Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit


Bookish things I want to quit....

*  Finishing a book if I hate it.  If I'm not feeling it that's it!

*  Love triangles.  I kind of love and hate these. If done right they can be really good but in every series?  Not so much.

*  Cliff hanger endings.  The only way to avoid this is to wait for the whole series to be published.

*  A year long wait between books.  Honestly I am starting to hate this.  I guess it ties into the cliff hanger endings bit but knowing there is such a long wait between the books just makes me want to wait for them all to be published!

*  Buying ALL the books of a series before I read it!  I need to at least read book one first to see if I like it!

*  Carrying on with a series when it should have finished about 5 books earlier.  Or a series that I've stopped caring about.  Why bother?

*  Buying more books than I can read. (I think I'm kidding myself with this one lol)

*  Collecting bookmarks.  I have this addiction for them but I never use one.  What is that about?

*  Keeping every single book.  Even ones I didn't particularly like.  I have no more room!  Seriously books are everywhere!  I have to keep only those I know I'll read again in the future!  And maybe those with really nice covers...

*  Buying /keeping books because I love the cover.  Really ridiculous but I do it all the time!

*  Re-buying books because the publishers change the cover mid way through a series (this is sooooooo annoying - why?  WHY DO THEY DO IT!!!!) But I need to live with it and not waste my money.  I can do it.... maybe....

So that's my list..  What about you?  Let me know in the comments below.

I feel like there are a lot of people that force themselves to finish books they don't like. I just feel like that's unhealthy. Life's too short to waste it on things you're not enjoying. :P

Hahaha, I love your last one cause that is so absolutely me! Sometimes, if the cover to the original book isn't just fantastic, I am willing to part with it if one of my book club girls want it. But more often than not, I end up keeping both copies! Why? It makes no sense to me! And if I really love a series, I start to collect all of the different cover editions they have! It's a sickness :p

Ha! This made me chuckle.
One of mine is not judging a book by the cover! If they came in brown paper, I'd be fine 😉
