Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag | Blogmas Day 12

Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Blogmas Day 12

Welcome to Day 12 of Blogmas 2020! Today, I am doing the Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag which I found on Jenniely. Since this questions in this tag seem to be a mix of reading habits and taking care of your books, I’m predicting that my answers are going to be an even split. Let’s see if I end up in the naughty or nice list this year!


Received an ARC and not reviewed it

Nice! I’m fully caught up on all 2020 ARCs and am in fact about to start on a couple from next year too! The tracking spreadsheets actually worked!

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley

Nice! My current rating is at 72%, but in my defence, I recently got approved for 6 ARCs, all 2021 titles, so I won’t be starting on them for atleast a few more weeks.

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

Naughty! I have a couple pending that I keep meaning to get to but something else always comes up…

Folded down the page of a book

Nice! This is something I would never do – I’d rather memorize the page number until I find a bookmark over *gasp* folding down a page.

Accidentally spilled on a book

Nice! After a couple of near misses, I am now extra careful with food and drink around my books.

DNF a book this year

Nice! I struggled with a few, and might need to push one or two huge titles into the backlist, but no DNFs this year!

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

Nice! It’s very rare that I buy a book I haven’t read or atleast extensively researched so this is a moot point.

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

Naughty! This is pretty much a daily occurrence, so…

Skim read a book

Naughty! I absolutely did this with quite a few books this year, especially around the times I had really tight deadlines and the story was just too slow.

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Nice! I completed my final reading goal of 200 in November and I’m trying to see how many books I can surpass it by by the end of the year!

Borrowed a book and not returned it

Nice! I’m always really careful about returning borrowed books, whether it’s from the library or elsewhere.

Broke a book buying ban

Nice! I didn’t exactly have a book buying ban this year, and while I went a little crazy around Black Friday, it was nothing too extreme. Well, there’s still Boxing Day right?

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

Naughty! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve done this. It’s actually the reason why I started reading a book within two weeks of when I have the review scheduled for posting.

Wrote in a book you were reading

Nice! Another completely unthinkable act – I’ve never even scribbled in my textbooks, so my actual precious books are totally out of the question.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

Naughty! If my phone isn’t at hand when I finish a book, chances are it’ll be weeks before I remember to update it on Goodreads.

10/15 Nice!


Looks like I’m on the Nice list this year! What about you? I’m not going to be tagging anyone specifically, but do feel free to do this tag if you like it. Make sure to link back so I can read your answers!

    Oh my gosh I love this tag. And mega congrats on getting all your ARCs done! That’s my goal for next year to make a really focused effort on getting those reviews up on time. I’ll always do them, just spectacularly behind on some of them. Lots of reading and reviewing ahead for me. This is so much fun, loved it.

      Thanks! I kind of overdid it with the ARCs this year, so it was a relief when I got everything reviewed in time. Have to be more careful with the request button next year 😅

    Neat questions! Many of them don’t apply to me, since I read on Kindle. But I think I have had at least one book I didn’t finish, and one book I intended to review, but forgot what it was about. Oops! 🙂

        I think next year I will try to be more conscious of what I add to my TBR as well and research more the book before blindly requesting an ARC or buying it.
