This is a fun challenge for book bloggers created and hosted by April at Good Books Good Wine.  

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Good Books And Good Wine

For Day 1, we are being asked to make fifteen book-related confessions so here it goes!

1. I am notorious for being late returning library books.

2. I am a bit obsessed with series and reading books in proper series order.

3. I am very selective about who borrows my books to the point of being almost rude at times.

4. I used to dogear books that I owned, but have become much better about using bookmarks since January.

5. I love taking long baths and reading though my normal routine doesn't allow for that much leisure time.

6. I read and eat simultaneously all the time.  And, as clumsy as I am, I don't spill as much as you would think.

7. I used Spark Notes/Cliff Notes for most of my HS required reading.  I never liked being told what to read so this was my passive aggressive rebellion against it.

8. I love my e-reader, but if I read a great book on it, I have to buy a physical copy.  I am irrationally terrified that something will happen and I will lose all my e-books someday.

9. Even though I have almost one hundred unread books on my shelf, I can't stop myself from buying more.  I then feel really guilty for not reading books in a timely fashion.

10. I love checking out what people are reading.  I was at the beach last week and probably creeped some people out because I was trying to see what they were reading.

11. I almost always have to have a happy ending in my books.  There are rare occurrences where this isn't required, but very rare.
12. I love watching movies based on books and usually end up liking them.

13. I always think of theme songs that go along with the books that I read and am thinking about doing a regular feature on that.

14. I usually read between three and five books at a time: at least one physical book, one e-book, and one audiobook simultaneously.

15. I am passionate about the genres that I love and have no problem discussing their merits with others even if they don't always agree with me.


  1. I just renewed one of my library books the other day :D I am relieved that my library sends emails a couple days in advance since otherwise I would never remember. I was actually shocked it was due already, I swear I just checked that one out last week... and by week I mean month >.>

    I totally understand the ebook fear. I actually just don't trust Amazon not to take my books :(

    1. That's exactly how I end up with so many late books! Also, I have a bad habit of checking out more books than I could possibly read in the time limit. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I can be bad at returning library books on time too, haha.

    E-books do seem to be a bit precarious don't they? I mean, you could just delete them accidentally somehow and if you don't have them backed up, welp what are you gonna do??

    Love the name of your blog, btw!!

  3. Ha! I am totally guilty of creeping on what other people are reading. And even though I am at the library every day -- I work there -- I still forget to return my books on time occasionally!

    glad to have found your blog -- feminism and fairy tales are two of my favorite things!

    1. I work in a library too so it is really embarrassing that I forget to return books. Thanks for visiting!

  4. I also love to eat while I read, there is no greater pleasure. I have always liked paperback more than Ebooks. But e books are great when you are traveling though. Love the list here!!!

  5. damn straight happy endings! I'm with you all the way on that one. I will read some books that don't have happy endings, but it's rare.

    I used to dogear library books. Shame on me. I don't anymore though. And I'm the same way with wanting to own physical copies of books I love, even if I have the ebook.

    Oh, and I am a book creeper, too, always checking out what people are reading. I can't help myself :)

    1. I'm glad to know there are others who are book creepers like me. I'm sure it is really annoying, but oh well!

  6. I also creep on people to see what they are reading, like Quinn I can't not look.

    Hahaha, I am also in the overdue library fine club as well. I mean, I always pay it with a smile but still I never remember to take things back on time.

    Also! I just moved into an apartment with a bathtub from one that only had a shower, so your confession about reading in the tub is making me want to draw a hot bath right this second.

    1. After a long day, there is nothing I love more than a hot bath and good book so I highly recommend it. Yeah for more members the overdue book club! Thanks for hosting this fun challenge!
