually! Hopefully next year I can be on the Nice list.

How about you? How’d you do?! Are you on the Naughty or Nice List?!?! Let me know in the comments below!!!
