Bookshelf jealousy

I don’t know about you avid book addicts, but when I come home with a new stack of books, my shelf is just warping under the expected pressure of holding more and more 🤣

I’m that person that has stacks of books in my living rooms, spare room and bedroom. I truely hope they please the eye ascetically, but honestly they probably just confirm the fact that I am a book addict and cannot fathom giving up some of my favourite reads.

Is your bookshelf jealous of how many new book you bring home each week/fortnight/month? 📚

Let’s talk my latest book & tv show obsession …

It was about time I shared this book to tv show adaptation on my blog because MY GOD – I cannot stop talking about it in the store, to my friends, to customers, nor rewatching it on Netflix.

It is … ‘Heartstopper’ 😍😍

Soon after me discovering this graphic novel (that admittedly I’d picked up and put back down again in the bookstore multiple times!!), had it been created into a tv show – I was bingeing it in no time! Now I’m not talking your regular tv series binge, I’m talking laughing/crying/gasping/squealing and feeling all the feels.

I then went on to buy the first book and devour it in one sitting. I’m in love with the characters of Charlie and Nick and the relationships it just show are just the cutest, most positive representation of LBGTQIA+. This show makes my heart happy and my soul warm. Read the graphic novels and try something new, like I did! Then watch the tv show, it is just the best!

What type of reader are you?

What type of reader are you?

Technically, I am the type that … ‘Lives in the bookshop/library’ because I am SUPER LUCKY to work full time in a bookstore and practically live there 😱 , and I also have a big love for my local library. Every visit, I never fail to leave without a book in hand.

I am also a ‘book collector’ because I have more unread books on my shelves than read. I am hoping to somewhat change that this year. I want to make a dent in my TBR but even this far into 2022 – I am already sadly failing …

I would also strongly say I’m the type that ‘never completes (and still buys more)’ because I have a strong personal belief with my reading that, if I am not liking a book 100 pages in – I will not enjoy the rest of the book. This year I have flicked through quite a lot of books with this method … maybe 6 already! I think there are too many GREAT books in the world waiting to be read, therefore I don’t really value spending time on a book I don’t enjoy. Owwww savage, I know but ultimately true! 🤓

Reading Feels

Sooo relaxing 🤣

Can you think of a book, series or author that gives you allll of these reading feels 💬⬇️

For me, the instant book series that comes to mind is Sarah J Maas’ ‘Throne of Glass’! My gosh do these books destroy your entire being/social life/conversations with people/ability to breath-eat-sleep … I have to mentally prepare myself for her newer books – Crescent City 1 & 2. I will hopefully get a wriggle on with them as the days start to cool down and winter rolls in. For some reason, fantasy is a winter read for me and I really struggle to read it when I’m not rugged up on my couch, with a blanket and steaming tea or coffee ☕️
