I wrote my answers to this tag a few days ago, however only just realised now that I have not posted it – and as this is a Christmas-related tag, I figured this would be my last chance to do so before next year. Thank you so much to Emily, blogger at Always Opinionated Girl, for tagging me to do this – you can read her own post here! In this tag, I will be confessing whether I have committed any of these ‘bookish sins’ to determine whether I have been naughty or nice this year!

If I have done the last one, an full review on my blog follows after, and I then paste a preview of that review into GoodReads. Whichever option I choose much depends on the genre of the book, when it was published, and how strong my feelings about it were.
