Happy Tuesday! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a freebie, so I decided to talk about bookish confessions. You know, those things we’re afraid to admit in a crowd of other book lovers because if we do ‘fess up we might have to turn in our ‘bookworm for life’ card. Check out Modern Mrs. Darcy’s post on this subject too!
And let’s just get this one out of the way before we officially start the list – I own more books than I will ever read in one lifetime…. but I keep getting more. (Raise your hand if you could say this too!)
I love Pride & Prejudice but I don’t get the fascination with Mr. Darcy. Give me Mr. Knightley any day!
I read Twilight. I’m not proud of it.
I have never read past the first chapter of Wuthering Heights. I’ve embraced the fact that I never will.
I borrowed my friend’s copy of Rebecca YEARS ago and a) still haven’t read it and b) still haven’t returned it. I hereby hang my head in shame.
I dogear pages. (Gasp!)
I go to sleep every night listening to the Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone audiobook read by Jim Dale. Particularly the first chapter because I love the line “A cat. Reading a map.” Apparently I’m not too old for bedtime stories 😉
My first word was ‘book’. Foreshadowing at its best.
As a child, I used to read the heroine’s dialogue as though I was acting it out in a movie or play. (Bonus confession: I still do this in my head. Ahem.)
Sometimes I read the last page first because I want to know that everything ends okay. (I never do this in a mystery or suspense novel, though.)
I have, on more than one occasion, read a book that was meant to be a gift before I wrapped it up and gave it to the intended recipient.
Ok, now it’s your turn to ‘fess up! This is a safe space 😎 What ‘bookish confessions’ have you been dying to get off your chest? Share them in the comments!
