Hello again! Yeah, so I need to just get this off my chest. I am slightly insane when it comes to books, and in general too, but that’s okay.
Okay, I know many people love to read, but I think I’m actually insane. I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing either.
Honestly, I don’t have a lot of books. I have less than a hundred, I promise. Is it bad that makes me sad? I have a book shelf in my home, but only one shelf out of five is actually devoted to books. This absolutely angers me, because it’s like an injustice to books. My mother is always saying how I have too many, but that honestly isn’t true.
Today though, I happened to buy nine books. Wait! Before you drop your jaws, let me explain. I only spent sixty dollars, which is a great price for nine books. Also, I bought the whole Harry Potter box set (finally)! Yes, I have not read the whole series. My brother had the books, but never let me touch them, and now I don’t have access to them. I’ve been begging for these books for so long now, so finding them at a good price was what made me buy them.
Also I bought Bloodlines, which is a spinoff from the Vampire Academy series. Just saying, the books are so much better than the movie. The movie made me want to cry. I liked the actors, but it felt like a crappy show, instead of the amazingness it really is. Besides that, I also bought the first book in the Percy Jackson series.
Now, I recently got into Percy Jackson, because my friend forced me to read the first book. I’m in the middle of it, but I still had to buy my own hardcopy of it, instead of reading it online, because if I have a book in my actual hands I will read it so much faster.
Here’s why I say I’m insane, I have a list on my phone of books. If someone wants to get me something I will hand them a sheet of paper with books I want. It gets even worse. If I love a series I want to buy every book. I just finished a series with thirteen books not too long ago. I still need to buy twelve more.
I mean, if I had the option to buy the third book of a series because I haven’t read it or the second book because I don’t have it, I’d probably buy the second book. Let’s just say logic goes out the window, but it’s like I know I will reread the series, so I’d like all the books.
Please tell me I’m not the only person who does this? I know I’m crazy, but I can’t be the only one.
So… have any book recommendations?
