1.) Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✓
Most of my TBR is made up of ARCs that are awaiting my fleeting attention, I feel so guilty about that though
2.) Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley ✓
Hahahaha, I don’t even want to look. Knowing me it’s less than 40%
3.) Rated a book on GoodReads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) ❌
I know myself and so, I never promise reviews. I always try to do a little review the moment I mark the book as finished so that, when it comes the time to do a full-length review I can remember my feelings better.
4.) Folded down the page of a book ❌
I don’t judge anyone who does this but I just really love to see my books as pristine as possible
5.) Accidentally spilled on a book ✓
Nothing too bad, mind you. More than once I may have dropped some water while I was reading and once a coffee (the smell that left on the book was pretty nice though)
6.) DNF a book this year ✓
Yeah, I’m not gonna name it because it wasn’t even a bad book, it’s just that the writing style and the pacing weren’t for me.
7.) Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it ❌
Listen, I’ve bought a lot of books just because they were pretty but always meaning to read them later.
8.) Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) ✓✓✓
Who hasn’t?? Like, every activity becomes 10000 times more enticing when you are meant to be doing something else.
9.) Skim read a book ✓
Mostly for school, I had a lot of assigned reading and most of it wasn’t much fun so I just skimmed over the entire book. Now that I choose what to read I have the power to put down a book if I’m not really invested in it.
10.) Completely missed your GoodReads goal ✓
Before I joined the reading community online I would completely forget GR was even a thing and so set a goal and then didn’t upload anything for the rest of the year
11.) Borrowed a book and not returned it ❌
Never, and not because I’m super organized or anything like that, it’s just that I’d hate to lend a book and not having it back so I don’t do that to others either.
12.) Broke a book buying ban ❌
This is another instance of I know myself too well, I just don’t go into book buying bans because I would totally fail them.
13.) Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about ✓
**Looks at my review for Shadow and Bone**
14.) Wrote in a book you were reading ❌
-See number 4-
15.) Finished a book and not added it to your GoodReads ❌
Nah, I’m too in need of validation for this. Since I started reading more often I have the need to log everything on.
I think I’m… fine? Like, well in the middle a bit towards naughty but not enough. I’m nighty, nauce?
