Hello my lovelies! One of my favorite games to play when I first meet a new group of people (which for theatre people happens A LOT) is Never Have I Ever, so when I saw the Never Have I Ever Book Tag over at ZeeZee With Books I knew I had to do it. It was created by Madame Writer/Anne With a Book.
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!
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ A LATER BOOK IN A SERIES BEFORE READING THE FIRST BOOK.
I read the 2nd book (and the rest of the series) of The Princess Diaries before reading the first book since I had seen the movie…
NEVER HAVE I EVER… BURNED A BOOK.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ A BOOK I KNEW I WOULD HATE.
Hmmm… do books I was required to read for school count? I can’t remember ever choosing to read a book I knew I would hate…
NEVER HAVE I EVER… WROTE A FANFICTION ABOUT MY FAVORITE BOOKS.
I’ve never written fan-fic, or read any really.. but my friend Kristen and I did write a parody of “Mamma I’m A Big Girl Now” from Hairspray called “Snape We Hate You Now” after Half-Blood Prince… It was pretty brilliant if I do say so myself.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… LOVED A BOOK WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND HATED IT WHEN I GOT OLDER.
I don’t think I have done this… although I am re-reading through a bunch of old favorites lately so it could definitely happen.
NEVER HAVE I EVER…DRESSED UP AS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS.
Definitely done this! I dressed up as pregnant Tonks for the Deathly Hallows Part 1, and then Lucius Malfoy for the Deathly Hallows Part 2 releases.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… HATED A BOOK BY AN AUTHOR I LOVE.
Ooooh this is a good question… hmmm I really don’t think I’ve ever HATED a book by an author I love, but there are definitely a few that I didn’t care for as much.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… GONE INTO A BOOKSTORE TO BUY ONE BOOK AND COME OUT WITH MANY MORE.
BAHAHA. Obviously I have done this too many times.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ THE END OF A BOOK BEFORE READING THE BEGINNING.
Ok… I’ve never done this on purpose, but I have looked in the back of the book to see how many pages there were and accidentally read something I shouldn’t have…
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ A BOOK WITHOUT THE DUST COVER.
Oh I almost always do this. I read in the bath a lot and I don’t want anything adding to the slippage. Also I travel with my books a lot and I don’t want the dust cover to get all torn up.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… SKIM-READ NEARLY HALF THE BOOK.
GUILTY. I very rarely DNF books, so I have definitely skimmed just to get it over with.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… PRETENDED TO HAVE READ A BOOK I HAVEN’T READ.
I am embarrassed to say that I have done this, but I for sure have. It’s usually about a classic that I should have read but haven’t yet, or a book for school that I gave up on.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… SAW THE MOVIE BEFORE READING THE BOOK.
I always prefer to read the book first, but I have done this a few times. Gone Girl and The Help are two that come to mind.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… HAD A BOOK BOYFRIEND.
I have too many to count. I’m a book-boyfriend polygamist.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ A HISTORY BOOK OR ANTHROPOLOGY BOOK FOR FUN.
Hmmm… The only one that comes somewhat close would be The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, but that’s written like fiction so idk if that counts…
NEVER HAVE I EVER… PICKED UP A BOOK BASED ON THE COVER ALONE.
Of course I have. I always read the back before purchasing though.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… BOUGHT MULTIPLE BOOKS IN A SERIES WITHOUT HAVING STARTED IT.
A couple times! I found the Summer Trilogy by Jenny Han at Half-Priced Books for 5$ each, and I knew I would like them.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… KEPT READING A SERIES EVEN IF I DIDN’T LOVE THE FIRST BOOK.
All the time! Usually the only way I won’t continue on with a series is if I actively disliked the first book.
NEVER HAVE I EVER… READ A BOOK SO QUICKLY THAT I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED BY THE END.
I think I have done this…but I don’t remember hahaha
NEVER HAVE I EVER… RECOMMENDED A BOOK WITHOUT READING IT FIRST.
Gemini Book Nook, The Bookish Kitten, CJR The Brit, Pretty Purple Polka Dots, and Lydia Schoch
