The Naughty or Nice Book Tag! #Suntag

Happy Sunday, guys! Let’s ease back into our Sunday routine with a tag! I wasn’t nominated but saw this on Norrie‘s blog (go check it out!) and thought the Nice/Naughty theme was perfect for a rainy January day!

nice or naughty

Received an ARC and not reviewed it?

Guilty… I requested a book on NetGalley and forgot to download it before the archive date… Stupid, I know!


I currently have… a certain number of ARCs waiting but all will be reviewed! Well, probably 90%. There are a couple I won’t like, or won’t be inspired to write about.

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley?

Not since I realised there was a rating ratio, haha!


When I first started using NG, I didn’t know about it and went on a request spree…

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

I don’t think so! If a review is missing, I probably forgot to add it but it’ll be on my blog. I don’t rate a book if I don’t plan on explaining why I chose the number of stars given.

Folded down the page of a book?



Accidentally spilled on a book?

I didn’t. The dogs did it!

you did this.gif

DNF a book this year?

Not yet…

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

Hmmm no. I don’t see the point. I don’t buy for pretty only!

Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else?

Every day! Should be practicing English? READING! Should be listening to a conversation I am supposed to be taking part in? READING! Watching TV? READING. You can read instead of doing almost everything!


Skim read a book?

Only if I have to review it and I’m not getting the good vibes. I’ll skim read before reaching the book tour organiser / publicist… Otherwise, I like the words to take me on a journey and you can’t do that if you don’t read for real!

Completely missed your Goodreads goal?

Nope, but even if I did, it wouldn’t matter. Yes, it feels good when you add numbers to Goodreads, but the real deal is to enjoy what you pick, not read for the sake of reaching a goal.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library?

Nope! I have been late in returning books but have always brought them back to their home for others to enjoy.

Broke a book buying ban?

What the heck is a book buying ban? :p Of course I have! I have no willpower when it comes to books. But there are worse things in life!

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

Unfortunately, yes… The guilt NEVER DISAPPEARS! Seriously!


Wrote in a book you were reading?

Only mandatory books for university! I prefer to use Post-It notes. They’re colourful, pretty, and you can take them off!

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads?

Yes. Some books are not listed on Goodreads, others are read for work and so shouldn’t appear online…This is why I keep track of my readings in a separate spreadsheet.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend?

I am not so mean!!! I would never do this! Friends have done it to me and I hate it, so why would I do it?

Poor friends…

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book?

Yes… So many books were lost because I kindly and innocently lent books. I do not forgive!!!

i badly want to be insulting.gif

Broke the spine of someone else’s book?

Who do you think I am? A Serial Book Killer?

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ending up making it even more damaged?

I don’t think so. I hate it when jackets get damaged from a trip in my bag but I don’t take them off, they are part of the book. Do you go out without panties? You can’t expect your books to go out without them either!


Sat on a book accidentally?

Yep. My butt is guilty!



Nice = 8 / Naughty = 12

I’m a naughty book lover! 😂

And you?

  1. Oh, naughty! Haha 😁
    I had my cat do all sorts of weird stuff to my books. He had this thing for chewing them, like a dog.
    Since i have mainly kindle books now, not lending it became so much easier 😁


  2. Ahh what a fun tag, I loved it 🙂 and, aerm, it has happened to me too to forget to download a book before its archive date on NetGalley, I’m still mad about it haha.


  3. I love this tag, these are the kind of fun questions I like to answer! Happily my netgalley rating is now above 60%, of course I have a few waiting for reviews though…..
    I might just do this tag to see how naughty or nice I am…….
    Love Amanda xxx


    1. It was nice to prep this post, very calming and fun! I had another NG spree last week and got approved for all of them, but I’m still over 60 so I can be forgiven! Now I need to double my reading!!!
      I’d love for you to do this tag! I’m sure you’re nice 😀 xx


  4. Such a fun tag even I did this one in the past :-). I think we have many similar answers although I seem to remember I was mostly nice ;-). The only thing we really differ in is that I do take the jacket of a hardback but then I can count them on my one hand so they are very precious! Great answers Meggy!
