Broke and Bookish.
Top Ten bookish things I want to quit
1. Not finishing a series:
I know this is a bad habit...but seriously what person can say they never finished Allegient, So my 2016 goal is finishing those series that I have started and trying my best to break this habit
2. Judging a book by its cover
This may sound cliche I fall in love with covers all the time, but then hate the content. I have learned to do some research into what the book is about first, and reading a few reviews. This sort of leads into my third thing
3. Not Judging a book by others review
Just because one person didn't like it, doesn't mean the book will be the same for you. I hate to admit I sort of let this happen a few times in the past. The same goes for the opposite too, everyone loves loves the book and it just falls short for you, again I don't think this is a bad thing, not every book is going to be a hit.
4. Buying books I might not read
I can't be the only one who does this, I really have this thing about see a book for free, or buying books for 99cents and not ever reading them. I just read that many books go unread on ereaders, and I know I have some I may not ever read, so maybe that 99 cents can get get saved for that new book that I really want.
You know that I see people with arcs every day on twitter, I almost broke down once into begging mood. I had to step back and think for a second. I could try to write to the publishers, but I am not that well-equipped. I don't have many followers. I am trying better on Netgalley to get my rating up. There are so many 2016 books I want to read, I am just going to have to wait until I get them. In the very least it gives me something to look forward too.
6. Getting rid of books-
Gasp...no I said it, I really need to do a major clean out, I have book that I have had since middle school. Honestly do I really need them all, no. I have a hard time with this, books are memories to me, but they are a pain in the butt to move. (Just ask my sister lol)
7. Getting to know people
I have learned through Twitter that book bloggers are amazing people, they are there to help when you need it. Authors are more open to conversations than I first thought. I have to learn how to open up more. This may not be such a bookish habit as it is a life habit.
I may have some more of these, but I can't think of any at the moment. Do you guys have any bookish habits you want to break?
