My Bookish Habits and The Like

Top Ten Tuesdays1

This weeks topic is ten facts about you. Now I’m not really good with talking about myself, but here goes!

Sloth thy name is my reading pace:

I read really slowly. I have this insane need to think about almost every book that I read and I get lost sometimes in my thinking and BAM I’ve been reading the same book for days. It’s crazy and makes me super paranoid that I’ll fall behind because I can’t put the review output that some other bloggers have. But thus is my life as a slow reader.


Planning, fuck planning.


I say fuck planning in the saddest way possible. Like FUUUUCKKK, planning! I need planning but the simple matter of it is that I suck so hardcore at it. I know that I should be better at it but I’m constantly working on it!

Floppy floppy-ity flop


If I was to choose how I think that all books should be published it would be in floppy paperbacks. I absolutely love these types of books. I used to not be so picky but something about mass print paperbacks and hardcovers are so AWKWARD.


It’s all in the family, nor not

I don’t know where I got my love of reading because no one in my family loved to read as much as I did. I loved going to Barnes and Nobles as a kid and while I tried to find books my younger sister just followed me around. Probably why I hate people shadowing me while I shop. It’s fucking akward and annoying. You hear me younger siblings.



I am 100% possessive of my books and the quality that they stay in. Some people have the philosophy that “books are meant to be read” and while I agree it sets my teeth on edge. Maybe it was because growing up my prized possessions where my books. I didn’t buy clothes or makeup. Just books. So thinking about my books being ruined is on the top of the list for things to set me into a #nerdrage. One of the first things my children learned was don’t touch mommy’s books.


Bubble, Bubble, toil in trouble


Despite my infliction about my books I love reading in the tub. Recently, I’ve become obsessed with matching the smell of my bath with bath bombs to the book that I’m currently reading.


Green is a nasty color, but I wear it SO WELL!


I am 100% envious of all the bloggers that have countless hours to devote towards reading. I remember being one but then I had to fuck it up and join the Army and then have babies. I’m not saying that these bloggers don’t have lives but there isn’t anything worse to a bookworm than being interrupted and for the last five years of my life it’s been a loop of interuptions. Worst interruption while reading: poopy diapers!


Another man’s trash is another’s treasure

There is a popular author who I do not click with their writing style. I’ve come to the conclusion that this is the reason I do not like either of their INSANELY popular book series. I’ve read *sort of similar* series and LOVED them. Black Sheep Unite!


A Little Magic, A Little History


My two favorite genres are fantasy and historical fiction. When you get books that combine that with maybe a bit of alternate history I cannot handle my fangirling. I’m absolutely excited about these books!


A Home is where your Bookcases Are

My dream is to own a house that has a dedicated library room. Currently I live in a small house and there isn’t really room for my books (no matter what my husband wants me to believe) and it makes me very sad. I want a place to go and unwind. A Book Cave.


Bonus Round



Mini Bookworms

My biggest wish for my children (other than growing up to be happy an successful) is for them to love books as much as I do.  They might not be able to travel around the world so the best that I can do is give them the opportunity to see other places through their imagination. This is extremely important to me. I don’t want do this for my own kids but all the kids I meet. This is why I’m getting my masters in Library Science with a specialty of becoming a school librarian.
