Hey Book Lovers!
Hope you are all ok. Today I wanted to come at you with a fun type of post entitled ‘Lies Book Bloggers Say!’ I guarantee you are all guilty of these if not all of them then at least one or two.
I’m sure this is the one were all guilty of. It’s one in the morning, you have to get up early for work, school or university but you tell yourself you can fit in one more chapter and still get enough sleep right?
Book Buying Bans in general. Show me someone who has successfully completed a book buying ban? They are witches I tell you. HOW?! I try so hard but I cannot resist buying a new book. I know my TBR is high, I know I won’t read it immediately but it’s waving at me and telling me to take it home.
I hold my hands up (in the air sometimes… you definitely all started singing that song) I am naughty and have done this, once, twice. Ok more.
If i’m in the middle of a good lead up to a mega scene then I can’t just leave it for another day can I?!
Yes I know I didn’t really like the book, but what if I want to give it another go in the future? Do I really want to have to buy it again? No. I’ll keep it.. I mean if I don’t read it then someone else might want to like my sister… I’ll keep it for her in my collection rather than hers…
Yes TBR pile, I see you growing in the corner of my room. I will start you I promise but also what about this new release for the series I am mid way through? I can’t just give up now on that can I? Oh look i’ve started the first book in the series I have to finish that now as well don’t I?
To give myself credit, I wrote down all the books I owned which I haven’t read a few months ago and i’m actually tackling the giant pile…
OF COURSE I NEED IT.
It’s the same book inside. Yes but it’s a different cover and is it really the same book because this special edition also has a deleted scene or an extra little story or snippet in the front or back so it’s technically different? So I should have it shouldn’t I?
Yes i’m side eyeing you up Harry Potter, you do this to me. Seeing as I now have 4 different copies of Philosophers Stone and don’t you even think about hiding City of Bones. You know you’re the same. Yes brain I know emmmabooks also does this, were both weak… hold on.. maybe I could buy another one so were at least on the same amount right?
I have so many books I need to read this month and get the reviews up by so i’m going to read them in this order and also I need to tackle that TBR so I will put a few on the list as well. Nope. Not for me, I will actually write that list and completely ignore it and pick up some other books.
There are just so many descriptions and cover’s drawing me in. I think there is no in-between to a Net-galley visit. You either request loads or none.
Every few months I think ‘I could read Harry Potter again’ like I have all the time in the world and don’t have a giant TBR staring at me like ‘why did you buy us.’ What can I say, Hogwarts is my home.
So there we have some Lies Book Bloggers and Book Lovers tell themselves. What is one your guilty of? Let me know in the comments below!
