Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic is our top book blogging confessions – so get ready to learn a little more about me and my reading habits this week!
1. I love Game of Thrones the TV series, but I just couldn’t get through the books even though I love fantasy. Just couldn’t do it.
One of my favorite TV shows mentioning another one? Yes.
2. I’ll admit it: I originally started blogging so I could get free books to review. Now I love chatting with the community about books we love, but it was a pretty mercenary beginning.
Books. Now. Thank you.
3. I read mostly ebooks. I love actual books but I just don’t have enough room in my home, or my purse, to store and carry as many books as I need at any given time. In fact, if I had physical copies of all the books I read, I’d probably have to start replacing furniture with books, like this:
4. I haven’t been in a physical library in a few years because I just get ebooks and audio books online from the library website! It’s sad actually – I miss the library.
5. Until recently, I would read the ending of every book I picked up first to make sure it sounded good. I’m not as bad anymore, but only because of extreme self control. I still give into the urge to check out the ending first once in awhile…
6. I dog ear and break the spines of books because it’s more comfortable to read them that way. They look well-loved. I get annoyed when people lend me books and say not to do either of these things – I don’t really want to borrow their books after that.
For those of you that really, really care about this.
7. I think hardcovers are silly. Maybe for my favorite books of all time, but honestly I’d still prefer the paperback or ebook! Hardcovers are too bulky and heavy, and prevent me from being able to fold over the covers.
8. Some people are very picky about the covers of their series matching, but I’m just not that way. My Harry Potter series is even worse than normal because I was given the first book as a gift in paperback, but bought the others as soon as they came out so they are hardcovers. I never bought the first in hardcover to match them up… Oh well!
My HP set does not look as nice as this one…
9. Sometimes I don’t buy books in bookstores just because I’m worried about being judged for my reading habits or hearing snarky comments by cashiers about my book choices. But at least I don’t go into bookstores dressed like this:
10. On a similar note, I only recently told my friends and family about my blog because I wasn’t sure what they’d think. I was also hesitant to admit hat I read mostly sci-fi, fantasy, and young adult fiction, and not more serious “adult fiction” or classics. But everyone seems to think it’s cool, so I’m glad I finally shared!
