Never Have I Ever…read a later book in a series before reading the first book
I haven’t done this, mostly because the series I have read wouldn’t allow for this and I would prefer to go in order either way.
Never Have I Ever…burned a book
I wanted to burn my ninth grade math textbook in high school, but of course I didn’t go through with it, so this is true.
Never Have I Ever…read a book I knew I would hate
This one is also true. I prefer to read books that I think I’ll enjoy!
Never Have I Ever…wrote a fanfiction about my favorite books
I was very much into tumblr circa the early 2010’s so I know what fanfiction is, but I’ve never read it or written it.
Never Have I Ever…loved a book when I was young and hated it when I got older
I haven’t re-read any books from when I was younger, probably because I don’t want to ruin them. If I were to re-read Twilight I would probably hate it now (no offence to any Twilight fans).
Never Have I Ever…dressed up as one of my favorite literary characters
I haven’t, but that would be fun! I love Halloween but my costumes are always so low effort sadly.
Never Have I Ever…hated a book by an author I love
I can’t say I have. I was really disappointed once, but hate is a strong word.
Never Have I Ever…gone into a bookstore to buy one book and come out with many more
I have, but who isn’t guilty of this? My worst offence was when I went in to browse and left with three.
Never Have I Ever…read the end of a book before reading the beginning
I’m not positive, but I think I did this when I read the Pretty Little Liars series. If I remember correctly, “A” would leave a note at the end of the book and I couldn’t wait till the end to read it.
Never Have I Ever…read a book without the dust cover
I usually only buy paperback books. If I get a hardcover from the library I can’t take the dust jacket off, but I like peaking at what it looks like.
**Wait, I own the Divergent series in hardcover. I just took the dust jackets off and the second book looks pristine but the other two don’t. I’m even more confused now because I can’t remember taking them off.
Never Have I Ever…skim-read nearly half the book
Technically never. If I was behind on a book I had to read for school or I didn’t like it too much, I would skim a bit, but I felt SO guilty. When it comes to fiction I wouldn’t be able to skim a book I’m enjoying, I need to read every word.
Never Have I Ever…pretended to have read a book that I haven’t
I haven’t had a reason to and also I’d be too scared to get caught in the lie!
Never Have I Ever…seen the movie before reading the book
As far as I can remember, I haven’t. I usually read the book first.
Never Have I Ever…had a book boyfriend
Yes, no, maybe? I wish that the good boyfriends I read about in books existed in real life…
Never Have I Ever…read a history book or anthropology book for fun
I read a book about the history of heart science, if that counts? Otherwise, I can’t think of anything.
Never Have I Ever…picked up a book based on the cover alone
I have, especially before my book blogging days when I wasn’t in the loop about new releases or anything like that. But, the synopsis still had to interest me before I decided to read it.
Never Have I Ever…bought multiple books in a series without having started it
I mostly read standalones so I haven’t done this and can’t see myself doing it either.
Never Have I Ever… kept reading a series even if I didn’t love the first book
Surprisingly, this is true.
Never Have I Ever…read a book so quickly that I don’t remember what happened by the end
This sounds like a very Gemini thing to do. I haven’t read so quickly that I already can’t remember a book by the end, but maybe within a week. I try my best to avoid this though!
Never Have I Ever… recommended a book I haven’t read
I won’t push a book I haven’t read, but if suggesting books from my TBR counts, then I have.
