  • Received an ARC and not reviewed it  

I received 3 ARCs this year and reviewed them all….one I only got halfway through before I couldn’t do it anymore, but I still sent Netgalley a review saying why I didn’t finish it, and put it on Goodreads, so I say that counts!

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

Nope, I’ve maintained 100%! But then again, I’ve only ever been approved for like 5 ARCs so it wasn’t particularly hard. I’ve kind of given up requesting because I’m never approved for the things I really want to read, and everything I have been approved for has been……bad. And when I feel obligated to read and review things I get rebellious and don’t want to, and it makes it less fun somehow. I tried the ARC life…and it’s just not for me.

  • 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 most books I read, but I can usually tell when I don’t want to review a book, so I won’t promise one if I know I won’t!

  • Folded down the page of a book

I don’t think so! This year I put all my bookmarks into a mug next to my bed so I’ve increased my usage of them 🙂

  • Accidentally spilled on a book


  • DNF a book this year ✔

I did! But is that naughty? I never liked DNFing before, but I’ve grown more lenient this year. It’s because once I got my new job and my time became more limited, I wanted to use it enjoy what I’m reading- reading bad things feels more like a waste now that my free time is PRECIOUS.

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

No matter how pretty a book is……I’ve got to be wanting to read it in order to invest the money.

  • Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) ✔

Lol of course.

  • Skim read a book ✔

I’ve skimmed the ends of books.

  • Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Nope! I actually beat it by 56% :O I’ve read 78/50 books so far…..dare I make it to 80 before the year is up?

  • Borrowed a book and not returned it

Well I still have some that have been lent to me, but I WILL return them…eventually. So I guess not guilty, since I don’t plan on hoarding them away?

  • Broke a book buying ban

I’ve never really put an Official Ban on myself, but I think I made it about 3 months after Christmas last year without buying anything, but since I was trying to see how long I could last rather than setting boundaries, I guess I didn’t really “break” it.

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

I usually write my reviews within two or three weeks at the latest after finishing a book, so no!

  • Wrote in a book you were reading ✔


  • Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I don’t think so!! I like to keep track so I don’t usually forget.

4/15!!! I guess I made it on the nice list?? AMAZING.

Since I wasn’t tagged, I’ll let you guys decide if you’d like to do it! It’s fun! And if I don’t post for the next few days….Merry Christmas, happy holidays, have fun celebrating whatever you celebrate, or just have a great day!

  1. Omg I’m also working on this tag and I didn’t know how to answer the ‘borrowed a book and didn’t return it’ question like WHAT is the grace period for being allowed to keep the book until it’s considered hoarding??

    • LOL. I was actually referring to the books you lent me in that question, so I was like…I’ve had them for nearly 3 months which isn’t TERRIBLY LONG?? I think I’d feel more like I’m hoarding them if I forgot about returning them or was just too lazy and kept them for a year or so maybe??

      • LOL I KNOW I WAS THINKING OF YOURS TOO I was like I haven’t even READ one of these yet so it doesn’t count as hoarding right?? But omg seriously keep them as long as you want, being like ‘here are some books YOU HAVE TO READ THEM RIGHT AWAY!!! I NEED THEM BACK!!!’ takes the fun out of book lending imo.
