Hello and happy Monday!
There are so many “problems” us bookworms face on a daily basis, I thought I’d share a few of my own. And to make it a bit more fun, I’ve added plenty of GIFs for your enjoyment.
When an adaptation gets everything wrong
Don’t you just hate it when that happens? You’ve been looking forward to seeing your favourite book turned into a TV show/ movie only to find out they completely messed it up.
The endless TBR
Look at all these books I
want toneed to read! Seriously. It starts out fine with just a couple of books, but before you know it, that pile keeps growing and growing until you’re buried underneath. Okay, you probably don’t have your entire TBR in physical form (mine is just a list) but you get my point.
Finishing a book and not wanting to go back to the real world
Admit it. We all wish we could stay at Hogwarts or live in Narnia until the end of days. The real world just kind of sucks in comparison, doesn’t it?
Fighting the need to buy all the books
Happens every time we walk into a book store. Collector’s items and special editions are the worst. I really really want to buy the Harry Potter anniversary ones (the ones that feature the individual house crest on the jacket and have line illustrations exclusive to your house!!) but I really really shouldn’t.
When you have to stop reading because…life
At some point you have to stop reading to eat, sleep, go to work … and it’s the absolute worst. Who else wishes they could stop time so they could keep reading?
Other people: “Reading is so boring / stupid / for nerds / etc.”
Don’t. Just don’t.
When your ARC request is denied
I know we’re all very lucky to be able to get ARC’s in the first place, but we can’t help but feel disappointed when a particular ARC we really really wanted is denied.
When your favourite character dies and you read on, but it’s just not the same
I always need a moment to grieve my baby before I can even think of moving on.
When the sequel is still months away and you’re trying to be patient
I imagine this is what George R.R. Martin’s fans feel like at this point.
When your favourite author releases a new book
This is me when I found out John Green’s new book is going to be released on October, 10. Of 2017! Even though I knew he was writing again for a while now, it completely took me by surprise. It’s the best kind of surprise though. I’m so excited to read new material from him after 5 years.
Can you relate to my struggles? What other things do you struggle with as a book lover? Let me know in the comments!
