Never have I ever… read a later book in a series – before reading the first book.
I’ve done this, but it has always been accidental, and a lot of the times it was a book that could be read as a standalone anyway.
Never have I ever… burned a book.
Definitely NOT! Why would you burn a book?!
Never have I ever… read a book I knew I would hate.
Not that I can think of. I’ve definitely read books that I was unsure about before starting, but if I knew I would hate a book, I just wouldn’t bother reading it.
Never have I ever… written a fanfiction about my favourite books.
I have never done this! I know a lot of people love this sort of thing, but I’ve never really been in to fanfiction.
Never have I ever… loved a book when I was young, yet hated it when I got older.
I can’t think of any. There aren’t many books from my childhood that I have read as an adult, but the ones I have, I have still loved.
Never have I ever… dressed up as one of my favourite literary characters.
As far as I can remember, I have never dressed as a specific character, but I did dress as a Hogwarts student for a fancy dress party quite a few years ago!
Never have I ever… hated a book by an author I love.
I actually don’t think I have! My favourites seem to be consistently brilliant.
Never have I ever… gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more.
ALL THE TIME. This is a very regular occurrence for me.
Never have I ever… read the ending of a book before reading the beginning.
Unfortunately, I have made this mistake in the past… but never again!
Never have I ever… read a book without the dust cover.
I do this all the time. I always take the dust cover off when reading, because not only does it get in the way, but it also gets damaged very easily.
Never have I ever… skim-read nearly half the book.
Nope. I’ve never been a skim reader.
Never have I ever… pretended to have read a book that I haven’t.
No, and I really don’t understand why people do this… What could you possibly get out of pretending you’ve read a book? If anything, it could get you in to an awkward situation of someone asking you about it, and you having no idea how to answer. It really just makes no sense!
Never have I ever… seen the movie before reading the book.
Guilty. There are a lot of books that I saw the movie/TV adaptation for before reading the book. There’s actually a lot that I’ve watched and still not read too.
Never have I ever… had a book boyfriend.
I’ve never used the term “book boyfriend”, haha!
Never have I ever… read a history book or anthropology book for fun.
Well of course I have! I particularly love reading history books. I’ve always been fascinated by different periods in time, and I love learning about them.
Never have I ever… picked up a book based on the cover alone.
I think most of us are guilty of doing this. I know you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but sometimes it’s too hard to resist a beautiful cover!
Never have I ever… bought multiple books in a series without having started it.
Yes… I owned the entire Why Mummy series before I started it! I have now read the first 2 books of the series, and loved them both.
Never have I ever… kept reading a series even if I didn’t love the first book.
Not if I didn’t enjoy the first book, no.
If I did enjoy book 1 but didn’t love it, I would still read book 2, because sometimes a series needs time to grow.
Never have I ever… kept buying books even though my bookshelves are full of unread books.
Story of my life. My shelves have been full of unread books for years, but I just can’t stop buying new books!
Never have I ever… bought/read a book because of a booktuber/book blogger.
Of course I have. I love finding new books because of other book bloggers (I don’t watch booktube).
Never have I ever… given a book as a shower, birthday, Christmas, graduation, or wedding gift.
I ALWAYS give books as gifts, people are probably fed up of receiving books from me! haha.
Never have I ever… thrown away or donated a book you really wanted to keep?
Nope. If I want to keep a book, then I keep the book… This probably doesn’t help my lack of space for new books though!
My New Prompt:
Never have I ever… written in a book.
Apart from in school when they MAKE you write in a book, I haven’t done this. It is actually one of my biggest pet peeves! To make notes, I usually do it on my phone.
