Woo! Christmas is coming up fast! What better time to post a holiday-themed tag where we’re judged for our naughty and nice reading/book habits?? 😀 Big thanks to the awesome Random Melon Reads for tagging me for the “Naughty or Nice Tag”. There was no way I could miss out on such festive fun so let’s get to it shall we??
Received an ARC and not reviewed it
I’ve never done the ARC thing, actually, so I’m as innocent as can be on this one. Pure as the driven snow.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
Never used Netgalley. Apparently I am a lame ass nerd. 😛
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
Nahhh, I don’t think so. I’m lazy and don’t usually put actual reviews on there anyway. Why bother promising something I have no intention of doing? Now, on my blog, MAYBE.
Folded down the page of a book
Do I LOOK like some sort of monster to you?? My mama raised me better than this!
Accidentally spilled on a book
I don’t believe I have. The thought of it is enough to make me cringe. I’m one of those people who refuse to read in the bathtub because I’m too afraid of the possible water damage for my sweet little literary babies. ❤
DNF a book this year
Pffffft. I am the QUEEN of DNF Reads. It’s sad, but true.
Bought a book because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Hmmm . . . I wouldn’t say “with no intention of reading it”. I’m shallow enough to be sold on a book by the cover alone, but I’m still planning on reading it at some point if I buy it.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else
Oh, yes. Far too often. It’s one of the best tools I have in my utility belt of procrastination.
Skim read a book
Not the whole thing, but yeah, I’ve skimmed parts in books before if I had a deadline I was behind on or if I was just not feeling it at the time.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
Not yet! 😀
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library
Eek! I have. Not in a VERY long time, mind you, but I am guilty of this one. It was a book on mythological beasties and I still own it to this day. I paid for it, so the library and I are squared away, but yeahhhhh . . .
Broke a book buying ban
Yeah, probably. I don’t think I usually ban myself from buying books, more so ban myself from spending money on things I don’t particularly need. I still blow that, too, though.
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
Yup! I also do this with a lot of my DNF books. I’ll start them, sit them aside for way too long, and then realize I don’t remember enough of what I did read and then have to start all over. My reading style is chaotic to say the least, but so are a lot of other aspects of my life so at least I’m consistent. 😉
Wrote in a book you were reading
Only books I’m using as a studying tool. I highlight, underline, and scribble notes in those bad boys. I still won’t dogear the pages though so I’m not a total lost cause. 😛
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
Yes. I usually don’t realize I’ve done it until wayyyy later and then I still don’t end up adding it as read for some reason. I don’t think I’m a very good GR user. D:
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
No, I don’t believe so. Borrowed for a very long time? Yes. Though I like to think I’ve always returned the books I’ve borrowed eventually. In all fairness I don’t mind people hanging on to my books for a long time either. As long as I know they can be trusted to return the books in one piece I don’t care how long they hang onto it.
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
I don’t think so.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
Holy shit, I would feel absolutely terrible. I’d be buying them a new book pronto and would expect nothing less than them to beat me with the damaged copy.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ending up making it even more damaged
Eh. I definitely liberated many of my books from their dust jackets but I don’t think I messed them up after they started free-balling it.
Sat on a book accidentally
Um, I don’t believe so? Maybe? I don’t know, not that I recall, so I’m going to go with NO.
FINAL SCORE – Naughty=8. Nice=12.
Aww, it was a close one, but I managed to squeak by and make the “Nice List”. Does this mean I get more books from Santa?? 😀 I certainly hope so!
Usually I’m far too lazy to tag people, but since it’s the holiday season, let’s do this!
Aaaaand anyone else who thinks this looks fun, consider yourself officially tagged!
In other news: I know I’m still way behind catching up on everyone’s blogs/comments right now, and for that I’m sorry! ❤ I’m currently getting over being sick and with Christmas coming up and work craziness I’ve been so strapped for time. I’m hoping things will calm down once the holidays are done, but for now I’ll do the best I can to catch up and stay (somewhat) sane! 🙂 I hope you’re all having a fantastic December and that the New Year will treat you all well. ❤ ❤ ❤
