Top 5 Tuesday: Dramatic Bookworm Problems

Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!

Hello, reader!

It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! I’m really loving the prompts for September because, rather than being strictly about books, it’s about bookish things. Take, for instance, this week’s prompt. Today, I’ll be sharing my top five dramatic bookworm problems!

So buckle up because I’m about to rant 😂

#1. Falling out of love with a series… and it’s not even complete

This has happened to me a couple of time and one of the series is an epic fantasy standard. That’s right… I’m talking about the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan 😬 Look. When I read The Eye of the World, I was all in. I was D E D I C A T E D. I think I read the first book when there were only five books out and I did not realize how much longer the series was going to be. But that’s not why I stopped reading. I stopped reading because I just got bored. I felt like nothing was happening, nothing was moving forward, and, at the time, there was no end in sight! So I just stopped buying the books. Now that there is an end to the story, I have to admit I’m curious about revisiting the series. Especially since it was finished with the help of Brandon Sanderson. I’d have to start from the very beginning, though, and the thought is just daunting, haha. We’ll see…

#2. Reading one of your most anticipated reads… and being super underwhelmed

This has legit only happened to me once, but the feeling was such that I hope it never happens again 😩 I was so hyped for Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart. SO HYPED. And then I tried to read it and, oof… it was not a good time. I got about halfway through and I just couldn’t make myself continue. I was, again, so bored! Smart’s writing is incredible, but it also felt a bit repetitive. It felt like nothing was happening and I was worried the entire book was going to be like that. I’m bound and determine to give it another go, though, because I’ve heard the second half gets better. I also hate not completing books…
