Top Ten Tuesday is from The Broke and The Bookish!
I don’t think I’ve been blogging long enough to have ten blogging confessions, but I’ll do my best! I’m going to add in some bookish confessions as well!
1. I have told very few about this venture. I can’t be bothered dealing with people asking why I would do such a thing and I think I’m still plagued by a fear that people will think I’m dull if they realise I’m such a bookworm. Then again, if people know me at all, they know exactly how bookish I am!
2. I have no idea what I’m doing. I can’t even work out how to use WordPress half the time!
3. I find myself getting stressed about finishing books quickly so I can review them! I’m trying not to let myself fall into that habit though!!
4. I get really frustrated when people interrupt my reading time, especially when it’s for petty things. It depends on how engrossed I am. I then turn apoplectic if I’m interrupted and then someone moves my book and loses my place!!! Especially if it’s deliberate…
5. I buy way more books than I am capable of reading. I have books on my shelf that have been there for years and years. I fully intend on reading them but just haven’t got around it it yet!
6. I hardly ever read hardbacks. They are expensive here and I find them way too bulky, but I am on a mission to own a beautiful hardback edition of all my favourite books!
7. I go through phases where I’ll read five books a week and then stop reading for a while. I think I burn myself out a bit and need time to recuperate.
8. I really like trashy romances, particularly if they involve supernatural creatures. It’s a problem.
9. I get really nervous about posting comments on other people’s blogs. I’m shy around new people and always worry that what I say is stupid, so I tend to say nothing at all. If I do comment, I’ve agonised over every word until I’ve re-written it five times!
10. I have a terrible fear of reading other people’s favourite books and hating them. I’ve done it before and it’s so hard! I know how I feel when other people dislike a book I loved, it’s like having someone say you are also terrible. We find so much of ourselves in our favourite books and to criticise them is to criticise a part of yourself.
