I have anxiety. Really bad, crippling, life controlling anxiety.
I’m breaking a few of my own rules here. This book was not on my to read list as discussed in a previous blog. I put a hold on it at the library and it happened to be available so I went ahead and checked it out, which is breaking another rule where I’m not supposed to put things on hold while I’ve got other things to read. Oh well.
I have been going back and forth about whether or not to write this blog. Then, once I decided I would write it, I chickened out about posting it a little bit. Not because I care if I piss people off, but because I don’t want to seem… pretentious? Full of it? I don’t know.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
eBooks got pretty big a few years ago, and now everyone is cashing in their 2 cents about whether the physical or digital book is better. Some swear by the ease and speed of eBooks, while some can’t lose the spark of nostalgia and joy they get from holding a story in their hand. Clearly you haven’t read enough blogs just like this one, so here’s my take on the whole thing.
Whoopdie doo time for another book review. That wasn’t as sarcastic as it sounded, I just thought I would be whimsical and start with a rhyme. You know what, let’s just forget that first sentence even happened.
Welcome to our April Book Anti-Haul, the post where I go through the new, best sellers on Amazon and tell you why there’s no way in hell I’m going to buy the book. I was inspired by Kimberly Clark, my favorite YouTuber. She’s a drag queen committed to helping other makeup lovers break the cycle of consumerism. In her videos, she talks about new makeup releases she’s not going to buy because they are too expensive, ridiculous, or otherwise not worth the money.
I know what you’re thinking. “But you never buy books! You get them at the library!” You know how they say ex-smokers are only one cigarette away from being smokers again? I’m only one book from being a book hoarder again. So yes, part of the reason I’m not going to buy any of these books is because it will open a flood gate of buying books, and there’s no way I’ll be able to read them in a timely fashion. But mostly, they look like a horrible waste of money. Let’s begin.
