The Guilty Reader Tag

So the guilty reader tag has been going around booktube for a while now, and I have always been interested in the questions so thought that I would do it myself although I wasn't tagged. The Guilty Reader Tag was created by Chami at ReadLikeWildfire where you can see the original so let's get started...

1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?
No, I don't think so. I don't tend to give people books that I have been given but if I don't like a book that someone has given to me I will probably give it to charity.

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

No, I don't think so. If someone asks me, I will probably not say anything rather than say I have read the book.

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

Again, I don't think I have. People have done it to me which is probably why I don't do it as I know the pain of losing a book so no...

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

Cherry Heaven
OK, so I have actually done this. Back in the day when I didn't know about YA, I picked up a book called Cherry Heaven by Lucy Adlington and I remember being really confused while reading the story so of course when I remembered the book I added it on Goodreads as you do and discovered that this was the second book in a series. It all makes sense now. This is all so weird as I interviewed Lucy Adlington a few weeks ago so...









5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

The shame! So yes, I actually have spoiled Mockingjay for someone. Basically, they were reading it and as everyone knows, there are many deaths in this book and they asked me if someone died and I said I couldn't remember but I did spoil a death that happens about halfway through, they just hadn't got there yet... No, I am not spoiling it again!











6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?

Yes, I do it all the time and I don't have a problem with it. I did it a couple of days ago, it tends to be when I don't have a bookmark to hand though...

7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
No, not initially but in the moment if I forget that I own a book maybe but no. 

8. Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?

No. I went through a Twilight phrase. I still own the books and I don't really care what people think so yeah. I probably will not get rid of them soon so you know if you read you should be proud that read no matter what it is!

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

Recently I skipped a section of The November Criminals by Sam Munson and it featured almost a page of Holocaust jokes so as you do you skip them but not a chapter or section. I have a habit of reading dialogue over the long description and this is something that I need to teach myself out of. 

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

No, I don't think so. Be proud of what you read!

Do you consider yourself a guilty reader? Have you done this tag?

See you soon,

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
