Sorry for being quiet the last few days. I’ve been reading The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell (loving it so far!) and preparing for the arrival of my new puppy. Also I’ve been trying to get my YouTube channel on a more consistent upload schedule, so I’ve been filming and editing videos for that.
Madness aside, I am back today with another book tag for #TagTuesday! Today, we’re going to be doing the Guilty Reader Book Tag!
I first saw Lala from BooksandLala do this tag. Here’s her original video:
This tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire; you can watch her original video here:
1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?
I don’t believe so. I know I’ve bought books for other people, read them, and then gifted them (is that better or worse?). I don’t think I’ve ever regifted a book though.
2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
Yeah. When I was on my reading hiatus, I did fib a bit about what books I was and was not reading. Also, there were a few books in high school that I only read the sparknotes for, but not the actual book. Whoops. 😬
3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
Yeah. I’m SO bad about this one. In high school, my school library was not the best, so I have a couple of titles from there that they weren’t 100% aware that I checked out and I still own them. 😬
4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
Yes, but by accident! I didn’t realize that there were other books in the series until I started reading the book, was slightly confused on the characters but followed the book well enough and then picked up what I thought was the sequel to realized that it was actually the first book. It was a Meg Cabot series I read a while ago, but I don’t remember what it’s called. It used exclusively email format though.
5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
Yes I have. Second grade/younger Becky wasn’t great with the whole concepts of spoilers and I had no problem telling the world about great books (or movies) I watched and how they ended.
6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
Nope. Never. I don’t even like it when books in my bag get bent by accident. I have no problem if you annotate your book, but bending pages makes me cringe. I hate it so much.
7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
Yes. Back during the Twilight craze, a bunch of people borrowed by copies of the books, but some people didn’t return them. I kept replacing them and after a while I was fed up with it, so I kept lying and saying other people were borrowing them until everyone finally backed off.
8. Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?
Also yes. There are some books that I read out of curiosity or as a guilty pleasure and I just straight up denied it when I was asked (nope, not the 50 Shades books, I was honest about reading those).
9. Have you every skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
Nope. I feel like even just skimming a sentence will make me lost.
10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
Yuppers. Towards the end of my Twilight days, I started badmouthing them before I actually “turned.” Also, I actually don’t mind the last Fifty Shades book, um Fifty Shades Freed I think. I thought it was the best of the three and there were a couple parts of the book I actually really enjoyed. It doesn’t stop the series as a whole from being garbage, but I did actively badmouth all three.
And so as you guys can see, I’m a pretty guilty reader.
Let me know down in the comments!
