It may be April but nature has proven that only they can deem when Spring really begins. Kal tagged me in this last Christmas and since it’s still chilly (and therefore winter) outside, I thought why not take another break from dragging books and do a tag – it’s not like they’re going anywhere.
As bookwyrms, we are prone to doing some not nice bookish things.
It’s bound to happen once in our bookwyrm journey that we have one bookish cringe moment… or maybe three.
But we’re going to deny all of those moments.
So in honor of nature saying April Fools to the world, we’re doing the Naughty or Nice Tag!
Merry Christmas, April! let’s go over some fancy rules that I may break a few times in true Sophia fashion:
- Tag and link the person who tagged you
- Tag and link the creator (Jenn)
- Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done
- Tag another 10 people
Received an ARC and not reviewed it
That awkward moment when you have too many to choose from, so you close your eyes and hope for the best. Descendants of the Crane by Joan He is one of the many ARCs I have in my hoard that I haven’t gotten around to reviewing, let alone start reading.
Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley
I’ve been a very good bookwyrm and am sleeping at 88%.
Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did)
This is the greatest lie I always tell myself. Picking the first one that Goodreads shoves in my face is Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Robin Jaye Brown. I have thoughts and my review is
never coming soon.
Folded down the page of a book
Um… no. Just no.
Accidentally spilled on a book
Okay, accidents happen! And that one time was an accident! How was I supposed to know the recliner went that far back? 😶
DNF a book this year
#Awestruck by Sariah Wilson is just one of the few I tossed into DNF. A romance book that had a faker relationship than my own, I wasn’t convinced of anything in this book to continue the torture.
Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson, the raccoon is adorable and makes me smile every time I see it. Maybe I’ll get around to it one day.
Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)
This is my entire life’s occupation? Procrastination with reading should be my middle name.
Skim read a book
Only if it’s super boring or I’m at a place where the pace is slow.
Completely missed your Goodreads goal
I am super competitive and internally motivated so I like the challenge it gives me.
Borrowed a book and not returned it
I have always returned them… maybe several months later like the procrastinator I am, but it was returned!
Broke a book buying ban
We’re going to break the rules here and go with ever been on a book buying ban. My entire life is a book buying ban so inadvertently yes, yes I have been on one.
Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about
Ha! I am known to do this a lot, I think. But I’m forgetful, so maybe I forgot I even started the review.
Wrote in a book you were reading
The Illiad by Homer but it was for school purposes and I was forced to! I WAS UNDER DURESS.
Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads
No, because in the Goodreads Challenge, Every Book Counts!
Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend
I thought I answered this already but, no. Always returned–never in a timely fashion though.
Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book
I am a speedy bookwyrm who is good at dodgeball so therefore this must carry to other aspects of my life. I never give them the chance to ask.
Broke the spine of someone else’s book
My mom raised me to return things in better condition than when I received it, so I try really hard to keep it in the best condition that I possibly can.
Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged
The story of my life. I did this with my dust jacket of Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer and mentally shot daggers into myself when I accidently tore it when putting it on my dresser.
Sat on a book accidentally
I SWEAR–IT WASN’T THERE WHEN I CHECKED!
Naughty Meter: 11/20
Slightly naughty but not by much!
Is the weather getting along in your area? Is nature fooling you into thinking it’s a different season? Have you ever forgotten to write a review?
I have a confession…
This was really entertaining to do, actually, because… I AM NOT SOPHIA!
HAHA, Happy April Fool’s from Sam over at Fictionally Sam!
Cool points and cookie emojis to everyone who finds/comments on all the blog posts that participated in this little shenanigans! Bonus points to those who can guess at least one of us before the big reveal!
