After the very personal post that I shared yesterday, I feel like more personal and honest post about my opinions is something that I want to do. So here are four of my bookish confessions, some of which are unpopular opinions as well. 1)I don't like bookstagram:what I mean is it's just not
for me. I'm sorry, but it's true! I know there's so many people that love
bookstagram and I think that's amazing, but for me the pictures are pretty and
that's it! I have no interest in spending my time watching pictures of books, I
just don't and it's a personal preference.BUT
I think it's completely OK if other people want to do it!
The only thing that has me a bit worried is that the 'bookstagram
trend' is taking over a lot of blogs. I mean I have noticed that lately some
bloggers worry more about the pictures that go with the blog post than the
actual written content. I don't know if it's just me, but I go to blogs because
I want to read the bloggers opinions, comments, recommendations, not because I
want to see pretty pictures of books. I love blogs that do both things - pretty
pictures and great content- but if I had to choose, I would choose content over
2) I'm not enjoying booktube lately: I just go
through periods of time where I get bored of watching the same books, the same
tags, the same kind of videos in every channel. It gets a bit frustrating and -
again- boring. I usually get over my 'booktube slump' after a few weeks of not
watching so much booktube videos. But I would still like to subscribe to more people
that create unique book related content (let me know in the comments if you
have recs, please!). Right now, the only booktuber I have been enjoying is The
Book Hoarder, because she has been making very different types of videos.
3)I can't listen
to audiobooks without following the words in a page: I don't know if I'm
the only person this happens to, but I just can't concentrate otherwise. It
sucks! That's the reason I don't listen to audiobooks, I have tried a few times
and I just can't listen to the narrator and follow what he/she is saying without also reading the words.
The most I have listen to an audiobook is 50%, when I was reading Yes
please by Amy Poehler, when I reached that point in the book I decided it was
pointless to keep listening if I had to follow the words in the page.
discovered that I don't really enjoy ARC's: Maybe that's not the best
way to put it.I LOVE ARC's.
What I mean is that usually I get an ARC and I may really want to read
it...sometime...like in the future. But it's very likely that I won't want to
read it when they give it to me, because I'm a total mood reader. So if I'm not
in the mood for a book, it's likely that I won't enjoy it because I'm reading
it just to review it before release date. That's usually what happens when I
get at ARC, I end up feeling guilty and reading it even if I don't want to and
I just end up not enjoying the book as much.
That's it! Those were my four bookish confessions, let me know if you agree o disagree with me! Also, tell me some of your bookish confessions in the comments, or maybe
some of your unpopular opinions.
