Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Ten Bookish Habits I Want To Quit. This is an easy one because if I'm the Queen of anything at all, that's bad habits. Seriously, it's making me anxious to share this with
1. Keep better track of my Goodreads TBR
There's not only a crazy number of books on my TBR list (like 600+) BUT I don't remember half of them and most likely am not that interested in them at this point.
2. Stop buying books because of their covers
What can I say? I love gorgeous covers and need to have them on my shelf.
3. DNF more often
I did DNF a few books this year but I still finish nearly every book.
4. Stop wanting to watch every book adaptation
I'm a sucker for great book adaptations and am always on the lookout for a new one to love so I usually watch even the ones that I didn't even like as a book. I know, it doesn't make sense!
5. Quit feeling bad about not finishing a series
This is kinda like DNF-ing for me. I can do it but will always wonder: what if it got better in one of the sequels?
6. Stop reorganizing my bookshelves all the time
However I organize my shelves, they'll never look good enough for me, even though I work a lot when I'm organizing them. But hey, at least my books are dusted of every couple of months. ;)
7. Quit taking part in reading challenges
I hate losing and not being able to complete a challenge is kinda like losing, so obviously I can't freaking stand it. Also, if it's a longer than a month challenge, I'll get super-bored of it after maximum two months.
8. Don't read instead of paying attention on my classes
No explanation needed.
9. Quit checking how much % I have left of a book every couple of minutes
This is a very bad habit because it doesn't let me fully enjoy the books. I think this is related to #7, so maybe I should fix that and then concentrate on this one.
10. Stop caring about what others thought about a book I loved
I usually don't care about others' opinion - I mean, we all have different reading tastes. But there are some cases when I can't help but feel as though my opinion isn't as well-thought-out as others'. For example, a few weeks back I read a novel and was totally in love with everything about it. Then I looked around on Goodreads and saw that many reviewers thought that it wasn't at all creative nor original and the ending didn't come as a surprise either.
I felt like if more well-read and popular reviewers thought that way, then I was wrong and maybe I shouldn't post such a striking review. BUT THIS WAS WRONG, and you shouldn't do it either. Don't let others' opinion make you ashamed of what you're loving. No matter what you're reading, hold your head up high and don't think for a minute that anyone else's opinion matters more than yours.
