A Reader’s Confession

A Reader's Confession - Banner

Hello, bookish people!

Today, I am gonna spew out the words that I’d like to say about myself. Well, it’s a weird thing I’ve been doing as a reader. I am not sure if any of you do this too or if you have a different kind of weirdness that you think you are doing that most bookworms won’t do.

So, here is the list that I’d like to confess:

  • If I’m really looking forward to a book, I will definitely read the last page or chapter to know what will happen in the story! I know. I know. I should not do it to avoid ruining the fun of discovering what will happen in it but, I can’t stop myself from doing so or else I’m going crazy in anticipation.
  • If the synopsis of the book sounds cliché, I will most likely not read it. I like to read something that will intrigue me or excites me. If I didn’t like the summary on its back, then it’s a no.
  • Before reading a book from a new author, I read the negative reviews about it. But, it won’t affect me from reading the book anyway. It’s just that I only want to know why they give it a low rating.
  • I have a love-hate relationship with cliffhangers. They sometimes kill me, but I also like it.
  • Hyped books sometimes don’t go into my READ-ASAP-TBR list. Well, it is because it makes me lose interest in it if a lot of people talks about it before I even got the chance to know what the book is all about. Same with the movies. But, after some years, I will read it if the hyped was gone.
  • I love spoilers. Don’t hate me for this but spoiling me will make me read the book more than not knowing if the plot is good or not.
  • I do judge the book by their covers. I love pretty covers, and it is one of my preferences in finding a book to buy and read when I’m in a bookstore. Of course, I still read a book even if the covers are not that enticing in my eyes.
  • I’m very OC in my books! I hate seeing any dirt, marks, or even folds in it! I treat them like my baby. But, I love to share them too so if you are going to borrow my babies, make sure to be careful in handling them. Or else.
  • I hate sad endings. I just can’t take it! Please, don’t recommend to me a book with a heart-wrenching story!
  • When reading, sometimes, I skipped some lines and go over the dialogue of the characters. Then after that, I’ll go back to where I skipped on. But I talked about not doing this anymore here: Why You Should Not Skip Ahead in a Book.
  • I smell my books! I know this is very common among us.

And I think that is all I want to confess to you! Thank you for reading!
