I have not composed a discussion post for quite some time, and I was thinking, what’s a good topic to talk about that I have not read a lot on? Then, I realized how I’m such a black sheep in the blogosphere. I really wished that wasn’t the case because honestly, I feel left out sometimes. I think some of the stuff I am going to list out here will shock you because a lot of you are the opposite of what I am going to mention.
1. I don’t fangirl. (Unless we’re talking about Across the Universe / Harry Potter)
I don’t know why guys. I just don’t.
2. I have not read popular book series
This includes Harry Potter (except the first book), The Mortal Instruments (I’m most likely not going to read it), Vampire Academy (except the first book), The Maze Runner, Throne of Glass (will do in the future though!)
3. I don’t get overly excited over book releases.
Which means I don’t pre-order books (I’ve never in my whole 18 years of existence pre-ordered a book), track down which books are going to be released, etc. I don’t really have a book I am anticipating for. If I feel like reading it, I’ll buy it, if I don’t, then I don’t. I don’t know why guys! This is so sad. I wish I was excited as you guys for the books that are going to be released. Of course I’m happy for the author that his/her book is finally coming out, but that’s it. I don’t go on Twitter saying “OMG *THIS BOOK* IS FINALLY HITTING THE SHELVES” or say “I’VE BEEN WANTING TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS EVER SINCE THE BOOK COVER WAS UP ON GOODREADS”. Sometimes, heck, I could even just wait for it to come out in paper back. That’s how long I could wait for a book.
4. I love contemporary books!
Again, unpopular opinion over here. I think most bloggers love fantasy or paranormal books, but my heart goes out to contemporary books. Most of my favorite books are contemporary because I could relate to the characters easily and the stories are just amazing.
5. I don’t ship any fictional characters
LOL y’all are probably looking at me weird. It’s true! If you asked me who I ship, my brain goes *crickets*. I like Tris and Four from Divergent, but I don’t ship them. For t.v. shows, I only ship two couples which are #CaptainSwan and #RumBelle (if you watch OUAT, you know who I’m talking about).
So yeah! Were you guys surprised? Are you a black sheep too?
