The Naughty or Nice Book Tag! #Suntag

The Naughty or Nice Book Tag! #Suntag

I haven’t done a book tag for ages. I saw this one on Meggy’s blog a few weeks ago. I thought this would be a good tag to do here on ChocolatePages. You can see Meggy’s brilliant post, along with some lovely ‘Suits‘ and ‘David Tennent‘ gifs with her answers Here – Meggy’s Naughty or Nice Suntag.

So, lets get right into the questions and see if I’m a naughty or nice book lover/blogger/reader. 


Received an ARC and not reviewed it?

I find it hard to believe that any bookblogers have reviewed all the arcs they have received??? I have a few from Netgalley, a few from Authors, a few from publishers….. oops! Yes, I have a few arcs that I haven’t reviewed ….. yet.

So sorry Meggy, I love your David gif so much, I stole  er I mean I borrowed it….. I know you won’t mind sharing the DT love with me and my readers….. right???


Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley?

This is one of my blogging / reading things that I am actually quite pleased with. My ratio is 75%, which is brilliant for me. The recommended ratio is 80% I think, so I’m doing well with this. 

These are my recent requests from Netgalley. I have only read and reviewed ‘The Couple‘ so far. But each book sounds amazing, so I will be getting to them very soon.

 

 


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

I don’t think so. I review on my blog first, then over the next week I transfer my reviews to Amazon and Goodreads. Definitely a nice point for this one

Folded down the page of a book?

Well, I may have done before I became an “official” bookblogger! Now I have an infinite supply of bookmarks, I don’t need to. AND…..I promise to all book sanctuaries that I will never fold down the page again! Do you believe me?

Accidentally spilled on a book?

Not spilled drinks, but maybe  probably biscuit crumbs. I don’t think they count though, so I shall go for a ‘No’ on that question.


 

DNF a book this year?

Not this year. I think that is not saying much as its only February. So can I get an extra point, if I say not last year either!!!?

Bought a book because it was pretty with no intention of reading it?

No, I don’t really understand that? Its nice that books can look pretty on your shelf, but I have to have some interest in reading it aswell.

I have 2 copies of Anne of Green Gables. I bought the second because it was such a beautiful looking book. But I will and have read them both. I wouldn’t buy only for aesthetics. 


Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else?

Yes!! Far more often than I should. Housework, getting ready to go out, talking!! What can I say though…. when a book grips you, you can’t break free.

Skim read a book?

The only time I do this, is if I’m not gripped by the story and I skim a bit to see if its worth finishing or if I should just give up. I never skim read a good book, in fact I am more likely to re read certain pages to make sure I am getting the right picture!


Completely missed your Goodreads goal?

I have met my goal in all years except last year. But I’m not bothered by it. If I’m not in the right mood to read then I won’t enjoy the books. My reading mojo dropped a bit last year, now this year it has slowly started growing again. This is largely due to all the great books I received recently. I did a post on this, you can read it HERE!

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library?

No, never. That would be stealing! I have of course been late to return books and had to pay the fine. But I will always return the books I borrow, so that others can benefit from this wonderful service too.

Broke a book buying ban?

I have never set myself a book buying ban. I told myself I wouldn’t accept anymore reviews or look at Netgalley before, at least until I was a bit more caught up with my tbr. I stuck to that until I …… didn’t 

books and tea


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

Yes, (hangs head). Often this happens when I am so excited to start my next book that I keep reading that new one and forget I have to review the last one. Most of the time, I will go back and review it though. It just takes a bit longer and a bit more thought to get it done.

Wrote in a book you were reading?

Never in books for pleasure. Probably in books for learning a long time ago. Now when I want to make notes (for review purposes), I will use little sticky notes with a few key words on to remind me of my thoughts. 

 


Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads?

Not that I can think of. I suppose there might be the odd couple that I may have forgotten about, but my answer to this is NO.

no

 


Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend?

No, that would be mean, hypocritical and if the friend is a book lover, they may not ever trust me with her books again.

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book?

Not many people ask me if they can borrow my books. I am happy to let them read the books, usually only after I have read them myself though. 

 

sharing books


Broke the spine of someone else’s book?

No, there is a book jail for that kind of crime!

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ending up making it even more damaged?

I don’t take the jackets off the books. They are there to protect the books and make the books look nice. I like my books to look nice while I read them.  


Sat on a book accidentally?

Yes, and probably more than once! Don’t worry, the books and I both survived unhurt.

I didn’t sit on this one, but the cover fitted the question, I think!


What a fun tag to do. Thank you Meggy for bringing my attention to it. 

I won’t tag anyone particular, but if you want to do this tag, I would like to read your answers, so link me into your post so I can read it please. If you won’t do the tag, you can let me know some of your answers in the comments below. Are you a naughty or nice book lover?
