Top Ten Bookish Problems I Have
My TBR overfloweth.
I want to read ALL the books! I have so many to read and my TBR is ridiculous. My bookshelf is filled with 95% of books that I haven't even read.
My massive TBR leads to my next problem. I get overwhelmed, so I have trouble deciding what to read. Then, I end up NOT reading because I'm too crazed.
Yep. That's me. I spoil books for myself. I can't stand not knowing what's going to happen, who the main character will fall for, etc. In fact, I will enjoy the book much more just knowing. Otherwise the unknown eats me up inside and I can't just let it flow.
I can't read multiple books at one time. I also try not to start another book until my review is written. It's already a battle for me to keep everything straight, so I can't add more chaos to my bookish life.
I have a big problem finishing series. I don't do well with endings- knowing the series is going to be done and I won't spend time with those characters anymore. I get really sad so I tend not to finish them. I can't tell you how many unfinished series I haven't read!
People That Just Don't Understand.
Thank goodness I have my blogging friends. Without them, I think I would internally combust. I HAVE to talk about books. I love knowing what everyone's reading and fangirling with everyone else about a book that we all loved. I don't have many people in my life that actually read the books that I do, (save for my bestie who gets it!) so it makes me sad that most people don't care/understand/ about how important books are to me.
I've been ruined!
This is seriously a big issue. Being single, it's safe to say these fictitious book boyfriends have ruined me for real life dating. Who can compare to Jase from My Life Next Door or Cam from Wait For You? When I am swooning over these boys, I do my best to remember that it's usually a woman that wrote these and that these boys do not actually exist.
If I could save time in a bottle....
There are not enough hours in a day. Between all the real life things I have to do, I can't find time to completely give myself over to reading and blogging. I can't just sit and read for hours and hours either. I find myself getting restless and then later on I get upset because I didn't get enough read. It's a vicious cycle...
I love library books! There is nothing more satisfying than going to the library or getting books from the e-library. The problem? I never read them in time. I end up renewing them until I can't renew anymore. As for the elibrary, I'll download them for 2 weeks and then never get to them. Then I have to re-request them and usually have to wait for them to come available again. Sigh.
Romance is a must have.
Romance is a must have in all my books. Even if it's not a primary storyline, I still have to have it in my books. I've noticed if there's zero romance, I have a harder time reading the book. Maybe it's because I am having to live vicariously through these characters and their relationships....
