15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Day 1

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.

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Good Books And Good Wine

Day 1: Make 15 book-related confessions.

  1. I always fall for the nice guy character. ALWAYS. I cannot abide a douchebag.
  2. My eyes usually dart to covers with interesting typography.
  3. 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.
  4. I constantly experience TBR guilt.
  5. I never loathed my piles and piles of books until I moved. Lugging heavy boxes is a giant pain in the ass, my friends.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I used to find ebooks inferior, but now I am all about culling and replacing physical books with ebooks.
  10. 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.
  11. I like middle grade covers better than YA covers.
  12. When I think of all the books I will never read, I get sad.
  13. Magic > science. Always.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?

  • Thanks for starting this! I just started today. Number 4 & 5 are similar to what I have on mine. Als0 #10 about checking out other’s books.

  • I am a fail and wasn’t able to participate in this challenge! I’m enjoying everyone’s responses though, so you did an awesome thing starting this. As for your quirks, we share a lot of the same ones! The one that stands out in particular, though, is magic > science! That’s definitely how I feel too ;)

  • I agree with most of your confessions, especially the part about being open-minded! Thanks for hosting this challenge!

  • I completely agree with your #15 so I’m the same way. They’re two different forms of entertainment, and I’ve found it ridiculous to get as furious as some fans do about book to movie adaptations. Don’t like the way a film turns out in comparison to a book you liked? Simple. You don’t have to watch it again. :) Go back and re-read the book and cherish the characters/story as you want to enjoy it for yourself. That’s what I’ve learned to do through the years. No biggie. :)

    Anyways, loved your list. And this is a fantastic and fun idea. I’m jumping in a little late since I only just recently heard about it from a friend–but better late than never! It’ll be fun participating in the challenge over at my own blog and I look forward to seeing the answers for the challenges as I get to them each day from others.

    Have a great week! :)


  • 1. Every so often I am all about the douchier one but usually not. The Darkling in Siege & Storm was an exception, but mostly because I think Mal is a douche too and just hides it better. I’ll take an honest douche over a dishonest one any day. Lol. Or sometimes the nice guy is boring as fuck, though, in those cases, I generally hate the book and fall for neither.

    4. If carrying boxes resulted in ass pain, maybe you were doing in wrong. :-p

    6. Yay! I love bloggers that review lots of different kinds of books. I mean, YA only is cool or whatever genre only, but I like learning about things I might not have read on my own devices, and I learn about more books from people who read widely than people who are genre-specific.

    7. THIS. If neither of those things are true, the writing can be perfect, the plot amazing, and world building on point, and I will be so fucking bored.

    8. I don’t care about format much because I buy most of my books used, so I can’t be that picky about format.

    10. I judge when people have bookshelves in their homes and they are EMPTY. Like, you have awesome bookshelves and put like random crap on them. My heart dies inside.

    11. I am coming to feel this way too. How freaking adorable and clever are they?

    12. OMG, yes, this haunts me. The fact that I will die before I read all the books I own and all the books I want to read.

    13. Agreed. I like science fiction, but fantasy will always win for me.

    14. True. Though with things like mystery and non-fiction, I’m still convinced that it’s MOSTLY not for me, but that particular books can be amazing.

    15. I’m sometimes this person. It just depends.
