More Bookish Habits Revealed…

I have some book confessions for y’all and I hope you can share yours with me. Yay lets get to know each other. 

b5c05-blog-post-divider2b1

  1. I do judge a book by its cover. SORRY. I just appreciate a really nice cover and my eyes are drawn to them in shops etc. That being said, if I know what a book is about and I am well informed, I don’t mind what the cover looks like. I will give any book a chance but ascetically speaking, I judge book covers.  3.gif b5c05-blog-post-divider2b1
  2. I HATE when characters have stupid names in book or names that are hard to pronounce. When this happens…I either ignore the names while reading completely or the name pronunciation changes constantly. tumblr_m3uhpc4W6I1qha338o1_500.gif   b5c05-blog-post-divider2b1
  3. Sometimes I am awful at finishing series. I know I KNOW, I am sorry. I have the best intention…and I want to finish the series but sometimes life gets in the way and time flies past, thus resulting in me not reading them.  bgsp.gifb5c05-blog-post-divider2b1
  4.   I become attached to characters very quickly, especially if they are relatable. fall-in-love-at-bar.gif b5c05-blog-post-divider2b1
  5. I sometimes talk to my books in act of desperation for answers. WHHHYYYY….WHYYY would an author write such a heartbreaking narrative.  11.gif  b5c05-blog-post-divider2b1
  6. I have a very active face when I read, if you see me reading youll be able to know if I am enjoying it or not.

My weird (yet wonderful) bookish habits – Part Two.

Read part one here –

Here I discussed my impulse to talk to anyone reading a book, stifling a yawn with my book, hating on people who abuse books and my favourite reading location.

  1. Smelling books. New or Old I will give a book a cheeky little smell. Have you ever walked into a old vintage book shop and thought wow, it smells amazing. I wish they made candles in old book scent because I would burn that for daaayyyyssss. I always think old books smell well loved if that makes any sense at all. P.S. Early season Rory gives me life, she was a complete bookworm.giphy.gif
  2.  Leaving books scattered around the house. I am sooo guilty of this and it irritates my mum so much, she would always say she knew when I was back from university because she would just find books in random places. I need access to books at all times okay, what if something happened and I had to stay in that room…it would be okay because I would have a book with me.

Early somewhere?-read. Unhappy?- Read. Bored?- Read. Legit the other day I went to Bath for the day with my best friend and I thought I would be early to the station so I grabbed my trusty version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

4. Going on holiday and packing more books than clothes. THANK YOU KINDLE FOR MAKING MY LIFE EASIER NOW! When I use to visit my dad in Denmark over summer I would take like ten books for a week trip and SMASH them all. He would have to work somedays so I would just read in his apartment or walk to the park and read.  I still sometimes take physical copies of books with me but prefer to take my kindle nowadays because it is lighter and easier to carry. Although I prefer reading books over kindle books? what’s your thoughts on this matter?

5. Spending hours on end in libraries and bookshops.  Guilty again. I got spend an endless amount of time roaming the shelves in bookshops and libraries. Being surrounded by books fills me with a sense of comfort and belonging and I LOVE IT.

tumblr_o14lftvOZc1tzv1dpo1_500.gif 6. Talking about fictional characters as if they are real. I am a nightmare when it comes to this. They are real to me okay, they have touched my heart and now live in there. When I was going to my dissertation meetings my supervisor had to sit me down and advise me to stop writing and discussing the characters as if they were real. So…instead of writing Nick and Amy volitile relationship, I would have to write Flynn constructed the characters of Nick and Amy to give the illusion of a volatile relationship.Blah Blah Blah.

So here are six more reading habits of mine. Do you do the same? What do you think of mine?

 

 

WHAT I AM READING NEXT 📚

…drum roll please…. dun dun dun….I am going to read… Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland. 

I got this for my mum for her birthday but I’ve been eager to read it myself for ages. Did I slyly just buy it for myself for “for her” . Sorry Mum! 🙌🏻 

   

Excuse the messy bookshelf, I had to cram a lot of stuff on it while I am home for summer. (There are still like 8 boxes of books downstairs aswell 😂)

img_5524-11

  1. Did you have a dream last night? What happened?                                                                 Ummm…did I dream last night? ahhh yes, yes I did…I dreamt that I was Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. This is probably because I was reading it before bed…can’t blame a girl for dreaming about Mr.Darcy.

     

  2. Elephants or giraffes?                                                                                                                 Elephants…or both. I love both.
  3. Going to the cinema or having a movie night in?                                                                           Brooke…why have you asked the hardest questions. I spent ages deciding on elephants or giraffes…now this. I honestly like both. Sometimes I love staying in but if it’s a film i’ve been anticipating I have to see it asap.
  4. Indian or Chinese food?                                                                                                           Indian all the way.
  5. In the film Cars, do they have car insurance or life insurance?                                 What an interesting and thought provoking question…ummm probably life insurance. But, maybe their care insurance is just called life insurance.
  6. Sweet or savoury?                                                                                                                                       Savoury.
  7. Never be able to wash your clothes again or never be able to wash your bedding again? You can’t change or buy new ones either.                                            I know it would be gross to never wash your bedding but I guess your skin has direct contact with your clothes daily so i’d have to pick them.  Although never washing bedding makes me feel sick and gives me the hebejebes.
  8. What are the first 5 things you do when you wake up?                                                  Check my phone, wash my teeth, wash my face, think about what I am going to wear and eat breakfast (not always)
  9. What are the first 5 things you do before you fall asleep?                                           check my phone (am I addicted to my phone?) , think about what I am going to wear the next day, think about what I have to do, read and have a cup of peppermint tea.
  10. Do you go to the gym? How often?                                                                                             Honestly, and this is AWFUL…but I cannot remember the last time I went to the gym. I prefer to do exercise at home or outside. I am too poor for the gym right now.
  11. If you could create a law, what would it be?                                                                     Another thought provoking question. Ummm I would try and do something with the stigma around mental health.
