Received an ARC and not reviewed it

Naughty–  Oh please, of course! Guys, I don’t have time to read bad books, do you? No, no you don’t. You have a life, other crap you have to do. No one has time to read bad books. 

-Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

Nice – I currently have 80% feedback rating. Woohoo! Can’t complain since I have several book sitting in pending right now. 

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

Naughty – Puh-lease. I can think of three in the last MONTH that I have finished, typed “review to come,” and then never looked back. 

-Folded down the page of a book

Nice – I could never. I checked a book out of the library not long ago that someone dog eared the crap out of and I legitimately couldn’t read it because the little fold marks drove me absolutely nuts. Who would do that?! 

-Accidentally spilled on a book

Naughty – Soup. I spilled soup on a book. It broke my heart. I have not eaten while reading since. It was a very traumatizing experience. 

-DNF a book this year

Naughty – Although I don’t truly see this as naughty. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, life is too short to read bad books. I’m not going to waste what time I have reading a book that doesn’t entertain me. 

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

Nice – I don’t make money to buy things I don’t intend to use. Sure, I have been lured in by a pretty cover but I’m not buying it if the description doesn’t sound up my alley as well. 

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

Naughty – What better procrastination is there than reading? Have laundry to put away? Read. Need to mop the floor? Read. Dinner needs made? Read. Supposed to be writing about a post apocalyptic sci-fi world? Let’s read instead!

-Skim read a book

Naughty and nice? – If I get part way into a book and I feel like a DNF might be coming, I will skim for a while before I make my decision. 

-Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Nice – I have actually not missed my goal since I started using Goodreads to track my progress. I fully expected to miss it this year as it has been a difficult year life wise but I still have exceeded 100% #Winning

-Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library

Nice – If you have done this I will hunt you down and I will end you. You will deserve it. 

-Broke a book buying ban

Nice – Only because I don’t impose book buying bans upon myself. I’m selective of what books I purchase instead of picking up from the library so if I have put the time and thought into whether or not I’m going to buy a book, I’m just going to bloody do it. 

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

Nice – If I have decided to start a review I am going to finish it. That simple. I write an entire review at a time. I’m not good at doing things piece meal. 

-Wrote in a book you were reading

Nice – I’m not a heathen. 

-Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

Naughty – Look, I read some serious smut sometimes. I’m not adding that nonsense to my Goodreads. But sometimes you just need a shirtless man in a kilt to get bitch slapped by a hot headed damsel and end up in bed together, you know?

-Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

Nice – …but on a technicality. I’ve borrowed a book from my sister and forgot to return it. That is family, not a friend. Read the fine print. 

-Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book

Nice – Why would I dodge them? I have zero problem saying no. No one should have a problem saying no. It is a great word. Say it out loud with me now. “No.” So simple. Use it more often, especially you, ladies. 

-Broke the spine of someone else’s book

Nice –  How. Dare. You. Once again, I will hunt you down, and I will end you. 

-Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

Naughty – So, the second book of the Game of Thrones series. By husband bought me the entire box set years ago. I started reading the second book ages ago. Then we were getting ready to move, I stuck the book in my bag, and have never found the dust jacket again. I have no idea where that thing ended up. Nowhere good, I’m sure. 

-Sat on a book accidentally

Naughty – Oh come on, everyone has dropped their book on the couch. forgotten about it, and then accidentally sat on it later. It is part of being a reader! 

This was a close one, guys, but according to the Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag I am 55% nice. Whew! Santa might still bring me some books this year!

If you want to do this tag, please tag yourself and link back to me! I would love to see your answer.
