Bookish Naughty List

This post has been floating around for the last month and I thought what better way to get started with my bookish blog than to see if I made it on the naughty or nice list!

  • Received an ARC and not reviewed it
    In my defense it was an ARC of an ice cream making book and I got it in the middle of winter so…
  • Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
    I had literally no idea what Netgalley was until I saw this post. I’m not 100% sure I will be utilizing their resources, but they are a pretty snazzy website to check out if you’re interested in ARC.
  • Rated a book on goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
    My blog is so young that I haven’t had the opportunity to do this but I’m sure I will at some point.
  • Folded down the page of a book
    Come on who hasn’t…
  • Accidentially spilled on a book
    I don’t think I’ve spilled on a book but I remember when I was like 12 I dropped my book in a puddle and cried for a week.
  • DNF a book this year
    Which book 😂
  • Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
    I can promise I’ve never done this…with the exception of different Harry Potter covers to books I’ve already read.
  • Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)
    All. The. Time.
  • Skim read a book 
    Do school books count?
  • Completely missed your Goodreads goal 
  • Borrowed a book and not returned it
    I only borrow books from the two libraries I work at so, no. I would have no excuse.
  • Broke a book buying ban
    It wasn’t a hard and fast book buying ban rule but I definitely knew I should have saved the 4.99 for something else…
  • Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
    Let’s be honest. I rarely write an extensive review because my feelings are too caught up in the book after anyway. So it’s either a) really short or b) nonexistent reviews.
  • Wrote in a book you were reading
    No and this makes me cringe until next year just thinking about it.
  • Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads 
    Uhm no. I like instant gratification as well as outside reinforcement. I constantly update and never miss a book.

7/15…I’d say that put’s me on the NICE list!!
