Never Have I Ever Book Tag

Hi Blisses,

To be honest, I’m so tired these days. I don’t think I’ve been this tired ever in my life, but still, I realized that if I do nothing, it’s worse for me. So, I don’t know if you guys notice but I’ve been blogging more often these days. This is the only way I can keep myself functioning right now. I need to be busy and distracted. Which, in a way is a good thing. I’m back to blogging. LOL.

Anyway, this tag is from my friend, Misty over at Misty’s Book Space. Never Have I Ever is such very well-known phrase, I’m glad that there’s a book tag based on it. And of course, I’m grateful that Misty tagged me to do this.

Rules:

  1. Link back to the original creator! (Madame Writer)
  2. Link back to the person who tagged you!
  3. Answer all prompts.
  4. Add one more prompt of your own.
  5. Tag at least five people.
  6. Don’t lie.
  7. Have fun!

PROMPTS

Never have I Ever.. read a later book in a series – before reading the first book.

Yes. Almost always. I do it often with Static and Anthology types of series but never with Dynamic-type series. Especially with Historical Romance series, I usually read the latter books with higher ratings. LOL.

Never have I Ever.. burned a book.

NEVER. I will never ever burn a book no matter how much I hate it. Or even if I hate the author I won’t burn it. I have solutions though for these two situations. If I hate a book, I would either give it away, to a friend or as a donation. If I hate the author, I turn their book into an art. Like a bookfolding art. That way, it still makes me happy.

Never have I Ever.. read a book I knew I would hate.

I only read books I’m sure I would like but I did read a book once that I was sure I would hate. Thankfully, I was wrong. The book was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. From the title to the blurb, it was so obvious I won’t like the book but I gave in to the hype. And thank God I did, it’s still one of my favorite books of all time.

Never have I Ever.. wrote a fanfiction about my favorite books.

Nope. For some reason, I never thought of writing a fanfiction.

Never have I Ever.. loved a book when I was young, yet hated it when I got older.

No. Thankfully, I still love all the books I fell in love with when I was a kid.

Never have I Ever.. dressed up as one of my favorite literary characters.

No, but I always wanted to. I’m not really sure why I haven’t yet. Maybe it’s because I’m too lazy to prepare the stuff I need to prepare for the dress up. 🙂

Never have I Ever.. hated a book by an author I love.

No. This is such a great thing. I told Misty that my answers would be similar to hers on this tag so let me use her example – Nicholas Sparks. I loved Nicolas Sparks ever since I read A Walk to Remember in high school and since then I’ve been reading his books and I enjoyed reading all of them. I am aware that the plots of his books, especially the latest ones, have been formulaic but I still enjoy reading them.

Never have I Ever.. gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more.

There is no way I would leave a bookstore with only one book in hand. That just never happened before. Even if I intended to buy one, I would leave with at least two.

Never have I Ever.. read the ending of a book before reading the beginning.

I used to do this when I was younger. I was a sucker for a happy ending when I was in my teenage years so I needed to know if it has a happy ending before I spend hours of my life reading it. But I don’t do this anymore.

Never have I Ever.. read a book without the dust cover.

Is it even possible to read a book with the dust cover on? I find it so hard.

Never have I Ever.. skim read nearly half the book.

Never. I want to read every single word. I’m so worried I’ll miss something that’s vital to the plot so I never skim read.

Never have I Ever.. pretended to have read a book that I haven’t.

Ahm, why would I? So far, I haven’t had the reason to do this. If other people do it, there must be a reason. If you’ve ever done this, tell me why you did so. I’m curious. 🙂

Never have I Ever.. saw the movie before reading the book.

I do this often. There were so many instances that the adaptation convinced me to read the book. If the adaptation is bad but the plot is promising, I would want to read the book. And of course if the adaptation is good, the more I want to read the book.

Never have I Ever.. had a book boyfriend.

We all share the same answer here, right?

Never have I Ever.. read a history book or anthropology book for fun.

Hahaha. Sorry for the enthusiasts but no. History or Anthropology never interest me. I read them for school but never for fun.

Never have I Ever.. picked up a book based on the cover alone.

Lol. I. Do. This. All. The. Time. I’m weak, okay? I give in to temptation easily. Ugh! Even on Netgalley, I request most books there based on their covers. 🙂

Never have I Ever.. Bought multiple books in a series without having started it.

I have at least 11 books in the IN DEATH series by J.D. Robb and yeah, you guessed it — I’ve never read any of it.

Never have I Ever.. kept reading a series even if I didn’t love the first book.

I used to do this but not anymore. I used to keep reading a series even if I didn’t love the first book. I used to feel like it’s my responsibility to finish the series. I was so naive. LOL

Never have I ever.. kept buying books even though my bookshelves are full of unread books

LOL. I mean, right now, I don’t even recognize some of the books in my bookshelves anymore. I don’t even remember how I got some of them. So yeah, I keep buying books even though I have tons of unread books.

My New Prompt:

Never have I ever…buy/read a book because of a booktuber/book blogger

I’m easily influenced when it comes to books so I’ve lost count of the books I’ve bought and read because of book bloggers and booktubers. I have lots of favorites and I often base my TBR on their recommendations.

  1. Thanks for the tag Lili! I love answering bookish questions! And I agree about blogging being a wonderful distraction..I found that especially true during the early months of the pandemic! Blogging and reading to the rescue!

    1. During the early months of pandemic, I was actually too depressed to do anything. I didn’t even try doing anything. I wished I at least tried blogging. I would’ve been more productive during those months. lol.

      Looking forward to your answers. 🙂
