Wanted: Help For My Book Addiction (Or, how I keep adding to my TBR list without even trying)


I swear, just like moths are attracted to candles, I am unnaturally attracted to books. I can’t walk into a library and leave without a novel or something, anything.  It doesn’t help that the skate rink’s right next to the library, or that I’m walking distance of both fine establishments. *sighs*

So anyway, you know this picture I took last month of my book haul?


Yeah, this is the new and improved version of it.


It’s hopeless. I walk into a library for any random reason, waiting for a ride home, studying, accidentally triggering the apocalypse, and behold, there’s another cover begging me to pick it up. If books were cats, my room would have more mews than a pet shop.

But behold. New books to read!

A Wrinkle In Time was interesting, weird, slightly confusing,  and made me miss Loki whenever it mentioned the word tesseract.

Neil Flambe was a pretty good mystery, but not exactly well done or to my taste.

Soar was an awesome small town first person POV narrative, and I appreciate baseball now more than ever.

Tuck Everlasting was the saddest thing I’ve read in forever, and I’m super sad Jesse and Winnie didn’t- oh never mind, just read the book. I’ll be the kid at the librarian’s desk sobbing. I have no clue why this book was banned at all. It’s… wow.

And the rest? Uhhhh.. I haven’t read them yet? I’m reading Because Of Winn-Dixie right now, and so far, like all the other books I’ve read this year, it’s really good.

The other three I picked up purely because of the cover. The Other Side of Summer’s cover was of a girl with a guitar, I had to get that one. And Wolf Hollow was so cool how could you not read it?  I need a life.

Some days I wonder if adding my own story to the massive amount of stories already out there is worth it. There are literally thousands of them out there, and I can name 12 from the top of my head that are like the one I’m writing. Why do I even try?

I have no clue. But I do anyway. When I’m not reading, that is.

Y’all, drag me to counselling, because from the weird looks people give me when I’m walking down the street with a book in hand, it’s not normal. But I was never normal to begin with, not with my stories and all. But maybe that’s a good thing.

I’ll leave you to this carol now. Go and read a book sometime, why don’t you? 🙂

      1. It’s super good…It begins with this girl named Sophie Foster who has a secret, she can read minds. It’s been her burden since she was five years old, now she’s a twelve-year-old college senior. That is, until she meets Fitz, who ushers her into a world where she just might truly belong.

  1. HA HA, JO, I’m going to have to break it to you…this is just a problem you’re going to have to deal with as a bookworm. My reading list is pretty near a mile-high. XD

  2. Haha, I totally understand your struggle!!!
    I just started volunteering at my local library and every time I walk in there I come home with at least 3 more books even though I have who-knows-how-many at home still!

  3. LOL I HEAR YA!!! I was just telling my sister I wished I could read MORE. All I do now is write. (#helphelphelphelphelphelphelphelp) XD
    But I LOVE reading!!! When I find a stack at the library, I don’t stop reading for like two weeks 😂
    And WOW those books you got look amazing!! Will we get any reviews on them? 😶
    Also, sorry I missed your ice skating post! For some reason I never got a notification for it. Sorry about that! 😳😳😖🙁

  4. You should totally read Rochelle Wisoff-Fields books. Look her up on Amazon!!!! And yes, I’m afraid I have to concur with Aria Lisette and The Caramel Marshmallow– book addiction is something you will have to deal with for the rest of your life… but thankfully it isn’t something that you must bear alone! You have the rest of us bookdragons to comfort you 🙂

    1. Welp I thought I was doing good on the curbing book addiction and here’s another author I HAVE to check out! XD
      And yes, thank you. It helps to know I’m not the only one screaming my head off at a plot twist. (I actually did that once and my mom was worried 😛 )
