Bad Bookworm Confessions: Part 2

In a previous post I shared a few of the ways I fall short of the ideal bookworm image. While you’ve been generous to overlook these few eccentricities, I must admit, I’ve been holding back. Oh, yes. There’s more.

Bad Bookworm Confessions: Part 2

Today, I’ve got five more bad bookworm confessions to unburden.


I know many authors put a lot of creativity into titling their chapters. If you’re amongst them, I apologize in advance. I’m sure they’re very good, but I’ll never see them. My eyes skip straight to the paragraph and I never look back.


Reading is a lot of fun, but I wouldn’t categorize myself as a voracious variety of bookworm. My many hobbies, interests, and aspirations mean I have to pick and choose how to spend my spare time, and sometimes a book just doesn’t suit my mood. But when it does watch out, TBR pile!


Call me shallow if you like, but I can’t help but judge a book by its cover. With so many gorgeous jackets to peruse among the promising debuts and freshly-recovered classics, it’s impossible not to pick the next thing to read based entirely on outer beauty.


Although the aesthetic appeal of a wizard-spellbook-sized tome is undeniable, I can’t seem to find the strength to pick up any book with an excessive page count. Try as I might, many a lengthy title is often set aside indefinitely in favor of something quite a bit shorter.


As a creative person, I analyze and overthink everything I read, watch, and otherwise consume. But when it comes to book blogging, I don’t feel particularly motivated to critique, nitpick, or share those opinions. I would rather highlight things I liked about the book so someone else can enjoy it and come to their own conclusions. If you’d like to get into a deeper conversation about the book after that, let’s get into it!


Do you have any controversial bookish habits? If you’re feeling brave, feel free to share!
