Top Ten Signs You Are a True Reader

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted on That Artsy Reader Girl and the theme for Tuesday 30th March 2020 is the ‘Top Ten Signs That You Are a Book Reader’. Here’s my list; how many apply to you?

1. You have strong opinions on Kindles. You also have strong opinions on people borrowing your books and bending spines. Any culprits will be hunted down to the ends of the earth. You have been warned.

2. You’re constantly confusing events of fan fiction with what happens in the actual book. It’s a real problem!

3. You have far too many books for your shelves. However, you do have particular stacks of books dotted around your room in a system known only to you and God. And if anyone ever tries to ‘help’ they are quickly ejected from the room. tHeRe’s a sYsTeM!

4. You are always plaguing your family and friends with facts about books. Then there’s that shocking moment when you realise that they don’t actually know these people. And that they don’t actually exist. That’s always a horrible moment.

5. You get high off the smell of new books. I swear it’s one of the best feelings – just thinking about Waterstones, ughhhh!

6. You follow Hundreds and Thousands of Books.

7. You are all about bookish podcasts. I would highly recommend ‘Potterless‘, a podcast following an American man reading Harry Potter for the first time. It’s hilarious.

8. Your TBR list can only be described as ‘unmanageable.’ I will get through it one day. Just give me one day more (see what I did there, hehe.)

9. You ALWAYS read the book before you see the film. It’s constantly going to be better!

10. You don’t understand your non-Bookworm friends. What do you do with your life when you aren’t pining over fairytale princes or the death of your favourite character?

Do you have any more ideas? Happy TTT!

I’m a teenager from Manchester, and a proud Hufflepuff. I like oversized jumpers, indie music you’ve probably not heard of, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teenage romance (it’s ironic I know – but you can’t really go wrong with ‘A Fault in Our Stars’)! I’m always being told to go and ‘be active’ or something instead of sitting in my room reading and listening to the Smiths, but honestly I don’t see the point. Why would I want to go for a run when I could be reading Rainbow Rowell or Good Omens. And it’s Morrisey for god’s sake. So, I decided to do something with the growing piles of books in my room… and you’re reading the product! It’s a lot more interesting than I thought it would be and I really enjoy it – and I hope you do too. I try to write a review after I’ve read the book each week every Saturday, but no promises! The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite there. Yet.
