Received an ARC and not reviewed it.  

MANDY: NICE…BASICALLY! I have one ARC sitting in my Kindle that I haven’t read this year, but I didn’t read it and got it in one of those “read now for first 500”!! But otherwise, me good. Except for the ones I just got. OMG, I MIGHT ACTUALLY BE NAUGHTY???

SHA: NICE! I’ve reviewed all the ARCs I’ve reviewed this year. (And, well, ever, since I only started receiving ARCs this year.)

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley.

MANDY: NICE! I’m…I’m above 80 for sure. But idk actual stats. 

SHA: NICE! I think I’m currently at 80%? I have a few books I’m still working through, so those reviews are to-be submitted.

Rated a book on goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did).

MANDY: Um, um, um, I’m not actually sure. Because if I did do this, it would be most likely I forgot, and idk what I forgot??? But this also sounds like me. So I’m going to assume…SEMI NICE/NAUGHTY!

SHA: NICE! I’m actually bad with Goodreads in a different way. I put my reviews on the blog first (as scheduled posts) so I’ll forget to update any ratings or add books to my “currently reading” shelf.

Folded down the page of a book.


SHA: NICE! I don’t like folded down pages.

Accidentally spilled on a book.

MANDY: NICE! I’ve had it done to my books, but it was not me. I am too anal for this.

SHA: NAUGHTY! It was accidental. But sometimes I munch and read.

DNF a book this year.

MANDY: …I feel personally attacked. I would not be a DNF Queen if I didn’t DNF. So, um, NAUGHTY, of course!

SHA: NAUGHTY! DNF’d one book this year. Oh well.

Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it.

MANDY: NAUGHTY! Oh, hello, Barnes and Noble Phantom of the Opera edition. This girl never does classics, but I somehow own this book and a collection of The Picture of Dorian Grays. BUT THEY SO PURTY.

SHA: NICE! I don’t like spending money on things I won’t use. But I won’t say there haven’t been moments where I’ve been tempted.

Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework).

MANDY: NAUGHTY! Why do things when you can read??? 

SHA: NAUGHTY! The many, many times I had blog posts to do. Family commitments to prepare for. But find me curled up in a corner, reading.

Skim read a book.

MANDY: NAUGHTY! Skimming is an art, and I can whip it out like Picasso when needed.

SHA: NAUGHTY! I may not DNF often, but when I’m feeling a two star or below, I start skimming haaarddcore. This is where I understand the arguments pro-DNF (I just really need to know how things end, my curiosity is so intense).

Completely missed your Goodreads goal.

MANDY: NICE! I hold intense competitions with myself. I MUST WIN. AGAINST MYSELF. BUT I MUST WIN.

SHA: NICE! TBH, I lowballed really hard, since this was my first year using Goodreads and I had no clue how much I should expect myself to read.

Borrowed a book and not returned it.

MANDY: NICE! I always return. I get paranoid and must must must return. 

SHA: NAUGHTY! I didn’t do it this year, but this decision haunts me forever. I actually bought a book for someone years ago for their birthday. THEIR BIRTHDAY. And after they finished the book, they were like, here bestie, check it out! And I. Never. Gave it back.

Broke a book buying ban.

MANDY: Well, um, I don’t think I actually put myself on a ban? So I’m going with NICE! Can’t break what I don’t do. 

SHA: NICE! I never officially set a book buying ban though.

Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about.

MANDY: NAUGHTY! Alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the time. I literally had to give myself a time frame of reviewing 

SHA: NICE! I usually write reviews right after I finish a book. I do have two finished books that I didn’t write the reviews for, but I have detailed notes? So I count this as good.

Wrote in a book you were reading.

MANDY: NICE! I had to do it for school, and it was pure torture. I kept thinking the entire time WHY. wHY AM I DEFILING THIS BOOK. 

SHA: NICE! I used to do this. Especially with school books for uni English classes. But not anymore though.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads.

MANDY: NICE! Nope! I always have to do the Goodreads. I mean, I’m in a competition with myself. I CAN NEVER STOP.

SHA: NAUGHTY! I forget about Goodreads a lot. I update maybe once a week? And I definitely finish books faster than that (barring my slumps *sobs*) So sometimes I’ll update in a rush, but everything gets there eventually.

The Verdict?

Mandy has 10 NICE and 5 NAUGHTY.

Sha has 9 NICE and 6 NAUGHTY.

Do you think you’re more of a naughty or nice reader?
