Pretty straight forward right? Let’s get into this!
Never Have I Ever… read a later book in a series before reading the first book
I don’t think so. Maybe accidentally as a child, but I can’t remember a specific situation so no.
Never Have I Ever… burned a book
Okay technically yes but not really. So in university sometimes we could have to get a coursebook for a class, which is basically just a bound packet of printed out readings. And when I say bound, it was just regular paper bound together with a plastic spiral. It was really a rip-off that they made us buy those. But anyway, sometimes at the end of the year I would bring my notes home and burn them since we have a wood fireplace at my house. So I think I’ve just cut off the plastic and burnt one of those coursebooks if you can count that as a book. For some reason, it’s satisfying burning your notes after you finish your final exam haha.
Never Have I Ever… read a book I knew I would hate
Yes, for school. Two that immediately come to mind are The Catcher in the Rye and A Complicated Kindness. I dislike both of those very much.
Never Have I Ever… wrote a fanfiction about my favourite books
I’m not much of a fanfiction person. I had a brief stint of reading it when I was 13 but otherwise I haven’t read much, so why would I write it? I’d be more inclined to write original fiction just because then I wouldn’t be bound by the fictional universe that I was writing about. But I have studied fanfiction in school which is pretty cool!
Never Have I Ever… loved a book when I was young and hated it when I got older
I think everyone has a love/hate relationship with Twilight. I was obsessed with the series when I was younger. And then once the movie series was done I had this streak where I became pretentious and thought that Twilight was trash. But there I’ve come back around and realized that the flaws are kind of what makes it so good. And I think TikTok’s craze with Twilight has really brought me back to team Twilight. So I guess this is yes and no because I like it again? Lol I can’t answer any question correctly.
Never Have I Ever… dressed up as one of my favourite literary characters
No, I haven’t. I’ve dressed up as Olive from Easy A one year for Halloween. That’s the closest I’ve ever been, but that’s a movie so it doesn’t count.
Never Have I Ever… hated a book by an author I love
You guys might remember that in the summer I read The Siren by Kiera Cass. I loved The Selection series but was quite disappointed by The Siren. So I’m not sure if disappointed is the same as hate but that’s all I can think of.
Never Have I Ever… gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more
You mean every time I go into a bookstore?
Never Have I Ever… read the end of a book before reading the beginning
I’ve done this many times by accident. I’ll skip to the end just to see how many pages a book is and accidentally see something on the last page that kind of spoils the book. Usually, if I haven’t started the book yet I can kind of forget what I read, but if it’s a series then that’s the worst.
Never Have I Ever… read a book without the dust cover
I am team dust cover all the way. I don’t get people who read without them. Most books under the dust cover are plain so I want to see the dust cover instead. Plus I kind that the dust cover helps protect the book more. But either way, I prefer softcovers over hardbacks anyway.
Riddhi’s additional prompt was: Never Have I Ever… had a book boyfriend
I’ve had quite a few over the years. But my original one was Fang from the Maximum Ride series. I’ll keep the rest of them to myself 😉
And now my additional prompt is: Never Have I Ever… bought a book and not read it before getting rid of it
I am guilty! When I was a teenager I bought so many books because I would use all my money from work and birthdays to buy books. When I redid my room when I moved back from university and did a huge book purge. I got rid of some books that I was just not interested at all in reading because they were middle school level. I have a few middle school books and quite a bunch of YA books but I don’t mind them that much. I just spread them out between more mature books.
So I think my score is 8/12? Depending on how you count my half-answers haha. And finally, I am supposed to tag people but I don’t have anyone to tag! I’ll be honest and admit I am more involved in the booktok community than the book blogging community. So if you guys have any favourite book bloggers, please leave them in the comments so I can expand my network!
