The Guilty Reader book tag

Screenshot (4)

Hey guys!! I saw this post over on Linda’s Little Library and decided to do it!!

I normally don’t associate the words guilty and reader, so I think this is a fun little tag to do… and it will be fun to see how much guilt I actually get from reading!!


1.  Have you ever re-gifted a book that you’ve been gifted?

No… I tend to hoard my books like the crazy dragon I am

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

Yes… all the time in English class (shh don’t tell my teacher…)

3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?

Not that I can remember… but I probably have at some point or another.

4. Have you ever read a series out of order?

IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, OKAY?

Okay, so I’ve read a few books from series out of order when they are more of “companion novels.” Also I didn’t even realize that I wasn’t reading the first book sometimes.

It just happens, okay?

5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

YES. AND I FELT SO BAD. INSTANT GUT-SINKING-INTO-THE-ABYSS BAD.

I accidentally told my friend about the big reveal at the end of Crown of Midnight (not gonna spoil it on here though!!) cause I forgot that he had just finished Throne of Glass (which I forced on him and then he loved).

Also I spoiled the end of Rouge One (the Star Wars movie) once. It just slipped out and it was a total mistake and then I died a little on the inside. I know that’s not a book… but still.

6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?

Yeah. I used to do it all the time (those poor Warrior books), but now I can’t do it anymore. I’ll literally use anything as a bookmark instead of doing that.

7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?

Yup. Sometimes I’ll be talking about a book I read and someone will go “hey, I really want to read that, can I borrow it?” and they are someone I don’t trust with my precious book babies (I’ll refer you to question 1 when I told you about my dragon-hoarding ways) so I just say “oh I don’t have the physical book” or “I actually borrowed it from someone else! Sorry.”

8. Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?

Nope. Sometimes I’ll skim ahead or flip to the end of the chapter to see how much further I have to go if the part I’m on is really boring (or if the book has multiple points of view and I want to get back to a different one), but I’ve never been able to just skip parts of books.

9. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?

I don’t think so? I don’t know why I ever would.


Talk to me!
