The Bookish Naughty ListBook Tag (2)

Hello Book Lovers! I was nominated for this tag by Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer. Inge’s blog is great with fabulous content and I love to read her reviews. so don’t forget to visit her blog. You can check out her answers to this tag Here.

The tag was originally created by A Page of Jenniely


Okay this is going to be bit boring as most of the answers are NOOOssss!!

QUESTIONS:

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it:

Nah. One I requested on Netgalley and before I could download it got archived. I was new at that time and I didn’t know I should open it in adobe reader ‘not save’ it.

2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley:

No. It’s 91% right now.

3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did): 

No. I don’t rate it if I’m not ready with review.

4. Folded down the page of a book: 

Nah. I folded pages of my textbooks in school and college time.

5. Accidentally spilled on a book: 

No. again textbooks not novels.My study materials used to be at all places so it was hard not to spill anything on it.

6. DNF a book this year:

No. I never DNF. It’s strange that I give up anything but books.

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

I have bought all books with intention of reading but couldn’t find time for them. This year it’s my goal to read them.

8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else:

I’m used to finish all the household work as soon as possible so that I can read more. whenever I attend party or get together, I finish with the pleasantries and I find a nice cozy corner and read on my phone.  (because most of the time I find them boring and never had anyone with common thoughts or interest)

9. Skim read a book:

Uhhmm, only with boring books. I want them finish as fast as I can so that i can find something uplifting. But now i read it all and choose books carefully.

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal:

Nah. I don’t intend to. I’m safe player, why would I write numbers that are impossible to achieve!

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it:

nope. I have returned all books I have borrowed.

12. Broke a book buying ban: 

That’s my husband, not me. He put a ban and then he gifts them to me so technically it’s not me. Cool, right? 😉

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

Nope. I forget things about book when it is confusing or when I couldn’t comprehend what just happened. In  that case I note it down before even I started writing review, so that I can mention it and I don’t have to put it aside for ages to think over it.

14. Wrote in a book you were reading: 

No and Yes. I wasn’t doing it before. But I have started using pencil these days. I bracket passages that are good or have good info or is confusing and note down page number on last page. They are my books why shouldn’t I make it personal?  I recently watched Ariel’s video and I loved what she said and so agree with it. Here it is- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lymm1OpFgaA

But yes I would NEVER EVER USE PEN.

15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads:

No. It’s kind of reading log for me. I definitely update ‘on what page I’m’ and update if ‘I finished reading’ a book or going to start. Sometimes I don’t immediately add ‘want to read’ books even though I already got it from author or NetGalley. Sometimes I add them in a month I’m real sure that I’m going to read them.


I TAG the following bloggers/blogs but feel free to ignore if you don’t want to do this:

  1. Oww Yesha, thank you for your kind words about me and my blog! Wonderful that you took on this tag, it was great to read your answers and let me just say you must have the best hubbie ever.. I’m sure not many of us receive books (because we already have so many in their eyes)!

    1. You’re welcome and thank you! Oh your blog is definitely fab, all blogger would agree on that, I’m sure.
      It’s the same with as well trust me. In his eyes, I have many books and he keep complaining that I’m not reading what he has bought for me which is basically reason for ban. But it feels really amazing when he break it on occasions like anniversary and birthdays or festival. I feel lucky for that. 😉

  2. Yeah I find it strange that I find it super hard to DNF books, but not other things. hehe that’s a great way to get around a book buying ban 😉 I definitely think it’s fine to write in books (though never in other people’s books) Great answers!
