Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

The Naughty or Nice Book Tag

I originally saw this tag on Paper Fury, but I believe it was created by Jenniely.  I wasn’t tagged for it, but it looked like so much fun that I had to do it.  

Here are the rules:

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you
  • Tag and link me/this post (if you would be so kind, I love reading your answers!)
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
  • Tag another 10 people!

If you’ve not been tagged, go ahead and do it anyway!


Received an ARC and not reviewed it  

This is an interesting one.  I have received a few ARC’s from publishers and authors that asked me to review them, and I did.  But I go to a lot of conferences and I pick up a lot of ARC’s which I don’t always get to in a timely manner,  but I figure they don’t know I have them, so no harm done.  So I think I can say Nice for this one.  

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

My feedback ratio is 93% so a definite Nice for this one.  

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

I always rate the books I read, but I don’t always write reviews for them on Goodreads.  But I don’t promise to write one and then don’t do it, so Nice again!

Folded down the page of a book

Oh Gods NO!  I would never do that, Nice.

Accidentally spilled on a book

I don’t think that I ever have, but I do eat and drink when I am reading.  I guess I’m just really good at avoiding spills.  Nice 

DNF a book this year

Does it count as a DNF if I never even started it?  There were two books this year that I returned to the library unread.  I just ran out of time for one and couldn’t renew it and the other I just wasn’t in the mood for.  I’m going to count this one as a Naughty

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

I don’t think I have ever done this, so Nice.  

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

Like all the time?  I’m always reading when I should be cleaning the house, working in the yard or occasionally at work.  Naughty

Skim read a book

I haven’t ever skimmed an entire book. I occasionally will skim a section, usually when there is a particularly violent act going on such as torture or gouging out people’s eyes.  Those things give me nightmares.  I think this is a Nice.

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

I don’t keep a Goodread’s goal.  I don’t feel the need to. 

Borrowed a book and not returned it

I don’t think I have ever done this.  I sometimes return library books late, but usually it is only by a day or two.  Nice

Broke a book buying ban

I don’t ever set limits on myself when it comes to buying books.

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

This one I do all of the time.  Part of being a serial reader I guess.  Naughty

Wrote in a book you were reading

When I was in collage, so many years ago, I would always write notes in my textbooks.  But I have reformed myself and would never ever do this now, so I think that makes me Nice.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

Ok, so this is another one that gets a little tricky.  As a librarian I read a lot of books for my work.  I don’t put all of those on my Goodreads list.  My yearly number would probably be in the thousands, what with all the picture books and easy chapter books that take about 20 minutes to read, if I did.  I only list those that I read for pleasure or that I will be writing reviews for.  I think I am pretty good about remembering to list those, so I am going to say Nice.

So lets add these all up and see how I did.  There were 15 total and there were two that I didn’t give a naughty or nice tag to.  So out of 13 I had 10 Nice and 3 Naughty.  I hope Santa brings me a nice present for that this year.  

As per usual I won’t tag anyone, but feel free to do this tag if you want.  Link back to me and to Jenniely so that we can see your answers.

Are you Naughty or Nice?
