Prompts:

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.

  1. I have seen this tag done a few times and it seems to be so much longer every time I see it lol! I might do this one day, it looks fun! I love your answers. Writing in books is a massive peeve of mine too!

  2. I love your answers, Danni!! Your new prompt is a good one too. I have written in books, but those were homeschooling books that I made notes in. I found that when I was homeschooling, my notes on other pieces of paper either got lost or made no sense when trying to put them together with what I was trying to do, so I wrote in the books.
