Lies We Bookworms Like To Tell Ourselves

 

Yep.
Don’t deny it, we all tell these little lies to ourselves as some point or another! 🙂
Well, maybe lie is a bit of a strong words?
Deny?
Fib?
Hmm, something like that!!

“JUST ONE MORE CHAPTER”

Come on, we’ve all said it. One more chapter and the next thing you know I’m 237 pages in and I’ve forgotten what I was supposed to do. It happens all the time, one chapter soon turns into six and then you may as well carry on reading now!?

“I DON’T NEED NEW BOOKSHELVES”

This is me right now, I have books overflowing everywhere, do I need a new bookshelf? N(YES)O.

*I need one so badly it’s unreal*

“NO, I’M NOT GOING TO BUY THAT BOOK”

HA!
This is me all the time, I really shouldn’t buy that book because I have over 80 books on my shelf to read!?!?!?!
*hand slips and accidentally orders 17 books*
OH DAMN.
how did that happen?

“NOPE, I DON’T HAVE A CRUSH ON A FICTIONAL CHARACTER”

Chaol Westfall who?
Whoops.
Ladies and Gentleman we all have a crush on a fictional character 😉

“LOOK AT ALL THESE AMAZING BOOKS, I’M TOTALLY NOT GOING TO RE-READ A FAVOURITE”

HAH!
Yeah, I’m totally not going to re-read Harry Potter or A Court of Mist and Fury when I can read all the knew upcoming releases…..

“I AM TOTALLY COPING WITH MY TBR”

Sobs hysterically while under a pile of books.

“I NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER”

I sadly, am the worst at this.
I forever pick up a book based on it’s beautiful cover and then I get it home and read it and it’s absolute trash.
Hey, ‘least it looks good on my bookshelf, right?

“READING IS SO RELAXING”

WAIT
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
ARE THEY DEAD?
OMG THIS CAN’T BE THE END?
I HATE LIFE, WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT A THOUSAND YEARS FOR THE NEXT ONE!?!?!?!11 🙁 🙁
yep, soooo relaxing.


how many of these to you tell yourselves?
are there some not on here that you do?

  1. I love this!! It’s hilarious and it’s so true. 🙂
    Though I really do need new bookshelves, or at least some better way of reorganising them, so I can’t really deny that one.

  2. I once only sleep for like two hours a day because I wanted to finish the book I’m reading. (it was on winter break so no uni to get in the way from me with my babies)

    One of the reasons I hate reading trilogy/series book is I don’t want want to wait. I want to read the next book NOW but obviously, life doesn’t work that way. #sad
