#PratsReads - Bookish Naughty Or Nice Tag

I recently re-discovered bookish tags on blogs ( though some lovely book bloggers I follow on twitter). While I was wondering which one to do, I got tagged by Leah to do this one, which originally was started by Jenn.

The rules -

Rules Tag & link the person who tagged you
Tag and link back to the original post by Jenn
Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
Tag 10 people to join in!

Even if you weren't tagged by anyone, just join in!

1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✔

Yes, My NetGalley dashboard is clear evidence of this. Never done this with books that come from the author/publisher directly though.

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

 I have never able to cross even 50% *hides behind the book pile*

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

 I *never* make such promises knowing that I may or may not write a blog post about the book.

4. Folded down the page of a book

Nopes. One thing I never do to books.

5. Accidentally spilled on a book 

 Never.  Don't attempt to eat or drink absentmindedly if I am reading. 

6. DNF a book this year ✔

I consider them to be postponed perhaps. But you never know ;)

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

 No. I don't pick ugly covers but I won't buy only for pretty ones either.

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

I have read while I am meant to do everything else - Work, chores, eat, sleep, meet friends or even pamper my husband .. you get the drift :D

9. Skim read a book ✔

Mostly romance/erotica. I skip the sex scenes after the first one. 

10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal ✔

 Only once. In 2012 [Dont know how that happened ] 

11. Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library 

 No. won't happen. 

12. Broke a book buying ban ✔

What ban? *looks at the 3 books I bought today* 

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

 Yeah. That's why I do not promise to review every book I read. 

14. Wrote in a book you were reading ✔

I do not mind writing in books. I sometimes leave notes for the person in books I gift or ask people to do the same for me. 

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

Never happened since I started using Goodreads.

16. Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

No. I borrow rarely and often it becomes a gift :D

17. Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book 

No. I would be happy if someone borrows a book I own and reads it. More the merrier.

18. Broke the spine of someone else’s book

 Not a chance. 

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

No way!

20. Sat on a book accidentally ✔

 When you are surrounded by books, that can happen. Right?

Final Score: 9 /20
Did I just dodge being on the naughty list! phew!
Where's my reward?


  1. Yay! I knew you’d be on the nice list!!!

  2. I love the idea of considering a DNF a "postponed" read. I have "postponed" a couple this year, though I'm not sure if i'll return to them.

    Loved reading your answers!


Keep reading, keep suggesting, keep commenting
