TAG: The Guilty Reader

Hello Readers, Today I am going to be doing the Guilty Reader Book TAG which was created by Chami over on Youtube @ ReadLikeWildfire I am sorry this post is late, This week has been very busy. I stared my freshman year of college which was stressful yet exciting. Lets get on with the TAG

  1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?
    I haven’t really regifted a book before, however, I used to be obsessed with the House of Night series. One of the books came out near my birthday and my mother bought it for me then the next day one of my good friends gave it to me as well. I told her that I was very thankful and so honored that she thought of me, but I already got it. I told her she should give it to her sister who also liked the series.
  2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
    Yes, In high school I told my teacher that I read Animal Farm when I didn’t
  3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
    YES, I hate myself for it because it is one of my biggest pet peeves, however, I borrowed it from a mutual friend of a friend and we don’t really talk any more. I don’t know how to give it back.
  4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
    I don’t believe I have, but I have read companion novels out of “order”
  5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
    I am sure I have someway some way somehow.
  6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
    YES, I used to do this all the time when I first started reading. I haven’t done it in years. There is a part of me that still wants to do it, but I can’t bring myself to do it.
  7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
    No, but I did put a book on my Christmas list not realizing I already owned in it in a different cover. My mom brought it to my attention that I already owned it.
  8. Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?
    No, not that I can think of. I am pretty outspoken with my opinions so I don’t really have anything to hide.
  9. Have you every skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
    I don’t skip whole parts as a rule, but I do tend to skim sometimes.
  10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
    NEVER… that I can remember…
