The Guilty Reader Book Tag πŸ€«

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 πŸ˜‚.

2: Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?

I mean, come on!! I have but not really πŸ€ͺ. 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…!! πŸ˜›

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 πŸ˜‡.

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?


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 πŸ˜„.

I Tag: Anyone and Everyone who wants to do this tag πŸ˜ƒ. 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 πŸ˜‚.


Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

  1. I knew you where evil, Nehal πŸ˜‚ But then again, I may or may not have done a few of these myself…
    Also, what’s wrong with Wimpy Kid? (I think I borrowed one of the more recent books from my sister when I was like 21, so… 🀣)

  2. Ahhh, I cannot tell you how happy I feel upon hearing someone say that dog-earing books is okay. 😁 I used to do that all the time before, and omg the ~guilt~ I feel now whenever I hear someone say its so terrible agh.
    I spoiled all the HP books for my sister, but i guess thats okay since she looked up most of it on google too? lol.
    I loved reading your answers so much Nehal!

    1. Yes, I don’t understand why people are against those who dog-ear their books. As long as it’s their book, they can use it whatever way they want. Please don’t feel guilty for doing it, Anoushka!
      Spoiling books is fun, isn’t it? πŸ˜‚
      Thanks a lot, your comment really made my day 😌.


  3. Nothing is wrong with wimp kid, he is just a wimpy kid writing a diary, I mean journal. 😈 I am the reason my sister does not like to read books, whenever she picks up a book, I tell the whole story and ruin it for her 😁

  4. Yours truly is guilty of doing 2-6,8 and 9. Guess I did a lot of guilty bookish things when I was in middle school πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I never pegged you to read Wimpy Kid, though. This was pretty interesting to hear!(btw, did you read Dork Diaries at any point?) Also, spoiling books or movies does give you a sense of satisfaction when and after you’ve done it to others and yourself 😈

    1. Wow, that’s a hell lotta guilty stuff for you πŸ˜‚.
      And yeah, you haven’t. But I wasn’t sure others would do it or not πŸ˜›.
      Yup, I’ve read like the first three dork diaries books, they were fun, but then when I started the fourth one I realized how cringey they were! What about you?
      Yes, spoiling books is the ultimate best thing 😌.

      1. Yes it is! 😁
        *sheepish grin, and nervous laughter* Well…….I owned nearly the whole series back in middle school. People used to come to me and ask me if they could borrow some books πŸ˜…
        However, I did get bored of it eventually, so I guess that’s a first πŸ˜‚
