Hello dear readers, I come to you with another Top 5 Tuesday list, this time all about some bookish habits that I have. Top 5 Tuesdays are hosted over at Bionic Book Worm, and you definitely need to check out her blog if you love books.
Some habits are probably things that a lot of book readers do, and some might be more specific to me.
Bringing my Book EVERYWHERE
Almost everywhere I go, I have a book with me. Whether it’s to work, hanging out with friends, or even waiting on the elevator on the way to take my dog for a walk I have a book with me. Short bursts of reading actually gets a lot done if you do it often enough.
Multiple Books on the go
I have gotten much better at this in the last few years, but I tend to have two or three books and a manga or two going on at the same time. Usually they’re of different genres, but I usually jump back and forth now and then to keep things interesting.
Bad Book Buying Habits
I think all book lovers can appreciate this one, but if you leave me alone in a book store, I ALWAYS come out with a book or two. I’ve actually had my girlfriend drag me out of the store to prevent me from buying something.
I like to see the progress that I make when I am reading, so I like to have two bookmarks in my books. The first is where I started at the beginning of the day, or week and the second is where I am currently. It’s nice seeing big chunks of the book being finished a time.
You can’t spoil a book for me more than I do myself. As soon as I am hooked, I am searching on the internet for what comes next, what happens to the characters in the end, who gets what sort of magical powers. That doesn’t ruin the story for me either, because it is the adventure that we go on that I really enjoy.
What are some of your bookish habits? I know we probably share one or two, but I want to hear about what weird things you might do when it comes to books. Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
Hello ladies and gentlefolk, welcome to yet another Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by the one and only, Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic is five books that exceeded my expectations.
If you don’t already, please check Bionic Book Worm for some terrific Top 5 Tuesday ideas, and posts in general.
Fault in Our Stars
Like I mentioned in the review, The Fault in our Stars really blew me away on how it hit my soul. I did not expect it to connect with me or make me feel the way it did.
Bullets, Teeth & Fists 3
I had never really opened a gory book, or at least one that was gory for the sake of gore, but when I opened up BT&F, I was blown away that I didn’t hate it. I enjoyed reading it, and didn’t find it out of place at all. It has definitely made me want to read the first two.
Wheel of Time
Before WoT, the longest fantasy series I had ever read was probably Harry Potter, and that was nowhere near as intense. WoT opened my eyes to what a fantasy world could really be, and I’d probably say it opened the gateway to my true love of fantasy books.
There have been three books released in this series so far, and all three have literally made me cheer out loud in public places. They are truly brilliant pieces of literature, and I am checking at least once a week on when the next one will come out.
Devil in the White City
To be honest this book is probably the one that blew my mind the most. I wasn’t cheering or jumping up and down in excitement, but I was definitely hooked. I didn’t think I’d be more interested in the story of an architect more than the story of a serial killer.
What are some books that blew your mind, you know there’s at least a few! Let’s talk about them in the comments or on social media! Goodreads | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
