Top Ten Book Problems I Have

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where we post 10 of our favorite things in each category.

Top Ten Book-Related Problems I Have
A few serious ones...
1. Dog-earing pages
Ew ew ew. I can't stand this. I would much rather try to memorize the page number and forget than do this. It bugs me so much...

2. Unoriginal Covers
Sorry to single this one out here, because there are many books that just don't have very creative covers. For me, I totally judge a book by it's cover, because good covers are just so much more appealing than bland ones. 

3. Reading too much of one genre in a row
My eyes are already in pain looking at too many dystopian books in a row. I need a variety of books on my shelf, and I need to read them in such an order that I don't obsessively only read one. It gets so boring and all of the genres each have their symptoms. 

4. Uncompleted Series on my Shelves
Oh this bothers me so much. ONLY the first four AHHH! My books are all in my room, and it bothers me so much when I don't have all the books in the series. I died for 3 months until I got the final Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book. 

5. Leaving books flipped over
You all know what I'm talking about. When you can't find a bookmark and don't want to move so you just flip the book over and keep your place. And the creases it creates on the back of paperback books. *horrified face*

Some less serious topics...but still very important

6. Fangirling over fictional guys
Probably the worst problem on this list. Why are all the amazing guys all in books? I mean I fell in love with Fred Weasley in 5th grade. How could the world be so cruel? 

7. Constantly wondering why I can't live in a book
Let's be real...I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter. Where is it? I mean, I am obviously a witch in disguise. 

8. Friends not understanding why I rant about books so much
All my friends think I'm crazy when I go on my 3 minute rants about different characters and different plot twists in the books I am reading. Like the other day I saw an airplane and I sent love to it...Ask the Passengers anyone?

9. Not being able to do anything else
What can I say? I'm reading! And someone's about to die! And they're about to kiss! And everything's about to go down....summary of my life. 

10. Wanting to read a bad book
Tiny problem as a book blogger, is that I just want to read a really really bad book sometimes. I want to be able to pour out my entire soul into telling how bad the book was. Is that weird?

What are some of your book-related problems? And can you relate to any of mine? 


  1. OK, #1 and #5. Yes, yes, yes! Books should always remain pristine. Truly. LOL

    1. I truly don't understand people who ruin their books. It's horrible...:(

  2. Ah this is a great list Kate! I forgot about some of these, particularly reading too much of one genre all the time! It makes me get confused as to what I have and haven't read and then I can't help but compare them too much!

    Here are my top ten bookish problems if you would like to take a look :-)

    1. I totally agree. Also reading too much sci-fi tends to get boring, and too much contemporary gets a bit depressing. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great list! I am very guilty of turning books over when I don't have a bookmark. I just can't help it! And why can't hogwarts be real? I'd be on the next flight to England if it was!

    1. I used to wonder if Harry Potter was real and JK Rowling was secretly a witch...if only.

  4. I definitely understand #1. I hate it when books are dog-eared. I always have to use an actual bookmark as to not damage the book. Great list, thanks for sharing! :)

    1. I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my books. Thanks!

  5. I so do many of these things. Dog earing. yes I am a guilty. I try to find my bookmarks. I buy them all the time but then I have them all in use... yes 25 of them.... bad me. Or I am somewhere I don't have one. I am bad about just picking up any book no matter where I am and just start reading. I hate it. I have ten zillion reads going on at one time. Flipping books upside down. I do that too. and I hate it. Incomplete series on my shelf ugh really hate that.

    1. It's okay, I'm very guilty of flipping books upside down when I need to use the restroom or something like that. I never seem to have a bookmark! But I usually try and memorize the page or write it down on my phone.
