Let’s kick this challenge off and get some things off our chests. Friends, I have some bookish quirks and habits and secrets and literally cannot wait to share them with you all, also I can’t wait to learn about your bookish confessions in return. This post is part of a 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge that I started because I was feeling burnt out and then inspired. Check out the challenge here.
Day 1: Make 15 book-related confessions.
- I always fall for the nice guy character. ALWAYS. I cannot abide a douchebag.
- My eyes usually dart to covers with interesting typography.
- I used to think romance novels were stupid until I started reading Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. I then ended up trying them because of Angieville and The Allure Of Books.
- I constantly experience TBR guilt.
- I never loathed my piles and piles of books until I moved. Lugging heavy boxes is a giant pain in the ass, my friends.
- I love expanding my horizons, so it makes me sad when people write off genres like non-fiction or adult books or classics. Just like with YA, there is good and bad. I think that people should give these books more of a shot before they say, oh that’s boring.
- I am SUCH a character girl, it’s not even funny. In order for me to love a fictional book, I have to really relate to the character OR find the character enthralling and interesting.
- I am incredibly anal retentive about my series books. I hate it when a series starts in paperback then the new books come out in hard cover. Like no, pick a freakin format and stick with it.
- I used to find ebooks inferior, but now I am all about culling and replacing physical books with ebooks.
- Whenever I visit other people’s homes, I totally eye their bookshelves and sometimes get a little judgmental, then I remember that whole judge not lest ye be judged saying. I mean, hey, at least those people own books.
- I like middle grade covers better than YA covers.
- When I think of all the books I will never read, I get sad.
- Magic > science. Always.
- I always think I dislike a genre until I read a REALLY good book from the genre. Like, science fiction. Or non-fiction. Or thrillers. Or mysteries. Basically I need to stop being so judgmental. And yes, I know I just contradicted myself with number 6.
- I actually am totally not one of those ‘the book was better than the movie’ people. I really like both mediums, but in different ways and so I don’t go in with a lot of expectations to movies. It has greatly enhanced my enjoyment.
Do you do any of these things?
