Last week I started a two part post talking about problems only other book worms would understand. I wanted to do it all in one post but narrowing it down to 5 was impossible. Last week was PART ONE and here is part two!
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in doing my topic on your blog feel free! Also you can use this graphic, just link my site
JUST ONE MORE CHAPTER SYNDROME
I am seriously the worst with this! If I know that I should be going to bed at 11:00 I will keep repeating “just one more chapter” until it’s about 12:30. I literally do it every day. That’s probably why I’m so freaking tired every day! Which brings me to my next bookworm problem….
READING UNTIL 3AM AND STILL HAVING TO ADULT THE NEXT DAY
This one is rare for me. I push my limits every night with the just one one chapter mantra, but for me to push it hours past my bed time is rare. But sometimes you find that one book that pulls you in so far you lose all track of time. You HAVE to know what happens right this second and your life will remain on hold until that happens. If the book was great them I’m still on an adrenaline rush from its amazing-ness, so the next day is bearable. But if the book is bad then the next day feels like torture! It’s almost time for the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin so I have a feeling this particular problem will be happing soon!
ORDERING A BOOK ONLINE AND HAVING TO WAIT FOR IT TO COME IN
Due to the fact that I live in a small town and we don’t have a book store, I do most of my shopping online. Also online prices are much cheaper. Cheaper prices means more books for my money! But when a book is released on a certain day and I have to wait for it to be mailed to me – I become an obsessive monster. I refresh the tracking number numerous times a day, knowing full well that it hasn’t moved. I follow reviews from those that actually got their book on time. And I may have stalked the mail man a few times…. in fact he expects it. Our mail man is a friend of ours and knows my lack of patience!
FINDING THE BOOK YOU’RE DYING TO READ BUT IT’S ONLY IN THE MOVIE COVER EDITION
This aggravates me to no end! I’m happy that the book is being turned into a movie – I really am. But as a book lover I need to keep the two separate. 99% of the time the movie never lives up to the book so I don’t need to be reminded of that fact. I want to read the book because of the book – not because it was turned into a movie!
READING THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES BUT HAVING TO WAIT A YEAR FOR THE NEXT ONE TO BE RELEASED
This one is entirely selfish. I know that books can’t be written overnight but that doesn’t change the fact that I need to know what happens!! The other problem is that I read so many books throughout that year that I sometimes forget what happened. So when the book is finally released it takes me a while to get back into the story. I also hate it when I read the first book in a series but you’re too broke to buy book two! It’s so close but it’s so far away!
That’s is for the Bookworm Problems series…. for now. I’m sure I can think of more! Do you have anything that you would add to this list?
If you want to participate in future Top 5 Tuesday topics, here is a list of my upcoming topics including the dates. I can’t wait to see some different answers!!
Until next time, happy reading!
