The Guilty Reader Book Tag

Hi, friends! After a super busy week at work, I want to do a post that's lower maintenance this week. So I searched book tags and this was one of the first to come up, and it sounded cool, and now here we are. I'm not sure who started it? The one I'm using is here, though. 

So yeah. Here goes!

Have you ever re-gifted a book you’ve been given?

Yes. Either because it was a book I already had or too much time passed without reading it and I lost interest. 

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

Lol yeah, some books for school back in the day. I didn't actually read all of Lord of the Flies. Or a couple others we were supposed to read in high school. I don't really say I've read books I haven't read in every day life, though--there's no point. 

Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?

Ugh. Yes. And I feel terrible about it.

Have you ever read a series out of order?

YES. I first did this a long time ago by accident. I checked a book out from the library and only realized it was book 2 in a series after I'd started reading it and didn't understand like any of the past events being referenced. More recently, my answer is still yes--with companion series, though. If they're standalone companions I have no problem picking up the ones I'm most interested in first.

Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

No? Not unless they asked me to, at least. But I still think no.

Have you ever dog-eared a book?

Yes. I did it a lot when I was younger. Now it's rare, and if I do it's only in paperbacks.

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

No. Why would I do that?

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

...No. Again, why? lol

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

YES. I am big on skimming or skipping around if I need to in order to hold my attention. Or if I'm super nervous about how something in a book is playing out, I will absolutely skip forward and then circle back to skim and fill in the gaps.

Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?

Sadly, yes. I fell into the Twilight hate with everyone else back in the day. I'm back to unapologetically loving it now, because really I do. And I never do this anymore. I'm much more confident in my reading choices these days. I like what I like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's it for this tag! What do you think? Would your answers be similar to mine??


  1. Oh fun! This is definitely a tag I will have to do when I have more time on my hands! Hopefully tonight! Lol.

    I found my answers mostly coincide with yours. Though I never bad mouthed a book I liked. If I don't like something, I'll say why and why it sucked but emphasize on the "for me." I know I've ADORED books other people hate and it doesn't bother me any.

    1. Please leave a link when you do it—I’d love to see your post!! And I was a moody teenager when I badmouthed Twilight, lol. I don’t ever do that now.
