Every reader has some regrets. Whether it be about a book or if it’s about not finishing a series. Since joining the bookish community I have had some regrets surrounding books and the bookish community.
Starting series but never finishing them
I have a problem when it comes to series. I am terrible at finishing them. I’ve even made a post about it. I’m currently trying to catch up with my series. However, it’s proving to be difficult. Why didn’t I just read the sequels when they came out? I don’t know either.
Not finding out about book conventions sooner.
This year we attended YALLfest and had a blast. It was amazing. I wish I could have started to go to cons like it years ago. It was the highlight of my year last year. Being able to interact with all of my online bookish friends and see authors I admire was amazing. I can’t wait to attend another convention!
Putting down books in the middle of reading them.
This is not a problem that I really face anymore. Previously though I would get halfway through a book and get distracted. Thus, future me has to now reread the whole book since I’ve forgotten so much of them. I really dislike past me.
Worrying too much about “the next big book”
When books come out and they have a lot of buzz around them I tend to want to drop everything and read them then. This hype can leave me underwhelmed. Also, it really has a negative effect on my TBR shelf.
Not being as involved in the community
I love this community. You are my people. I always regret when I fall off the wagon of talking to my bookish friends. Lately I have felt out of the loop and I am missing all of my bookish friends. Sometimes life just gets in the way of socializing. But, I hate when that happens.
So, those are my top 5 bookish regrets. Do you have any bookish “regrets” let me know what yours are!
