4 Bookish Confessions (& a few unpopular opinions)


bookish confessions and a few unpopular opinions

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 pictures everytime. 

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. 

4) I have 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.
