Hello! Today I am going to be listing my top 5 bookish struggles that all bookworms can relate too, WISvsWIF edition. (What I Say v.s. What I Feel)
WARNING, SPOILER ALERT: Being a true bookworm is a lot harder that it looks
1. When people ask you your favorite book, they expect you to pick just one
What I say: *lists every single book I’ve ever read*
What I feel deeeep down inside: I have tons of favorite books, want to hear all of them and then read them so we can fangirl over them? Cool, great, here they are!
- Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoinex by J.K. Rowling
- The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
- A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L’engle
- The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brain Selznick
- Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
- More in counting!
2. When people tell you that you ‘read too much’
What I say: *keeps reading, doesn’t make eye contact, but close to tears*
What I feel deeeep down inside: HOW DARE YOU.
3. Or when they tell you that they don’t like to read
What I say: *attempts to nod head to indicate that you respect their opnion but ends up making the you’re-a-weirdo-face*
What I feel deeeep down inside: *however a human being feels after eating 10 coachroaches*
(Probably not very good…)
4. When a movie based on a book gets everything wrong and you’re just sitting in the audience like
What I say: *chokes on popcorn and spills soda*
What I feel deeeep down inside: *slow claps* That was the best movie ever-except you left out all the important characters, plot twists, and scences. Also, the characters don’t look like how they were described in the books at all. Otherwise, it was fine. Just great.
5. When there are no good books left to read
What I say: *Desperately searches bookshelf*
What I feel deeeep down inside: What am I going to do with my life?
