Book Worm Problems


I'm bored... and by that I mean I had some dental work done today and my mouth hurts so I can't focus on writing so I'm looking for a distraction... so I thought let's write a blog post complaining about something, he he. #BookwormProblems are some serious problems. They shouldn't be underestimated.


1. My Bookcase is TOO Small...

I recently moved house and for the first three months all my books were hidden away in boxes until a quick trip to #Ikea and a screwdriver/ hammer #DIY moment from hell later and I have a #bookcase. Except I had to buy extra shelves to go inside the bookcase because it was too small even though it's not small at all. And even then it wasn't big enough to house all my books, let alone all the books I plan to buy in the near future. I will unfortunately be repeating the Ikea trip and DIY exercise again in the near future.


2. #Paperbacks, #Ebooks & #Audio #Books...

There are too many damn choices. This is actually a good thing. Except when I can't make my mind up. I want paperbacks for my bookshelves and ebooks for my devices and audio books are essential for when I'm walking. I want them all. Plus can someone explain to me why we pay tax on ebooks and not paperbacks? I know it's the whole ebooks are a luxury or something... but isn't that just silly? Paperbacks are more expensive and use paper - hello, trees? Shouldn't we be taxed because of the trees. Ebooks should be tax exempt instead... logically... At least that's what I think.


3. People who ask what my fav. book is...

I ask this question all the time so I'm clearly a hypocrite but seriously... how are you supposed to answer that? The list is endless!!!! Harry Potter, North & South, Little Women, Artemis Fowl, The Hunger Games, Twilight, to name just a few of my favs. ARGH!!!!


4. Interruptions...

You're just getting to the good bit and someone starts talking to you. They can see the book. They know you're reading... But they don't care because they want to talk to you. And as if that isn't enough, they expect a reply. And when your reply is monosyllabic you get told off for being rude. Hello! Who interrupted reading time?


5. #Boyfriends who don't read...

Going to sound super judgemental now... Sorry. As someone who's entire life revolves around books, it's almost 100% impossible for me to date a guy that doesn't at least read from time to time. And if he scoffs at books, it's cause for a break up. Sorry... Not sorry...


6. Book #Hangovers...

Again, I'm being a hypocrite. I write books and leave my readers hanging for months but I still hate it when I'm the one left hanging! There is nothing worse than that craving you get for the next book when the next book is an unknown quantity... Will they write it? Won't they? When will they write it?


7. When a book breaks you...

It doesn't matter if it's the death of a character or just an awfully heart wrenching #plot line, when a book breaks your #soul, it's the worst. I remember when I finished the #Divergent #Series, I cried for an hour straight and called my mum. I'm not a child. I'm not even a teenager. I'm almost thirty. But I was so upset, I called my mummy!


8. #Reading #Slumps...

There are very few things I hate more than when I can't find something I want to read or when I have plenty I want to read but I just can't bring myself to do it. How is that even possible? Books = Life and yet sometimes, I just can't. It's like I forget how to live...


9. The morning after a book all nighter...

The number of times I've gone to work after pulling a book all nighter. It was not pretty. I looked like I'd been out partying or something but no, I'd been at home with a good book. The worst bit is a book all nighter doesn't necessarily end when light comes. No. Book all nighters usually go on until you turn the last page. No matter how long that takes. It could be hours or it could be days. It doesn't matter. I will not sleep until I've finished!


10. People who read the last page and then tell you how it ends...

I love my granny but she did this to me once. I nearly throttled her!


11. People who say you read too much...

Please tell me how you define reading too much. It's impossible to read too much. If you can't keep up, that's not my fault. The more books you read, the better in my opinion.


I need to stop before I go into all out rant mode... if I'm not there already, he he.
