Top Ten Worst Moments In A Reader’s Life

Hey everyone! How are all a y’all? I’m fantastic (contrary to the mood the title sets…). So last week, the top ten post was the Top Ten Best Moments In A Reader’s Life and quite a bit of you guys liked it (keep liking it up guys!). Unfortunately, there are two sides to the coin and so this week is about those bad moments or things that you may experience as a reader. Don’t discourage yourselves from reading though! All I’m saying is I feel ya. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the post and can relate. Here we go:

  1. That moment when your TBR list is too long and you have no idea where to start….(**hey, should I just re-read Harry Potter again then?**) 
  2. When a book you so desperately want hasn’t been released yet (*cries*)
  3. When that book is also not coming out for a really long time (HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT THAT LONG?! What am I supposed to do in life till then?)
  4. When a book that just came out (that you’re desperately waiting for) isn’t in the library! (Oh roar :( )
  5. When that same book is maybe in the library but you are the 100th person in line and there’s only like 4 books…(I’m going to be 50 by the time I read this book!)
  6. When you loan a book to a friend and they return with pages ripped and/or new stains from some unmentionable substance.. (uhh what’s this? *shrugs* Idk)
  7. When you loan a book to a friend and they don’t ever give it back (uhh. I’ll bring it tomorrow… Seriously?!)
  8. When there seems to be no book left to read (Why??!!!) 
  9. When you meet a fellow reader but they don’t like the same books as you (what’s the point then of being friends?!!) 
  10. When you have no friends to talk to about books (I’m so lonely, oh so lonely…)

So that’s it for today! I hope you guys enjoyed it! Now, I have a couple of questions for you: are these true? Can you relate to these? Do you have any other “worst moments” as a reader? Let me know in the comments below! I really want to know your thoughts and ideas! Also, don’t forget to check out Avid Reader’s newest feature 10 Second Reviews! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!

10 Second Reviews – Week 2 and Catch Up

****UPDATE: This was supposed to be posted on Sunday but it was accidentally posted the day before…Sorry for the confusion!***

Hello everyone! Today is the second week of  10 Second Reviews! Now, to remind you (or inform you if hadn’t seen the announcement), 10 Second Reviews is a post that will feature very short reviews of all the books I have read that week, with the reviews more or less including tags for each book (like #awesome, #spies or #no) and then adding a number out of ten, every week, on a weekend day. Now, I’ve decided to have the posts be on Sunday and the time of the posts will be the same time as Friday Finds. Anyway today is, as aforementioned, the second post of the 10 Second Reviews. This post includes all the books I just finished this week plus all my “catch up” books that I haven’t reviewed before 10 Second Reviews started. I hope you enjoy and definitely let me know what you guys think: things can only change and be made better if you tell me. Thanks. Here we go* (with the very many books I’ve read):

Writer’s Block

It starts easy enough, you know, putting words to a page,

but then the block slowly forms,

my fingers start to falter from their normally fast-paced typing,

I reach to crumble it, from brick to dust,

but it’s coming up too fast.

Oh a writer’s worst nightmare: writer’s block.

Top Ten Best Moments In A Reader’s Life

Hola world! How are you guys? I’m great. So as a fellow reader/blogger, there are some pretty amazing moments that a person can experience as a reader. This top ten list is about those amazing moments! I hope you guys enjoy the post and can relate. Here we go:

  1. That moment when you hold a book that you just bought and feel a sense of achievement.
  2. When a book is on sale…
  3. When a book you’ve been waiting for a hundred years is on sale…
  4. When a book that just came out is on a ridiculously low price
  5. When you open a book for the first time and smell that new book smell
  6. When you see a book worn down from years of reading
  7. When you’ve finished what you think is the last book in the series and then see the next one comes out really soon
  8. When you re-read a childhood book or series (and fall in love all over again)
  9. When you read a new book or series and start to fall in love with the characters and the plot
  10. When you meet a fellow reader (who also likes the same books as you!) and you guys start talking about them and you’re filled with that fuzzy, warm feeling you get when you’re around your “kind”

So that’s it for today! I hope you guys enjoyed it! Now, I have a couple of questions for you: are these true? Can you relate to these? Do you have any other “best moments” as a reader? Let me know in the comments below! I really want to know your thoughts and ideas! Also, don’t forget to check out the grand opening of my new day-post 10 Second Reviews! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!
