Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.
This week is Top Ten Tuesday REWIND!
So, it took a while to pick a past one to to, but below are my Top Ten Bookish Confessions.
- I love my books to death.
By this I mean that I read them over and over until they fall apart. You should see my copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - oh wait, I had to buy a new one it was that wrecked. Even my signed copy of The Name of the Star is trashed because I've read it so much.
- I'm a book bitch.
Sometimes I just get my mega-bitch on and my review is "bitch-bitch-bitch" even if I liked it. I mean, one of my more recent 4/5 star reviews called the book crap. I obviously didn't mean it was crap crap as I gave it a really high rating but I put it anyway.
- I abuse my books.
They just lie around the house. Everywhere. Mostly on the floor. And I don't just pile them up neatly - I often just chuck them in the general direction of the pile and hope it doesn't all collapse. I love them, but I also love the character my abused books have - dog-eared pages, broken spines, weird stains from god-knows-what.
- I freaking love reading in the bath.
This has been the downfall of so many books. And my saviour when it came to The DaVinci Code. On my fifth attempt I "accidentally" dropped it and didn't fish it out until it was a nasty pile of mush. Because I thought it was that bad.
- I've read VERY few classics.
It was only last year that I finally read Pride and Prejudice. And I didn't even like it much beyond the social commentary aspect. I'll stick to the film ;) This most likely stems from having Great Expectations rammed down my freaking throat in high school.
- I judge books by their covers.
Kinda badly too. I generally won't pick a book up if it has a naff cover. I actually didn't want to read The Fault In Our Stars because of that awful cover, I only ended up reading it because it was part of a book club read. And it was amazing.
- I'm a book snob.
Some books are just naff. And some books just have that kind of extreme-fan-girl-meanie following that immediately puts me off before I even pick it up. And I almost threw up when I saw Wuthering Heights with a "Bella and Edward's Favourite Book" sticker on the front in Waterstones.
- And I will judge you by what you read.
What's that? You're a Twilight fan? I don't think we can be friends any more. That's a joke obviously, but I really didn't like it. Or Fifty Shades of Grey. I have standards and they came nowhere near.
- But I do read those books.
I have read Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey and I tried The Mortal Instruments (the only one I couldn't complete!)
I actually liked Katie Price's Angel series.
It's like my ultimate girly dirty nasty makes-me-so-ashamed guilty pleasure. I haven't even put in on my Goodreads or reviewed it anywhere because how can I look down my nose at Twilight fans when I secretly love this shite?
