Top Ten Tuesday (79)

This week's topic is top ten book related problems.

1. My biggest book related problem will always be that I feel like my TBR pile is crushing me.  Like, always in my sightline, "You'll never catch up, you'll never beat me" a la Paris from Gilmore Girls.

2. When you don't know a book is part of a series until you finish it.  Honestly, if I had known you were going to be a series I probably wouldn't have read you at least until your second book was out.

3.  I have this weird thing where I won't read certain topics or genres until a specific season.  Like if a book takes place at the beach, I try to hold off until summer.  A lot of times I try to save fantasy until the fall/winter.  I try to break out of it, but it's a big mental hurdle.  This is just me annoying myself.

4. This is becoming a bookish confessions post, but oh well, you guys don't mind, do you?  I am terrible at returning library books on time.  I am more likely to read the book the first couple of days after I get it and then wind up having to renew it the allotted 2 times just so I'm not fined.  I am the literal worst.

5. I like to read/reread books that are becoming movies close to when I see the movie.  The problem comes when I'm ultimately disappointed in the movie because the book is so fresh in my mind.  

What bookish problems plague you guys?


  1. I totally understand about the series thing. I have started a book and when I learned it was part of a series I stopped because my goal of the year is to complete unfinished series not start new ones. Great list!

  2. Nice list of book related problems!! Here's a link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-related.html
