Top Ten Bookish Confessions
hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
10. My favourite genre of music is Wizard Rock (Wrock)
It is music based on the Harry Potter series. My favourite bands include The Remus Lupins, Ministry of Magic, and The Moaning Myrtles. Listening to the wrock concerts at LeakyCon was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
9. I’m scared to reread Wheel of Time because it might not be as good as I remember
I started reading them when I was around ten, and I haven’t read one since high school. My opinions have changed quite a bit since then, so I’m really afraid that I’ll find I’ve outgrown it or that it contains some serious sexism that ruins the series for me.
8. I am incredibly biased towards my favourite authors
Like, to the point where I get insanely rage-y when someone insults their books. If it’s any other book, I can deal with the criticism, but the moment you touch one of my favourites I turn into a giant squid of anger.
7. I didn’t get Pride and Prejudice until I saw the movie
Granted, I was only about twelve when I first read it, but I had an incredibly hard time understanding who was speaking when to the point where I couldn’t follow the plot. It was only after watching the Keira Knightley version of the movie that I was able to keep all of the characters straight.
6. I prefer the Lord of the Rings movies
The books just have way too much singing, okay? And the books don’t have Orlando Bloom or Elijah Wood, so…
5. I cried when I met Maureen Johnson
I feel like I will never live this down.
4. I never went to a Harry Potter book release
And I regret it every single day of my life. On the other hand, I went to four midnight Harry Potter movie releases.
3. I still enjoy Twilight
I hate just about everything about it, but actually reading the first book is enjoyable for me. I just really enjoy snark, and I feel like there are some really great one-liners.
2. I always fall for the wrong guy
Sometimes this is because I just have really bad luck (Yuki ;A;) and other times it’s because for some reason I have a thing for the insanely evil guy… *cough* Warren and Draco *cough*
1. I have a horrible memory for character names
To the point where I will go to film my book reviews after having JUST FINISHED the book, and I cannot remember the protagonist’s name. Don’t even bother asking me about the characters a month ago. I figure it’s because my mind is too busy remembering all of the characters from the Harry Potter series. I am okay with this.
