When someone doesn't like your favourite book.
When everyone is talking about a book that you've not heard of or read and you feel left out.
When you finish a good book (or series) and you kind of sit there, unsure of which book to start next because you're not ready to let go of the one you just finished.
In the past, I have read on my lunch break at work. I have now given up on that because it never fails to inspire someone to interrupt and ask me what I am reading.
When an author doesn't wrap the ending up perfectly or something goes unanswered.
I understand why some things need to be changed into the book to movie transition - did you know that if you have a character named John Smith and there is a John Smith in the area that you are filming your movie, you have to change your characters name? Interesting. But anyway, I hate when they change things for no reason especially when it's like the biggest part of the book, I'm looking at you a certain book written by a very popular author but I can't say it because then it will be obvious and spoilers.
Speaking of movies, when the casting is so off based on what's in your head, you literally can't even. Hollywood you have one job. One job.
When something is happening in a book you're reading but you can't talk to anyone about it because there are 2 types of people; those who haven't read it therefore they do not care, and those who have and they will either intentionally or unintentionally ruin it for you. I remember reading a certain series a few years ago and someone told me I would love a character I currently hated. Like, that's great but you couldn't wait for me to experience that myself? Now I know it happens.
When you finish a book and you want to tell everyone how good it was
When you find a new series but you didn't know it wasn't finished and now you have to wait FOREVER for the next book but not long enough to forget everything so you can reread them, I'm looking at you Lunar Chronicles. I knew I should have waited!
When people look at you funny when you want to go into a bookstore instead of sephora, or when you want to read instead of going out, or when you can't see that movie because you haven't read the book yet or when you read while walking through an airport.
Being an accidental skimmer, aka you see a word or something on the next page that ruins the page you're on, so you have to cover it with your hand. Thanks kindle, you never show me a page ahead (unless I accidentally skip 5 pages then I have no idea where I am).
Every book lover has a fictional death they will never get over. No? Just me? Even if it's not a human.
Crying more over a book than you ever have over real life. See above. I'll never forget you, H.
I used to think main characters would never die, like in a Disney movie. I feel like I have lost my blanket of security. Now I'm always scared that it will all be ripped away from me.
And of course, the most cliché - but clichés are clichés because they are true.. One more chapter, one more page, all of a sudden it's 2am but hey you might as well finish the book now that you're so close.
When people tell me they don't like to read. I understand, there are things I don't like to do as well, but all I hear is 'I don't like puppies and kittens' as well.
When a book ends abruptly or you weren't expecting it because there was so many pages left (damn book club notes or previews to next books) and you keep checking the back of the book to see if you're somehow missing pages.
When someone says the movie is better than the book.
When a book first comes out only in hardback but the rest of the series is in paperback plus you don't even like hardbacks unless they are certain books, so you have to wait but that means waiting and I don't understand. So I guess I'm buying both.
When people ask you how you read so much, you just shrug and say 'I just do'
When you try and write a post about bookworm problems and it's so freaking long it's ridiculous you should probably cut it down but oh well, and these aren't even problems because books equal happiness and life.
