Happy holiday season, fellow bloggers
Thank you to Isabelle for tagging me.
This year, have you …
Received an ARC and not reviewed it?
100% Yes. I did not do well with keeping up with my ARCs this year. Just so much happened and I slumped a lot. 2019 is my goal to catch up.
Had less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley?
I don’t think I have ever had over 60%. O.o Not good I know. But I just joined this year in Feb so I’ll give myself a break. Next year I’m getting that 80% badge!!
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)?
No. I’m new to blogging and still figuring how many reviews I should post and stuff. Mostly I’m posting ARC books and as we now know I didn’t do well with ARCs this year.
Folded down the page of a book?
This actually made me shudder.
Now to be fair I used to do this a lot. But now it’s like dunking a book in the bath. (Which I have also done but not on purpose!) It just ruins it for me.
Accidentally spilled on a book?
Not really spilled but splashed? Definitely. I read in the tub and sometimes get water droplets on the book. Always upsets me. But doesn’t stop me from reading in the bath. lol.
DNF’d a book this year?
I can’t really DNF. I hate doing it. I just put a book down for another time and re-read it if it’s been too long to remember it.
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it?
I would never buy a book and not read it intentionally. I would end up not reading it because I just have too many. 😛
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)?
I have a very boring life so no.
Skim read a book?
I am really trying to break this habit of mine. But I just don’t like a lot of worldbuilding. Give me action! Give me steamy! I don’t want to know how many bricks a wall has! 😦
Completely missed your Goodreads Goal?
Yes. I actually don’t remember what my original goal was. I think it was 365. I’m at 209. Not good. But again I had a bad year so I’m cutting myself a break.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library?
I don’t get physical books from the library anymore. Just ebooks. For this reason specifically lol.
Broken a book buying ban?
Yes and No. I don’t really ban myself. My budget does. 😛
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about?
Yup. Done this a lot. That’s when I kind of bullshit or skim a book. I re-read a lot so usually skimming works quite well.
Written in a book you were reading?
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads?
Once in a while but usually I don’t add it because Goodreads doesn’t have it.
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend?
I don’t have IRL friends to borrow a book from.
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book?
Again no friends to dodge.
Broken the spine of someone else’s book?
Just going to put a sad face here.
Taken the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged?
I use to take my jackets off a lot. But now I don’t so they don’t get damaged as much. lol.
Sat on a book accidentally?
Uh no. How do you sit on a book accidentally? O.o
8 of 20? Is that good or bad? lol
