Bookish Naughty List | Blogmas 2018 Day 3

I was poking around in the bookblogger spaces trying to figure out posts to do for blogmas and I came across this post by Jenn on Jenniely and I HAD to do it! 25

In this cute idea we, as book bloggers, test ourselves to see if we’ll be on Santa’s naughty list for certain ‘naughty’ bookworm behaviors. I recommend this to all book bloggers because it’s so much fun!

Here we go!

  • Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✔️

Okay, so here’s the thing. I received a special ARC request by email a few months ago, actually. But the book was so bad I couldn’t get through the first 20 pages. This was my only DNF this year (and I might still do a post on it so let me know if you want to see that.)

  • Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley ✔️

So, I just discovered NetGalley this year… I’m working on figuring out how many ARCs I can handle at a time…

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

I did this with Toil and Trouble which was supposed to go up right before I took my blog break. I feel really bad, because I really liked the book and I’m still probably going to do a full review on it!

  • Folded down the page of a book ✔️

Hi, I’m a monster (a monster who couldn’t find her bookmarks while moving.) #sorrynotsorry

  • Accidentally spilled on a book

I have not done this! I get really nervous with any liquids when I’m reading to be honest.

  • DNF a book this year ✔️

See my first answer. Only DNF this year.

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

I’ve never done this and don’t understand people who do…

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

I read all the time while I’m supposed to be doing other things because I’m ALWAYS supposed to be doing other things…

  • Skim read a book

I don’t normally do this. If I get to the point where I’m skim reading I usually just chalk it up to a DNF.

  • Completely missed your Goodreads goal ✔️

I think this is mostly because I forget to add physical books to my Goodreads.

  • Borrowed a book and not returned it

I’ve never done this I don’t think.

  • Broke a book buying ban

My book buying ban is being unemployed ?

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

I did this with my As Old as Time review because it was right after my surgery.

  • Wrote in a book you were reading ✔️

I got into the habit of annotating in school. Now I mostly use sticky notes, but some more educational books I do annotate directly in.

giphy (3)

  • Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads ✔️

I do this a lot because I read physical books mostly and always forget to update my Goodreads.

Guess I’m really not getting new books from Santa this year! Are you on the book Naughty or Nice List? Tell me in the comments or tag me in your own posts on Twitter (don’t forget to tag Jenn, too!) Clean copy below!

Haha at least I’m not the only one who’s on a book buying ban because I literally haven’t got a job and no money ? genuinely the only time I’m not buying books!
Thanks for doing the tag ?

Yeah, lol The recent college grad job market is not the best place to find oneself! Although, I just moved in with my girlfriend and gained her book collection so I’m not bookless lol
I loved doing the tag it was such a cute idea and so much fun! Thank you for coming up with it!
