Teaser Tuesday #17 and Top Ten #7

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Bloggers choose two sentences 

out our current read to peak others' curiosity. 

Undead by Kristy McKay


She stares at me like I have the mental capacity of a potato. "They die, they come back, they eat our brains!"

Empyreal Fate by Rachel Hunter

"Yes; such a blessing of Fate you are, my child... my sweet Navaeyeh," Jen would coo. "Soundly shall you mark the world. Your guidance will move kingdoms."

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
 The Broke and the Bookish that features 

a great bookish top ten every week.

Top Ten this week is my top ten bad bookish habits.

1. All my books in a series have to match. same format, same size, same cover style. If the covers change, I go out and buy all new ones.
2. I use really big doggie ears on my pages.
3. I smell every book before I buy it or read it. (embarrassed a little by this one. )
4. I can't talk about the book while reading, I give things away by mistake.
5. I am a book hoarder.
6. I am an organized (well I try to be) nut on Goodreads. Really its bad. should check it out.
7. I am probably more obsessed with books than what is healthy.
8. I have book ADD and read like 5 at once. This also happens because I forget where I leave books.
9. I am constantly calculating how many pages I have left. I even doggie ear the last page.
10. I make a list of books I read in 3 months, including how many pages or hours I will spend reading. I constantly remake the list because it never works out as planned. ( see way more obsessed than what is healthy)

Now that everyone knows how crazy and off balance I am what are your bad bookish habits?


  1. What a great teaser from Undead, I've been wanting to read that one. Here's my Teaser

  2. Good idea for a future top ten, I think! My worst book habit is that I spend more time deciding books to add to my Amazon wishlist than reading!

    Here's my
    Top Ten Books on Happiness.
    Please stop by!

  3. Is there a book hoarder program. Because I definitely need to join. The smelling books isn't weird. I love the way books smell. The hubby thinks I'm nuts though. Yay! A fellow multi book reader. I'm a mood reader so I have to have a little of everything at a time. :P Great list!

  4. There is no such thing as too obsessed with a book!!

  5. Okay, almost all of that was GPOY, except maybe book ADD. :O Damn! Especially #1, #3 and the Goodreads OCD. :'D

  6. I am totally a book hoarder too and also read multiple books at a time -- one on my kindle, one audiobook and one physical book.

    I love all these habits haha and I think they are common among our community!

  9. I'm definitely an obsessive book hoarder as well. I spend hours organizing and re-organizing my GR shelf. It is very bad...
