Hello! Today, I have another Christmas Book Tag for you. I was actually struggling to come up with today’s post until I stumbled upon the Naughty or Nice Book Tag on Aimee’s Ramblings. So I am so grateful for finding this one, or Blogmas may have been over on day 8 for me!
- Tag & link the person who tagged you
- Tag and link creator of the post (if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers!)
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
Received an ARC and Not Reviewed it
Regretfully, yes. I have received some incredible ARCs this year and unfortunately there are some that I haven’t gotten to. I am hoping to read them, but at a later date! Similarly to Sixteen Scandals by Sophie Jordan – I received the ARC a year ago, and only last month did I get around to reading it and posting my review. So, I will get to them eventually!
Have Less than 60% Feedback Rating on Netgalley
Yes… unfortunately my Netgalley percentage is sitting at an awful 43%. I am hoping to improve on this in 2022!
Rated a Book on Goodreads and Promised a Full Review Was to Come and it Never Did
I don’t think so! I don’t really use Goodreads for reviews anymore, though I need to definitely get better at posting my reviews onto Goodreads as well as on my blog! I also need to get better at posting them on Instagram too. Another goal for 2022.
Folded Down the Page of a Book
Absolutely not. No, no, no. I spoken so many times about how this is one of my bookish pet peeves!
Accidentally Spilled on a Book
I don’t think so! I feel like I would remember if I had to be honest, so no. I am so careful with my drinks around my books. I am so scared of accidentally spilling drinks on my books!
DNF a Book This Year
I have started many books this year and then put them down. However, I don’t think any have been a DNF – more of a ‘I’ll return to you later’ kind of books. I can’t think of one that I want to never pick up again.
Bought a Book Purely Because it was Pretty with no Intention of Reading it
I have every intention of reading it, but my purchase of Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim was purely because of the stunning cover!
Read Whilst you Were Meant to be Doing Something Else
Likely always! I feel like I am always meant to be doing something when I am reading. Most likely writing up reviews…
Skim Read a Book
This year I haven’t been reading many books in a physical format (mainly audiobooks) but the last book I did skim read was The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara and that was because I was a bit behind and had to rush the book in order to get the review out on time.
Completely Missed Your Goodreads Goal
The year is not over! I am currently at 66/75. I am really hoping that I can get to my goal by the end of the year!
Borrowed a Book and Not Returned it to the Library
I have been terrible at visiting the library in recent years, so I haven’t taken one out to not return!
Broke a Book Buying Ban
I haven’t really restricted myself this year, although my bank account is screaming out for me to.
Started a Review, Left it for Ages then Forgot What the Book was About
Yes, yes and yes! I have actually had to leave reviews altogether because so much time had passed. It is also partly why my Discussion Posts on the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas did not continue, because I pushed through the series at the end too quickly and then the books blended together, I put them off for too long and they just ended up staying in the drafts!
Wrote in a Book you Were Reading
Absolutely not!! I could never write in a book.
Finished a Book and Not Added it to Your Goodreads
No. I feel like I am very on top of my Goodreads!
Borrowed a Book and Not Returned it to a Friend
My colleague did let me borrow a couple of books in the summer that I still haven’t returned!
Dodged Someone Asking if they Can Borrow a Book
I feel like my friends know how protective of my books I am and so they never ask to borrow them. Plus, they aren’t the biggest readers!
Broke the Spine of Someone Else’s Book
Took the Jacket off a Book to Protect it and Ended Up Making it More Damaged
I always take the jacket off of my books when reading them, but I don’t think any of them have become damaged because of it! Thankfully.
Sat on a Book Accidentally
No – how do you do this one?
I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you do the tag, please tag me so that I can see what you put! This was a really fun tag, so I am so glad that I stumbled across this one!
I think that leaves me as seven that I have done? Maybe. I think that means I am on the Nice list! Or maybe I just want to be on the nice list – who knows?!
