We all know that I’m a very picky reader. Being a very picker has its cons – I easily get angry when something happens in a book that I really, really don’t like or don’t condone. Like for example, in the latest book I read, there was this character who stumbled upon very important information that would help her Kingdom fight against something that could mean their life and death. Instead of sharing this important tidbit, the character decided to be and ass and refrain from telling them, using this lame-ass reason, “I’m not sure if I should, because I’m not sure if I’m sure.”
Well, it wasn’t like that, but that was the gist of that monologue. My reaction?
What the bloody fuck?
Other times, it’s when a superficial insta-love happens. Sometimes, it’s when a cringe-worthy romance takes over the rest of the book. Oftentimes, it’s when the asshole douchebag is portrayed as the romeo to our juliet, all his disgusting actions thinly disguised as “swoon-worthy”.
After having been angry many, many times with many, many books and many, many characters, I noticed something.
I actually have a pattern. Or a ritual. When I’m raging.
It totally blew my mind away how my behavior was so predictable when something in a book upset me. So, if you see me doing any of these things, my friends, don’t think I’m a mad woman on the loose – I’m just coping with a bad book.
What about you guys? Can you relate? Do you have your own book ritual?
