10 Problems All Bookworms Will Understand ft. all the GIFs

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.

  1. 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.

  2. The endless TBR

    giphy (5)
    Look at all these books I want toΒ need 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. When you have to stop reading because…life

    giphy-downsized (2)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?

  6. Other people: “Reading is so boring / stupid / for nerds / etc.”

    giphy-downsized (3).gif
    Don’t. Just don’t.

  7. When your ARC request is denied

    giphy-downsized (4)
    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.

  8. When your favourite character dies and you read on, but it’s just not the same

    giphy-downsized (5)
    I always need a moment to grieve my baby before I can even think of moving on.

  9. When the sequelΒ is still months away and you’re trying to be patient

    giphy-downsized (6).gif
    I imagine this is what George R.R. Martin’s fans feel like at this point.

  10. When your favourite author releases a new book

    giphy (2)
    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!

  1. HAHAHA I’M USING THE FIRST GIF IN A POST OF MINE. Okay so I don’t know why I felt the need to tell you that??? Ahem.

    Also the Belle gif always tricks me because I assume the shelf is longer???

    I RELATE SO BAD. Especially about the sequel one… and when the sequel is OUT but you can’t GET IT because you’re BROKE. And also, waiting for your OTPs is the worst omg. Love this post, Lauren!!! ❀

    • It’s such a classic GIF that never gets old. You should definitely use it πŸ˜€

      OMG, I never even noticed that! That’s so strange. Then again, it’s Disney. I’m pretty sure it’s also impossible to do that with a ladder, but oh well xD

      Ah yes, the money issue. I think we all struggle with that one, lol.

      Thank you, May! ❀

  2. OH YES, I am so, so excited to read John Green’s new book, and that Chandler gif is on point – it was me, exactly, when I found out the news! I can’t wait.
    I’m so sad whenever the movie adaptation just gets everything wrong about the book :/ I used to be excited everytime I learned about movie adaptations, but now I’m just nervous all.the.time. that they’ll just mess things up :/
    Such a great post, Lauren! ❀

    • Yes! John Green fans unite! πŸ˜„

      So true. I’m nervous now too, thinking “please don’t mess this up” all the time. The Simon vs. movie is a great example of that.

      Thank you, Marie! Glad you enjoyed it ❀️

      • I feel like John Green isn’t that popular in the blogging community, which makes me a bit sad? I’m really, REALLY happy you love him too πŸ˜€ ❀
        OH yes – I am so excited for the Simon vs. movie (love the main actor already) but…I'm too nervous ahha.

      • It makes me sad, too! Sometimes I think people don’t like him because it’s “popular” not to like him, but I also understand the criticism he’s gotten (i.e. his characters are all priviliged white people, stories are all the same, …) Having said that, I hope the blogging community gives him another chance. It’s been 5 years, so who knows what his new book will be like? Either way, I’m excited and I’m not ashamed to say he’s one of my favourite authors. And I’m happy I’ve found someone who loves him too πŸ™‚ ❀

        Me too! The casting looks on point. But, yep, I'm pretty nervous too πŸ˜€ I hope they don't screw this up because I really loved the book

      • Same here. I really hope that this new book will bring him into a new light and that the blogging community will be a bit less harsh on him. He’s a great author but also overall an amazing person! ❀
        I hope they won't! Well, we still have months and months to freak out about it all before we see the movie πŸ˜›

      • I think so too! I mean, he’s going to sign 200.000 (!!!) sheets of paper that will go into his new book. He did the same for The Fault in Our Stars and I think that’s pretty amazing ❀️

        PS: Do you watch Vlogbrothers or listen to his podcast by any chance?

      • I SAW THAT and I am forever amazed. Also – do you happen to know where these signed copies will be? I’m kind of dying to get one ahah πŸ˜›
        Yes, I do! I watch all of their videos – well, I miss one or two here and there but watch lots of them – and listen to the podcast, but only occasionally πŸ˜€

      • In his new video, John said they’re only going to be available in the US & Canada πŸ˜”
        Me too! I watch most of them and I’m a regular listener of the pod. I think he and his brother are hilarious together πŸ˜„

      • Oh no πŸ˜”πŸ˜” It’s always like that πŸ˜”
        YES! They are SO hilarious, never fail at making me smile whenever I need it ! πŸ™‚
