[Top Ten Tuesday] 5 Types of Books You Claim To Love…But Have Betrayed

Firstly, this week’s topic was created just to make us feel the incomprehensible weight of guilt. How do I even list what I’ve forgotten about?

You guys are a bit sadistic, you know that?

Because I don’t want to go through this roller coaster of shame all by myself, I thought this would be a wonderful way to drag my lovely readers.

What? You think this blog runs on sunshine and cookies?

This week’s discussion is a tie in with Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl.



These books always top your list when asked about your favourites. Nothing can pull this book down from their pedestal! Absolutely nothing…that is, until your college professor asks you to analyze said book. So you take the high bookworm road and bury yourself into the deep earth.

You don’t believe in love at first sight until you spot this book on your read shelf in Goodreads. Then the world is tilting sideways, your pupils dilate & palms sweat, you can barely breathe from the glorious wonder of your first (ok, third) love.

These are the siren haunting, sticks to you like sin books.

Because when someone asks you what they’re about, suddenly oxygen doesn’t seem as important as it used to. These are the books you ALWAYS recommend. When someone asks you to recommend a book, suddenly Wuthering Heights is on the top of your list but why?

It’s got awesome ghosts, bruh.


Ah, fanfiction. The drug to my  bookish daydreams, the fuel to my fictional girlfriends’ heart, and the undoing of my mind palace.

Remember those moments after reading the book, that momentary still of your emotions, when the world felt massive and you could do just about anything?

And by anything, I mean you bookmarked ten different fanfictions and settled yourself down with chocolate popcorn.

You love this book with all your heart, at least, the first book anyway. What happens in book two is beyond what your free time can handle. These are books you swear you’d get to…uh, eventually. You might have even bought the entire set already which has now become a prop for your bookstagram photos.

    Haha, I loved this post! 😀 True, it’s always a shame when I recommend something but forget why I’m recommending it XD I’m definitely surprised by Game Of Thrones and HP Deathly Hallows but I won’t judge…sometimes. Also, no matter how much I think I’ll get back to read that book I loved but forgot, it’s usually a far-fetched option and haha (shameless me) it might not happen in the near future. 😀

    Hahaha I love this post so, so much. I don’t often buy series in sets, but I can relate to the thing where you just read the first book in a series, then forget to read the sequel for like, a couple months or years. Oops. It’s not even that the series is bad it’s just… HOW DO YOU PRIORITIZE BOOKS? It’s so hard, haha. And I get so mad at myself whenever I can’t remember one of my favorite books in details. I guess we read too many books to remember everything, though, but it is a bit frustrating haha 🙂

    Nice post! I think we’re all guilty of some of these. I’m especially guilty of having only read the first book in a series.
    I’ve actually been hankering for a reread of some of my favorites. There’s a chapter book series that I adored in gradeschool. I remember basically nothing about them. I also want to give Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton a reread this year. I think it’ll be my fourth time. I remember the book okay, but I get the memories mixed with the movie (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, btw).

    When I saw the topic, I was also thinking, “But if I’ve forgotten the books, how would I remember them to put them in a list?” Lol. I love your take on it though! And these are so accurate. I used to be even worse in high school. At least now, I usually recognize the books I read and can tell you what the premise was. In high school, sometimes I’d look through my shelf and legit be like, “Have I read this?” or I’d know I read it but literally had not the slightest recollection of what it was about lol.

    this is such a fun take on this post!!! also so relatable??? when i first got a goodreads i was marking books read left and right. like…checked this book out from the library 3 years ago?? check! the fifteenth a to z mysteries book? read! my favorite book from when i was 6? read!!! & then i was going thru recently like……”none of these ratings are accurate.”
    great post!

    A great take on TTT 😀 I always think that it’s only human to forget books though! And I’m glad GR exists xD when you’ve read as many books as an average book blogger, you can’t really keep them all in your head. And then again, maybe it’s good we forget… it means we can reread 😀
