Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Jenniely blogmas bookish naughty or nice tag

The wonderful Jennie over at Jenniely tagged me in her Bookish Naughty or Nice tag, so what with it being December and all I thought I had to take part! Here we go:

Received an ARC and not reviewed it  
If it is a physcial ARC I have reviewed them all, but I definitely still have some galleys on Netgalley to review, but galleys and ARCs are different in my mind. Well that's my story anyway....

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

84%. Oh yea!

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

Nope! I only really use Goodreads for tracking and rating what I've read, I never really post on there.

Folded down the page of a book ✔
100% guilty of this. I'm definitely a dog ear kind of reader. I sometimes go through phases of thinking oh I will buy pretty bookmarks and use them, but I never do....

Accidentally spilled on a book
Nope, which is totally surprising because we all know I like a glass of wine with my books!

DNF a book this year 
I started on Hunting Prince Dracula at the start of the year. I really enjoyed Stalking Jack the Ripper so thought this would be as good but sadly I couldn't get on with it!

Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it ✔
Oh come on, who hasn't done this?! As a book collector too I have a few editions of Harry Potter for display. No shame.

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

For sure. 

Skim read a book

Nope, although sometimes I will skim read a paragraph if it's super tense, it's like my brain is trying to reach the next part quicker.

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

I have hit my goodreads goal for the year. I like to aim for one book a week but I don't think I will be setting a goal next year, I've just found it definitely affects what I chose to read as I try and cram in shorter books to reach my goal.

Borrowed a book and not returned it

My friends are pretty awesome and we kind of work on the assumption that if we give each other a book to read, we don't expect it back.

Broke a book buying ban ✔

Ahahah yes. Just look at my many hauls from this year as proof of my failures.

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

Yes for sure! Writing reviews is hard then I tell myself I need a day to digest what I've read and then a day turns into a month and so on and so forth. 

Wrote in a book you were reading

No, I'm not a monster! Just kidding about the monster part. But no, writing in books is not for me.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

If it's not on goodreads does it even exist? But yea, as I mentioned I get a bit obsessed with that reading challenge goal so always log.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

Similar answer to above. If it was a special book I would definitely give it back though!

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book


Broke the spine of someone else’s book

No, they either turn up with the spine broken or I know I don't need to return it. But ouch to those who have the spines broken on books.

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

Nope! So weirdly I didn't know people removed the jacket to proect books. I am a terrible reader though and will use the front or back flap to mark my place in the book. 

Sat on a book accidentally

No thank goodness because that sounds painful!

Final Score: 6/10 I am such a goody goody!

Thanks again for tagging me Jennie, this was super fun to do! And now time for my tags, I choose you:



  1. Ha, I've never accidentally spilled on a book. I do hate that. My kids do it all the time though.

    Haha I've definitely dodged people asking to borrow books because I know they can't be trusted to return them!

  3. Oh gosh there are some funny ones here! I'm also guilty of folding down the corners of pages - bookmarks just fall out (that's my excuse anyway!) :)

  4. I am the worst for folding the corners on pages. Too lazy to find a real bookmark! x

  5. I never fold down pages as I am really precious about my books. But I've certainly bought nice looking ones with no intention of reading them x

  6. I turn down the corners all the time in books

  7. I love books and tend to take so much care of them, lol. But I am guilty of not reviewing some books after promising a full review on Goodreads.

  8. I envy your rating - I cannot seem to rise above 43% at netgallery - I think I have a slight hoarding problem...

  9. I am totally guilty of skim reading and then having to go back and read it properly LOL

  10. This sounds like a fun tag. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I’m definitelt guilt of buying books that look good but I have no intention of reading! X

  12. This was a great tag. I too have a complete box set of Harry Potter, still in its plastic wrapping because it is pretty and I don't want dust near the books or box. (I already have well read copies, e-book copies and audible copies. I keep meaning to get my NetGalley rating to over 95% but it's currently at 88% because I love books and keep getting more.

  13. Ooh you have more than I ever did.

  14. I have lots of arcs and not reviewed them. At the end of each year I go through those books that have been waiting 12 months for a review and then remove them - only ecopies. Physical copies I have to review as I feel awful for not doing them.

  15. You are a goody two shoes. I will definitely be on the naughty list this year!
