18 Things That Inevitably Happen When You're Addicted To Reading

Heroines are my heroin.

Posted on

1. When you're engrossed in a novel, you will always tell yourself, "Just one more chapter."

2. You will begin laughing randomly when you remember a funny moment from the book you were reading.

People won't get it. And they don't NEED to.

3. The book will ALWAYS be better than the movie.

4. You will read your favorite books over and over again.

Because they somehow get better every single time.


5. When you're reading before bed, you keep reading, because you can sleep when you're dead.

6. Most of your paycheck will go toward books.

The rest will go to, you know, staying alive.

7. You will turn down plans on the weekend because you have a date.

...With your books.

8. You will join various book clubs just to talk about books as much as you can.

9. You will show up to work on Monday hungover.

From your book ending.

10. You will walk by a book store and tell yourself you have enough books.

Then you'll walk in and buy some anyway. Because, obviously.

11. You'll see someone attractive reading a book and LOSE. YOUR. SHIT.

13. You will spend a ridiculous amount of time browsing Goodreads.

14. Your books will be your #1 priority.

15. You will start using slang and lingo from your books in daily conversation.

And people won't get it.

16. Your ideal vacation will be you, reading, uninterrupted.

17. Your books will be turned into tables and shelves, because you have so many.

And can't get rid of a single one.

18. And when the book you were reading ends, so does your life.

...Until you start the next one.
