We bookworms go through a lot in our lives. I have gratefully made a list of some things that are terrifying. DO NOT LOOK UNLESS YOU ARE A ZOMBIE OR A VAMPIRE OR A DEMON. YOU WILL BE TERRIFIED. BELIEVE ME. (or don’t.)
1.) MONEY MONEY MONEY. HAHAHA WE BROKE PEOPLE.
books are expensive. Gosh, I have just like 5 hardbacks, all others are paperbacks. A hardback costs 1000 rupees and I can get THREE paperbacks for that price. SO WHY BOTHER?? also, bookstores suck. we do not have any YA except Divergent, The Hunger Games, Twilight, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and The Mortal Instruments. So I have to order everything from amazon. #MYLIFESUCKS
2.) THE WAIT.
This is a well know fact-
When you want time to pass away quickly, it goes like a snail, and when you want it to go like a snail, it goes with the speed of light. EVERYONE HAS REALISED THIS MORE THAN ONCE IN THEIR LIFE. Be it cliffhangers, sequels, a new book from our favourite author, or even a book from an author we don’t know WE ARE ALWAYS WAITING. Currently I am waiting for 3 books that I will happily exchange everything for.
1.) HEARTLESS BY MARISSA MEYER- November is close, so one month more won’t hurt, right?? WRONG.
2.) LORD OF SHADOWS BY CASSANDRA CLARE- HEY, CLIFFHANGER AT THE END OF LADY MIDNIGHT. also, people who are attending NY comic con are getting a chapter sampler, plus pages from the TMI colouring book. WHY DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE NONE OF THESE THINGS HAPPEN. *thinks about moving to New York*
3.) CHAIN OF THORNS BY CASSANDRA CLARE- we don’t even know If it is releasing in 2017 or 2018. HOW CAN WE WAIT TILL SO LONG??? It shows on Cassie’s website that it will publish in 2017,but foolish Goodreads says 2018. I HAVE MY DOUBTS. plus, have you looked at Cassie’s TLH Pinterest board? it will break your heart, and the quotes on there, my dear. WELCOME TO LAND OF THE DEAD. Can we sob together? I promise I can be found somewhere.
4.) WHY DON’T WE HAVE SOME TRAGIC BACKSTORIES? BONUS- WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE ALIVE? KILL ALL OF THEM. SHIPS. LOVE TRIANGLES, QUADRILATERALS, PENTAGONS, HEXAGONS, SEPTAGONS, OCTAGONS, NONAGONS AND DECAGONS.
I need to calm down. I just gave you a ‘types of polygons’ lesson. SHEESH. authors know where to hit so we can die.
4.) WHEN IT IS 2 AM AND YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTENSE CHAPTER.
This happens to me everyday. but I don’t read in the night on school days. SLEEP IS IMPORTANT.
I HAVE NEVER SLEPT LATER THAN 12:30 AM BUT I BLAME THAT ON HARRY POTTER, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS AND THE PRINCESS DIARIES.
5.) PAPER CUTS, AND CORNERS OF HARDBACKS.
we bookworms like to have a constant threat on our lives. I have gotten uncountable number of paper cuts. we need to tame these papery creatures. how about we open a school and I AM THE HEADMASTER? ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE TRULY WELCOME.6.)
6.) A FEELING TO LEAVE OUR CITY/TOWN/COUNTRY-
HAVE YOU NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT GOING TO NARNIA, HOGWARTS, DISTRICT 12(KIDDING) OR DIVERGENT CHICAGO (KIDDING AGAIN) I cried when my Hogwarts acceptance letter did not come on my 11th birthday.
7.) LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, FICTIONAL CRUSHES-
authors have great ways of tormenting us. JUST LOOK AT LINES THAT FICTIONAL BOYS SAY AND THOSE SPOKEN BY BOYS THESE DAYS.
So that’s it!! I could think of a million other things but this post is so long anyways.
I would like to conclude by saying-
3 CHEERS FOR ALL FELLOW BOOKWORMS, NERDS AND BOOKLOVERS FOR GOING THROUGH SO MUCH BUT NEVER THROWING UP.
