Hey Pals!! Today, I am testing just how much of a guilty reader I am (Spoilers: a lot). So, this is me doing The Guilty Reader Book Tag. This was created by a Booktuber named Chami. Her video doesn’t exist anymore because it is private but anyways, it’s a cool tag, so I’m gonna do it today.
Also yeah, I wasn’t tagged by anybody. I’ve had this tag in my drafts folder since last year, when I was new to blogging and didn’t know many book bloggers and just kept writing cool book tag posts I came across. And this is such a cool tag, it would be a shame not to post it when I’ve got it written. Plus, Kathryn @ Kathryn Books kindaaaa tagged me for it, you can say that, I guess. I have other tags that I need to post too that I have actually been tagged for, I’ll get to them too so don’t be mad at me…that being said, let’s dive right in!!
Wow, my intros are getting longer, after all. And it is not a good sign 😞.
1: Have you ever re-gifted a book you’ve been given?
No, that would be bad, I guess 😂.
2: Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
I mean, come on!! I have but not really 🤪. I mean I might’ve acted like I have a lot of knowledge about a book someone just said something about just because I have heard a lot about it. And in a sense, I might’ve said yes but still, not really…!! 😛
3: Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
I’ve done that 😳. It’s…it’s a tragic story actually. So right before lockdown happened in India on 22nd March, 2020 (yes, I remember the exact date!), me and one of my friend’s sister exchanged novels. I gave her my Percy Jackson book 1, and she lent me a…well…she lent me a, ahem, *intense coughing*…a Wimpy Kid (HEY, DON’T JUDGE ME! SO WHAT IF I READ WIMPY KID? DO I JUDGE YOU WHEN YOU WAKE UP AT 2 A.M. TO READ EROTICA 😤!?) And the thing is, we never got to meet again because of COVID and now it’s been over a year and we still have each other’s books. So hehe.
4: Have you ever read a series out of order?
For sure! I have read various books in The Famous Five and The Secret Seven and The Naughtiest Girl series by Enid Blyton and The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney and all out of order. I mean, in these series it doesn’t really matter if you read them out of order. You just need to know a little bit about the characters and so after the first book, I read any book in these series without bothering to read then chronologically. But if it is a series like Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and similar ones that follow adventures that could spoil what happened before, I read them in order.
5: Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
Yes, I have 😏. It’s so much fun to spoil a book to someone and feel satisfaction at the look of indignance on their face. But I usually do that with friends who have already spoiled a book that I am reading so I do it to take revenge. And sometimes, just for fun, with friends. But don’t worry, it’s safe to read my posts on WordPress. I won’t spoil anyone here 😇.
6: Have you ever dog-eared a book?
No, I haven’t. But I don’t think it’s a bad habit at all. I’m perfectly fine with those who dog-ear their books. I mean, they are your books, you can do whatever you wanna do with them.
7: Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
As far as I can remember, I haven’t done that.
8: Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?
Nah, I haven’t done this either. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME, WHY HAVE I NOT DONE MORE GUILTY BOOKISH THINGS?! 😤
9: Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
Omg, I do this all the time. If I am not enjoying a book or I just wanna skip to the part where things actually start happening, I skip the extra portion. If the author is being really descriptive about the scenery, I skip that too. One time, I even skipped a couple of pages in a book because it was so boring.
10: Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
Nope! I am honest about my opinions towards the books I read 😄.
I Tag: Anyone and Everyone who wants to do this tag 😃. I would love to read your answers so let me know if you make a post or just comment the answers below of you don’t feel like making a blog of it.
Plus, it won’t be right to tag anyone when I wasn’t tagged either 😂.
