The Bookish Naughty List Tag

I stumbled upon this tag on My Peacock Books here. This tag looked really fun, so I felt I should definitely do it.😋😋😋😋

It was originally created by A Page of Jenniely. Here are the rules:

Rules

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you
  • Tag and link the creator of the tag.
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done (Or just put yes or no)
  • Tag another 10 people!

1.Received an ARC and not reviewed it? Yes

Yes, I have done. I received arc for blog tour, but had to opt out of it because of some problems, the arc remained with me. After that I got caught up with other books and never had time to read it, let alone review it.

2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley? Yes

Currently, my feedback ratio is less than 60%. I am trying to improve it…😅

3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)? No

No never done it. I always post the full review, when I rate a book.

4. Folded down the page of a book? Yes

Yes, I have done it, because sometimes I don’t find a bookmark or when I feel just too lazy to get up and bring the bookmark, folding the page of the book is the only I could keep track of the page I am reading.

5. Accidentally spilled on a book? Yes

Once spilled coffee on the book I was reading.

6. DNF a book this year? No

No, not this year.

8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)? Yes

Okay, I have done this a lot…. A lot

9. Skim read a book? No

Not the whole book, but I have skim read a few pages of a book, because okay it was a mystery novel, and I was really interested to know who the killer is, but the author had to put a sex scene, which was not at all necessary for the story, so I just skimmed through these pages.

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal? Yes

Yes I failed last year’s Goodreads Reading Challenge. I did set a goal that was completely achievable, but then I took a break and didn’t read a single book for last 4 months and so I missed Goodreads’ goal.😭😭😭😭😭

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it? No

Never done it.

12. Broke a book buying ban? No

No, because I have never put a book buying ban.

13. Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about? No

Always finish writing a review if I start it.

No, I try to keep my book clean. 😂😂😂
