Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag : Blogmas 2018

 I'm not usually a big fan of book tags, mainly because I can never find the time to answer questions, search for books and post but I  recently saw this tag on Alliee Reads and thought it was a cute way to get to know a little more about each other.
The originated of this tag is Jenn so pop over to her blog and see if she is naughty or nice.

So let's get started...
 

Rules
  • Tag & link the person who tagged you
  • Tag and link me/this post (if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers!) Jenn
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
  • Tag another 10 people!
If you’ve not been tagged, go ahead and do it anyway!

Here’s the list for you to copy and do yourself!

1.Received an ARC and not reviewed it  
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
I have so many ARC waiting patiently on my shelf I feel guilty every time I walk past them.
 
2.Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
My feedback is surprisingly at 80%. I went crazy for a while on Netgalley and requested loads of titles but I'm committed to getting through them all in 2019.
 
3.Rated a book on goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
Always post promised reviews within a week or two of reading and rating.
 
4.Folded down the page of a book
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
Nooooo!!! Never!!!!

5.Accidentally spilled on a book
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
Maybe the occasional tea or coffee splatter but not an actual spill unless it's my tears spilling over my favourite character having their heart broken or, god forbid, dying.

6.DNF a book this year
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
 I can't bring myself to DNF a book even if it's terrible. I'm always hopeful if I read on it will improve.

7.Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿ 
Yes! Yes! Yes! I love pretty covers and can't resist them.

8.Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿  
100% of the time whilst I am reading I should be doing something else.

9.Skim read a book
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
I can't skim read. Firstly I wouldn't want to miss something crucial and secondly the author took a long time to write the book, so read whole book! 

10.Completely missed your Goodreads goal
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿ 
I have a little trick with my Goodreads goal and it's to keep the goal low and then you never miss attaining your goal. And it's not cheating! Is it?

11.Borrowed a book from the Library and not returned it
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿  
I'm not much of a Library user as I like to keep the books and not have a deadline to read them (thus my answer to Question 1) 


12.Broke a book buying ban
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿   
Haha! What's a book buying ban?

13.Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿    
Only occasionally. I try to write reviews when they are fresh in my mind but sometimes that next read is beckoning and the review gets pushed aside.

14.Wrote in a book you were reading
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿   
I never write in the books but I do use sticky notes if a sentence stands out that I want to remember later.

15.Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿   
Goodreads is the only way I keep track of what I have read so all books are added as soon as I finish them

16.Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿    
If I borrow a book I will tell them that they may not get it back for a while but I will always return it....eventually.

17.Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿
My books will only be lent out to close friends and family. That is unless I'm happy to never have it returned.

18.Broke the spine of someone else’s book
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿     
Never! I always take great care when borrowing someone else's book 

19.Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
✿.。.:* ☆:**:. π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž .:**:.☆*.:。.✿ 
Taken the jacket off a book and then can't remember the safe place I put it so it wouldn't get damaged.

20.Sat on a book accidentally
 ✿.。.:* ☆:**:. 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒 .:**:.☆*.:。.✿      
Haha! No, I have books everywhere but I'm pretty sure I've never sat on one.

8/20 π’©π’Άπ“Šπ‘”π’½π“‰π“Ž  
12/20 𝒩𝒾𝒸𝑒
I'm happy to see I'm a little more Nice than Naughty when it comes to my bookish ways.

    1. Reading around the blogs I think most people were guilty of those. Hmmm maybe an idea there for my New Year’s resolution.
