The Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Today, I’m doing The Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag. This sounds like so much fun!! Dini @ Dini Panda Reads tagged me, and I’m eager to see if I’m more naughty or nice. This tag was originally created by Jenniely.

The Rules

  • Tag and link the person who tagged you (nobody did, lol)
  • Link back to the creator (Jenniely)
  • Tick or cross off the ones you’ve done!
  • Tag 10 people (if you want)

 Received an ARC and Not Reviewed It 

I’ve done this three times, and all three times I told the authors why I wasn’t reviewing them. Sometimes, I read an ARC and don’t post the review on my blog, but I always post on Goodreads.

Have a less than 60% rating on NetGalley

I think the lowest I’ve ever been is 85%. I try to stay above 90 if I can. Right now, I’m at 95%. 🙂 If I go lower than 85, I stress myself out.

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

Ugh, I have done this! Sorry! (not sorry)

 Folded down the page of a book

I do this all the time. I mean, generally I use a bookmark or receipt or something else to mark where I left off, but if nothing’s around, I’ll totally fold the page.

Accidentally spilled on a book

I don’t think I’ve ever done this. Maybe when I was younger? My kids have accidentally spilled on my books though. Grrr.

DNF a book this year

I DNFed a few books this year. I don’t feel as guilty about doing this any more. If it’s not working for me, then I move on.

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

I always intend to read the books I buy. lol Do I have a ton of books I’ve bought and still haven’t read? Yup. But I’ve never bought a book because it’s pretty if I didn’t plan on reading it.

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

All the time. lol

I did this today!

Skim read a book

I have done this, though not often. Usually, it was when I had to teach something that I’d already read many times. But I have done this with pleasure reads too.

Completely missed your Goodreads goal 

I’ve met my Goodreads goals since I joined Goodreads., though I change the goal every year.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library 

I always return my books. I’m a total rule follower. lol Once when I was a kid, the librarian said I hadn’t returned a book and told me I had to pay to replace it. I knew I returned it, so I went to the shelves and searched for it. I found it! lol

Broke a book buying ban 

Ok, the only reason I’ve never broke a book buying ban is because I very, very rarely put myself on a book buying ban.

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

Oh mu gosh, I feel so called out! lol I definitely do this!! Sometimes I get on a reading binge, and then I have like 8 to 10 books to review. By then, I’ve forgotten some things and have to go back and refresh my memory. That why I usually annotate when I read.

Wrote in a book you were reading

All the time! lol Though I don’t think this is a bad thing. I did this all through college, when I taught, and I still do it. I highlight my favorite quotes, put notes and questions in the margins, comment on themes, characters, plot, symbols, or anything else that strikes me while reading.

 Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I don’t think so. I’m pretty consistent about adding books to Goodreads.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

I don’t often borrow books from friends, but when I do, Ii make note of it so I can return it to the right person.

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book 

I love lending books to people! If they show interest, I always share.

Broke the spine of someone else’s book

No. I’m way more careful with other peoples books than I am with my own. I’ve definitely broken the spines of many of my books.

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

I do generally take the jacket off when reading to protect it. However, I’ve never made it more damaged by doing that.

Sat on a book accidentally 

Yup. I definitely have done this more than once. lol I bring a book with me almost everywhere I go, and I have books in almost every room of my house. I’ve left books on my couch or bed and then forgot and accidentally sat on them.


Naughty – 9

Nice – 11
