Never have I ever… read a later book in the series before reading the first book.
I do this, but only if they can be read as standalones!  I do it with detective series like the Prey or Cross books all the time, but books in true series… Very rarely.

Never have I ever… burned a book.
I have really wanted to, but never burned a book 😂

Never have I ever… read a book I knew I would hate.
I have for review purposes, although I have learned how to say no and pick and choose more carefully now!

Never have I ever… written a fanfiction about my favorite books.
Never! I don’t like reading fanfic and have never written any

Never have I ever… loved a book when I was young, yet hated it when I got older.
I used to read weird books like The Celestine Prophecies and beat generation writers, now I don’t love those or speculative fiction so much.  My taste in fantasy is pretty much the same though!

Never have I ever… dressed up like one of my favorite literary characters.

I have been Harry Potter and Karigan Gladheon for Halloween before😂

Never have I ever… hated a book by an author I loved.
I have HATED the past two Green Rider books, which kills me because the first four books are my entire life

Never have I ever… gone into a bookstore to buy one book and came out with many more.
Not so much new books but I have been known to stack up at discount and used places

Never have I ever… read the end of a book before reading the beginning.
Only skip to the end when I start getting bored with thrillers or suspense 😂 not before I start though

Never have I ever… read the book without the dust jacket.
All the time, gotta keep it safe! Put it back on afterwards!!

Never have I ever… skim read half the book.
At that point I’ll just DNF, life is too short

Never have I ever… seen the movie before reading the book.
I have, many times. Sometimes I don’t even realize a movie has a book, most recently Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Never have I ever… had a book boyfriend.
I latched onto Yates from Green Rider,and will NEVER forgive Britain for that.  Also Sevro from the Red Rising books. Also who didn’t want to just hug, then fight besides HP?

Never have I ever… read a history book or a biography for fun.
Oh boy, yeah I read a lot of U S. history for fun

Never have I ever… picked up a book based on the cover alone.
Yes but I DO confirm the synopsis as readable first 😂

Never have I ever… bought multiple books in a series without having started it.
Yes but only because I like to have the first few ready before I start a new series

Never have I ever… kept reading a series even if I didn’t love the first book.
This is happening to me right now, but holy cow is The Great Hunt about a thousand times a better book than The Eye of the World. I’ll keep going until hopefully Sanderson doesn’t destroy it

Never have I ever… kept buying books even though my bookshelves are full of unread books.
Guilty, although right now I’m only buying new books to complete series that I’m waiting on.  99% of new titles are like… Blah right now.

Never have I ever… bought/read a book because of a booktuber/book blogger.
Not booktube but I have a few trusted bookstagrammers that I’ll take recs from!

 Never have I ever… ruined a book for a book blog post, bookstagram picture, or booktube video.
I’ve accidentally dropped a few that resulted in grass smears and once, water damage 😭

Alright seeing as I don’t blog with many people, if you see this you’re tagged 😂
