Hello bookworms, and welcome back! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means… it’s Top Five Wednesday. This is a weekly tag/post created and hosted by Lainey from gingerreadslainey on Youtube – check her out!
And this weeks topic is Bookish Habits, as you may have already guessed. So, without further delay, let me tell you the top five bookish habits that I have.
1. Reading by chapters
I think this must be a habit for everyone, but I have an OCD about reading by chapters. Every time I read, I read in chapter blocks. If I have started a chapter, I will not stop reading until the chapter is done, but if I absolutely must stop reading, the next time I get back to it, I have to start the chapter all over again, no matter what.
2. Reading the last page
I have a horrible habit of reading the last page of every book that I start. It’s absolutely horrible, because I end up spoiling the book for myself. I’m getting better at controlling this habit, but every now and then, I have a little peak. [I know, it’s horrible].
3. Buying the physical copy even though I have the e-book
Here’s something about me. I really love books – the physical kind. I also love cheap books. And e-books are usually quite cheap, so I get them. However, even though I have the e-book copy of a book, if I like it, there is nothing that will stop me from buying the physical copy also. An example of this is Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey. However, the physical copy I own is one borrowed from the school, so I must return it, which is why I purchased the e-book – to have my own copy.
4. Staring dreamily at my bookshelf + constant re-arranging
This is a habit that I have. Sometimes, I’ll walk into the room where my bookshelves are, and I’ll stop in my tracks, mesmerized by my books. I just love them so much okay, don’t judge me. I also have the habit of always re-arranging my books on my bookshelf. I’m never happy with the way my books sit on my bookshelf. Now that I think about it, my bookshelf is in need of re-arranging right now… [Oh no, it’s happening again].
5. Falling in love with male characters
This just popped into my head right now, no joke. I just realized that when I read a book, most likely, I will fall in love with a male character if there is one in the book I’m reading. For every book I’ve read, I’ve fallen in love with a male character! For example, Leo from The Heroes of Olympus, Jace from The Mortal Instruments, Stark from The House of Night Series, Peeta from The Hunger Games, Chaol & Prince Dorian from Throne of Glass, and many more. I have a weak heart everyone…
