I’m back! It’s been a little minute, hasn’t it? Life has been nuts lately, with me starting grad school a couple weeks ago, and Steven starting too, but hopefully I can find some time to keep coming back and checking in.
I’ll chime in with Broke and Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday: bookish confessions. I have no shame.
*I am a book snob. I truly am. I generally don’t talk about books to people who aren’t hard core into reading, other than maybe to give a recommendation or share my opinion about a book. And if someone isn’t a reader, I automatically assume we will pretty much have nothing in common. And, dont EVER say “it’s just a book!” to me.
*Most of my friends know that I strongly dislike Twilight, but what they don’t know is that I devoured the books- I read all 4 books in 3 days.
*I love YA so much, but I sometimes reprimand myself harshly if I have not read an adult book in over a couple months.
*My biggest fictional character crush is Patch from the Hush, Hush series. I also really like Daniel in My Name is Memory.
*I have times where I think I have read too much. It bothers me when I can’t specifically remember the way a book plays out if I’ve read it, even if it has been years; especially if it has only been a few months.
*I am so anal about the condition of my books. If I loan it to someone, it better come back in the same shape it was in. I try really hard to stay calm, but I think people are afraid of me when it comes to books.
*I used to have a nook, but I sold it after a year. e-books just don’t cut it for me, I need the real thing.
*I hate books with movie covers.
*I don’t leave my house without a book.
*I have at least 30 books on my bookshelf that I have not read, but yet I compulsively go to the library. I just love the library.
*My mom read to me from before I was born until I was 14-15 years old, and I miss it. I will do the same for my child.
Do you share any of my confessions?
