The Bookish Naughty List 2018!

bookish naughty list

Hey everyone! I know I’ve sort of fallen off the Blogmas train the past couple of days, but the final weeks of school were really kicking my booty.  That being said, I’m officially on winter break, and I could not be happier! 🙌🏼  This semester was b r u t a l!

Anyway, today I’m doing the Bookish Naughty List book tag again!  I did it last year, but let’s see how this year compares.  Will I be naughty or nice?!

Here we go!

Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✔

Ugh, yes I’ve done this and I always feel so bad about it!  I have every intention of reading all the ARCs I receive, I just don’t always get them done before they’re released.  I promise they’ll be read someday, though!

Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley

Okay, so I really thought I was going to be naughty for this one.  I’m actually at 71% right now.  Plus, now that I’m on winter break, I’m hoping to read even more and get that percentage even higher!

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

Here’s looking at you Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel 😂🙈

Folded down the page of a book

Nope! Dog-earring books isn’t my style. 😂

Accidentally spilled on a book

I have in the past, but not this year, thankfully! 🙌🏼

DNF a book this year ✔

There were a few this year that I started, didn’t get very far in, and decided that they weren’t the book for me right now.

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

It may take me years, but I do always do plan on reading every book I buy.  Do I actually end up reading every book? No…but my intentions are pure, I promise!

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

Oh yes, I do this far too often.  In fact, I ended up turning in my final paper for the semester an hour before it was due because I may or may not have spent too much time reading instead of working…oops!

Skim read a book ✔

I’ll be honest, I don’t do this often, but if I’m reading a book that I’m really struggling to get through – especially when I’m almost done – I do skim some of the passages. 🙈

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

Not this year! 🎉🎉 I’ll have you all know that I’ve actually surpassed it! 💃🏼

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library

My books may be returned late, but they always get returned!!

Broke a book buying ban ✔

Library book sales…I just can’t pass them up!

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

Hahaha! I’ve done this before, I admit. But not this year!

Wrote in a book you were reading

The only book I write in is my Bible, and I don’t really think that counts for this.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I gotta make sure every book makes it to my Goodreads goal, so no for this one. Haha!

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

No, I’m actually pretty good about returning things!

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book

😂😂 I’ve done this before, but I actually didn’t have to do this in 2018!

Broke the spine of someone else’s book

Not this year! 🙌🏼

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

Unfortunately, this happens to me a lot.  Surprisingly, this didn’t happen this year, though! 🎉

Sat on a book accidentally ✔

Yes, this has happened more times than I would like to admit. 🙈  Thankfully, the books were not harmed!

Final Score 7/20

Hey! I actually did pretty good this year! I guess I’m on the nice list after all!😁🎄

The Bookish Naughty List Book Tag!

Hello!  It’s time for another holiday book tag!  I was tagged by Jenn @ Jenniely for the Bookish Naughty List book tag. 😁  So, let’s decide if I deserve to go on the the naughty list this year!

Received an ARC and not reviewed it  ✅

Hasn’t everyone done this? 🙈  Especially with things like NetGalley, it’s so easy to receive an ARC, and not get around to reviewing it.  I plan on finishing them all someday…I JUST NEED MORE TIME!

Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley

My feedback rating is currently at 75%, which actually isn’t too bad, and better than I thought!

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

Bahahaha this is every book reviewer’s biggest lie. 😭 I have good intentions, guys! I really do!

Folded down the page of a book

I try to keep my books looking extra nice, so I don’t intentionally fold pages.

Accidentally spilled on a book ✅

Is this for this year? Or ever?  I’ve done fairly well this year at not spilling on my books.  Like I said, I try to be careful…that being said, I’ve had my fair share of splashes of tea on my books throughout the years.  And, one time I spilled a giant glob of applesauce on my favorite book when I was, like, 10.  It traumatized me. 😭

DNF a book this year

Not this year!

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

Well, I’d like to say I intend on reading every book I get.  When I actually will get to it, however, is another thing. 🙈

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

All. The. Time!  I admit, I put off so many things to read.

Skim read a book ✅

I don’t do this too often, but if I’m not feeling the book, and I’m too close to the end to DNF it, I’ll skim it.  🙈

Completely missed your Goodreads goal

I think I’m going to reach my goal!  I’ve read 48 of 52 books, and I don’t think that’s too crazy for me to accomplish in 15 days.  I’m still holding out hope!

Borrowed a book and not returned it

Nope! 🙅‍♀️ It drives me crazy, when people don’t return my books, so I always make it a point to return borrowed books promptly.  Library books, though, I always return them…I don’t always return them quite as promptly. 🙈

Broke a book buying ban ✅

Shh…Don’t we all? .  🙈😜

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

This one’s for you The Graveyard Book!  I remember the main premise, and that I enjoyed the book, but I don’t remember enough specific details to write a review for it anymore. I still have the review in my drafts, but unless I reread it, it’s never going to get a review. 😭

Wrote in a book you were reading

Unless you count the Bible, which I’m not, because that’s different, I don’t write in books.🙅‍♀️

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads

I haven’t done this either!  I gotta reach that Goodreads goal! 😅


So, out of 15 things, I’ve been naughty for 8 of them.  I guess that makes me on the bookish naughty list! 😭🙈😂
