Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Blogging Confessions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you at The Broke and the Bookish!! Each week we will be releasing a top ten book related list for you all to enjoy! 

I had fun this week with this one. I enjoyed racking my brain to try to figure out things to put on the list. 

Top Ten Blogging Confessions

1. I LOVED reading Fifty Shades of Grey. I know so many people hated it, but I really enjoyed it and plan to read it again soon. I read what I feel like no matter the opinion of others.

2. I am a cover snob. Some books even if they sound good will take me forever to get to because I don't like the cover. If I have a book with a pretty cover, I tend to move it up on the TBR list. 

3. I don't lend out my books. I have OCD when it comes to my books. They have to be in perfect condition. If something happens to one of my books, I end up going out and buying a new one just because of a scratch on the cover.

4. I have yet to read the Percy Jackson Series. I keep trying to get to it, I even add it to my monthly TBR list a lot, but somehow I always push it aside.

5. I'm bad about getting Galley books and then not reading them. This goes along with #10 with my hate for E-books. But I love the idea of being able to review the books for the authors, I just tend to forget about them.

6. I have probably read 1/3 of the books on my bookshelf. I know I'm horrible. I keep trying to get the list down of unread books, but I keep buying more so it is a never ending cycle.

7. I have an obsession with Faerie books. I didn't know how awesome they were, but now that I have found the world, I am sucked in. I even changed the look of my blog to include Faeries. I have also watched all the Tinkerbell movies because my obsession knows no bounds.

8. I tend to like the book series that most people don't think is very good. Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey are big examples. I own all the Twilight movies and even own a reading copy of the series and I also have a collector's copy that I don't touch. 

9. I have a bookmark collecting problem. I have 2 boxes full of bookmarks and yet I keep buying more. This wouldn't be a problem if I actually rotated all of them out of my books, but I tend to use the same ones over and over.

10. I hate E-books. Please don't shoot me. I like the idea of E-books. So convenient to read and all that. I just when I get down to it, I get headaches and just can't seem to let go of the feeling of a real book. The feel of it and the smell are amazing. Plus anymore I can end up getting most books for cheaper than the Kindle prices anymore. I do still read some review copies on the Kindle, but I am very picky with the ones I accept.


 Well, that's my list for the week! Hope you all enjoy!

  1. I'm with you with the sheer amount of unread books in my collection too but I've given up worrying about it too much as I know I'll get around to most of them..... eventually!

  2. I have the same issue with owning lots of unread books. This doesn't stop me from getting more though, I tell myself I'll read them all eventually.

  3. I too can be swayed just by the cover. I don't know that the cover has ever kept me from reading a book. But it has recently bugged me when a cover was true to the story of the book. Oh and what about books that have the same cover? I came across that recently and it really bothered me. Then what's the deal with using the image of an actor/actress for the cover? That bothers me too.

    1. If a book is good enough and I hear enough about it, I will eventually read it even it a bad cover, but it will make me postpone reading it for quite a while. I haven't came across a book with the same cover that I know of, but I am sure I wouldn't like it very much. I would probably wait for a cover change on one of them before I buy them. Also I hate actor/actress's on the covers, I think it is them trying to plug them to get you to buy the book instead of letting the book speak for itself!
