Top Ten Tuesday - Bookish Confessions

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this feature includes random weekly bookish top tens. This week's list is - top ten bookish confessions. The lovely ladies say it can be anything! "You dog ear, you hated a book  but said you loved it, you have $500 library fines...anything goes!" So here goes my list!

  1. I do NOT dog ear. Maybe this isn't a true confession, but it's definitely the truth. I don't want to hurt the book! Maybe that's crazy, but I just can't bend pages. I'll use just about anything as a bookmark so there are no dog ears in my books!
  2. The spines on books shouldn't be broken. Sure, it would look like a well loved book if it's all worn, but I just don't want to break the spines. I don't want any of my books to even look like they've been read! It's sad but true.
  3. I probably have about $15.00 in library overdue fines. I'm generally okay with library fines because it makes me feel like I'm contributing in a way.. haha.
  4. I absolutely can't stand Catcher in the Rye! I'm not usually shy about it, but I always feel like I have to tell people this.
  5. Usually when everyone loves a good, I'm not so gaga over it. See: Such a Rush and Divergent.
  6. I tend to forget books and plots over time. It can happen really fast, but some books stick with me. Sometimes I can read a book again without even knowing that I've read it. That is good and bad.
  7. I hate re-reading! I don't want to waste time reading a book after I've already read it and know all its secrets.
  8. Now that I've said I hate re-reading, I'll confess that I recently re-read Summer Sisters and couldn't effing stand it. Geesh.
  9. I like nonfiction. This isn't really a huge confession, but I don't think enough people read it. Some of my favorite books this year have been nonfiction! 
  10. I like to read the book first before the movie. And if I see a movie trailer that was a book first, I'll try to read it before I go see the movie if I'm interested. 
Those are my confessions! Let me know what yours are! :o)


  1. Book ears are something that really annoy me too. I'd use anything and everything as a bookmark - usually random scraps of paper - but NEVER dogear a page.

    I can't stand Catcher and the Rye... sometimes I feel like there's something wrong with me because I just don't understand why so many people list it as their favourite book.

  2. Totally agree on 1 & 2 and I'm happy to hear that you like non fiction as much as I do! :-)

  3. awesome list!! I love to read a book before the movie too!! And well, I love re-reading :P :P It's like catching up with a friend for me :P :)

  4. #10 all the way! I actually hate reading a book after I've seen the movie. Ugh!

  5. I totally forget plots all the time! I tend to not realize if I've read a book before until the end. Sometimes not even then. I just wish I could do that with books I want to read again for the first time :)

  6. I'm the same for a lot of these BUT esp. Re-reading books, I hate it, but im trying to start doing it, in fact im re-reading Ashfall by Mike Mullin, which was my favorite book of 2011, and also I HAVE to read the book before the movie, otherwise i'll never read the book, and we all know books are usually better then their movie counterparts!!

  7. I want books to look like I never read them, too, but it never happens. No matter how much I try not to mess up the pages or break the spine, it always happens, and I've had so many books get destroyed, sometimes in just a first reading. (It's partly related to how clumsy I am.) It's why I LOVE my e-reader. My books never get destroyed! And I don't have to obsessively worry about bookmarks or preserving the pages.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
