Never Have I Ever…read a later book in a series before reading the first book

Yes, I’ve done this, especially in the romance genre. I’ve read books that are part of a series but can be read as a standalone. Usually, there are characters or references to earlier books, but it is still easy to follow the story.

Never Have I Ever…burned a book

Like physically burned a book? What is this, Fahrenheit 451? lol No, I haven’t.

Never Have I Ever…read a book I knew I would hate

I have read many books that I knew I would hate. I taught English in a public high school. lol One of the first books I had to teach was The Red Badge of Courage, which is not something I would typically read, and I knew I wasn’t going to enjoy it before I even opened it. Others include Candide and The Grapes of Wrath.

Never Have I Ever…wrote a fanfiction about my favorite books

I haven’t! I’ve thought about how I would like certain characters stories to continue, but I’ve never written fanfiction.

Never Have I Ever…loved a book when I was young, yet hated it when I got older

Definitely. As a young teen, I loved V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic. I read it when I was an adult and just found it disturbing. Didn’t enjoy it at all!

Never Have I Ever…dressed up as one of my favorite literary characters

I have. I have three kids and a husband who love Halloween, so we all dress up every year. One year, I dressed as Hermione Granger. Another year, I was Princess Leia. However, my favorite costume is not book related. Two years ago, my husband dressed up as Bob Ross, and I was a happy little tree. Best couple costume ever!!!

Never Have I Ever…hated a book by an author I love

Hmm. I can’t say that I do.

Never Have I Ever…gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more

I do this almost every time I go to a bookstore. lol

Never Have I Ever…read the ending of a book before reading the beginning

I have done this! When my mother became ill, we were reading the same series, but we knew she didn’t have enough time or energy to finish it. So, I read the ending and told her about it. I love the anticipation of not knowing and generally wouldn’t do this, but I love my mom more.

Never Have I Ever…read a book without the dust cover

I have. I often take the dust cover off so I don’t ruin it.

Never Have I Ever…skim read nearly half a book

Hahaha, I definitely have!

Thanks again, Millay! This was as fun as I though it would be! I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you think it sounds like fun, I would love to read your answers! Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

  1. Walking out the bookstore with more books than planned is such a mood. HAHAHA. I mean, I don’t even plan on buying anything but I always end up with two or more books. 🙂 I loved your answers.

    1. Lol – That year my 72 year old dad dressed as Neegan from The Walking Dead and my step-mother was a zombie. lol I think the adults had more fun than the kids. Hahahaha!!
