1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it: Yup, guilt as charged! I have a few ARCs that have been sitting on my shelf for a year that I haven’t picked up and honestly probably won’t. In my defence, I never requested them. They just randomly arrived and they just aren’t for me. Maybe I should host a giveaway? Hmmm….
2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on NetGalley: Nope! I’m pretty good with staying above 80% on NetGalley.
3. Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did): My issue is usually remembering to cross-post reviews to Goodreads.
4. Folded down the page of a book: Yes *hangs head* I do it quite often if I’m out and about and can’t find something to act as a bookmark.
5. Accidentally spilled on a book: Not in a long, long time. I’m usually pretty good about keeping my books away from liquids while reading.
6. DNF a book this year: I’ve DNFed a few books this year. Why struggle through something when you could be reading something else that you know you’ll like? There’s just not enough time in the day.
7. Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it: No because I honestly don’t have money to spare on purchasing books I know I’ll never read.
8. Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework): All of the time! Why grade essays when I can read a book?
9. Skim read a book: This usually happens with books I am about to DNF or those that I should have given up on.
10. Completely missed your Goodreads goal: This year will be the first time that I won’t make my goal. It’s amazing how not reading for around 3 months can put you so far behind. I’m sad about it but there’s always next year!
11. Borrowed a book and not returned it: No, never. I get upset when I don’t get back books I’ve lent out and never want to be that person.
12. Broke a book buying ban: I’ve tried bans but they just never work. Sales on Amazon are always my downfall. A book for $1.99? Oh, yes please!
13. Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about: It’s scary to see how many half written reviews I have sitting in my drafts folder. I start one, get stuck, move onto another and repeat.
14. Wrote in a book you were reading: Only when I’m studying Spanish. I highlight words I don’t know and then write the definition in the columns.
15. Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads: No, I’m pretty good for adding books that I’ve read. I like keeping track of the books I read, especially since it helps a lot with the blog.
